Here is an out of the box immigration detention story from The Insider. Anna Sorokin has been in Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention for seven months. Sorokin, a German national who hit the headlines (and here) when she scammed New York's SoHo scene pretending to be heiress "Anna Delvey," was released from state prison in February after serving a sentence on theft and larceny charges. In March 25, ICE detained Sorokin because she had overstayed her visa. An immigration court ruled that Sorokin should remain in custody pending deportation.
Sorokin is the subject of the BBC podcast Fake Heiress.
