Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Shakedown: How Deportation Robs Immigrants of their Possessions and Money

Rate this Entry
No More Deaths has just released a report entitled Shakedown: How Deportation Robs Immigrants of their Possessions and Money.

"Shakedown uses four years of data accumulated from No More Deaths’s Property Recovery Assistance Project to expose the widespread practices of the US Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement wherein they deport people with nothing more than the clothes on their backs—and then destroy or appropriate their property left behind.

In the 165 money-specific cases highlighted in the report, a total of $37,025 US dollars would have been lost if no help were available. Of this total, $12,850 (35%) was recovered with assistance.Shakedown exposes exactly how and why deportation strips people of their belongings and reports on the terrible consequences for immigrants deported without their money, IDs, cell phones, and other belongings."
