8:16 pm
taken to offices like the one in stockton that hasn't been active in the last few months so therefore doesn't have immigration attorneys on standby there.. so those taken there aren't getting the opportunity to talk to a laweyer. advocates also say that some people are being swept away to detention centers outside of the north california within a matter of 12 hours. so they are not only far away from their families.. but also far away from any resources such as legal advice. we understand from legal experts that detainees do have a right to attorneys.. although it is not guaranteed the way it is in criminal cases. and advocates here say.. the way ice is operating is not only affecting undocumented immigrants.. but
