Mayor de Blasio demanded an end to ICE agents posing as NYPD officers
In uptown Manhattan, an immigrant family man was apprehended by ICE agents who was pretending to be NYPD officers.
Fernando Santos-Rodriguez is a 48-year-old undocumented immigrant who spent 30 years of his life in New York. His wife said she was tricked into helping ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents.
ICE agents went to the Santos-Rodriguez residence and initially, Maria, Fernando’s wife, refused to let the agents in.
The agents found an alternative entrance through the building’s superintendent.
The agents showed Maria a picture of a man who was not Santos-Rodriguez but went by the same name.
Thinking it was an innocent mix up, Maria gave the agents her husband’s contact information after the agents requested to see her husband’s ID.
