BALTIMORE —The WBAL-TV I-Team has new arrest numbers, showing the stepped-up crackdown on undocumented immigrants in Maryland. The numbers seem to make it clear the new direction of the Trump administration.
The I-Team requested the data from immigration and customs officials. They don't break it down by jurisdiction, but in southeast Baltimore, there is a large immigrant population.
It's now been five weeks since Jesus Peraza was arrested in southeast Baltimore after dropping his 10-year-old son off at school. WBAL-TV 11 News spoke with his family March 24.
"When did you find out he had been detained?" I-Team lead investigative reporter Jayne Miller said.
"When my uncle went to pick me up, he told me," said Anderson, Peraza son.
