An undocumented immigrant from West Haven has been arrested by federal immigration agents in Connecticut and activists say the man’s 9-year-old son was used “as bait” to lure the immigrant in so he could be taken into custody.
A lawyer for Mynor Espinoza, the undocumented immigrant arrested June 5, said Friday that asking parents to sign federal documents for their children in order to arrest the parents appears to be a new and disturbing tactic by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Connecticut.
