QUESTION: one-day hunger strike at INS detention center in Los Angeles in 2000?

question / pregunta: 

In August 2000, during or around the time of the Democratic National Convention, male and female detainees at the San Pedro Service Processing Center (in downtown Los Angeles) staged a one-day hunger strike to protest the center's conditions. According to an interview with one of the detainees, some of their demands were met and there was some media coverage. Where would I find past media coverage about the hunger strike and/or what conditions were changed because of the hunger strike?

answer 1837


The most that i have found on the issue of green-card fraud/forgery has to do with Department of Homeland Security statistics on identity fraud in their Yearbook of Immigration Statistics.

I offer these years:

Yearbook of Immigration Statistics: 2004

Yearbook of Immigration Statistics: 2005

Yearbook of Immigration Statistics: 2006

I'm not sure how much that helps, to be honest.

This was certainly an obscure question. In such a case, i believe it to be very useful if the questioner (you, reader!) can include sources of what you've already found, which may lead us librarians (or not) to more information that you desire.

QUESTION: reality about green card fraud

question / pregunta: 

I'm doing a story about the proposed changes being made to green cards, and one of the reasons DHS is giving for recalling green cards without expiration dates is that green cards are often passed on to other people and used in forging identities. I'd like to find statistics about how common this practice actually is, and about the number of fraudulent green cards vs. the number of fraudulent driver's licenses that are circulating in the U.S. Any information would be appreciated; my deadline is Wednesday.
