In the Spanish-language media today, outrage over Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) programs, especially 287(g), continues to simmer. A new study on access to social services also receives coverage, and La Opinión scores an interview with immigrant-bashing California gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner.

Citizen kids & social services. There are 5.5 million children in the country who have at least one undocumented parent; 73% of those kids are U.S. citizens.
