ICE Locks Up U.S. Citizen for Seven Months; She Sues

"Immigration officials imprisoned a U.S. citizen for seven months and when she sued for the abuse tried to revoke her citizenship in retaliation, the woman claims in court.  Sharon Arlanza Yost sued the United States in Federal Court. ... Yost seeks damages for negligence, false imprisonment, and negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress. ... She is represented by Trina Realmuto with the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild of Boston." - Rebekah Kearn, Courthouse News Service, Oct. 22, 2013.
