Lawsuit: ICE Attorney Forged Document

"A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement attorney forged a document in an attempt to deport an immigrant seeking to stay in the country with his wife and children, according to a new lawsuit.  The lawsuit, filed Thursday in a Seattle U.S. District Court, seeks $500,000 in damages for Ignacio Lanuza-Torres because the alleged forgery cost him years of courtroom battles. Lanuza-Torres is now a legal U.S. resident." - Manuel Valdes, Associated Press, Oct. 23, 2014.
