It’s only been a few days since an Omni Air flight carrying 36 deportees, rounded up and detained by ICE earlier this year, landed in Cambodia. But already, immigrant communities in the Bay Area and across California are bracing themselves for more.

ICE Office In South Bay Draws Allegedly Blocked Attorneys From Seeing Immigrants

MORGAN HILL — Officials at an under-the-radar ICE facility in Morgan Hill have allegedly prevented attorneys from meeting with immigrants brought to the building. 

Detainees brought here three times in recent weeks have been held in vans for extended periods, which attorney Luis Angel Reyes Savalza said is inhumane. 

"They held immigrants here for prolonged periods of time," said Reyes Savalza. "They held them in vans from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and when attorneys showed up to represent these individuals — which is a constitutional right that every individual has in this country — they were denied access to attorneys."
