Abolish ICE: Man with Down syndrome arrested

My latest - on the arrest of a man with Down syndrome and the campaign to #AbolishICE
"Juan Gaspar-García, a 22-year-old man with Down syndrome, came to this country from Guatemala the year after his mother died. He was 14 at the time, and his father and siblings were in Florida. From the outside, it would seem as though the move worked well: Gaspar-García has graduated from high school and works with one of his brothers for TentLogix, an event-rental company. He's also undocumented. Now, after a raid last month by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Gaspar-García is facing the risk of deportation back to a country that he doesn't know.
Instances like this one demonstrate why more and more people—not just radical leftists—are arguing that we need to abolish ICE."
