INS and Alien Amnesty Effort

March 20, 1988

INS, where are you when we need you?

Why is it that you always read about the Immigration and Naturalization Service making its infamous "sweeps" in the cities of Anaheim, Stanton, Santa Ana, Orange and Los Angeles but not in the little old town of Huntington Beach, where in a one-square-block area we have undocumented people who are arrested almost on a weekly basis (on suspicion of) crimes such as burglary, assault, petty theft and dope sales?

These people are back on the street within a few days, doing the same things over and over again.

Why doesn't INS sweep this one-block area like they do in other cities? Don't they know how to get to Huntington Beach?

Sweep Huntington Beach in the area of Commodore Circle. It's half a block off Beach Boulevard at Main Street, and if that is not enough direction, call Auto Club of Southern California and they will supply you with a map.
