The ACLU of Southern California, along with a coalition of civil rights groups, is supporting a call from California Assembly speaker Fabian Nu�ez and 22 other California lawmakers to stop immigration workplace raids in the state until an investigation determines whether federal agencies are following the law.

Last February, during a raid in Van Nuys by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of the toner manufacturer MicroSolutions Enterprise, more than 130 people were arrested, intimidated into talking to the officers, and barred from consulting with attorneys or relatives before being questioned.
