FOX 7 Discussion: ICE arrests in Austin

"I believe that 'Immigration' overreacted and I believe that it may have been a little politically based," said Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez on Wednesday.

His mugshot can't be released, Austin Police say -- but 33-year-old Julio Cesar Mendoza-Cabellero has quite the rap sheet.
According to ICE he was convicted of stealing a firearm in Hopkins County back in 2008. 

Last month, Mendoza-Cabellero was booked into the Travis County Jail for "assault with injury," a Class A misdemeanor. ICE sent out a press release this week claiming they filed a detainer on June 16th but the county released him that same day without telling them.

TCSO responded saying the detainer request did not contain an order of removal as ICE claimed. 

Joining us to talk more about this topic of immigration attorney, Thomas Esparza Junior.
