ICE detainee fights to be released to Oakland after nearly 4 years in custody

Walter Cruz-Zavala says his prolonged detention is unconstitutional, borders on persecution and he is demanding that he be released from custody. And his case comes at a time when activists hold fresh hopes that a new presidential administration will overturn nearly a half-decade of Trump-era anti-immigration policies.

"We want to pressure the new administration since Day One, so they don't forget about the undocumented immigrants," said one of the organizers, Gabriel Manrique. "We've been here before, the Democrats promising immigration reform, especially when Obama was president, nothing happened. So we want to start pressuring them so it happens in the first 100 days."
