An e-mail obtained by the Associated Press under the Freedom of Information Act suggests a strong link between a New Haven ordinance creating an ID card program for illegal immigrants and a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers that arrested 30 immigrants in the city one day later. The city’s mayor claims the e-mail, from New Haven agents to the ICE director, shows the raid was retaliatory. (1/28/08)
