East Palo Alto family says they were harassed by men claiming to be ICE

Published Friday March 10

Bounty hunters entered home, interrogated family about immigration status

"No. I have address that is permanent," she said.

Permanent? You’re a resident, though.

So — how about you? the man asked Pinto.

OK — and you? he asked Pinto’s mother, Margerita Pinto.

She’s a citizen, Pinto said.

You’re all citizens here, the man said.

Yes, Saldana replied. Everybody’s citizens.

About one-and-half mins. into the questioning, Saldana leaned into the camera and whispered in Spanish:

Immigration just came here to our house.

The incident also calls into question the tactics bounty hunters use to capture fugitives.

But ICE officials refuted Hudgins’ claims.
