L.A.P.D. to Modify Immigrant Status Policy

Los Angeles Police Department Chief William Bratton is looking to modify a decades-old policy that currently forbids L.A.P.D. officers from asking suspects about their immigration status. Bratton insists that his new plan to allow cops to question suspected criminals about their citizenship will not harm immigrant communities — but some activists are worried about the potential for racial profiling.
