Queens school turns away immigration agent looking for 4th grade student
An immigration agent without a warrant tried to search a Queens elementary school for a student, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office said Saturday. The immigration agent showed up at P.S. 58 on Thursday asking about a student in 4th grade, Mayoral spokesman Eric Phillips said. The school turned him away. “As a mother, I am deeply troubled and horrified at this attempt on the part of federal immigration agents to reach any child in our schools,” said Queens Borough President Melinda Katz.
