Berkeley Recycling Director Faces Deportation to Unknown Country

Family members, co-workers, and community members are calling for the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency to release Daniel Maher. Maher has helped run the Berkeley curb side Recycling program for over 10 years, being a strong advocate for environmental protection and leading community activism around the environment and racial injustice. Last month Maher was picked up and detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The agency is looking to deport Maher to China after 20 years of inaction. Pacifica's Mike Kohn reports from San Fransisco.
