Federal Immigration Officials Could Have Accessed BPS Reports05:25


Boston Public Schools and U.S. Immigration Custom Enforcement agency, or ICE, have both publicly denied sharing information about students.

However, there is renewed concern among immigration advocates that a Boston School Police report about an altercation between students was shared with a database of local, state, and federal law enforcement, which ICE officials could access.

Advocates say they fear the existence of "school to deportation pipeline" in Boston.
