Hundreds of Middle Eastern immigrants are in California jails after coming forward to comply with the new rule, which was put into effect on 12/16. to register with immigration authorities, only to wind up handcuffed and behind bars. Those who fail to comply with the new ruling face criminal charges and immediate expulsion from the country.
