    Immigration rights group says LAPD violated policy

    Immigration rights group says LAPD violated policy in vice raid on 'hostess club'
    November 11, 2010
    Los Angeles police are defending their handling of a raid at a downtown hostess club -- an operation that resulted in dozens of arrests of illegal immigrant workers -- after an advocacy group charged that the vice operation violated Special Order 40, a policy governing how officers interact with immigrants.

    Advocates from the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles said the LAPD officers violated that policy in arresting 81 women and seven men Friday at the 907 Club on Hill Street. The advocacy group said most of those arrested were "honest, hard-working immigrants" who might themselves have been victims of abuse.

    "The LAPD has acted rashly by arresting those it claims to protect and in the process endanger the delicate balance between local policing and immigration enforcement," CHIRLA director Angelica Salas said in a statement.

    Special Order 40 prohibits LAPD officers from initiating contact with someone solely to determine whether they are in the country legally. But in a statement released Wednesday, the LAPD said the four-month probe was only related to alleged criminal conduct and was not an immigration investigation.

    "It is strictly an investigation into labor code violations, human trafficking concerns, prostitution, possession of fraudulent California identification cards, gambling and violation of a conditional use permit," the department said.

    Club 907, like similar "hostess club" establishments, is regulated by the Los Angeles Police Commission. Patrons pay women who work at the clubs for time and companionship that includes talking, buying non-alcoholic drinks or dancing. The club charges $30 per hour, with discounts on certain days of the week.

    The Police Commission permit prohibits hostess clubs from serving alcohol and does not allow nudity or other adult entertainment. But the LAPD said that during a four-month investigation their officers witnessed or found evidence of prostitution, lewd conduct, gambling and the use of counterfeit identification.

    Police said that on the day of the arrests, they found more than 400 people inside the 907 Club, which had a maximum capacity of 250 patrons.


    Officers said they found dozens of female dancers employed by the club with false identification for purposes of employment and found evidence that most were engaging in prostitution. Some 88 people were arrested -- 81 of them women. Only three were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit prostitution: a club manager, and two women who were brought in to dance in bikinis and were allowed to be groped by patrons, police said.

    Of the others, 59 were arrested on suspicion of possession of fraudulent California identification, 18 for willfully obtaining personal information, four for gambling violations, two for misdemeanor warrants, one for interfering with police operations and one for violating the club's conditional use permits.

    A 17-year-old girl who had been reported missing was found inside and was also arrested on suspicion of possessing false identification. Police also seized two bags of cocaine, over $100,000 in cash, condoms, and liquor.

    A 29-year-old club worker who was out on bail Wednesday after her arrest on suspicion of possessing fraudulent identification said that while the women were detained inside the club, officers asked those with “good IDâ€

    Same tired rhetoric....the fact of the matter is this immigrants rights group says this anytime an illegal invader gets arrested. Apparently, they do not believe any invader should ever be arrested.

    Many of them play victim and end up being allowed to stay. I have seen some of that within the Eastern European community. Some fo those women know that if they are smuggled here they will end up in the sex industry be it prostitution, porn, and/or stripping and come anyways. The reason is they know that if the police catch those who brought them over they will get away with playing the vitcim and be allowed to stay. The most common sob story is that they can not go back as they will be harassed as well as their family and they may end up being killed.

    What's the problem?

    Obama's going to give them work permits.
    Many of the workers arrested by immigration agents last month in a Bellingham work site raid have been released and given permission to work.

    About 64% abscond when placed on probation.

    More than half them wont even get deported.
    Federal immigration judges in Los Angeles rejected 63 percent of deportation requests

    delicate balance between local policing and immigration enforcement


    There should be no difference between the two.
