U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., has introduced a bill that would stop immigration enforcement from targeting people at schools, hospitals, churches and courthouses.

Blumenthal says reports that ICE detained a father dropping his children off at school in California have created a climate of fear.
