Agents who work for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement in California have found that they're so unpopular even other law enforcement officers want nothing to do with them, the Los Angeles Times reports.
In the Times story, ICE agents complain that people are calling the police on them as they try to operate—or even when they try to get coffee in the city.
