Lukasz Niec was 5 years old when his parents brought him and his sister to the United States from Poland. With two suitcases in tow, his parents — both doctors — left behind a country on the verge of social turmoil. It was 1979, about two years before the country’s authoritarian communist government declared martial law.
"ICE Detains a Polish Doctor and Green-Card Holder Who Has Lived in the U.S. for Nearly 40 Years" is from the January 22, 2018 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Samantha Schmidt and narrated by Sam Scholl.
