King City police accused of targeting undocumented workers in towing scandal

In King City, a community of 13,000 rimmed by an agricultural region touted as the “Salad Bowl of the World,” farmworkers told of being pulled over as they headed home after exhausting days harvesting lettuce, peppers and onions. Working with a local towing company, police were regularly seizing cars, often from undocumented laborers who could not produce the driver’s licenses necessary to retrieve the vehicles from the storage yard.
