Memphis-based journalist Manuel Duran will likely remain in immigration detention for several more months following a decision today by a judge in Louisiana to deny his release on bond, The Commercial Appeal reports. A native of El Salvador, Duran is well-known in Memphis for his years of appearances on Spanish-language radio stations. More recently, he was running his own news outlet, Memphis Noticias. He was arrested along with several others while covering a protest outside the criminal justice center in Memphis on April 3.
