Trump’s Goons Set Loose on Cities Across the Nation: Some ICE raids Currently Underway
As promised, ICE raids are in progress across the country, as announced by the Trump administration and widely reported.
There have been over 2000 immigrants targeted for arrest in a host of major cities: New York, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Houston, San Francisco and New Orleans. It appears, possibly as a tactic, that smaller rural communities are also seeing action.
Mayors in some cities have spoken out strongely against the actions, such as New York’s Mayor de Blasio as seen in the above tweet. The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs added a video to remind those affected of their options under the law.
The video reminds those targets and any other immigrants that they have the right to refuse to open their doors and do not have to respond, according to the law in New York City, for example.
According to witnesses in areas already targeted in New York, people appear to be avoiding going out in public and streets are quieter than usual.
In what was likely not a coincidence, on Saturday, Trump chose to hurl xenophobic insults at Democrat Congresswomen, implying that they are not American and should “go back and help fix” the “places from which they came” :
The tweets, clearly meant for the progressive wing of the Democratic Congress, were not only racist and xenophobic but also, as is sadly, no surprise, wrong. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was born in New York City, Rashida Tlaib was born in Detroit and Massachusetts Congresswoman, Ayanna S. Pressley was born in Cincinnati. Only Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, was born outside the country, in Somalia.
“You are angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us. You rely on a frightened America for your plunder.– Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in Tweet responding to trump’s tirade
You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.”
The LA Times reported, in an interview with Melissa Taveras of the Florida Immigrant Commission, based in Miami, that the onset of possible raids was like waiting for a hurricane:
“The overall environment is very much like a hurricane: When is it going to come, is it going to hit us, is it going to move north?” she said. “We have people in Homestead, Little Havana, Little Haiti — where we know there are concentrations of immigrants — distributing ‘know your rights’ pamphlets. That seems to be effective because we’re already hearing reports of people not opening their doors.”
Her organization was advising families to be sure to have a relative or attorney’s contact information memorized in order to contact them, if detained, and that they need to be sure to give them details of where they are taken, along with full name and birthday, in order to help try and get them released, if arrested.
