U.S. Prepares to Arrest Thousands of Immigrant Family Members - NYT

Quote:
Nationwide raids to arrest thousands of members of undocumented families have been scheduled to begin Sunday, according to two current and one former homeland security officials, moving forward with a rapidly changing operation, the final details of which remain in flux. The operation, backed by President Trump, had been postponed, partly because of resistance among officials at his own immigration agency.

The raids, which will be conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement over multiple days, will include “collateral” deportations, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the preliminary stage of the operation. In those deportations, the authorities might detain immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even though they were not targets of the raids.

When possible, family members who are arrested together will be held in family detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania. But because of space limitations, some might end up staying in hotel rooms until their travel documents can be prepared. ICE’s goal is to deport the families as quickly as possible.

The officials said ICE agents were targeting at least 2,000 immigrants who have been ordered deported — some as a result of their failure to appear in court — but who remain in the country illegally. The operation is expected to take place in at least 10 major cities.

L.A. is on the ICE list for this weekend.

Several organizations have posted summaries of rights that people subjected to such raids have. ICE might disregard these, adding to the case against them, but if people don't use them, we'll never know.

Some other people might be inspired to commit civil disobedience by laying in front of vehicles or whatever. Don't forget to contact the National Lawyer's Guild first, for instructions that might save your life. Also write their phone number on your arm using Sharpie or similar, for your one phone call from jail.

ICE raids: Immigration law firm worker says silent raids in SoCal have already begun - ABC7

Quote:
Security cameras captured at least 15 ICE agents Monday going to the home of a local family.

"It's just exhausting. And I think they're trying to do that, they're trying to exhaust us - kind of scare us or tire us into just self-deporting," Sanchez said.

ICE raids are expected to start Sunday across 10 U.S. cities, including Los Angeles.

"There's people that literally stock up like it was the end of the world, like 1999. I've known people that have stocked up with like hundreds of water bottles, just in case something terrible happens like right now, as they perceive it," Sanchez said.

On June 17, President Donald Trump threatened the deportation of millions of people, but they were called off at the last minute so Congress could work on legislation.

But Sanchez said any raid, announced or not, shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

"Immigration raids of this nature are not new. They're just heightened by the Trump administration. But these raids have been going on under Democrat and Republican rule for over 20 years," Sanchez added.

Sanchez said the fear of raids is affecting the mental health of the undocumented community.

Activists suggest undocumented immigrants know their rights - like the local family who was nearly arrested on Monday.

Border patrol personnel sharing unofficial coin mocking care for migrants: report

Some members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are sharing copies of an unofficial commemorative coin that appears to mock the care of migrant children, according to a ProPublica story published Friday.

The report noted that members of the agency working at offices in California and Texas have been sharing the "challenge coin," which is engraved on one side to show a crowd of migrant "caravans" with an inscription that reads "Keep the caravans coming."

Ex-ICE chief blasts House Democrat after tense hearing: 'He ran out of there like a little girl'

Former acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Thomas Homan bashed Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) on Friday night after the pair clashed in a hearing earlier in the day focused on conditions at facilities near the border.

Homan appeared on Fox Business' "Lou Dobbs Tonight" to recap his congressional testimony on Friday before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, which included a number of fireworks between himself and House Democrats.

Ahead of ICE raids, Miami advocacy groups set up secret shelters for immigrants in fear
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/ ... 86282.html

An expected crackdown by immigration authorities throughout the country on Sunday is spreading panic among undocumented immigrants in South Florida, with some families deciding to leave their homes or the state altogether, and advocates preparing safe sanctuary spaces in secret locations for those seeking to avoid being caught up in the raids.

“It feels like the apocalypse,” a spokesperson for a national immigrant advocacy group said. “But unfortunately you have to do what you have to do.”

One Florida group told the Miami Herald it is readying various private homes in advance of Sunday’s deportation efforts, as well as canvassing neighborhoods statewide and passing out fliers on immigrant rights in English, Spanish and Creole.

“We are holding info sessions, knocking on doors, talking to people in flea markets and restaurants; we’re staffing up our volunteers and lawyers, as well as providing an option for people who may feel threatened and unsafe in their homes,” said a spokesperson for the group, who requested anonymity to talk about the preparations.

Another advocacy group with a national profile said it is gathering supplies like sleeping bags and food to distribute to some of their employees’ homes and churches where families might decide to seek shelter.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are expected to target the homes of thousands of immigrant families with deportation orders Sunday in Miami, as well as Atlanta, Baltimore/Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles and San Diego, New Orleans, New York City, and San Francisco.

Several national and local organizations, as well as immigration lawyers and immigrant families, which agreed to speak with the Miami Herald, asked not to be identified because it is against the law to harbor undocumented immigrants. ICE officials declined to comment when the Herald asked about the agency’s stance on sheltering undocumented immigrants.

[snip]

Aside from offering families a safe haven, thousands of immigration attorneys nationwide are equipping their clients with information. On Thursday, the American Immigration Lawyers Association sent out a mass email with resources on “knowing your rights,” as well as links to “local raids response hotlines,” and ICE detention locators.

“[We have been] reaching out to [our] contacts and working with partners to prepare for a possible massive enforcement action,” Gregory Z. Chen, American Immigration Lawyers Association’s director of government relations, said in an email, which references a resources web page the group created. “These resources are the most comprehensive of any I have seen and include both national and local government as well as non-government and local community resources.”

The mass deportation efforts were originally slated to start late last month but were delayed after the Herald and other media revealed the agency’s plan to round up thousands of immigrant families.

Law enforcement sources told the Herald that Sunday’s operation is expected to be smaller than that previously planned, but that people with deportation orders will still be the target. They also said they would be asking other members of the household of an undocumented immigrant for their immigration documents.

Because South Florida doesn’t have family detention centers, ICE will utilize area hotels to hold families for a maximum of 24 hours before they are transferred to facilities out of state. Local jails may also be used for adults.

Much like the “response” to 9/11 in terms of airport security the government’s response to the presence of those here without proper papers has been pathetic. I expect no less. And this is not limited to Trump’s regime. For decades we have not dealt with the issue in any substantive manner. It is even more foolish to think we would do so now with the Velveeta Vulgarian in place.

:rofl:

You know what I think of the misbegotten agency that was obviously created to terrorize immigrants by searching out the ones without their papers in order, and putting them on ICE.

Several hundred people were doing the candle vigil thing at the grim Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown L.A. last night. It's the big square brutalist building with the ominous slits for windows. It's intimidating just looking at the thing. It competes with The Tombs in NYC for general grimness.

Someone was shining a flashlight out of one of the ominous slits. I wasn't there, having lit my candle somewhere closer to home, but twitter has footage.

U.S. Cities Prepare For Planned ICE Raids

On Friday President Trump confirmed reports that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement plans to conduct nationwide sweeps to arrest thousands of undocumented immigrant families that the government says have missed a court appearance or have been issued court-ordered removals from the country.

"It starts on Sunday, and they're going to take people out, and they're going to bring them back to their countries, or they're going to take criminals out — put them in prison or put them in prison in the countries they came from," Trump said outside of the White House.

I’ve been saying for over a year this is Fugitive Slave Law era behavior.

It also resembles post-Reichstag Fire behavior, in that a leader is lying about a common enemy and assuming powers beyond the constitution, and no one is putting up a realistic challenge.

Most Americans of my generation grew up in an environment where we believed the Nazi era was a corrosive blight, and one that could never happen in North America or again in Europe.

Here we are, and this time the blight is here.

Yes but the precedents for this come from our own history instead of Germany’s. Smallpox blankets, Manifest Destiny, reservations, Indian Boarding schools, forced adoptions, internment, relocation, that’s what this is.

Good on you for the candle. Glad you liked the Velveeta Vulgarian. I have give props to TheFerret over at Democratic Underground for it.

Agree, and not to forget the KKK--the most popular "fraternal organization/club" in the country at its height, including the northern states. Still, there was a veneer of "American goodness" in what was taught us in our schools, but now, the Cheese Whiz on faux Ritz executive have added the Nazis to the pantheon of American horror--openly.

Few arrests in feared US immigration raids

US authorities launched small-scale operations to arrest undocumented families over the weekend in a start to President Donald Trump's plan to deport thousands of immigrants.

The multi-day operation was expected to target hundreds of recently-arrived families in about 10 cities who have been ordered deported by an immigration judge.

All I can say is once again I'm glad, with regard to these raids, that Donald once again seems to have been a lot of bluster, and little actual action.

Maybe I'm paying attention to the wrong blogs, but it doesn't seem like much actually happened in Miami today, at least ICE-wise.

Immigration Activists Monitoring Feds On Bike And Foot - WBEZ

Quote:
Chicago’s immigrant communities were on edge Sunday morning while activists mobilized to report and observe expected raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. President Donald Trump has been threatening mass arrests Sunday of people who are in the United States illegally.

At 8 AM activists gathered outside a detention center in west-suburban Broadview where deportees are often held after arrest. The three dozen protesters chanted “abolish ICE.” By 8:45 the protesters dispersed after Broadview police told them to leave because they didn’t have permission to be there.

In Pilsen dozens of people went door-to-door to provide information to residents about their rights. They didn’t knock on the doors to avoid igniting fears that they were actually federal agents.

Rev. Jose Landaverde, with Faith, Life and Hope Mission on Chicago’s Southwest Side, has opened the doors to his mission to welcome undocumented immigrants afraid of the raids.

Landaverde said he helped about 10 families move because at least one member of the family has a removal order.

In the Albany Park neighborhood activists fanned out on foot and in bike brigades to monitor potential raids.

“I came because I wanted to be more informed and involved and not just keep at a distance while people are suffering,” said area resident Paul Brennan “So when I saw this opportunity, I decided to take it.”

The effort was organized by aldermen including Rosanna Rodriguez Sanchez, 33rd ward.

ICE Launches Raids Targeting Migrant Families - NYT

Quote:
Liza, a teenager who lives with her parents in Passaic, N.J., was awakened early Sunday morning by a knock on the door. Having seen numerous “know your rights” posts on Instagram, she said she knew not to open it.

A small number of coordinated federal raids targeting undocumented migrant parents and their children took place over the weekend, the beginning of the Trump administration’s plan to swiftly enforce deportation orders against some 2,000 recently arrived migrants who are not eligible to remain in the country.

Only a handful of arrests appeared to take place, and they were reported in just a few cities. That was much different than the nationwide show of force that had originally been planned, in which Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were expected to fan out in unison on Sunday morning across immigrant communities in major cities. But the authorities said that more arrests would follow through the week.

The plans for the operation were changed at the last minute because of news reports that had tipped off immigrant communities about what to expect, according to several current and former Department of Homeland Security officials. Instead of a large simultaneous sweep, the authorities created a secondary plan for a smaller and more diffuse scale of apprehensions to roll out over roughly a week. Individual ICE field offices were given the discretion to decide when to begin, one official said.

The first reports of ICE activity came in on Friday and Saturday. In Chicago, a mother was apprehended with her daughters, but the family was immediately released under supervision according to a person familiar with the operation. ICE agents approached at least one other home in the area, but the woman inside refused to answer the door, according to local news reports.
