Immigration And Customs Enforcement (ICE) moves to arrest, charge and deport hundreds of illegal aliens in the US in surge signaling imminent enforcement of President Trump’s Jan 25, 2017 order cracking down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the US illegally.
Trump has pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records.
ICE agents in LA arrest a number of individuals in an hour, seizing them from their homes and on their way to work,
That undocumented immigrants with no criminal records are (also being) arrested and may be deported sends a shock wave through immigrant communities nationwide raising the question of whether the U.S. government could start going after ‘law-abiding’ (but still undocumented aka illegal) people (or not).
“This is the first wave of attacks under the Trump administration, and we know this isn’t going to be the only one,” Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream, an immigrant youth organization, says.
