Immigration Raids Alert: Prepare for Raids and Protect Yourself! (NILC, 1/16)
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has begun arresting and detaining Central Americans who are fleeing violence in their home countries and who were ordered deported after January 1, 2014. NILC and other groups strongly oppose this policy and will continue to demand that it be stopped. According to news reports, immigration agents are going to people’s homes to pick them up. It is important to prepare yourself and others for these raids.
