ICE Plans Massive Raids on Immigrant Communities Starting Mid-September

“We encourage community members at risk to review their safety plans and tips for how they can defend their rights if they encounter ICE,” said Mary Meg McCarthy, executive director, National Immigrant Justice Center. “All people have the right to remain silent. If stopped or arrested, you do not have to answer an immigration agent’s questions. If an immigration agent knocks on your door and does not have a warrant, do not open the door.”

ICE Memorandum on NYC Weekend Operations

New York Immigration Coalition posts leaked ICE Memorandum:

“Approximately 40 foreign nationals were arrested this week in the five boroughs of New York City and the surrounding areas during a targeted enforcement operation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) aimed at immigration fugitives, illegal entrants and at-large criminal aliens.”

NYIC Executive Director Steve Choi issued a statement:

“We are horrified and angered by the ICE raids and activity in the greater New York area that has led to the arrest and detainment of 40 people. Shame on ICE for putting New York’s immigrant communities – four million strong – in a state of panic. These arrests do nothing but tear families apart, hobble our economies, and corrode the bonds of trust that tie our communities together – all under the false pretense of “public safety.”
