President Trump has warned for months that if the DemocRats would not work with him, he’d start massive ICE Raids to deal with illegal immigrants residing in our country.
The DemocRats ignored his warning.
And while the raids were rumored to begin on Sunday, reports are coming out now that they’ve already begun!
Take a look:
Here's what the Bay Area's KRON is reporting:
While the focus is on upcoming weekend ICE raids, immigration attorneys in the Bay Area say those raids have already begun.
A group of Bay Area immigration attorneys entered federal ICE offices in San Francisco during the noon hour Thursday to demand information about the threat of immigration raids this weekend.
“We want to know what their plans are, who they are targeting and where individuals will be process so they can have access to attorneys,” said immigration attorney Siobhan Waldron.
Attorneys say these raids are already underway in the Bay Area, beginning in Contra Costa County this past Sunday.
They say ICE continues to refuse to let detainees know they have access to the free legal help these attorneys provide unless they know the detainees name.
“There is a history of prohibiting attorney access here in San Francisco and at a new facility in stockton,” Waldron said.
Waldron with Centro Legal de la Raza says ICE is not only targeting those without immigration status, but those with status, so everyone must must educate themselves before ICE shows up at their doorstep
“Do not open the door, ICE cannot enter your house without a warrant signed by a judge they almost never have a warrant signed by a judge, they have ones signed by ICE agents and those do not authorize entry into a house,” she said. “So simply do not answer the door.”
Many on Twitter are not showing any sympathy:
CNN reported the following:
Weeks ago, as President Donald Trump warned that ICE agents were preparing raids across the country, a 41-year-old housekeeper and babysitter in Miami headed to the grocery store with her daughter.
They knew they'd be staying inside and needed to stock up on supplies.
"I felt that day like it was a hurricane coming," the undocumented immigrant from Nicaragua told CNN.
Since then, the raids Trump threatened haven't happened. But for millions of undocumented immigrants living across the United States, the storm is still brewing.
With a new threat of immigration raids on Sunday, immigrant rights advocates and undocumented immigrants told CNN that fear in their communities is growing.
And undocumented immigrants are bracing themselves.
They're calling hotlines, afraid to go outside and unsure of where to turn. Some are staying home from work. Others are posting signs by doors inside their homes telling them what to do if ICE agents show up.
