Auschwitz Survivor Confronts ICE Director: 'History Is Not On Your Side'

Two Brazos Valley sheriffs have decided not to participate in a program with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that would have given deputies the authority to act as federal immigration agents.

Still, he warned that ICE meant to "enforce the laws that are on the books".

State Rep. Michelle DuBois wrote on her Facebook page that contacts in the "Latin community" were abuzz over a feared raid yesterday and today by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

DuBois later said her Facebook was flooded with nasty messages, intimidating comments and threats from Facebook users across the country. Most often, these are immigrants who were charged with or convicted of minor crimes.

"It really caused huge anxiety, families were torn apart, children were left in the custody of the state", she said.

A MA lawmaker is defending a Facebook post she made alerting immigrants to rumored ICE raids in Brockton. ICE knocks on a door and you open it to ask, 'Can I help you?' and ICE is standing there with their guns.

"For operational security reasons, ICE does not release information regarding future operations", Neudauer said.

Brockton resident, Jerry Terminiello was upset by what DuBois had done and he attended this meeting in hopes of getting some answers from her over this ICE raiding rumor.

ICE released few other details, and Chicago police said its officers were not at the scene at the time.

According to Torres' daughter, the ICE agents were in pursuit of her brother, whom she stated is a US citizen. During Tuesday afternoon's press conference, Ruth Lopez-McCarthy, an attorney with the National Immigrant Justice Center, said her organization was providing legal consultations at Heartland Human Care Services, 5715 W. Belmont, for people concerned about their immigration status. In addition to being audience members who questioned Jones and Homan, Steinberg and de Leon and several Sacramento City Council members held a vigil and news conference just prior to the start of the forum. Only five members of his extended family of about 200 survived the war. "This guns-blazing ICE raid deepens my resolve to organize my community so we can keep each other safe from the threat posed by ICE". "If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and hide criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials", Hodgson said.

In February, a county court judge, Monica Herranz, in OR went so far as to help an undocumented immigrant who pled guilty to a drunken driving charge elude ICE by helping him get away from agents through a door for employees. This is another bad move that could place communities in a bind where they have to do something that violates people's rights.
