Protesters congregate outside Detroit ICE office ahead of potential weekend raids

Stop the games and just start deporting

Stop the games and just start deporting

Immigrant advocates in those cities have had several weeks to prepare.

"We'll focus on criminals as much as a we can", Trump said on Friday.

"I've seen first hand what happens to families impacted by this", Moore, said.

Mayor Libby Schaaf tipped residents off past year that immigration agents would be conducting enforcement operations, President Donald Trump called her actions a "disgrace".

Members of Trump's administration, including acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, objected to initial plans for the raids, the Times reported, arguing their sweeping nature could result in family separations.

Back in April, Durbin visited the Port of Entry in El Paso, Texas, and a nearby Border Patrol Station.

Brunner said they remind their clients about their rights when they have questions.

Any raids this weekend could also affect those who have not been ordered deported. In those deportations, law enforcement agents may detain immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even if they were not targets of the raids.

In Chicago, Walter Coleman, the pastor at Lincoln United Methodist Church, said his church and community activists were advising people not to answer the door to agents without a warrant and not to talk or sign any documents without a lawyer present.

Trump started hinting anew in recent days that more removals were coming.

Embattled Labor Secretary Alex Acosta stepping down
Acosta faced renewed scrutiny over the case after Epstein was arrested on new federal sex trafficking charges in NY last week. What's Acosta's connection to Epstein's 2008 plea deal? The Epstein case is a ideal storm of scandal and outrage.

Some advocacy groups called the upcoming immigration raid a "political stunt".

ICE hasn't commented on the raids, which would come with Trump seeking to demonstrate toughness on immigration amid a still-strong influx of migrants across the border with Mexico. Most mayors have said they have directed their local police departments not to cooperate with Ice. "We don't want to take anything for granted".

"We know our neighbors are anxious".

New York Attorney General Letitia James is promising to protect those involved in the raids.

"We did have that initial conversation and there may be some possibilities", she said.

He noted the training sessions are a key way to protect undocumented New Jersey families. If arrested, everyone is entitled to remain silent and to access a government-appointed attorney.

Chaudry admitted that the booklet wouldn't prevent people from being taken into ICE custody if they are apprehended, but that it "at least gives them information on what they have to share, what they don't have to share, how they should behave".

The agents have also noted that the operation might have limited success because word has already spread among immigrant communities about how to avoid arrest - namely, by refusing to open the door when an agent approaches one's home.

There are an estimated 475,000 undocumented immigrants in New Jersey.

While the Trump administration wants people to begin leaving the country on their own accord, a outcome of such tactics is that people "put themselves in more peril by not taking themselves to health clinics, not going to school, not going to work, not telling police about crimes they know about, and be more and more invisible in ways that can have deleterious effects in the community", she said.
