DOJ Reviewing Oakland Mayor's Warning About Impending ICE Raid

ICE Director Condemns Oakland Mayor's “Reckless” Warning About Impending Raids

Demonstrators spanned the area's broad spectrum of racial and ethnic groups.

Organizers also said ICE agents used fear tactics during the arrests and prevented would-be attorneys from accessing their clients.

Last month, ICE arrested more than 200 people last month in the Los Angeles area. ICE did not provide a county by county breakdown of the arrests. Juarez said his son was never read his rights, even in the processing center.

Another risk was that the people she attempted to protect might not be deserving of protection. "No one deserves to be separated from their families; no one deserves to be intimidated".

On Feb. 28, 2018, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officers arrested nine people in in Beckley, WV, unlawfully present in the United States.

Organizer Erica Leyva said parents should have guardian contact information on hand and their children's documentation in a folder. She urged those who might be affected to seek information on their rights, from immigrant rights organizations like Centro Legal de la Raza.

As ICE continues to ramp up its operations in Northern California illegal alien protesters are ramping up staged displays of civil disobedience as well.

Since Sunday, 232 individuals who violated federal immigration laws were arrested in the San Francisco Bay Area, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said in a news release Thursday. Together we must resist this blatant racism.

"It's ridiculous to have all these families broken apart", said Maribel Rodriguez, a 33-year-old San Francisco resident who listened to the speeches outside the ICE building on Sansome Street. "Rather than focus on people who are risky criminals, we hear ICE may be terrorizing communities, including family members who are citizens".
