On Valentine’s night, a disturbing report emerged from Seattle, Washington, where immigration authorities arrested and detained Daniel Ramirez Medina, a 23-year-old DACA recipient.
The DACA program, which temporarily shields beneficiaries from deportation, should have kept Daniel safe from Trump’s Deportation Force.
Instead, the Trump Administration chose to disregard Daniel’s DACA status and arrested him anyway – sending a clear signal that all undocumented immigrants are clear targets for deportation.
If we want to protect immigrant families from Trump’s Deportation Force, then we must become informed on how to fight back against their mass deportation tactics.
680 arrested the last 5 days!
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in the Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio, and New York City areas arrested more than 680 individuals over the course of five days. These individuals, mostly men, were arrested at their place of work, private residences, or other public places they may have been when they were tracked down by ICE fugitive teams.
