Get Ready for ICE Raids

Official Daily Action for Wednesday July 10, 2019

Sunday, on Face the Nation, Ken Cuccinelli, the new Acting Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said that immigration authorities are ready to identify, detain, and deport 1 MILLION undocumented immigrants. On Monday, President Trump tweeted a similar threat.

NEVER AGAIN IS NOW.

It is time to stand with our immigrant neighbors, and protect them from being taken from our communities.

The Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network (WAISN) has analyzed the threat and expects targeted raids at workplaces, apartment buildings, and courthouses.

WAISN is offering guides landlords and employers, and training for anyone who wants to volunteer to help protect immigrants.
