Immigration Raids Spark Fear, Outrage

Reaction to last week’s massive immigration raids continues to grow, with criticisms coming from immigrant rights activists, immigration attorneys, and state and local officials. The federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency rounded up about 160 undocumented residents late last week in Los Angeles. Other immigration raids also took place in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and cities in Florida and North and South Carolina. Activists say the action is creating fear and divisiveness in communities and splitting families.
