  • Immigrant communities across the country and their allies are preparing for nationwide raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement planned to begin Sunday that will target undocumented members of immigrant families in at least nine major cities. The cities where raids will take place are said to be Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco. New Orleans had been on the list, but the city announced this weekend that ICE was temporarily postponing the raids due to Tropical Storm Barry. We speak with a roundtable of immigrants’ rights activists: Adelina Nicholls, the executive director of Georgia Latino Alliance of Human Rights in Atlanta; Shannon Camacho, the Los Angeles County Raids Rapid Response Network coordinator for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights; and Natalia Aristizabal, co-director of organizing at Make the Road New York. Camacho says, “We tell our community members that no matter what ICE does, don’t open the door.”#DemocracyNowDemocracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

    We have doors and we have fences. If people come to the door, there are rights. If people jump the fence. Thats tresspassing. The only right extended to them is to remain silent. A Veteran Conservative Patriots opinion

    Don't forget that the U.S. is a Constutional Republic, not a direct democracy.

    Seeing Trump's partner Pelosi read these stilted lines is as disgusting as hearing Trump defend her against valid criticism. She openly tries to silence opposition, just like her twin, Trump. They work for the same people. No Democrats, no Republicans, just paid flunkies of the kleptocracy.

    ICE coerces you to sign anything they want, and they will force open the door and claim that they where let it, that's just how it is

    TrumpoF: "I wouldn't call them raids, we are removing people... People that came here ilegally, all those people... that came here ilegally, we are removing them legally. We are removing them from our country, and we are bringing them back to their country".
