Deportations are happening all over the country – even New York City
A leaked memo from U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement claims that 40 “foreign nationals” from New York City were arrested this week during an ICE operation.
The memo, dated Saturday, Feb. 11, claims that “the vast majority (nearly 95%) of those arrested had criminal convictions.”
Wow! A President that keeps every single campaign promise!
Of course radical left-wing groups are outraged. The New York Immigration Coalition released a statement condemning the action:
“We are horrified and angered by the ICE raids and activity in the greater New York area that has led to the arrest and detainment of 40 people. Shame on ICE for putting New York’s immigrant communities – four million strong – in a state of panic. These arrests do nothing but tear families apart, hobble our economies, and corrode the bonds of trust that tie our communities together – all under the false pretense of “public safety.”
“These are dark times for immigrants in our New York, and in America. On behalf of our 175 member agencies across the state, the New York Immigration Coalition demands a complete halt to these irresponsible enforcement operations that are having a chilling effect among New York’s diverse communities.
“The NYIC is committed to ensuring that our communities have the most accurate information possible to best protect themselves. We urge everyone to educate themselves as to their rights when interrogated by ICE and to consult with a lawyer if they have any questions. Those with prior deportation orders or prior criminal histories are particularly vulnerable, and should get educated as soon as possible.
“We will not stand down. Our New York is inclusive, our allies are large in number, and we will respond by using everything in our power to fight back against deportations, walls, and bans. We call on our allies, our elected officials and our partners to stand with us against these raids and arrests targeting our communities.”
Look out for more news of deportations in every state. President Donald Trump is not playing around with our nation’s security.
