Judge Nap: Trump Focused on Going After 'Harmful' Undocumented Immigrants

A variety of communities, from the Irish to Latinos, worry that the roundups mark the beginning of what President Donald Trump promised in his campaign for the presidency: to deport the country's estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants.

Many immigrants, regardless of legal status, continue to remain on high alert following detailed reports of arrests in recent days. According to the agents who questioned Mr. Ramirez, ICE meant to detain and deport him "because he was not born in this country".

"We live in a community that has a lot of people that are impacted by deportations and immigration and personally my nephew has been detained", said Holiday.

Millona discourages people from going to notaries public, but instead suggests seeking help from qualified immigration lawyers.

But San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro, one of the few Hispanic Democrats allowed into a Thursday meeting with acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan, knows one thing for certain: almost every undocumented immigrant is at risk.

The attorney general's office has provided several ways to report potential fraud - Attorney General's Immigration Services Fraud Unit Hotline at (866) 390-2992 or email Civil.Rights@ag.NY.gov - and states that it will never inquire about the immigration status of those who contact the office. He also wrote that ICE agents can not ask for money.

Bitter condemnation from Queens' elected officials followed the nationwide raids.

"They are prioritizing nearly every undocumented immigrant for deportation, and that is why there is so much fear in the communities", Morales said.

"A federal policy, especially a legislative policy, will certainly supersede anything the city or state can do", state Sen.

"The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn't do something themselves ... would merit my speaking out", Obama said last month.

While President Donald Trump has issued a draconian anti-immigrant executive order that appears to have set in motion a sharp increase in ICE raids nationwide, the arrest of Daniel Ramirez Medina in Seattle last week marks the first detention of an immigrant allowed to live and work legally in the US under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program since Trump took office. The Mexican Consulate confirms one man was arrested at a trailer park in Las Cruces Wednesday morning.

Despite the alarmed rhetoric about the raids, they are not unprecedented for the New York City metropolitan area.

The bilingual ceremony was organized after the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) arrested more than 680 immigrants in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and NY in the past week. Together more than 680 people were arrested by ICE according to a statement from the agency. The Department of Homeland Security includes ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Border Patrol and others.

The Homeland Security secretary called the focus of the recent raids, which resulted in the arrests of almost 700 undocumented immigrants, "consistent with the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE's Fugitive Operations teams on a daily basis".

Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights) and Desis Rising Up and Moving Executive Director Fahd Ahmed, an advocate for unauthorized immigrants, did not immediately return requests for comment.
