Federal Immigration Officials Arrested 100 People, and Angelenos Aren't Having It

A group of protesters blocks the southbound 101 Freeway entrance on Aliso Street in downtown Los Angeles Thursday Feb. 9 2017 after reports that about 100 people had been arrested and detained by federal immigration agents

"I had to come here and stand up for what I believe in", Kenia said.

Marlene Mosqueda, left, who's father was arrested by ICE agents early Friday morning, talks at a news conference with her Attorney Karla Navarrette at The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles on February 10.

Immigration advocates were up in arms after ICE agents deported an illegal immigrant woman Wednesday who had been in the us for 21 years. This follows Trump's executive order making it clear that any undocumented migrant could be a priority for deportation.

The situation highlighted fear among many immigrants about Trump's vow to deport those in the United States illegally.

In the wake of the news, advocates also resurfaced a rights flier and ICE Raids Toollkit previously published by the Immigration Defense Project, which works for legal justice for immigrants in the United States.

Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, 35, was deported Thursday after she checked in with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Phoenix a day earlier. KVUE began investigating the reports with law enforcement and Defender Tony Plohetski talked to law enforcement sources at the federal, state, and local levels and none reported any operations outside of their daily action.

Demonstrators hit the streets of Los Angeles to protest against reported raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials which allegedly led to more than 100 people being detained.

About 150 of the suspects have criminal histories, including felony convictions for serious or violent offenses, according to an ICE statement.

Immigration activists said ICE agents targeted people at the complex who already had orders of deportation, but also made so-called "collateral" arrests of other people who merely lacked proper documentation, but had committed no other crime.

It denied reports about ICE checkpoints and random sweeps, calling them "false, dangerous, and irresponsible".

Put simply, that means that if someone doesn't break the law and doesn't get taken to the Whitfield County jail, their immigration status can't be checked by local law enforcement. "ICE does not conduct sweeps or raids that target aliens indiscriminately", he said. "The arrestees included nationals from a dozen countries".

Cox did say that roughly a third of the total number of arrests made in the last week happened in SC.

The agency did not release a total number of detainees.

In a press call this evening, ICE Enforcement and Removals (ERO) L.A. Field Office Director David Marin said that there was no connection to the operation conducted in Southern California and Trump's order, issued just five days after he took the oath of office. "And they didn't even have ICE on them, titled", she said, apparently referring to department identification.

"They don't check in with us, they don't have to check in with us", Chief Manley said.

LOS ANGELES-The alarm sounded a few minutes past 3. "Clients who are here legally but afraid to leave the U.S.to go home in fear they won't get back in". Dir. of CHIRLA, said. Since then, she's had to check in regularly with immigration agents.

"They are attempting to normalize these attacks towards our community", Abud said. Or they have the option of not showing up.

"We can not understate the level of panic and terror that is running through many immigrant communities", said Walter Barrientos of Make the Road in New York City.

Meanwhile, local law enforcement scrambled to tamp down the hysteria, with some blaming the immigration-rights advocates for crying wolf and heightening fears.

According to an analysis by Reuters, a sum of $2.27 billion in annual funds for the 10 largest cities in the U.S. are under threat of removal.

Most undocumented immigrants live in Houston, New York and Los Angeles, according to new Pew Research Center estimates based on government data.

Mexicans made up 52% of all unauthorized immigrants in 2014, but their numbers have declined in recent years, the center reported.
