Federal agents conduct sweeping immigration enforcement raids in at least 6 states

"U.S. immigration authorities launched a series of raids, traffic stops and checkpoints in at least half a dozen states across the country on Thursday and Friday, sweeping up an unknown number of undocumented immigrants, immigration lawyers and advocates said.

The raids, which appeared to target scores of undocumented immigrants, including those without criminal records, mark the first largescale episode of immigration enforcement inside the United States since President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

It also appeared to signal a departure from the Obama administration’s prioritized immigration enforcement against criminals. Trump has pledged to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records."

3. And they are PRAYING for an ISIS Attack on our soil, the bloodier the better

They will then implement martial law, protesters will be arrested on site or beaten or both.

It is going to get ugly, fascists, nazis are in charge.

4. Obama signed an EO that choose violent crimes and frequent criminals over others, such as

using a false SSN to get employment, for deportation. Trump is targetting anyone convicted of a crime no matter how minor. It is destroying families and is inhumane and will effect many tens of thousands of hard working peaceful people.

This EO also needs to be challenged.

5. From the link...

"We cannot 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.

ICE agents had raided homes, and were “not just detaining individuals they are looking for ... but in fact, taking anyone else in the community, or in these homes who does not have immigration status at the moment, or who is not able to prove citizenship,” Barrientos said.

In some cities, activists said that ICE had set up roadside or neighborhood checkpoints, where ICE agents, often in unmarked cars, appeared to be asking people at random for proof of citizenship or identification."

7. That would seem illegal to set up roadblocks and ask for proof of citizenship. When did they get

that authority? Is that how ICE is interpreting the EO because that needs to go to court as well.

This is the tip of the spear towards a police state and ethnic cleansing at the end of it all.
