Trump Administration to Begin Immigration Raids Sunday

Stephen Antwine

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) plans to begin raids on Sunday to target recently arrived migrant families who have already been issued final orders of removal. The Trump Administration has stated that the operation will focus on those with orders of deportation, but the operations may detain others on the scene who were not the initial targets of the raids. 

The raids are expected to focus on ten major U.S. cities, including Baltimore, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans and San Francisco.  Although Philadelphia was not listed specifically, local immigration advocates believe that immigrants here could be affected by the raids.

The Trump Administration believes that announcing the raids will deter further migration from Central America and that targeted enforcement will send a strong message to individuals who remain in the United States without documents. 

The announcement has spread fear among migrant communities throughout the United States.  Please remember that if stopped during a raid, you have the right to remain silent, you have the right to speak with an attorney, and you have the right to refuse a search of your home, vehicle or belongings.

Should you be approached by ICE officer or detained, please contact Green & Spiegel for assistance at (215) 395-8959 or (484) 288-9755.  Green & Spiegel is a full-service immigration law firm which can provide deportation defense options for you, family or friends.

La administración de Trump comenzará las redadas de inmigración el domingo

Por: Stephen Antwine, Esq.

El Servicio de Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE) planea comenzar redadas el domingo para atacar a las familias migrantes recién llegadas que ya han recibido órdenes definitivas de expulsión. La Administración de Trump ha declarado que la operación se enfocará en aquellos con órdenes de deportación, pero las operaciones pueden detener a otros en la escena que no fueron los objetivos iniciales de las redadas.

Se espera que las redadas se centren en diez ciudades principales de los Estados Unidos, incluidas Baltimore, Nueva York, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Ángeles, Miami, Nueva Orleans y San Francisco. Aunque Filadelfia no estaba incluida específicamente, los defensores locales de la inmigración creen que los inmigrantes aquí podrían verse afectados por las redadas.

La Administración de Trump cree que el anuncio de las redadas desalentará la migración de Centroamérica y que el cumplimiento dirigido enviará un mensaje firme a las personas que permanecen en los Estados Unidos sin documentos.

El anuncio ha extendido el temor entre las comunidades migrantes en todo Estados Unidos. Recuerde que si lo detienen durante una redada, tiene derecho a permanecer en silencio, tiene derecho a hablar con un abogado y tiene derecho a rechazar un registro de su casa, vehículo o pertenencias.

Si un oficial de ICE lo contactara o lo detuviera, comuníquese con Green & Spiegel para obtener ayuda al (215) 395-8959 o al (484) 288-9755. Green & Spiegel es una firma de abogados de inmigración de servicio completo que puede brindar opciones de defensa contra deportación para usted, su familia o sus amigos.
