Skip to comments.As Raids Failed to Materialize, Many Immigrants Still Felt Fearful
Posted on 07/15/2019 8:06:33 AM PDT by RightGeek
The city braced for deportation raids this weekend that didnt come to pass, but legal groups and city officials fanned out across the five boroughs to assuage fears and inform immigrants of their rights.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were planning to arrest families who recently arrived, missed their court dates, and were ordered deported. But fear has spread among many immigrants. At Saint Joan of Arc Church on Stratford Avenue in the Bronx, around 60 people filed into the basement for know-your-rights workshops. Alejandra, who didnt want to provide her last name, said she came to the U.S. 12 years ago from Mexico and doesnt have legal status. She said she feels afraid.
We stay at home, she said in Spanish. We cant go out.
She said she rarely leaves her house now, because she worries what would happen to her two U.S. citizen daughters if she got deported. Hilario Galicia Montes, a volunteer at the church, said he wasnt afraid, after spending 21 years in the country and regularly paying taxes. But he said many of his friends are scared.
They dont want to go out, he said. They dont want to go to work.

Criminals are afraid of getting caught. Film at 11.
Cities wasting resources ,how long can they keep it up ,LOL
Take them with you? duh
If you are in the country legally, you have nothing to fear.
If are in the country illegally, you aren’t an immigrant.
What Trump needs to do is make clear that enforcement will focus on areas that are not sanctuary cities. Encourage the migrants to migrate to the sanctuary cities. As long as they stay there they wont be bothered ..: at least for the time being. And pull ICE out of those cities. Dump the migrants in those cities but dont disclose thats what youre doing.
Uh, no. Home is a few hundred miles south across the border.
Funny how these folks who are supposed to be living in the shadows and afraid to go outside always seem to end up in headlines.
Fine! So, to take my relatives' position - yes, the are Americans...but not citizens of the USA! Go Home!!!!
“She said she rarely leaves her house now, because she worries what would happen to her two U.S. citizen daughters if she got deported.”
Don’t worry, we’ll send them with you because DemocRat say it would be cruel to split families up.
Guess what, Alejandra!
They are hiring in Mexico and you can take your daughters with you.
Seriously, the Trump economy has not only produced better paying blue collar jobs in America but south of the border as well.
The company for whom I work for has openings in all three plants in Mexico-- Tijuana, Ciudad Juarez and Monterrey. There are even sign-on bonuses for the right skillsets.
Nothing is being done on immigration legal or illegal except to let more Indians in to further colonize us. The DACA parasites were supposed to go back but NOPE, didn’t happen. Jared Kushner is coming up with an immigration package to ensure that we never have another Republican president (like that’s done us any good) and white people never have a voice in anything.
So it was a triple instead of a home run. Oh well.
Trump wins again. He made democrats come out, openly disobeying the laws of the USA, and showing the world how much they hate this country.
dems have shown illegals how to break the law. dems are now in full ownership of the problems caused by illegal immigration.
Trump, the genius!
We have to ramp up enforcement ten fold.
Cut off benefits.
Make it so difficult to be an illegal alien that they go home.
If you see people speaking Spanish, ask if they have a green card, if they say no, tell them ICE is looking for them.
Assuming there is a larger strategy here, putting the frighteners on the illegals may redound to Trump’s benefit in keeping them from voting even with the Dems attempting to stampede them to the polls.
A lot of them will probably decide to head home rather than continually going on and off of Red Alert.
This Trump is a friggin’ genius.
America will never return millions of illegals since the communists Democrats still have huge power to keep the illegal voters. Democrats have nearly destroyed America and may never find a solid law and order Country again. This is like foreign Countries have been destroyed. They know that President Trump will get the second term but the communists will return four years after.
They are also Mexican citizens, so, no problem.
Mexico extends citizenship to the children of Mexican nationals born anywhere in the world.
Even George P. Bush.
Trump PSYOPS creating havoc inside their OODA Loop.
MAGA Red Meat for 2020 produced by the very people want Trump gone.
