“ICE raids have already started in California, ahead of plans to round up thousands of immigrants across the U.S. this weekend, according to a group of lawyers.
Attorneys from the Bay Area of San Francisco have claimed the raids are underway and began in Contra Costa County this past Sunday.
They also claimed that ICE was refusing to let detainees know they can have access to legal help, reports KRON4.
On Sunday authorities will begin arresting at least 2,000 immigrant families eligible for deportation in a nationwide series of raids long threatened by President Trump.
Yesterday the group of Bay Area attorneys went to the federal ICE offices in San Francisco to demand information about the threat of raids this weekend.
Attorney Siobhan Waldron said: ‘ICE is not only targeting those without immigration status, but those with status, so everyone must educate themselves.
She explained how ICE cannot come into a house without a warrant signed by a judge and said they ‘almost never’ have this.”
