Dear Democratic Colleague,

On Sunday, it was a sign to us that the Catholic Gospel reading was that of the Good Samaritan, where Jesus teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and treat them with mercy.
Trump’s ICE raids this weekend are the opposite of mercy.  We have been monitoring these raids closely insisting that #FamiliesBelongTogether and that everyone #KnowYourRights.

🚨THREAD: Know Your Rights!

DHS has confirmed #ICEraids starting Sunday July 14th, and at least 10 cities will be impacted, Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, LA, Miami, New Orleans, NY, and San Francisco. 1/8
We believe the raids will be focusing on people with prior orders of deportation who entered after 2014. This means can mean folks who never had notice of court in the first place, those seeking counsel to understand their case 2/8
and those who were subject to expedited removal at the border by CBP agents who did not inform them of their rights. Additionally, raids may also target not only those with old deportation orders, but those who are present at the time of a raid and their family members. 3/8

“Nationwide raids to arrest thousands of members of undocumented families have been scheduled to begin Sunday...”

As the government continues to separate families at the border, this plan to deport thousands of migrants will devastate even more families.

We cannot stand by while this occurs. The moment to stand up is now.

And for those who need it, here is a helpful guide from the @ACLU.

We are sent to Congress to lead, to legislate and to carry the stories and struggles of those we serve. More on why, with a heavy heart but clear eyes, I voted no last night → | #MA7 #CloseTheCamps
We should not be criminalizing and vilifying migrant families, especially children and our most vulnerable. #DefundHate #CloseTheCamps…

Immigrants: Donald Trump is cruelly targeting families. But it's important to know we're a country of laws & YOU HAVE RIGHTS!

Below, I'll detail some of them. Please share so our neighbors and friends know how to protect themselves. 1/
You do not have to say anything! You cannot be forced to answer questions. In fact, you have the legal right to refuse to speak to immigration officers at all. 2/
You have the right to a lawyer before you do anything. Immigration officers may pressure you to sign a document waiving your rights & protections. You should not sign anything without the lawyer you're entitled to there to counsel you. 3/

DHS says there had been ZERO child deaths in U.S. custody in 8 years before Sept 2018.

Now 7 kids have died due to President* Trump’s policies. 💔

DHS admits “these conditions are not acceptable.”

PLEASE remember these children:

DHS plans to house THOUSANDS of babies in a new tent city. They just bought:

🍄 20,000 baby bottles
🍄 3,000 boxes of baby wipes
🍄 2,224,000 diapers
🍄 144,000 pairs of shower shoes (36,000 extra-smalls)

3 Facts About #TrumpConcentrationCamps:

🍄 President* Trump is stealing military budget to fund them

🍄 Neither Congress nor our courts can shut them down

Walmart insists you show a receipt. They can’t do that. 1) you didn’t sign a membership agreement (aka Costco) and 2) once you buy a product, they’re searching your property. You have the right to refuse. @Walmart any comments on how your worker treated my mother?
2) She behaves differently pre-recording. My mother had to go into Walmart for a can of paint (we avoid at all costs) and she insinuated my mother was stealing when she said “no” to the receipt check. She threatened to call a manager.
(3) the manager arrived. Allowed her to belittle the customer and speak in a patronizing tone. She then doesn’t like hearing the word “sh*t”? Please 🙄 #walmart #KnowYourRights #Shopping #CustomerService

DOES ICE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DETAIN OR ARREST US CITIZENS BASED ON IMMIGRATION STATUS? NO. The immigration law & its rules do not apply to US citizens. ICE agents have deportation authority over non-citizens only”
-ICE agents violate the 4th and 5th Amendment of the Constitution if they question, detain or arrest U.S. citizen based on the citizen’s race.

-Tell ICE that you are a U.S. citizen and ICE does not have the authority to detain or arrest you.
