2/ First, I will stress again that ICE does not conduct general #ICERaids. They know their targets, and they surveil and analyze them before arrest.

Todays raids were true "raids," far more so than the planned (but ultimately unexecuted) plan to go after families w/final orders
3/ These kinds of "shock and awe" mass workplace raids have almost always been industrial plants, usually food processing. They are carefully planned, in this case for nearly a year.

And yet they somehow still never know what to do with the kids.
