🚨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
