IMPORTANT INFO FOR WHAT’S CURRENTLY HAPPENING IN TRUMP’S AMERICA: a lot of unwarranted raids are happening across the U.S right now. The latest states that have been targeted by this massive sweep is California, Arizona, Texas, and now Georgia. Over 100 people have been detained, most likely without a warrant. And before someone says “they’re just keeping the criminals out!1!”, lawyers who were able to consult some of the people detained did not have a criminal record. There have also been reports of officers trailing kids walking home from school to lead to their parents.  These officers DO NOT. HAVE. THE RIGHT. TO DETAIN PEOPLE. WITHOUT. A WARRANT.  


Here’s some more info on what’s happening in Georgia 

I told you the Muslims were the first step. They’re coming after Latinos with no criminal records in their own homes now. Three minutes from my house they detained over 100 people yesterday and literally dragged them out of their houses. They are pulling drivers over on the streets asking for papers. They are following school buses home and arresting parents when they meet the children at the stops. They’re not releasing the names of anyone they have apprehended. They’re not answering any questions from journalists/CHIRLA/the public or giving reasons as to why they’re detaining people without access to immigration attorneys. ICE has gone rogue and it seems to be in retaliation for the 9th circuit ruling against the Muslim Ban. It was clear that the Justice Department was losing during arguments on Tuesday and about 24 hours later random raids all across the country started happening? Not a coincidence.

Meanwhile on Twitter, Republicans are challenging each other to see who can report more “illegal looking people” to the ICE tip line. There are accounts proudly boasting their report tallies and encouraging more to follow suit. Others are saying they reported their neighbors or friends of friends. Any resemblance to Nazi Germany is not unintentional. Be safe out there. We’ve waded into very dangerous territory.

I don’t have a lot of followers, but any of you who can translate this in other languages, especially Arabic and French, please add to this post!

Que faire si des agents du Bureau des Douanes et de l’Immigration (Immigration and Customs Enforcement – ICE) se présentent à votre porte

1 – N’ouvrez pas la porte; les agents du BDI (ICE) n’ont pas le droit d’entrer sans un mandat signé par un juge. S’ils déclarent avoir un mandat signé, dites-leur de le glisser sous la porte avant de l’ouvrir.

2 – Gardez le silence; le BDI peut utiliser tout ce que vous dites contre vous dans le cas juridique de votre immigration, alors annoncez que vous plaidez le silence sous le Cinquième Amendement.

3 – Ne signez rien; ne signez rien de ce que le BDI vous donne sans avoir parlé à un avocat ou un autre représentant pertinent. 

4 – Signalez la descente; prenez des photos, des notes, des vidéos du nombre d’agents, de leur numéro de badge et de ce qui s’est produit avec exactitude. Le numéro à rejoindre est le 1-844-343-1623, numéro de la ligne téléphonique de l’organisation “United We Dream” ou encore “Ensemble, Nous Rêvons”

5 – Battez-vous! Engagez un avocat digne de confiance et explorez toutes les options pour lesquelles vous battre dans votre cas. Si vous êtes détenus, vous pourrie être apte à obtenir une caution – ne perdez pas espoir!
