“The Legal Right to Be Somebody”: Immigration

Home raids by armed agents early in the morning or in the dead of night are the new normal for immigrant communities in our country. Families are torn apart as children lose their parents, many are left unsupervised without knowing where they were taken, or who will take care for them. These raids not only impact those who are arrested and deported, but disrupt and destabilize their families, and create panic among far greater numbers of immigrants in surrounding communities who fear they will be next.
