New immigration raids planned nationwide
U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials have been conducting immigration raids in various cities across the country. These raids have targeted mothers and children from Central American countries who have been directed to leave the United States, but have not yet done so.
The raids have already started taking place, and have resulted in the detention of over 100 immigrants here in the U.S. illegally. Officials are targeting these groups because in 2015 to 2016, there was a significant uptick in the number of people detected trying to enter the country unlawfully. It is hoped that the raids will help deter people from attempting to enter the U.S.
Critics feel that the raids are not helpful, because they are directed toward people who are fleeing countries where widespread violence is taking place. By enforcing the deportation decisions, the immigrants are being sent back to very unstable nations.
As the Obama administration considers its next move, it is important to note that immigration remains a very charged issue in this election season. Candidates from both parties will be expected to clarify their positions as the election gets closer. The results of the contest could have major implications on legal and illegal immigration. You need to be sure that you are prepared for whatever may happen in your case.
