With Trump planning a majorwave of ICE raidstargeting Northern California in the coming weeks, especially targeting sanctuary cities, organized community responses are essential to beating back these attacks. The goal, as always with immigration enforcement, is to strike fear in immigrant communities, reinforce their precarious status as workers and feed Trump’s base that supports his white nationalist agenda.
On Wednesday, August 16, at about 7am, a convoy of unmarked federal vehicles rolled up in West Oakland and over two dozen armed Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents stormed a Latina home, supposedly in service of a warrant for the “human trafficking of juveniles.”

USA: The Food Chain Workers Alliance in conjunction with the Service Employees International Union United Service Workers West have announced plans for a day of no work, school, or shopping on May 1st, International Workers Day.
The Trump administration has made it a corner-stone of its fascistic platform to harasses, deport, and incarcerate immigrants at an unprecedented rate. DHS and ICE have been raiding homes and workplaces at an increasing pace. One such workplace in NYC is under attack. However, rather than accept their fate and allow their friends and families to be torn apart by these policies, these people have chosen to fight back.
Today there were massive walkouts and demonstrations against ICE raids across the US, with many shops closed and empty classes in schools. Immigrant communities across the country are on edge after federal immigration agents arrested over 600 people in the past week in the largest raids since Donald Trump became president. Raids were reported in at least 11 states, including California, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Wisconsin. On February 13th, ICE and Local Police smashed a door and windows in Santa Cruz, California. The Immigrant Defense Project published an ICE raids toolkit.
