The United States has met some problems in the past few weeks. Many people have have been in fear because in many cities there have been raids, while others have been motivated to unite to gain their rights as humans with protests.

“The fear, the panic, it’s increasing daily,” Eva Millona, executive director of Massachusetts Immigration and refugee Advocacy Coalition, said to explain the feelings of many in the U.S.

Protest against immigration raids

There have been more than 680 immigrants arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) over the last week. This being President Donald Trump’s first, huge, operation.

Cities all over the U.S. have had immigrants arrested. This has caused an increase of many to go out and ask for legal advice. Lawyers, advocates, and community organizers are working to get the information out to every immigrant. Many are asking if working is safe or what happens to their children if they are taken in. “It’s just panic, panic,”  Gladys Vega, executive director of Chelsea Collaborative, stated.

This past Tuesday afternoon there was suppose to be a meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other Democrats, but was canceled by Tom Homan, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director, hours before.

Officials explained that the reason it was canceled was because of the attendance list growing but Michelle Lujan Grisham, Caucus Chairwoman, says it’s due political reasons and “they’re looking for cover.”
