Rally Planned Against Raids of Illegal Immigrants

CBS Chicago, April 20, 2006

Protesters are gathering to rally against a new round of raids on undocumented immigrants.

Numerous raids have left Chicago families without their loved ones, and this morning the government is talking about its new policy.


But illegal immigrant advocates are calling this action and crackdown immoral and they are outraged. They are planning a protest outside the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters and another protest is planned this afternoon.

They are asking immigration officials to halt action until Congress comes up with its new laws because it might allow some immigrants to remain in the U.S.

However, ICE leaders say that they have tripled their enforcements over the last year. They say they are going to work harder along the borders to stop people coming from coming in and target those who make it across the border and think that they are home free.
