Attorney General James Vows to Fight to Protect Immigrants From President Trump’s ICE Raids

NEW YORK - Attorney General Letitia James today released the following statement after news that President Trump would order Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to commence raids on migrant families this weekend:

“The Trump Administration’s insistence on using migrant families as a political bargaining chip with Congressional leaders is as deplorable as it is unAmerican. As New York’s chief law enforcement officer, I will do everything in my power to ensure these families’ rights are protected. I will stand up against any threatened incursions on our state’s civil rights because, in America, we value our immigrants.”

If an undocumented immigrant wants to check whether a removal order has been issued against them, they can call the Immigration Court Information System’s automated number at 1-800-898-7180.
