>> Not one more deportation.>> Reports of increasing federal raids across the US targeting undocumented immigrants striking new fear into communities that once felt safe. In Seattle, an immigrant brought to the US as a child decades ago was arrested in Denver and undocumented woman hold up in a church with her children, hoping the house of worship will protect them.
And in El Paso, a new report Wednesday of a customs and immigration enforcement arrest inside a state family court of a woman who have just received a order of protection. The county attorney saying, the woman who claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse sought a restraining order against her boyfriend.
The boyfriend may have tipped off ICE that the woman was undocumented. Speaking to the El Paso Times, the county attorney saying, our clients come to us at the lowest point in their lives. Many of them are so frightened of coming to us because of possible immigration concerns. The judge who issued the protective order telling the newspaper it's common for abusers to seek to control undocumented partners by threatening to report them.
Another judge telling the newspaper, she's worried news of the arrest is already spreading through the immigrant community in the large border city. Effectively dissuading members from reporting crimes or cooperating with law enforcement. Outrage over US President Donald Trump's crack down on immigration prompting organizers to launch a day without immigrants protest Thursday, encouraging workers to walk off their jobs in an act of protest.
