Learn about raids | Defend your community | Train community members 


For years, IDP has been tracking, requesting information and training community members on immigration (ICE*) raids and arrests. To challenge the practice of ICE raids, communities must understand ICE tactics, help those at risk of deportation prepare, and strategize about ways to fight back through organizing and/or in the courts.

* ICE, or Immigration and Customs Enforcement, is the federal agency responsible for arresting, detaining and deporting immigrants.
