ICE raids are not simply about rounding up undocumented workers. These raids have devasting effects on the social and economic fabric of communities. The raids do nothing to address the real problems of U.S. immigration policy–faciliating the flow of immigrants in the age of globalization and the interrelationships between countries–especially those that border each other.
