Federal agents conduct sweeping immigration enforcement raids in at least 6 states


February 13, 2017

U.S. immigration authorities launched a series of raids, traffic stops and checkpoints in at least half a dozen states across the country on Thursday and Friday, sweeping up an unknown number of undocumented immigrants, immigration lawyers and advocates said.

The raids, which appeared to target scores of undocumented immigrants, including those without criminal records, mark the first large-scale episode of immigration enforcement inside the United States since President Donald Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.
