Event

Immigration authorities are set to conduct raids starting on Sunday, July 14, in order to detain and round up an estimated 2 000 people. The raids will specifically target undocumented families who have been issued final removal orders in the past. Though authorities stated they are targeting undocumented immigrants with criminal histories, they did say that any undocumented people found would also be subject to arrest.

Increased police activity in cities across the nation should be expected over the next several days.

Context

President Donald Trump initially announced that the raids would take place in June. After information was leaked, they were rescheduled for July. The raids are a part of Trump's tough policies on illegal immigration.

Advice

Individuals in the US are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
