ICE MISTAKENLY RAIDS HOME OF US CITIZEN

Rate this Entry

And this is the SECOND time this has happened. Peggy - I hope you get some serious compensation. Unfortunately, I doubt you'll even get an apology. 

Peggy Delarosa-Delgado, a United States citizen, Long Island homeowner and
mother of three, was fast asleep when someone banged at the door before 6 a.m.
last Thursday.






 



Her son Christopher, 17, a high school senior, opened the door, and more than
a dozen federal immigration agents and one Suffolk County police officer pushed past him, he said later.



Only after the agents had herded her other children into the living room,
frightened her aunt and uncle, and drawn a gun on a family friend staying in the
basement, Ms. Delarosa-Delgado said, did she awake to discover that her house in
Huntington Station had been the mistaken target of a raid by Immigration and
Customs Enforcement.



It was not the first time. In the summer of 2006, she said, agents waving the
same photo of a deportable immigrant named Miguel had stormed into her house
before dawn. No Miguel has ever lived there, she said -- at least not since she
bought the place in 2003.

    Good article. Welcome to Orwellian state.

    Greg, could you comment on this 800,000 EB application nonsense? There is absolutely no data to support this, and all of the offial USCIS statistics is just nowhere near anything of that sort. I understand there could be delays in receipting, but not to the tune of 700K (most people got their receipts already, although majority in September).

    Legal, unfortunately it seems that the 800K is true; it's been quoted from some AILA source. This is the number of total applications; the primary applicants were about 320,000 I think. Greg we would really appreciate your comments on this. Also, is there any news on how many were from what countries and categories?

    Does this mean some of us would be waiting 20 plus years for our GC?

    Ahhh morning militarism..

    I, for one, think the Stasi-wannabes *should* be busting down American citizen's doors too, if only to make people think about what this means for the them. (First they came for.....)

    Listen, kid, we're all in it together.

    These guys are the new Gestapo I hope this lady sues them for Trespassing, breaking and entering and any Police brutality that may have occurred.

    Greg, so what is the best course of action if ICE knocks on my door at 5:30am (assuming for simplicity there is no problems with my immigration status)? Can they force their way inside the house without a search warrant? I mean I do not mind talking to them at mutually convinient time, not at 5:30am with a busy day ahead of me and kids running around. I thought that without a search warrant they cannot legally enter..
