Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Lawsuit Alleges ICE used Deceptive Tactics to Detain 120 Women and Children

Rate this Entry
A lawsuit has been filed by the Southern Poverty Law Center alleging ICE employed deceptive practices on more than 120 immigrant mothers an children potentially resulting in constitutional violations.

From the lawsuit:

On January 2 and 3, 2016, ICE agents conducted a multistate enforcement operation, sweeping into homes across Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas. Upon information and belief, ICE agents targeted and detained 121 people during these immigration raids, all of whom were women and children. ICE agents removed these women and children from their homes, and transferred them to an immigration detention facility in Dilley, Texas.

These raids have raised serious concerns about potential constitutional violations. Upon information and belief, in several instances, ICE agents entered homes without obtaining lawful and voluntary consent during these immigration raids. In these cases, ICE agents allegedly used deception to gain entry into the homes, stating that they were police officers looking for a criminal suspect and showing residents a photo of an African American man. In other instances, ICE agents allegedly stated that they were only taking the immigrants into custody for a short time to examine the women’s electronic ankle shackles.

Upon information and belief, the ICE agents did not have warrants to conduct these raids. The agents did not show residents copies of warrants, which are required to enter a home without valid consent, regardless of a person’s immigration status. When asked for copies of warrants or orders to enter a home,ICE agents ignored the requests, threatened residents, or ordered them to “be quiet.”
