You may have heard the rumor of ICE raids in Geneva this weekend. The Workers’ Center of CNY (a key member org of our coalition) and others spent considerable time investigating the rumor over the weekend. Their conclusion is that it is likely only a rumor.
The Workers’ Center requests that you read and have handy the information below about how to proceed when you hear or see any information about raids in the future:
- United We Dream Migra Watch Hotline at 1-844-363-1423 and/or
- Immigrant Defense Project at 212.725.6422.
- You can and should also contact a local immigration advocacy organization (the Workers’ Center of CNY at 315-218-5708 in our case)
If you know the identity of any of the 40 people who were detained in this week’s enforcement operation, please connect them/their family to a local immigration organization who can provide support. If you do not know who to connect them with please contact the NYIC and we will do our best to refer them to a member agency in the area.
