I.C.E Raids set to begin in the new year on Cambodian Community.

Starting 1/7/19, another round of ICE raids on Cambodians will begin. We’re expecting close to 100 arrests over a two week period across the country. Here’s information on how to prepare: https://www.khaagwa.org/

1) If you have a check-in coming up in the next two weeks, call or text us at (415) 952-0413. Leave a message and let us know the date of your check-in. We’ll get in touch. Request your records TODAY: http://searaids.org/request-your-file

2) If you’re going to a check-in, bring someone with you. Give them your keys, wallet, and phone before you go in. Write down or memorize important phone numbers. If you don’t come out, have them call us right away. (415) 952-0413

3) Make sure that everyone in your house knows to NOT open the door for ICE. More information on your rights if ICE comes to your door are available at: http://searaids.org/know-your-rights/

4) Be wary of unusual cars lurking on your block. ICE uses unmarked American cars. Sometimes instead of knocking, ICE waits for people to leave for work to arrest them.

5) Even though this is terrifying, know that the community has your back. It’s possible to fight deportation. #RefugeeResilience

  1. I just read an article that a federal judge just barred ICE from doing raids.

    “On Thursday, Judge Cormac J. Carney in Los Angeles issued a temporary injunction, prohibiting ICE from conducting raids and, instead, ordering the government to give a 14-day written notice before detaining a Cambodian national with a deportation order. “
