According to a multitude of Latino callers to New York City's Spanish language radio station, La Mega 97.9 FM, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement(formally known as INS) raids are reaching NYC boroughs and New Jersey towns, such as Passaic, Clifton and Patterson. According to the callers, these raids include various ICE officers, backed by local police, shaking down Latino citizens passing by on the streets.
Allow me to make this clear. These are rumors not yet confirmed by the main stream media.
However, in my opinion, I would not doubt that the abovementioned is true. It would be the expected reaction of our government trying to squash the protests for Immigration Rights like they tried to do during the 1960's Civil Rights Movement. I would not be surprised to see that piece of history repeating itself in America soon.
What I suggest is that we make good use of camera cell phones, digital cameras, video recorders and the Internet. If this is happening, we need to get the word out. We should not have to endure jack-booted Gestapo tactics on the streets of the United States ever.
