What Can We Do to Resist the ICE Raids?

Last week’s arrests of some 680 immigrants are almost certainly the beginning of a large and well-publicized Trump administration assault on the country’s more than 11 million undocumented people. The raids have sparked a number of local protests, but what are the plans for building long-term resistance?

Below we’re listing two national organizations that are asking people to pledge their support for targeted immigrants. There will undoubtedly be many more efforts like these, both nationally and locally. If you have information on additional plans to resist the raids, please contact us at —TPOI editor

 #HereToStay Network (United We Dream)

[United We Dream describes itself as “the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation” with a network “of over 100,000 immigrant youth and allies and 55 affiliate organizations in 26 states.”]

I am ready to support immigrants at risk of deportation by the Trump regime.

I pledge to physically show up for immigrants in my community when they need me.

We are getting reports from dozens of cities that Trump regime agents are raiding homes to deport immigrants and their families.

If you chanted “Immigrants are welcome here,” at a protest - it’s time to show up.

If you flooded the airport to fight for refugees - it’s time to show up.

If you hit the streets when Trump announced his immigration orders - it’s time to show up.

The #HereToStay Network is a group of people ready to fight for immigrants at risk of deportation. When Trump agents show up to raid immigrants’ homes and workplaces, we'll need you to show up.
