Attorney General James denounced Donald Trump's "despicable act of racism and xenophobia" regarding impending ICE raids...

New York Attorney General Letitia James released the following statement in response to news that President Trump has ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to begin rounding up thousands of migrant families this weekend:

“President Trump’s use of migrant families and asylum seekers as political punching bags is a despicable act of racism and xenophobia that is antithetical to our basic human values.

“The president has threatened to begin raids in New York and across the country this weekend in an effort to round up thousands of migrant families.

“This is an immoral and unconscionable act by a president and an Administration hell-bent on dividing our country, and, as New York’s top law enforcement officer, I can assure New Yorkers we will do everything in our power to fight back against these inhumane policies.

“If you want to check whether a removal order has been issued against you, you can call the Immigration Court Information System’s automated number at 1-800-898-7180. “If you need advice, call the Office of New Americans hotline at 1-800-566-7636.”
