Denver, CO (July 24, 2017) – On Wednesday, June 22, community members were enraged and saddened when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detained Cristina, Colorado mother and community member, when she attended her routine check-in. Cristina is one more of the victims of ICE’s “silent raids,” as the agency is targeting immigrants during their check-ins with ICE field offices, or during any opportunity they have to detain undocumented immigrants,even those who are survivors of violence and abuse.
