Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Trump administration is rounding up and deporting "law-abiding" illegal immigrants and is demanding "details" about who is being targeted in a series of recent raids carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.
"I have always supported smart immigration enforcement that helps to keep our country safe, but raids targeting law-abiding immigrants and treating those with traffic violations the same as murderers and robbers will only achieve the opposite," Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement Monday.
Immigration officials said the agency targeted mainly serious criminals and those who are considered a public safety threat. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/schumer-raids-are-snaring-law-abiding-illegals/article/2614688#.WKXZt5pDHic.facebook
