‘Nobody Opened the Door’: Neighbors Rally During an ICE Raid in Houston

‘Nobody Opened the Door’: Neighbors Rally During an ICE Raid in Houston HOUSTON — The immigration raid early Monday morning at the El Paraiso Apartments in Houston was not exactly a major victory for law enforcement. It was foiled, in part, by 19-year-old Kaylin Garcia. Shortly before 7 a.m. Monday, Ms. Garcia was sitting in her car near her family’s apartment, in a largely Hispanic section of southwest Houston about 15 miles from downtown. She saw four Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents walk by — one dressed in camouflage fatigues and the others wearing black T-shirts and bulletproof vests. They were knocking on apartment doors.

The name of the woman cited has not yet been released.

The flag was removed on July 12.

According to the Associated Press, protesters pulled down the American flag in front of the detention center, tried to burn it and replaced it with a Mexican flag.

The protest, which was one of many coordinated across the country, drew about 2,000 people and was mostly peaceful.

However, police said that a few people passed a makeshift barrier outside the center run by the GEO Group and crossed a vehicle bridge, causing hundreds to follow.

Some removed three flags — the U.S., Colorado and GEO flags. The two other flags were replaced with ones with anti-police messages.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tips can also be emailed to apdcrimetips@auroragov.org. A reward of up to $4,000 is being offered.

Tensions intensify between LAPD and ICE over immigration raids.
LOS ANGELES - Tensions between Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Los Angeles police have ramped up over the last month amid the Trump administration's loud threats to unleash immigration sweeps. As word spread about a national ICE operation expected to result in thousands of arrests, local officials tried to reassure immigrants in L.A. Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore said that ICE would target about 140 people in Southern California. In a video shared last week, Moore also stood beside Mayor Eric Garcetti as he told residents they did not have to open their doors for an ICE agent who does not have a warrant signed by a judge.
