REPORT: Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Raids Occurring in Downey Today


HMG-CN has been told by reliable sources that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers are conducting raids in Downey.

We are attempting to gather more information and will update when available.


Received a letter from Christopher Sanchez  at CHIRLA:

I wanted to give you a heads up. We have received information that ICE raids are happening right now in the cities of Van Nuys, Downey, San Bernardino, and Santa Paula. We know the following about the raids:

  • ICE is going to people’s home.
  • People that are being targeted have existing orders of deportation, and old removal orders.
  • Those involved in the sweep have no prior criminal convictions.
  • We are estimating that there is 100 people that have been affected

We are asking legislative offices to contact ICE’s Los Angeles regional office Chief Counsel Sandra Anderson (213) 894 – 2805 or (213) 830 – 7911 (This office is responsible for Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County, Orange County, Riverside). We are asking to request the following information:

  • How many folks have they detained/arrested in the raids today
  • Did local law enforcement participate or assist?
  • Is there any detainees with medical conditions? If so can they be released on humanitarian reasons.

If your district office needs assistance answering any questions feel free to contact our Policy Director Joseph Villela (323) 559 – 6954 or our Political Director Polo Morales at (213) 308 – 9977.

We will be hosting a press conference tomorrow denouncing the raids at the CHIRLA office in Los Angeles at 9AM.

    If you’re following the law, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Simple as that. If you’re illegal, YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW. How hard is that to comprehend?! Us natural born citizens have NO remorse for criminals.

Raping their own family. Get ur shit straight and then talk ur smack.

    Undocumented persons DO NOT qualify for WELFARE as they do not have a valid ss#, and yes, THEY DO PAY TAXES year after year just like documented people do, the only difference is that they don’t qualify for any type of REFUND again, because they do not have a valid SS#. Undocumented people are not criminals, but hard working people. I know plenty of documented people that owe child support AND get welfare…but I do not know ANY undocumented people that owe child support or get welfare. In fact, undocumented people are more careful bit breaking the laws because they know that any little mistake means they can be arrested and consequently DEPORTED. Just fyi.

    There’s so much hate in this world! Why add to it? If someone needs our help, families… Illegal or not, why not give it? Sure, it may cost us tax dollars but if we’re not taxed for that, it’s something else! There’s crime committed everywhere and not only by immigrants but by citizens, whites, blacks, yellows… However you want to classify them… You mean people?? We are a human race and not better than anyone else because of the borders that have been divided set by man! Yes there are laws that govern the land but does it rule over morality, kindness, sympathy and good ethics? We are all not perfect and some make bad choices. I wouldn’t want to see any family or friends or their families and their friends to be torn apart by these borders! #theresonlyoneracethehumanrace #bekindandluvthyneighbor
