Looking back at the raids

By Halim Sheena

June 11, 2017 is a day that will stay with the community for many years to come. Hundreds of Iraqi nationals, including members of the Chaldean community, were caught up in raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and detained while they awaited deportation. With the intervention of the ACLU, those at risk were given a fighting chance. Two years later, they continue to fight. We asked community members how they felt about the continued threat of deportation.
