ICE Uses Arrest Quotas for Its Mass Immigration Raids, Documents Show

As U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, at the behest of
President Donald Trump, plans mass raids following the July Fourth
holiday, newly released documents shed light on the tactics the agency
employs during such operations.
The documents, released Wednesday
by the immigrant rights groups Mijente, Just Futures Law, and Detention
Watch Network, show that ICE officials are building arrest target lists
for mass raids to meet specific numbers, even as the agency continues
to internally and publicly stress a “public safety” rationale for
immigration arrests.
