Update: Napolitano Calls for Investigation of WA Raid!


Late yesterday, Janet Napolitano called for an investigation into the first worksite ICE raid of the Obama administration. This is a great victory and the first step to winning Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

From the AP:

Napolitano told lawmakers during a hearing in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday that she did not know about the raid before it happened and was briefed on it early Wednesday morning. She has asked U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which arrested 28 illegal immigrants in the raid, for answers.

“I want to get to the bottom of this as well,” she said. She said work-site enforcement needs to be focused on the employers.

Thanks to everyone who made calls and faxed into the White House to demand an end to the raids . I’ve heard so many people called in that it was difficult to even get through. FIRM and other National groups also had immigrant rights advocates on the Hill meeting with members of Congress in order to make our outrage heard. And it was!

If you would like to call the White House or Napolitano again today, please do so.

Thank Obama and Napolitano  for their attention to the raid and the call for an investigation and continue to urge them to end the raids and pass Just and Humane Immigration Reform NOW.
