League Stands with Immigrants Ahead of ICE Raids

Press Release / Last Updated:

WASHINGTON – League of Women Voters CEO Virginia Kase issued the following statement ahead of the administration’s planned raids to arrest and deport undocumented immigrants living in the United States.  

"The League of Women Voters stands in solidarity with the entire immigrant community during this terrifying time. The inhumane detention and deportation policies of this administration are un-American and an insult to our democracy.  

"America is a beacon of hope and freedom for millions around the world. All migrants, asylum seekers, and citizens alike deserve to live with dignity and free from fear of detainment and scrutiny. 

"Ahead of this weekend’s raids around the country, we urge citizens and non-citizens alike to know your rights. Whether documented or not, every person in America is protected by the U.S. Constitution."
