Chuy Garcia: 'At a hearing last week I asked former ICE acting director of Homan how is it possible for immigration officials to put children in cages, to let migrants go hungry, to make them sleep on cold concrete floors? How do they rip children from their mother’s arms? I suggested Trump administration's racism; Homan lost his cool. We have an anti-immigrant President using every tool he has to intimidate our families.
We have Republicans in Congress who remain silent about children's deaths, sickness, and abuse in detention centers. Our communities are strong. When we are attacked we don’t back down. We don’t run. We stand up and speak out. We get stronger and we organize to protect our families. These attacks make me more determined than ever. I am ready to organize in our community and work every day in Congress to stop ICE raids.
