Jewish Groups and Synagogues Prepare to Shelter Immigrants During ICE Raids

Source: Ha'aretz

NEW YORK — The Jewish community in New York mobilized Sunday to help undocumented immigrants who are at risk of being rounded up for deportation, as families and others braced for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids that President Donald Trump said would begin that day.

The raids threaten some 2,000 undocumented immigrants in several major American cities, including Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.

In past weeks, immigrant communities have prepared themselves for the roundup, reporting widespread fear. According to CNN, “They've been stocking up on groceries and making plans to stay in their homes with the lights off and the blinds down.” They have also been counseling each other on what to do if ICE agents appear at their doors, posting signs within their homes as reminders.

The organization T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights joined the New Sanctuary Coalition, a network of houses of worship around the New York area that are offering a haven to undocumented immigrants during the raids.
