“Trump administration has directed DHS to conduct these raids as part of what I believe is this administration’s campaign of terror…To make whole populations of people afraid to go to work,” Sen. Kamala Harris said Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”

“Children are afraid to go to school for fear that when they come home, their parents won’t be there,” Sen. Harris continued.


Sen. Harris was referring to the raids that were carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Wednesday and resulted in the detention of 680 illegal immigrants. Agents targeted a food processing plant in Mississippi and swarmed the facility with federal search warrants in hand.

Nearly half of the detainees were released back out onto the streets the following day, however, on humanitarian grounds.
