National Lawyers Guild courthouse protest in Manhattan tomorrow, which would be too narrow to post here except for other information on the page about legal rights of people arrested in earlier protests.

ETA: See https://www.nlg.org/legal-community-strikes-back-on-f17/ for events in many other cities, eg Washington DC, Boston, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Sacramento, etc. See bit.ly/LawStrikesBack on Facebook for coverage.

Via Faithful America:

Several Latino men had just left the hypothermia shelter at Rising Hope Mission Church in Alexandria, Virginia when a dozen federal agents suddenly surrounded them, pushed them up against a wall, and began checking their immigration status.

Under a policy set by the Obama administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are supposed to avoid churches and other "sensitive locations."

But now that Donald Trump is president, ICE has apparently decided that it's okay to lie in wait outside a church and indiscriminately detain those leaving it.

This raid appears to be the first of its kind, so we need a huge national outcry immediately - before ICE attacks the sanctity of any more churches.
