Trump claimed credit for the raids Sunday, tweeting: “The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!”
California Rep. Lou Correa sent a letter to immigration officials, outlining the unanswered questions related to the latest immigration enforcement actions.
“These activities have caused fear and uncertainty for many of constituents,” Correa wrote, and listed 10 questions for ICE, among them “What are the agency’s priorities for removal? and “How far in advance were these enforcement activities planned

California expands its legal attack on federal immigration policy in new amicus brief
In the latest case, Jennings vs. Rodriguez , the plaintiffs are noncitizens who were detained by federal authorities in Southern California for longer than six months. The lawsuit argues that the Constitution mandates that they receive a hearing on whether their detention is justified.
The class action is filed on behalf of plaintiffs including a Mexican immigrant who was detained for removal because of a drug conviction, even though he is a lawful permanent resident. Another plaintiff is an asylum seeker from Ethiopia who was detained for removal because of insufficient proof of identity.
The plaintiffs in the case want to be released on bond if the government cannot show they are a danger to the public or a flight risk, Becerra said.
“No one should be detained for months without being assessed first for his or her actual flight risk or dangerousness,” Becerra said in a statement. “Mothers and fathers are detained who cannot return home to their children; others are simply missing work. Their absences could have long-term impact on families, communities, states and the country.”
Sheriffs Still Looking for Clarity on Deportation\
Despite tough talk on sanctuary cities from the Trump administration, many sheriffs still fear that they lack the legal right to hold prisoners for possible deportation, even at the request of federal authorities.
Sheriffs, who operate 85 percent of local jails, are still waiting for courts to clarify the legality of “detainers,” or federal requests to hold prisoners for possible deportation.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order Jan. 25 promising to punish any “sanctuary jurisdictions” that “attempt to shield aliens from removal from the United States.” The order threatened cuts to federal funding and public shaming of “any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers.”
But the new administration in Washington hasn’t altered the legal landscape — at least not yet. Court rulings over the past several years have dissuaded even red-state sheriffs from honoring detainers, fearing that doing so would make them vulnerable to civil rights lawsuits.
