Governor Newsom Warns Illegal Immigrants Ahead of Scheduled Raids

Governor Gavin Newsom is warning illegal immigrants to not open the door to ICE agents ahead of scheduled raids this weekend.

The governor also spoke about rights to legal representation and due process in a video he posted to social media. Newsom struck an upbeat tone even when highlighting how the state has overcome anti-immigrant efforts in the past. He told his constituents “We’re going to get through it stronger than ever.” The raids are reportedly targeting 2,000 people who face deportation orders in ten U.S. cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
