*Raid: We use “raid” to mean any U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrest in the community, regardless of whether ICE is targeting one individual for arrest or whether they are questioning anyone in a given place.
By calling either one a “raid,” we recognize the trauma that ICE actions inflict on not only an individual arrested but also to witnesses, family members and communities. We often use the term “raid” interchangeably with “arrest.”
