Heads up, everyone! It's confirmed that ICE intends to conduct raids in cities early Sunday morning to round up specific targets and take them into custody.

People are being used as pawns for 2020 yet again. This time we need to fight back. This is a pander to the xenophobes, white nationalists, and neo-Nazis. It must stop.

Can you help us out?
