As most of you know, an ICE raid led to 680 arrests in Mississippi on August 7, 2019. Those who had no known criminal record have been released and reunited with family members, and are awaiting a court date. Until their cases are settled, they are prohibited from working, resulting in a need for aid. Here are a couple of ways to help that our friends on the ground there have made us aware of:
