Gearing up to respond to the escalation of arrests and deportations, a group of immigration and civil rights advocates began building a first-of-its-kind rapid response network for Northern California. They are coordinating efforts for a campaign of legal education for immigrant communities and engage pro bono attorneys to represent immigrants at risk of deportation, including those arrested during raids. The volunteers of the network are trained to call a hotline, observe, and document in case they witness a deportation arrest or raid. Analysts also comment on the DHS decision to end TPS protection for 200,000 Salvadorans, and the calls on Congress to come up with a permanent solution and on the states to help provide protection for the now vulnerable resident.
