The Northern California Rapid Response Network (NCRRN) is aware of an increase in immigration enforcement actions throughout the region. This includes an increase in reports of arrests in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as surrounding regions, including at least 167 arrests in Los Angeles. NCRRN is continuing to gather information and reports from local rapid response networks. These large scale enforcement actions are the latest example of a policy of terror separating families and fostering fear and mistrust in the social fabric of our communities. The NCRRN in partnership with local rapid response networks asks that affected families reach out to local hotlines to report enforcement actions and obtain assistance. It is important to stand together and coordinate a united response to actions that are meant to inflict fear in our communities in general and sanctuary cities in particular.
