Some 200 immigrants in the Carolinas and Georgia, more than 150 in Los Angeles and around 40 in New York, have been rounded up according to ICE in recent days. One woman who was picked up was a mother of two who had pleaded guilty almost 10 years ago to using a false ID to get a job as a janitor. She was not deported. Last week, when she showed up for a routine check-in with ICE, she was deported. Do you favor aggressively deporting immigrants who have been living peacefully here for years?
