MIAMI — Immigration activist LuzHilda Muñoz spit out her anger when she learned Saturday that President Donald Trump had just tweeted he was delaying planned immigration raids, a prospect that had sent fear through her community.
While glad about the reprieve, Muñoz said she was not convinced Trump’s tweet was true, and it did little to calm the anxiety she felt after hearing that Immigration and Customs Enforcement would round up illegal families in several U.S. cities starting Sunday. Trump said he would delay it for two weeks.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Its just very infuriating to know he feels he has the right to f——- play with our lives,” said Muñoz, who runs a deportation defense program for alien advocacy group United We Dream.
Marjorie Murillo, a community liaison specialist for Miami Dade Public Schools, said going from hyper-vigilance to wait-and-see was like keeping up with a hurricane.
“It’s coming, maybe it will turn a little bit, stay on guard,” Murillo said. “We can’t ever let our guard down.”
Everyone come back.
Just because Trump announced a delay in deportations “this week” doesn’t mean they are done.
Every single day people are facing this fear, alone. The fact that we were all talking about it made many people finally feel seen, it made their fear valid.
