Immigrant rights advocates and groups nationwide are preparing for this weekend, when a major ICE operation is supposed to take place. President Trump promised such a move weeks ago, stoking fears among LA’s immigrant population. What do they do if ICE agents come to their door? What are their rights? These are among the questions that civic and community leaders in Los Angeles are trying to answer this week, ahead of the possible raids.
