WICIR states that reports have been made regarding immigration arrests in Ypsilanti.
The organization WICIR (Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition For Immigrant Rights) sent out an alert on their facebook page Wednesday regarding arrests made by ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) in Ypsilanti. According to a post on the WICIR facebook page, "This morning immigration agents arrested some folks in Ypsilanti. There have been a number of reports of immigration enforcement activity on the major Ypsi roads." To be clear, these are quotes from the WICIR facebook page. I need to stress that these reports are unconfirmed.
Wednesday afternoon Purple Walrus Press contacted ICE media relations department seeking information regarding information posted by WICIR. ICE media relations replied to PWP Wednesday evening stating that they are checking into the matter. As of 9:00 pm Wednesday evening I am waiting for information from ICE regarding immigration arrests in Ypsilanti.
Stay tuned for more information.
