Rome, N.Y. — John Collins was standing outside the milk house at his dairy farm this morning when he heard yelling coming from inside. He ran in, he says, and saw his worker, Marcial de Leon Aguilar, pinned up against the window by armed men.
The men did not identify themselves and were screaming at Aguilar, Collins said.
“I run and say, ‘What the hell is going on in here?'” Collins said.
Then the men told Collins they were officers with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He asked them for a warrant or some paperwork to explain what they were doing. They had none, he said, so he ordered them to get off his property and leave Aguilar alone.
Do what you have to do, but do it right.
Yes, I agree with ICE raids, but not without a warrant as the law calls for. If you want to come down on me over this, remember they are not perfect – remember the Constitution Free zones in the US anywhere within 100 miles of a border or coast line?
