President Donald Trump increased the federal government’s power last week to find, arrest, and deport any immigrants who are in the country illegally, not just those who have committed serious crimes. This has led to reported raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency throughout the country.

There is confusion among politicians, including Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. Walsh said he has heard conflicting reports from the Trump administration and the State Department about who the raids are targeting. The Mayor, wanting to subdue any fear or anxiety felt by Boston residents, spoke at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center in Roxbury on Friday.
