A new Trump administration immigration policy that went into effect Friday has some immigrant communities across the country expressing fear and concern about what happens next for their family members, many of whom will no longer be able to move legally to the United States after waiting years for visas. Carrying signs that read "Abolish ICE" and "Close ICE Jails," the protesters also criticized the administration's move to expand a controversial travel ban to include citizens from Nigeria, Myanmar, Sudan and three other countries. Brian Lozano of Wind of the Spirit and Jorge Torres of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network said they are encouraging immigrant community members to report any sightings of ICE officers working with the Border Patrol agents.
