"the lawyers who work for RAICES can no longer trust that Ring wouldn’t help police to target its clients or their families, or aid ICE officers in doing so: "They have no control over what police officers do with this info no matter what they say.”

"It sounded like many of (the students) tried to do their due diligence...one of the things that ICE did that may be kind of questionable is in an effort to make this look like a valid real place, they gave it real credentials."

ICE says students should've realized it was a set up. 🤔 We disagree. & so does Theresa Brown, director of immigration & cross border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center & former Dept. of Homeland Security official for Pres. George W. Bush & Barack Obama.
