Statement from Mayor de Blasio on Reports of Future ICE Raids Planned for May and June

"I am outraged to read reports of future ICE raids planned for May and June targeting Central American mothers and children. Many of these families have fled violence in their home countries and seek safety here, in the city of immigrants. The City of New York is in no way involved in these reported immigration enforcement actions. We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, can access City services with a sense of security and peace of mind."
"Estoy indignado al leer informes de futuras redadas previstas para mayo y junio en contra de madres y niños centroamericanos. Muchas de estas familias han huido de la violencia en sus países de origen y buscan seguridad aquí, en la ciudad de los inmigrantes. La Ciudad de Nueva York no está involucrada en las redadas reportadas. Estamos siguiendo de cerca la situación para asegurar que todos los neoyorquinos, sin importar su estatus migratorio, puedan acceder a los servicios de la ciudad con seguridad y tranquilidad".
