Friday night congestion in New York City took a turn for the worse after hundreds of protesters hit the streets in an effort to voice their displeasure of the ICE raids being conducted in several states across America.
However, it appears protesters around the country may now be grasping at things to protest.
According to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman, the raids conducted over the past two days in L.A., N.Y., Atlanta, and several other cities aren’t anything new but are business-as-usual, routine types of raids.

The spokeswoman said:
“While this week’s operation was an enforcement surge, the focus was no different than the routine, targeted arrests carried out by ICE’s Fugitive Operations Teams on a daily basis.”
Approximately 160 people were arrested during these raids and it’s just ICE doing what it has always done, only stepping up the pace.
Of course, protesters took to the streets of New York City Friday to complain about the raids, anyway.
