Social media users have begun using sites such as Facebook to warn illegal aliens of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) checkpoints, recent locations, and deportation spots in their areas.
This information includes noteworthy checkpoints on local roads; geo-tagged photos of pulled over police cars; advisory details when encountering ICE agents; and even suggestions on how to follow driving safety rules to avoid being pulled over.
Thus far, these private Facebook groups are representing the states of California, Texas, North Carolina, New York, Illinois, Tennessee, and Georgia.
Many of these networking groups have a strong coalition of memberships since President Trump took office. In El Paso, Texas, around 2,000 members joined an anti-ICE Facebook group last week. And in one California Facebook group, Retenes California, membership is over 113,000 users.
An app. called Zello is also being utilized by many members of these groups. Zello is a communications app. that allows as little bandwidth and battery power as possible to contact an individual in need while remaining nearly undetected.
