ICE agents are still performing raids – and using precious N95 masks to do so

Berkeley Center for Social Medicine (BCSM) co-chair Seth Holmes and BCSM affiliate Miriam Magaña Lopez call for an end to immigration raids in this op-ed in the March 31, 2020 edition of The Guardian. The article states that "ICE raids conducted by the federal government are putting our country at risk, worsening a critical shortage of medical supplies and leading to overcrowding and movement that facilitate the spread of Covid-19. At this historic moment, we must set our priorities straight. If we want to survive, we must stop ICE raids, detention and deportation. We must provide protective equipment to frontline workers in our health system. Our lives and the future of our society depend on it."
