In a June 7 article, Wendy Libertore reported in the Times Union about recent arrests by ICE in Saratoga Springs and the community’s response.
The previous week ICE arrested sixteen men.

Speaking on behalf of the church, Terry Diggory told the TU that “This is not a partisan stand. We are taking a political stand for the welfare of the community because the rhetoric under the Trump Administration has turned distressing.”
Citing the reliance on undocumented workers by the flat track and the “hospitality industry”, a number of politicians and business people expressed their concern about the policy.
