Press Release

San Antonio, TX – Today, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) released the following statement regarding reports of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids taking place in Texas: 
“I have been informed by ICE that the agency’s San Antonio field office has launched a targeted operation in South and Central Texas as part of Operation Cross Check. I am asking ICE to clarify whether these individuals are in fact dangerous, violent threats to our communities, and not people who are here peacefully raising families and contributing to our state. I will continue to monitor this situation.”
