ICE Raids Home of U.S. Citizen
On the morning of Tuesday, September 30th, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents raided the home of 69 year-old Olga Savage.
The 68-year-old woman told Action 4 News that she heard a knock at her door Tuesday morning.
But before she had a chance to get up she said U.S. Immigration & Customers Enforcement (ICE) agents were inside her home.
“They came in with guns, grenades and holding their pistols,” Savage recalled.
When she asked them why they came into her home they allegedly responded, "Show us your papers."
Savage complied by showing them documentation proving that she's been a United States citizen for 40 years.
She said they were shocked to see the paperwork.
“They looked confused and said, 'They told us you didn’t have your papers',” she recalled.
After verifying her documentation, they made copies and left.
Olga said they didn't offer an apology or help.
Not only did ICE enter her home without permission, but they did so brandishing weapons worthy of a war zone. Why is this excessive force needed? So ICE can forcibly enter a home and terrorize a US citizen with no reprecussions - is this the country you want to live in?
The raid left Olga in such shock that her blood pressure skyrocketed to 280. She was visibly in distress, but ICE agents left with no apology or offer for help. She was forced to drive herself to the hospital to seek medical care.
How much more of this do we have to witness until the government steps in and regulates ICE and their gestapo tactics?
