Democrats Clash with White House on Immigration Raids Ahead of State of the Union

The lawmakers were critical of the immigration raids.

Democrats, led by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, have protested a number of raids carried out in southern states by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers against illegal immigrants from Central America -- 121 adults and children who had been ordered to leave the country by a judge.

More than 130 House Democrats signed on to a letter to the White House Tuesday calling on the White House to suspend the raids.

“We hope that it will be heard. We have not been informed of that ... in the House side,” she said.
