REDDING, Calif. - A series of ICE raids are set to unfold around the nation on Sunday that are meant to target approximately 2,000 people for deportation.

Though most of those targeted are believed to be people who have recently entered the U.S., that is not easing fears among those who have lived in this country for a long time without legal status.

It was spring of 2018 when several people living in Tehama and Butte counties told Action News Now that family members were detained during a series of ICE raids. Now, in 2019, we asked people in the North State how they are feeling about the planned deportations scheduled for this weekend.

Many people chose not to share their views on camera. Some of them said they do not agree with the planned raids.

Ruth Halperen said, "I think it's terrible! I think it's turning America into a police state," she said. "Everyone has to have their papers with them at all times and you can be stopped and searched for no reason," she added, saying she thinks it is a way of creating a terrorist society.  

Marissa Savage told Action News Now that even though we want to welcome everybody, she knows a lot of people like her family, "have mixed feeling about things being done the proper way... If we have rules set up we should go by those rules.

At this time we have not received any reports of raids happening in the North State.

Watch the video to find out more about the planned raids and to hear from a few people interviewed on the Sundial Bridge in Redding who were visiting from the Bay Area.
