Dozens voiced their concerns for the raids in the parking lot across from the US District Courthouse.

“We want people who are in detention camps to know we support them,” said Jesse Case of Iowa City. “They are now afraid of our government but they are our neighbors and going to school with our kids; we don’t see someone who is escaping poverty as a threat to society.”
