Yesterday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told illegal aliens with deportation orders how to evade arrest. She did so from Capitol Hill during her weekly press conference.
“If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in,” Pelosi says of the #ICEraids— TicToc by Bloomberg (@tictoc) July 11, 2019

Now, the ACLU is also jumping on board with their own coaching. They're also calling illegal aliens, who have been through the court system and determined to have broken federal immigration law, "refugee families."
"A new wave of ICE arrests is expected to begin this Sunday in at least 10 cities across the country. We're fighting back by suing to stop mass deportations of refugee families," the ACLU sent in a fundraising email Friday. "Know this: We don't have to open the door if ICE comes knocking. If the agents don't have a warrant signed by a judge, then we can refuse to let them in. We have the right to remain silent. And we shouldn't sign anything before speaking to a lawyer."
"ICE raids are nothing new. But for over two years now, the Trump administration has been terrorizing our communities at a new level – tearing thousands of families apart, spreading fear and hate. If this isn't the kind of country we want to live in, then we must keep fighting to defend our communities," the email continues. "The best way to fight back? Know your rights. And help your family, friends, and neighbors to know theirs."
On Friday morning, President Trump told reporters at the White House he has an obligation to carry out ICE raids against those who have already been told to leave.
"People come into our country illegally. We’re taking them out legally. It’s very simple. It’s not something I like doing, but people have come into our country illegally," Trump said. "We're focused on criminals. We're focused on -- if you look at MS-13 -- but when people come into our country, we take those people out and we take them out very legally. They all have papers. And it's a process. And I have an obligation to do it. They came in illegally; they go out legally."
The raids will start on Sunday and be conducted in 10 cities across the country.
