Protest over ICE raids planned at West County Detention Facility

Bay Area

On Sunday potentially hundreds of people plan to spend Father’s Day protesting ICE raids at the West County Detention Facility. 

The protest comes after a Bay Area dad says he started to feel guilty celebrating Father’s Day when dozens of dads are detained at the facility after being arrested by ICE. 

Abraham Drucker created a Facebook event with Megan Dooley and the two have invited hundreds of people. 

Drucker says there is no way he could celebrate today while families are being torn apart. 

Over the last few months, ICE has set out on several raids across the Bay Area, netting 50 people in February. 

Those detained are mostly brought to the West County Detention Facility. 

The protest starts at 11 a.m.
