FOX NEWS - A New Jersey town is attempting to protect illegal immigrants from "really unfortunate" arrests by publishing handouts in English and Spanish that encourage immigrants "to remain silent" and "have a plan!" if confronted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers.
The response from Princeton officials comes following the targeted arrest of two illegal immigrants in the town early Thursday morning, one of whom had a drunken driving conviction, an ICE official told NJ.com.
Councilwoman Heather Howard has been a leading advocate for working with the local immigrant population to prevent detentions and deportations.
"These [arrests] are really unfortunate," she told NJ.com. "They cause fear and panic in the community, and they work to undermine the community's effort to improve law enforcement relations."
