ICE attempts 3 raids across NYC

BROOKLYN -

While unsuccessful, city leaders say ICE made three attempts across the city over the weekend.

Authorities tell News 12 that two of the three attempts were made in Brooklyn, with the other in East Harlem. No arrests were made.

The mayor's Office of Immigration Affairs created an Action NYC hotline, which has information on where you can get city funded legal help. There is also the "boots on the ground" operation where city employees are literally in the targeted neighborhoods handing out "know your rights" resources to people in the area.

"You know the main thing we're telling people is to remember that you have rights, you have, you know, you have. You don't need to let anybody in; if they say that they have a warrant, you can ask them to slide it under the door; you have the right to speak to an attorney you have the right not to consent to a search, so your rights attached these are so important," says Bitta Mostof, of the mayor's Office of Immigration Affairs.

For those who see ICE agents in their neighborhood or to get more information on how to access help from the city, call 311 and say "Action NYC."
