The Midwest office of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Chicago recently announced intentions to host a Citizens Academy, a program designed to teach and train residents from several states about the work carried out by ICE against immigrants.

Invitees to the training were told that they would "participate in scenario-based training and exercises conducted in a safe and positive environment, including, but not limited to defensive tactics, firearms familiarization and targeted arrests." Tell your representatives in Congress to block all funding for these ICE training.
