BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have arrested multiple people in a Washington state county, a move advocates say was based on racial profiling.

The Kitsap Sun reported Tuesday that immigration advocates have criticized ICE activity in Kitsap County for racial profiling during targeted operations.

Two immigrant advocacy organizations have urged residents to know their rights.

American Civil Liberties Union officials say a judge-signed search warrant is required to give police and immigration officers’ access to search property.

Officials say there are some exceptions, but people should assert their rights under the Constitution, including the right to remain silent.



Some county officials say increasing immigration operations in the state are inflicting fear in families and pushing communities into economic crisis when a friend or relative is detained.
