Latino community in Lincoln on edge after ICE raids

By  | 

In Lincoln, the ICE raids and arrests also have people on edge. Phones have been busy at El Centro De Las Americas which provides services to the Latino community such as education, family support and youth programs.

"The main thing is when something happens like this in Nebraska, especially in the Latino community, the word gets around quickly so even though it might happen in O'Neill or Grand Island or so fourth, it has a big ripple effect," said Romeo Guerra with the center.

Guerra also said the center is using social media pages as the main point for distributing legal information to community members.
