Trump administration considers mobilizing as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants.If every one of the 100,000 Guardsmen arrests and deports about 100 undocumented immigrants, the streets will be cleared of them, along with many businesses, farms, schools and so on.
The DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) and ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) did conduct criminal investigations in central Arkansas, including Little Rock. The investigations were criminal in scope and did NOT involve immigration related issues.ICE is so demonstrably anti-immigrant (its officers supported Trump for president and its tactics, as Linda Greenhouse notes, should cause some concern for those who value the Constitution) that I take the police's bland assurances with some skepticism.
Mosaic Church has been helping undocumented immigrants get their papers for more than fifteen years. Pastor, Mark DeYmaz said some of his church members, and those who need his services most, to become legal, are afraid to even leave the house.
“There's a very real fear in the immigrant and refugee community that by congregating in places like a church, like Mosaic, in large groups, this could be leveraged by federal government to take large groups of people in to custody, or certainly to vet them as it were” DeYmaz said.

“While we haven’t had any contact from the Administration in regard to this issue, I would have concerns about the utilization of National Guard resources for immigration enforcement with the current deployment responsibilities our guardsmen have overseas. During my time at Homeland Security, we utilized National Guard partnerships for specific responsibilities along the border, so the concept is fine, but it’s a matter of resources. In Arkansas, I believe it would be too much of a strain on our National Guard personnel.”
