In Trump era, “Rapid Responders” protect undocumented immigrants from ICE

2/4/18 Less than two years after its inception, the Rapid Response Network of Santa Clara County has amassed a remarkable 700 volunteers – from longtime organizers and faith leaders to grandparents, stockbrokers and stock boys, saleswomen and software engineers – ready to respond to reports of ICE sightings with notebooks and recording devices in hand. Many of the Rapid Responders, like the Lynches, are white U.S. citizens – not directly impacted by the immigration debate – but desperate to find some way to do more than stand by.
