EXCLUSIVE: ICE agents try to raid Brooklyn homeless shelter without warrants, sources say

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents tried to enter a Brooklyn homeless shelter Tuesday night but were turned away after failing to produce a warrant, said Christine Quinn, the shelter network’s director.

The agents came to the East New York WIN shelter around 10 p.m. and showed guards a photo of someone they were seeking to detain, she said.

The ICE agents said they had a warrant. When asked to display it, they balked, and WIN guards denied them entry.

“They showed nothing except for a picture of an individual,” Quinn said. “The guards kept saying, ‘Show us a warrant signed by a judge.’ They wouldn’t show a warrant.”

ICE spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow denied that ICE sent an enforcement team to the shelter.

1. "ICE spokeswoman Rachael Yong Yow denied that ICE sent an enforcement team to the shelter."

So, either she is lying or ICE has rogue agents.

Remind me again why we even need ICE
