The president has long taken a hardline stance against asylum seekers and undocumented people entering and living in this country.

This past weekend, the president and his administration made plain their intent to round up undocumented individuals, stoking extra fear in communities already ravaged by it.
For some people in the community, this past weekend was like any other—filled with lawn mowing, summer music, hanging by the shore of a Cascade lake.
