TUCSON, Ariz. - The Pima County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to condemn Immigration and Customs Enforcment raids planned after Independence Day.

The board passed the resolution in a 3-2 vote at its regular meeting.

According to the White House, the raids are expected to round up immigrants in 10 cities.

Named the Swift Deportation Resolution (2019-53), the vote "opposed the White House plan to round up 'millions' of undocumented family members now in the United States for swift deportation."

Democrats Ramon Valdez, Richard Elias and Sharon Bronson voted for the resolution, while Republicans Steve Christy and Ally Miller opposed it.
