Massachusetts state Rep. Michelle DuBois, a proud Democrat, took to Facebook this week to warn her constituents about upcoming Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids that are about to take place in her area. It didn’t take long for her to learn that she’d made a huge mistake…
“ICE raid in Brockton (MA) on 3/28,” DuBois wrote on Tuesday, according to The Daily Caller. “I got the following information from my friend in the Latin community: ‘I have a message for the immigrant community of Brockton. Please be careful on Wednesday 29. ICE will be in Brockton on that day.’”
“If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street,” DuBois, who represents the 10th district, added. “If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door. I ask you to be careful.”
She even included a phone number to call if one is detained by the ICE as well as a chart that explains “what to do if ICE comes to your door.”
Unfortunately for DuBois, however, her little scheme didn’t go over so well. Bristol County (MA) Sheriff Thomas Hodgson immediately spoke out to accuse DuBois’ actions of “completely [undermining] law enforcement.”
“It completely undermines law enforcement,” Sheriff tells House Subcommittee about Brockton politician who tipped illegals off to ICE raid.

In addition, DuBois was hit with so many attacks on her Facebook post that she began deleting them to try and save face.
“I am deleting attacks [on the original posts],” she wrote in one response to the criticism. “This post is to inform. Not debate immigration policy. It’s my page and I can delete posts.”
“This post is just to spread awareness of the seriousness of the new immigration policies instituted by Trump,” she wrote in an another response. “It should motivate those who can gain documentation to do so and others who can’t to start making a plan for the safety of their family.”
