Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Lou Correa presented Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kelly with photos of an ICE vehicle patrolling Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. The images were given to Rep. Correa by Bishop Vann of the Orange County Diocese, along with a letter the Bishop sent to Department of Homeland Security Associate Director of Legislative Affairs Anthony C. Acocella asking that ICE stay off Diocese property.

Congressman Correa said, “Christ Cathedral is my church. I know what it looks like, and these photos clearly show an ICE vehicle staking out the parking lot. This is despicable, and this behavior must end. It is intimidation, and it is wrong."
