That's the impression I'm getting from this:
"For far too long, we have allowed a can’t-do minority to block progress and manipulate this issue to tear our country apart, but the urgency for reform is clear: economically, practically, and morally,” said NCLR president Janet Murguia. "Policies that call for SWAT-like teams to pluck people out of their beds in the middle of the night, lead to racial profiling, separate families, exploit workers, and ignore due process are shamefully un-American."
I read the last bit as independent statements: she's opposed to each of those individually. For instance, "SWAT-like teams" and "exploit[ing] workers" have nothing in common, strongly implying that she's opposed to the SWAT part independent of the rest.
So, that means she's opposed to things like this, this, and this or apprehending the people on this list: ice.gov/pi/investigations/wanted/fugitives.htm. Either that, or she's living in a fantasy world where people like that can be arrested without "SWAT-like teams". Is there any form of immigration law enforcement that Murguia and the National Council of La Raza would not try to monkeywrench?
