This is a release today from the Dubuque Police Department regarding a false report on Facebook and other Social media.

 

This afternoon the Dubuque Police Department became aware of social media activity alleging ICE was/is in Dubuque conducting “raids” and taking illegal immigrants into custody.

The Dubuque Police Department is unaware of any such operation and/or the presence of any federal personnel in Dubuque for this purpose. This rumor appears to have been fabricated by one or more individuals posting/sharing inaccurate information they failed to fact-check.
