Immigration in Pop Culture: ICE Raid on "Shameless"



Immigration continues to influence popular culture.  In the episode that premiered yesterday, the Showtime show "Shameless," which in the past had a removal storyline, depicted an Immigration & Customs Enforcement raid on a Latinx household on the South side of Chicago.  Here is a recap of the scene:

"Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) continues to grow his relationship with Anne (Chelsea Rendon) as he helps her family with their business but when ICE comes knocking at their door, it's a hiding game for most of them. When Anne answers the door, Carl gets defensive for her and once the agents are gone he offers her a place at the Gallagher home."
