A meme making the rounds on social media has turned out to be a vital piece of information for those vulnerable to being arrested under the Trump administration's immigration crackdown.

The new wave of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids that began over the weekend, targeting undocumented migrants in major cities around the United States, weren't as large as initially feared, Still, the #KnowYourRights meme being passed around on social media proved to be helpful, if not essential, for those at risk, as additional raids and arrests could continue throughout the week.

Even politicians have gotten in on the act, spreading information and graphics on their social media accounts.

The raids come on the heels of a volatile few weeks of debate around the border camps where migrants are being detained. Reports of inhumane conditions continue to flood news outlets with many of the Democratic candidates for president visiting the shelters and decrying the near-squalor detainees are forced to live in.

There are no details currently as to how many people were actually arrested in this round of raids. According to the Times, approximately 2,000 people in total were expected to be targeted but, so far, there have been only a few reported arrests.
