Counterintuitive ICE

After making the largest workplace bust in U.S. history and scaring the hell out of a Hispanic community in Mississippi as Gustav's bearing for the Gulf Coast became clear, ICE is now urging immigrants to evacuate in advance of Gustav's landfall. They're promising no check points along evacuation routes, but I wouldn't buy it if I were an immigrant.

It looks like a choice between their lives and keeping their families together. It sounds like ICE is forcing something akin to Sophie's Choice.
