ICE To Begin Massive Nationwide Immigration Raids Sunday

2

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement plans to begin raids across the country Sunday to arrest thousands of family members who already have court orders to be removed, according to a US official.

The effort comes weeks after President Donald Trump had tweeted ICE’s plans to conduct the raids, then delayed the operation after additional details became public.

The New York Times first reported on the raids, saying they are expected to take place in at least 10 cities, will occur “over multiple days” and will include “collateral” deportations in which “authorities might detain immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even though they were not targets of the raids.”

Matthew Bourke, an ICE spokesman, said ICE will not comment on operational details and “ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security.”

  1. This is not appropriate for the news. Government plans to conduct such operations should not be divulged to the press. All the MSM will do is twist this to create havoc. I would hope that all were smarter than to do this. What should be newsworthy will be the reports that these deportations took place, and the rule of law rose above the immoral positions of the radical left. Tell us all after the success has been achieved.

  2. To TLIK: Do you understand that the Trump administration is the source of this news story? That the Trump administration made this announcement of planned raids?
