ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) is set to begin raids with court-ordered removals in 10 cities beginning Sunday.
President Trump said on Monday evening in a pair of tweets that ICE will begin the process of removing millions illegal aliens who have illicitly entered the US.
According to reports by CNN and WaPo, the raids will begin Sunday.
“ICE agents will likely execute predawn raids starting Sunday, targeting as many as 2,000 migrant families facing deportation orders in as many as 10 U.S. cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles,” reported the Washington Post.
“The agency is planning to use hotel rooms as temporary staging areas to detain parents and children until all the members of a family are together and ready for deportation,” reported the Washington Post.
“If you’re here illegally, then you should be removed,” acting head of ICE Mark Morgan told reporters Wednesday during a call. “And in this case, that includes families.”
Field agents at local field offices are receiving briefings and trainings, according to a senior immigration official, reported CNN.
“Due to law-enforcement sensitivities and the safety and security of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel, the agency will not offer specific details related to ongoing enforcement operations before the conclusion of those actions,” ICE said in a statement Friday.
Well now that the illegals have been tipped off, they will likely flee to another hiding spot.
