‘The Effect Is Terror’: Immigrant Advocates in SoCal Brace for ICE Sweeps

California police are refusing to take part in Trump’s immigration sweeps. Here’s why

California police are refusing to take part in Trump’s immigration sweeps. Here’s why

The operation was expected to begin Sunday and would have targeted people with final orders of removal, including families whose immigration cases had been fast-tracked by judges. "He's walked away from several deals on immigration".

Pelosi said in a tweet that while the delay was welcomed, "time is needed for comprehensive immigration reform".

"Nobody's trying to stand in the way of law enforcement, but what mayors can do is make sure that their citizens, their constituents know their rights", he said. "Let ICE do their job, they're the ones who are trained".

Earlier Saturday, President Trump hinted the operation was still on, saying the people ICE was looking for "have already been ordered to be deported".

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media as he departs for Camp David from the White House in Washington, U.S., June 22, 2019. Schaaf had previously alerted residents about potential ICE raids in 2018, drawing Trump's ire.

"Instead of spreading fear, we are ready now as faith communities to stand in solidarity with immigrants to offer love, to continue to urge our cities to invest in support for our immigrant neighbors that keeps our cities strong, and to ask our sheriffs and police not cooperate with ICE in such raids", Stanley-Rea said.

U.S. House of Representatives' Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in Congress, had urged religious leaders earlier on Saturday to pressure Trump to cancel the raids which were expected to target families in up to 10 U.S. cities on Sunday.

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

On Saturday, the president announced on Twitter that ICE would hold off on the roundup for two weeks "at the request of Democrats", writing that if lawmakers in Washington can not approve changes to asylum law in that time, he will again direct ICE agents to resume the raids.

Chicago's Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she had terminated ICE's access to Chicago Police Department (CPD) databases related to federal immigration enforcement activities in response to the threat of raids.

"This outrageous tearing of families apart and causing fear in communities across America is clearly a political stunt, coming on the heels of Trump's kickoff of his reelection campaign", their statement read.

Vittert continued to press Steube asking why voters should trust Republicans to follow through when they couldn't deliver on immigration the first time. "Many of those cities are high crime cities and they're sanctuary cities", Trump said.

Roberto Reveles, founding president of Somos America, says after initial word broke of ICE raids, rumors ran rampant. The deportations were originally set to begin this weekend and would affect at least 2,000 migrant families, according to CNN.

Separately, the governor of Texas said the state was deploying 1,000 National Guard troops to the border after he said more than 45,000 people were apprehended illegally crossing in the past three weeks.

"The present orders for deportation involve only those individuals who are under court order to deport", explained Reveles. He claimed that his administration would be deporting "millions" of undocumented immigrants next week - disclosing such an operation before it was carried out and surprising some officials within his own administration.
