Pelosi asked Trump to delay immigration sweep

Pelosi asked Trump to delay immigration sweep

Porras said it's still unclear "exactly how quickly" ICE would begin the deportation process for those individuals, and whether they will have access to legal services.

Trump announced Saturday afternoon in a tweet that at "the request of Democrats" he would hold off the raids for two weeks.

Immigration law experts are warning Kenyans living in the U.S. illegally to avoid places and situations that would bring them into direct contact with or expose them to American immigration officers ahead of planned countrywide raids beginning Sunday.

The Trump administration had planned to deport more than 2,000 undocumented immigrants in as many as 10 cities in an unprecedented show of force aimed at deterring illegal migration of families.

The operation is expected to target up to 2,000 families facing deportation orders in as many as 10 USA cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles, according to the Post. "This may be a way for law enforcement to catch them off guard".

Fox News' Leland Vittert challenged Steube, saying Republicans had a chance to pass immigration reform after the 2016 elections when they had control of both congressional chambers and the White House. (It's not like we've caught them all yet.) There are, no doubt, also plenty of employers hiring illegals to go after.

For police departments, cooperation with immigration officials could weaken communities' trust in police and make it more hard, Leopold said.

"I would hope he would apply that same value to avoiding the collateral damage to tens of thousands of children who are frightened by his actions", Pelosi said in a statement. "They have gone through the process, the process has rendered their decision and so those are the people that are being affected by the publicized mass raids". Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"We are all aware of the threat from President Trump regarding raids by ICE, and in response, Chicago has taken concrete steps to support our immigrant communities", Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted on Friday. This alleged phone call appears to be reflected in Trump's tweet regarding the raids.

Responding to the news that the raids had been delayed, Frey reinforced that the police department won't help in any ICE-related activity.

The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that it was aware of the raids and would not participate.

Critics said the plan was just another way the administration is working to separate families.

Targets of the enforcement operation could include people in "family units" who already had received final orders to leave the country, according to national reports.

"Mr. President, delay is welcome", the longtime California Democrat wrote.

The administration's plans - and the apparent walking back of those plans - have created chaos, said state Sen.

In March, ICE said arrests of immigrants in the interior of the United States dropped in the first quarter of the 2019 fiscal year, which began last October.
