Trump Orders Immigration Raids for Migrants with Deportation Orders

Regardless of when they happen, as of now, Mayor Jacob Frey, City Council President Lisa Bender and MPD Chief Medaria Arradondo say Minneapolis is not believed to be one of the cities that will be targeted by raids.

"We want the community to know you have the right to remain silent, and that anywhere that you are, house, work, school, church, the ICE agents absolutely need a warrant signed by a judge in order to enter", said church leader Sarah Walker.

Earlier Saturday, Trump depicted the planned operation as "going by the rules, going by our court system, and taking people out of our country who came into our country illegally".

DC followed other ICE-targeted cities such as Chicago, whose local police department on Friday blocked ICE access to local databases related to immigration enforcement.

However, multiple officials raised concerns regarding the president's plan, specifically House Democrats who've repeatedly noted their concerns about the Trump administration's approach to immigration enforcement.

The president tweeted on Monday about the raids.

Montgomery County Police on Saturday said it would not cooperate with the ICE raids.

"These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country", Mr Trump wrote. Baraka and the New Jersey Urban Mayors Association said in a joint statement that they were committed to protecting immigrant communities. "Many of those cities are high-crime and sanctuary cities".

A senior immigration official has confirmed that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement is set to launch raids in 10 USA cities, including NY, beginning Sunday.

The Trump administration is expected to launch raids on up to 2,000 migrant families facing deportation orders in up to 10 US cities including Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and Miami, local media reported Friday. (Why we're tipping all of them off remains a mystery.) While I suppose it was sadly inevitable, this led to some immediate pushback from Democratic mayors in these urban population centers, along with some governors. She called for a comprehensive immigration package that includes a path to citizenship for the roughly 11 million people who are in the country illegally.

On Friday, the cities' mayors spoke out against the raids and expressed support for the migrant families.

The US is still reeling from the Trump administration's short-lived migrant family separation policy a year ago.

Neither Pelosi nor Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, had immediate comment on the delay.

The Post said ICE was 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".
