Pelosi Told Trump That He Was 'Scaring The Children Of America'

The reports that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency planned to conduct large-scale enforcement actions sparked an outcry from Democratic leaders in many major US cities, who condemned the plan and initiated efforts to help affected undocumented migrants.

Following the president's announcement, Pelosi tweeted: "Mr. President, delay is welcome".

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke by telephone with President Trump Friday night, asking him to call off the raids.

But Trump said in a tweet on Sunday the raids would go ahead later this month if Democrats did not allow him to tighten laws to make it more hard for people to claim asylum in the US.

But he warned that if the two sides can not reach a deal - which he must bless before signing into law - "deportations start!"

Rihanna rarely minces words when it comes to her personal politics and has been vocal about her distaste for the President in the past.

Pelosi responded that Trump's delay was "welcome", and that "time was needed for immigration reform".

Advocates say families and children are fleeing violence, hunger and poverty, but Trump has said that "loopholes" in asylum laws are fueling the surge and that he is willing to wield his leverage to pry concessions from Democrats.

On Saturday, House Democratic aides told CNN that they did not believe Trump would keep his word to cancel the raids if a deal was reached. "He is walked away from several gives on immigration. We have no illusions here", the aide said.

In February, ICE sent some 2,000 letters to families who already had received final orders of removal by courts in absentia, asking them to self-report to local ICE offices by March to comply with the orders, USA media reported.

"In my opinion, I'm safe here", she says.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which has planned the raids amid a highly unusual burst of publicity beforehand, called for tighter rules Saturday. Late past year, they refused Trump's requests for border wall funding, resulting in a month-long government shutdown that ended only when Trump said he would declare a national emergency to pay for a border wall.

Trump wrote on Twitter earlier on Saturday that ICE will apprehend people who have run from the law. These families-frequently themselves undocumented-have been subjected to arrest and detention by ICE when they offered to take in children, in many cases relatives or people from the same villages in their home countries.

"I've got the green light to anyone that's here in violation of federal immigration law, I have the authority and the support to go after them, apply consequences and remove them", he said. "They broke the law by coming into the country, & now by staying".

In an interview with NPR, Acting ICE Director Mark Morgan said many of those immigrant families are ignoring requests to turn themselves in.

As most people know, the children in these groups are often recycled - shuttled back and forth - by those who are committing crimes in an effort to take advantage of America's largesse. Publications just like the Miami Herald reported on the company's preparations to sweep by cities, together with Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and New Orleans.

"I sit on the immigration subcommittee on [the House Judiciary Committee] - they've done nothing as it relates to fixing this problem", he said.
