ICE to begin rounding up illegals this weekend, but Chicago mayor vows NO assistance…

This is the kind of news I can get behind. Let the raids begin!

The New York Times reported today that ICE is set to begin rounding up the illegals that have been cleared by a judge for deportation:

FOX 8 – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement plans to begin raids Sunday in an effort to arrest and deport “thousands” of undocumented immigrants, The New York Times reported Thursday, citing conversations with one former and two current homeland security officials.

The effort comes weeks after President Donald Trump had tweeted ICE’s plans to conduct the raids, then delayed the operation after additional details became public.

The officials, who spoke to the Times on the condition of anonymity because of the preliminary stage of the operation which is expected to take place in at least 10 cities, told the paper that the raids will occur “over multiple days,” and will include “collateral” deportations in which “authorities might detain immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even though they were not targets of the raids.”

The agency is targeting “at least 2,000″ immigrants” who have already been ordered to leave the country but have not done so, according to the Times, which noted that some of those orders were the result of the immigrants not appearing during court proceedings.

Those who will be targeted “crossed the border recently” and many were “given notice to report to an ICE office and leave the United States” in February, the homeland security officials told the Times.



The mayor of Chicago is already saying that she won’t allow Chicago police to aid ICE in the roundups:

I seriously hope the Chicago PD disobeys her because to not aid ICE in these deportations is very un-American in my opinion. This is about upholding the rule of law against those who would illegally claim asylum. If we can’t enforce these laws, then why have a border at all?

  1. Pelosi, AOC already providing tips to illegals how to avoid arrest. Unbelievable.

    Pelosi> An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant. If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by judge, a person may refuse to open the door

    AOC>No matter who you are or what your status is, this is the United States of America – where ALL people have rights. Know yours.

    News to me. I didn’t realize all people of world have constitutional protections in this country. Illegals’ status is clear. They don’t belong in this country

    1. Well to all those home owners or renters who refuse to open those doors,do not be standing directly behind the door when you say where is your warrant.

  2. This is good news but why does the media know about it………..who told them? It gives the Left like this mayor time to stop ICE.

  3. The issue isn’t the illegal immigrants. The real issue is applying and enforcing the rule of law.

    Pritzger is no stranger to evading law, simply ask him about his toilet collection. And it permeates from there.

    1. I got used to and liked the new system. The only thing I missed about disqus was the block feature which I now have back. I don’t have to even pass by the obnoxious.

        1. Hi ruthie. Yup, my blood doesn’t have to boil at some of the garbage some post.

  4. Why is this in the news again? Didn’t they delay before because of news leaks? Why is it only 2,000 when the original was 1 million. Imagine the field day the press will have with this part. “The officials, who spoke to the Times on the condition of anonymity because of the preliminary stage of the operation which is expected to take place in at least 10 cities, told the paper that the raids will occur “over multiple days,” and will include “collateral” deportations in which “authorities might detain immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even though they were not targets of the raids.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad this is going to happen, if it happens.

  5. In a way I wish the raids were not announced so they could nab the unsuspecting that may just go into hiding until it’s over. In another way announcing the raids may send some of them scampering back across the southern border or across the northern border where little Justin welcomes them with open arms.

      1. That’s why I’m not so sure that the info was leaked by the left. Self-deportation may be the admins. goal. Those that stay are hoping their sanctuary city Dems will protect them.

        1. Yeah, but it’s got to be backed up with some substantial raids, otherwise it’s useless.

  6. Heard about this when I was in Chicago earlier. Mayor Lightloafers is carrying on the progressive tradition.

  7. The worst thing that can happen is the ICE to invite the media along with their raiding party.

  8. Trump should use clever and smart words like this . The democrats don’t believe in concept of immigration and rule of law. They are Anti immigrants because they advocate for illegal entry and illegal immigration and support those that broke our laws. Immigrants believe in rule of law and came in this country legally.

  9. The law says that not only you persecute the illegal aliens . You persecute those that aide , comfort and hide illegals . The law is in Trump’s side to arrest city mayors that harbor and aide illegal foreign citizens

  10. “If we can’t enforce these laws, then why have a border at all?”

    That’s the goal of the left, no borders…no walls…no ICE…

  11. The mayor of Chicago is already saying that she won’t allow Chicago police to aid ICE in the roundups

    What’s she possibly going to do about it? Turn the cops against them? Unite the gangs?

    1. Other than courtesy to local departments ICE really has no need for help from Chicago PD. ICE gets a warrant and executes it. This is just silly virtue signalling.

  12. I’m hoping it scares the illegals into self deport and slows the influx. But it has to really happen!!

  13. I wonder what the Citizens of Chicago really think about all of this. Even the die hard Dems. Do they really support this?

  14. Trump is a puss. He announces theses things ahead of time for one reason, not to rid us of illegals but to let his base think he’s doing something while alerting everyone to block him. This is cynicism on steroids.
