YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS CRAP UP: Outraged illegal aliens demand ICE announce their raids in advance

I only wish this was a headline I stole from The Onion. Sadly, it’s an actual news story coming to us from Baltimore.
Earlier this month the Department of Homeland Security had planned a wide ranging operation where they were going to be pursuing more than 8,000 illegal aliens in locations across the country. Dubbed “Operation Mega” by ICE, the operation was postponed, supposedly due to the arrival of hurricanes Harvey and Irma (more on that below), but a memo describing the plan wound up being leaked to the media. This set of waves of anger in the illegal alien community, particularly in Baltimore, Maryland. Activists supporting the illegals and opposed to border security were quick to take the agency to task, demanding that ICE reveal all of their plans and let them know if there were raids coming.

Days after Homeland Security cancels “Operation Mega,” a nationwide crackdown and round up of undocumented immigrants, some are worried it’s only a matter of time before they’re booted out of the country.
Immigrants rights advocates from across Maryland took their frustration and fear to the streets Tuesday at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office in Baltimore.
“We’re demanding that ICE show us our papers as community members and really document that they’re not going to be doing these violations against our community,” said CASA lead regional organizer Lydia Walther-Rodriguez.
The group is demanding that ICE be transparent about any policy changes that impact the immigrant community. They also want to know if any mass deportations are on the horizon.
