Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan said he still has the "green light" to carry out deportations after President Donald Trump postponed raids scheduled for Sunday in multiple U.S. cities.
Appearing on the Fox News program Justice with Judge Jeanine on Saturday, Morgan said ICE will continue to carry out court-ordered deportations on undocumented immigrants regardless of immigration status in the time before the raids are set to begin.
"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.
Morgan said that ICE's authority to pursue these actions was not just about the total number of deportations, which has been lower than during the Obama administration.
"We need to continue to do interior enforcement against anyone who is here illegally including families because if we do that, I promise the American people, we start removing people that had final orders including families, the numbers will go down, this crisis will be positively impacted."
