Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami are among cities anticipating raids; orders include detention and deportations, administration officials say
Immigration and Customs Enforcement will launch an effort to round up thousands of undocumented migrants across the country on Sunday as part of the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration, according to three administration officials.
Details of this weekend’s operations remain unknown, but the officials said that the orders include detention and deportations. One of the officials said ICE has been ordered to go after people “who received a final order of deportation from an immigration judge after they were released from custody.”
The enforcement, which is expected to last several days, would include “collateral” deportations, according to one official.
A White House official wouldn’t confirm that the raids would take place but said that there are “serious consequences” for the “one million people who have received final deportation orders” but have remained in the U.S. illegally.
ICE didn’t respond to a request for comment.
The operation had been scheduled to begin last month but President Trump announced a two-week delay during his recent trip to Camp David after the order prompted concerns within the Department of Homeland Security.
On Wednesday, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said the plans would go forward. “They’re absolutely going to happen,” he told reporters at the White House.
