Large-Scale Immigration Raids Fail to Materialize

MY TAKE FIRST: You DON'T TELL ALL AMERICA the WHEN and WHERE there are going to be ICE raids TWO WEEKS AHEAD OF TIME allowing all the open-borders activists time to prepare to obstruct the operation and then expect the operation to be successful:
Large-scale federal immigration raids of people illegally in the U.S. again failed to materialize Sunday after being touted in advance by President Trump, raising questions about the government’s plans.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents attempted raids in at least two neighborhoods in New York City on Saturday, according to a person familiar with the matter, a day prior to when the president had said the agency would begin national roundups of people illegally in the U.S.
In New York City, ICE agents went to residences in the Harlem section of Manhattan and Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood, the person said. The agents were rejected by people at the residences because they didn’t have warrants, according to the person. New York City officials said Sunday there was no indication that they had returned.
A spokeswoman for ICE in New York said that the agency won’t offer specific details related to enforcement operations. “As always, ICE prioritizes the arrest and removal of unlawfully present aliens who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,” the spokeswoman said.
But there was no indication those raids were part of the nationwide roundup Mr. Trump had told reporters would happen beginning Sunday. Mr. Trump had announced a similar raid last month, but it was postponed amid concerns, including over officers’ safety. Some Democratic critics of the president said he was using the threat of raids to help consolidate his political base.
