ICE to Start Raids on Sunday

Headline Roundup July 12th, 2019

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will be conducting sweeps to locate immigrants without legal status on Sunday. The raids will target roughly 2,000 families with outstanding deportation notices across 10 major cities.

Some on the left dismissed the raids as a political statement. Right-leaning outlets focused on the fact that while there are roughly a million undocumented people with outstanding removal orders, only individuals with criminal histories will be targeted this weekend. Some on the right argued that the fact that raids were announced in advance may be President Trump's way of trying to bargain with Democrats.

"I felt that day like it was a hurricane coming," the undocumented immigrant from Nicaragua told CNN.

Since then, the raids Trump threatened haven't happened. But for millions of undocumented immigrants living across the United States, the storm is still brewing.

From the Right

Starting Sunday, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to resume its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants across the country.

The reinvigorated effort comes just weeks after President Trump tweeted that ICE was preparing to kick off days of raids in at least 10 major cities.

Trump said his administration would relaunch the raids after a two-week window – after the...
