U.S. plans raids to deport families who surged across border


From the article:

The ICE operation would target only adults and children who have already been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge, according to officials familiar with the undertaking, who spoke on condition of anonymity because planning is ongoing and the operation has not been given final approval by DHS. The adults and children would be detained wherever they can be found and immediately deported. The number targeted is expected to be in the hundreds and possibly greater.

------------------------------

I can't help but be cynical about the timing of this. It seems to be an attempt by the democrats to try and show voters that they are doing something about this problem. After all, Trump and Cruz have been talking about deporting illegals and getting positive responses from voters.

I don't trust the democrats when it comes to this issue. After all, they are the ones pushing the hardest for amnesty and sanctuary cities. Plus they don't want to secure the border. I hope that voters will keep this in mind.

Def weird since the Dems wanna keep illegals in the US. Tho maybe things are fixing to change, especially with all the stuff happening in Europe with "refugees".

Obama and the DOJ will find a way to lie about the numbers and process to make themselves look good without actually doing something/anything. It is what they do.

That's true. But, I still think it is good news. It is better than talking about amnesty which brings in thousands more in addition to the thousands coming in each month illegally. I'll take what I can get to tide us over until we just do it.

Just like the DOD meeting and ramp up against ISIS. They were always "planned for some time" despite the political timing. A mere coincidence.

That being said, I support this.

"....“I’ll believe it when I see it,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “What share is this going to be?. . . It’s a drop in the bucket compared to the number they’ve admitted into the country. If you have photogenic raids on a few dozen illegal families and that’s the end of it, it’s just for show. It’s just a [public relations] thing, enforcement theater.”.... "


Although, it maybe good news, I agree with the above one hundred percent. More then likely, it's all a show. However, if there were TRULY serious about deporting them, they should regroup everyone that is at the detention center and drive them back waaay south of the border and the Fed Gov't, especially THIS administration, needs STOP AIDING them here. The Feds know human trafficking is a crime so they should stop doing it. Also, take all the incentives away.

Just a ploy to make this administration look like they are actually doing the right thing but you can bet the traitor and his administration is just trying to cover his own butt but we all know once a traitor always a traitor and once a liar, always a liar. The worst and anti-American POTUS in my lifetime for sure.

Just saw a news story stating that in fact the Obama administration has deported the fewest illegals in the last 10 years. I believe, but don't have the actual article to post, that it was in Newsmax.

It's interesting that both sides are talking about it but as we've seen in the past both sides have refused to do anything about it. We need to secure our borders ASAP and that's where we should be spending our resources.

I'm less concerned about the timing and more concerned about the fact that this plan was leaked to the press by those within the administration. It would seem to me that if you were actually serious about deporting these families then you wouldn't give them advance notice of the deportation via leaking news of the operation to the press.
