New reports that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are planning to begin the mass raids that were previously postponed this Sunday.
Their target: 2,000 undocumented immigrants in 10 cities.
A number of current and former Homeland Security officials were cited in various media reports as saying that the multiple raids will be conducted over a number of days, and will focus on immigrants who have court orders for deportation.
But they admitted that there could be collateral deportations during the operations — meaning, immigrants who happened to be on the scene, even though they were not target of the raids, could still be arrested.
The raids were originally scheduled in late June in cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
But President Donald Trump delayed them — hoping that Democrats and Republicans would agree on a solution to the border crisis.
