Donald Trump continues to run his politics on trying to stamp out migrants from coming to America….
That is on a illegal immigration AND legal immigration….
We have detention camps that are inhuman….
Trump’s plan for purges will only make things worst…
Donald Trump doesn’t give a shit…..
Immigration is a dirty word in his world….
President Trump said his administration will move forward “fairly soon” with a plan to arrest thousands of migrant families in surprise roundups across major U.S. cities, with the two-week deadline he imposed on Democrats coming up on Saturday.
Trump tipped off the mass arrests in a June 17 tweet, vowing “millions” of deportations, but called them off five days later. The president tweeted that he delayed the raids for two weeks at Democrats’ request, “to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border.”
“If not,” he wrote , “Deportations start!”

In addition to many lawmakers being out of town and the deadline for congressional action expiring this weekend, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is in transition: Many supervisors and agents have been on vacation for the July 4 holiday, and the current acting head, Mark Morgan, is leaving to start a new job Monday as the acting chief of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Carol Danko, a spokesperson for ICE, declined to discuss the agency’s plans.
“ICE does not comment on sensitive law enforcement operations,” she said.
The president did exactly that, though, in his June 17 tweet advertising mass arrests he said would start the following week. Operational details of the plan began leaking out and circulating on Capitol Hill soon after.
White House aides and Homeland Security officials were frustrated that the president put ICE’s plans on Twitter, prompting concerns that the operation’s blown cover diminished its chances for success and jeopardized the safety of federal agents. Administration officials said it was the uproar that followed — not a potential deal with House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) — that led to the operation’s delay….
