The US President, Donald Trump has vowed to start mass deportation next week. In a tweet has said that US immigration agents are planning to make mass arrests starting next week, an apparent reference to a plan in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of undocumented migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major US cities.
“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in,” Trump wrote, referring to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
Large-scale ICE enforcement operations are typically kept secret to avoid tipping off targets. In 2018, Trump and other senior officials threatened the mayor of Oakland, California, with criminal prosecution for alerting city residents that immigration raids were in the works. However, the president offered no specifics regarding the plan.
Trump and his senior immigration adviser, Stephen Miller, have been prodding Homeland Security officials to arrest and remove thousands of family members whose mass deportation orders were expedited by the Justice Department this year as part of a plan known as the “rocket docket.”
But government officials say ICE doesn’t have the resources and that the operation is “not imminent.”
