Trump Confirms Immigration Raids Set For The Weekend

At the same time, administration officials - and the president himself - have made clear that the raids are imminent, and several media outlets have reported the raids are scheduled to start Sunday.

The raid will be carried out in at least 10 cities.

Still, undocumented immigrants like Lupe Lopez of Fort Morgan are concerned. And how are city officials responding? These have been amplified by Democratic lawmakers like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose tweet urging to "Check your neighbors & know your rights". Such a massive round-up would usually be kept under wraps to avoid alerting those who will be targeted.

Some advocacy groups called the upcoming immigration raid a "political stunt".

FOX4's Sherae Honeycutt spoke with those working with the undocumented community ahead of a possible new round of ICE raids.

With a goal of deporting those arrested "as quickly as possible", in the Times' words, family members arrested together will be held in detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania, as well as hotel rooms.

After being detained, how long will it take for deportations to begin?

A coalition of Senate Democrats led by Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer introduced a bill on Thursday that would end the practice of family separations and would create a set of health and safety standards to ensure the well-being of migrants in detention centers.

Lightfoot has also instructed the Police Department to not cooperate with ICE in immigration raids. Thus far, the mayor has not signed it. The advisory includes a "Your Rights with Law Enforcement" booklet stating that migrants have the legal right to have a lawyer represent them, and do not have to let officials into their homes if they do not present a warrant.

Lopez-McCarthy said parents should think about the short-term guardianship of their children.

Laura Mendoza, with Resurrection Project, said it's great to hear that local leaders are taking action. Plus, details had leaked, and authorities anxious about the safety of ICE officers.

"If the USA government is willing to do something like we just heard, send DHS agents to the home of a former employee of theirs who refused to lie and intimidate him while one of the mainstream networks is there interviewing him, can we begin to imagine what is going on when agents show up unannounced to the homes of low-wage, undocumented worker families?"

"We don't want to take any risks", said Torres, who was previously undocumented for seven years. We have the right to remain silent.

He said even though he is unaware of any New Jersey communities that will be targeted by these raids over the weekend, ICE has conducted unannounced raids throughout the state before.

But Trump has had few qualms about publicizing similar ICE raids over the last month.

But the president, speaking to reporters at the White House on Friday, said he did not share those concerns, as the deportations were not a secret.
