Mass immigration roundups in U.S. to start Sunday - New York Times
 
July 11 (Reuters) - Roundups of undocumented immigrant families will start Sunday in 10 U.S. cities, fulfilling a hardline immigration stance from U.S. President Donald Trump which will be a key issue in his 2020 re-election bid, the New York Times reported.

The raids will be conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents over a number of days starting July 14, the Times reported citing unnamed sources including two current and one former homeland security officials.

Reuters could not independently confirm the pending government action early on Thursday.

The officials told the Times that ICE agents were targeting at least 2,000 immigrants who have been ordered deported but remain in the country illegally.

Trump said on July 5 that the mass roundups would begin "fairly soon," even as migrant advocates vowed their communities would be "ready" when immigration officers come.

He postponed the operation last month after the date was leaked, but last week said it would take place after July 4.

"They'll be starting fairly soon, but I don't call them raids, we're removing people, all of these people who have come in over the years illegally," Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday.

Last month ICE officials said operations would target recently-arrived undocumented migrants in a bid to discourage a surge of Central American families at the southwest border.

ICE said in a previous statement its focus was arresting people with criminal histories but any immigrant found in violation of U.S. laws was subject to arrest.

The threatened raids have rattled immigrant communities and come after apprehensions of migrants on the southwest border hit a 13-year high in May before easing in June as Mexico increased immigration enforcement.

Democratic lawmakers visited an El Paso, Texas, Border Patrol station on Monday and said migrants were being held in "horrifying" conditions, with women told to drink out of a toilet, a claim that has been disputed.

Immigrant families arrested together will be held together, when possible, in family detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania, the officials told the Times.

But because of space limitations, some might stay in hotel rooms until travel is arranged. (Reporting by Rich McKay in Atlanta; Editing by Toby Chopra)

I have family members who are undocumented and possibly have removal orders. I worry for them a lot but there’s not much I can do. My only option is to have a plan in place just in case. If you are going through the same I suggest you also make a plan. At the end of the day, no matter where you physically are, you have a life to live. Good luck.

To me it sounds like show business as usual. No different from what Obama was doing but secretly.

That is ignorant. If you can't tell the difference, and you're part of the Dreamer community then I don't know how to convince you. Sure under Obama there were also collateral arrests but there were priorities set up. There is no difference now between a gang member arrested for assault and robbery and a parent, or a dreamer.

If you or your family has removal orders, make sure that they don't open the door if they don't expect anyone.

All good. Remember Venezuela said few years back that they will take Dreamers in!

why did the number go from a million to in the 2 thousand’s? I heard they were targeting a million immigrants last month. Are they only starting with 2,000?

From what I understand, it's 2k on that day. No one knows how long it'll go for.
