No American citizen can get away with breaking the law or violating a court order - and neither should illegal aliens.
US President Donald Trump abruptly suspended his wide-ranging threat to deport "millions" of undocumented immigrants starting Sunday, demanding that Democrats and Republicans forge a plan to stanch the record flows of asylum-seeking families across the southern border into the United States.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo on ABC said rounding up immigrants "stokes fear and panic" in the community.
"This means that they have run from the law and run from the courts", Trump said.
The president was under pressure from Democrats to call off the roundup, which was expected to target families in up to 10 US cities on Sunday.
On June 18, the day after the president announced the upcoming deportations, a press release from Speaker Pelosi referred to the plan as "an act of utter malice and bigotry". "In last 10 days, Mexico has done more to secure our southern border than Democrats in Congress have done in the last 10 years, and that has to change", he said on CNN's "State of the Union". The number of people crossing the U.S. -Mexico border has risen dramatically under Trump, despite his tough rhetoric and hardline policies.Читайте также: Trump says 'did not send that message' to Tehran warning of attack
A senior Democratic aide says Trump is "trying to create leverage in a situation where he has none", adding "it won't work".
"I think just hearing that something is going to be stepped up puts everyone on alert", she said.
Trump warned that if no compromise is reached, "Deportations start!" These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country.
Despite Trump's extension, Lightfoot said she isn't optimistic anything will get done in two weeks.
His abrupt reversal did little to relieve or reassure immigrants and their supporters. "I would hope he would apply that same value to avoiding the collateral damage to tens of thousands of children who are frightened by his actions", she said in the statement, in which she called the raids "heartless".
"Due to law-enforcement sensitivities and the safety and security of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel, the agency will not offer specific details related to ongoing enforcement operations before the conclusion of those actions", ICE said in a statement Friday. Both Chicago and Los Angeles mayors said their cities would not assist in the raids. Miami is said to be one of the cities targeted in ICE's upcoming raid, but Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R, signed a bill last week that prohibits sanctuary cities in the state, and mandates that local officials must cooperate with federal immigration forces.
When Trump first announced news of the deportations, Maribel Cisneros wasn't sure how seriously to take him.
Another rider allegedly includes language that would require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will be delivered to them without any reservation.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
