    Trump says ICE raids will happen after July Fourth holiday 'unless we do something

    Trump says ICE raids will happen after July Fourth holiday 'unless we do something pretty miraculous'

    Christal Hayes, USA TODAY
    Published 5:38 p.m. ET June 29, 2019



    WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said the nationwide raids by immigration authorities that were delayed last week are planned to take place sometime after the July Fourth holiday.

    The raids planned by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in major cities across the nation were delayed after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Trump. The president announced June 22, a day before the raids were reported to begin, that he would give Congress two weeks to work on asylum laws and the flow of migrants at the southern U.S. border.


    Trump, during a news conference after the G-20 summit in Japan, said that was still the plan despite Congress being on recess this upcoming week. House Democrats have pointed to the recess — which would impede the House from passing a bill on the issue — as a reason to the delay the raids. The operation was set to take place in 10 major cities and was aimed at rounding up undocumented immigrants and deporting them, according to various media outlets, including The Washington Post.


    "Unless we do something pretty miraculous," the president said the raids would happen "sometime after July Fourth."

    "We will be removing large numbers of people," Trump said. He added the process for reforming asylum laws should be easy, though presidents for decades have struggled with such legislation.


    "We could do it quickly, we could do it in a day, we could do it in an hour," Trump said. "We could reform asylum very quickly."

    The president said tougher laws and a wall along the border could help halt this flow of migrants and prevent deaths like that of Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and his 23-month-old daughter Valeria, who drowned in the Rio Grande river in Mexico. A harrowing photo of the father and daughter face down in the river was published Tuesday by the Associated Press and renewed debate over the U.S. immigration system.


    "If they thought it was hard to get in, they wouldn't be coming up," Trump said. "So many lives would be saved."

    This week, Congress passed an emergency funding bill to help alleviate the worsening crisis at the southern border. The $4.6 billion will help fund migrant detention centers, which were nearly out of cash due to the surge of families traveling to the border, including a large number from Central America.

    The bipartisan Senate measure led to an impasse in the House and requests for added restrictions to make conditions safer for migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. It passed after a tense back-and-forth between the Senate and House and led to infighting among House Democrats. The bill now heads to Trump's desk for signature.

    Trump applauded the legislation and Pelosi, who was thrust into the middle of the debate within her party and sought to make everyone pleased with the legislation.

    "She really worked with us," Trump said.


    But Trump's timeframe wasn't enough to get both the Republican-controlled Senate and Democratic-controlled House to directly take on immigration laws this week. And due to the holiday recess, there's virtually no chance Trump's two-week deadline will be met.

    I read somewhere that by announcing it, you're actually sabotaging it, because you're giving these illegals prior notice to hide. Besides, I think he is lying again anyway. I really doubt these raids are actually going to take place. Trump sucks! And also, 2,000 is hardly a drop in the bucket. When he talks about catching and deporting 20 million of them, then we're talking about getting somewhere on this whole mess.

    Congress is off for the 4th of July .

    According to the current Congressional calendar, the Senate returns from its current recess on Monday, July 10th.

    However, the House of Representatives does not return until Tuesday, July 11th.

    BEGIN removing them from school enrollment, voter roles, welfare, food stamps, healthcare, HUD housing, IRS tax refunds, WIC, TANF, bank accounts.

    No illegal parent or guardian shall collect any benefits on behalf of a U.S. citizen, minor or otherwise! That is rewarding these criminals. Deport them with their minor children. They do not leave them here like a box of unwanted puppies.

    Deem all Drivers Licenses issued to illegal aliens NULL & VOID...it is a direct violation of our Immigration & Visa Laws to harbor, AID, and abet illegal aliens. They have NO right to be in our country let alone receive GOVERNMENT issued Drivers License!

    Sign that Executive Order to END Birthright Citizenship and get it to the Supreme Court now!

    No taxpayer funding for illegal aliens. Fund buses and ships and send them back.

    Shut down the failed refugee, asylum, TPS programs. We are not the dumping ground or ATM machine for every overbreeding poor person on the planet who has problems. They whole world has problems...we are NOT their solution.

    4th of July usually depresses me because that means there's only 2 months left of summer but maybe another 1 in Sept. ? If he actually went ahead and gave ICE the go ahead to start rounding up these SACRED ILLEGAL ALIEN FAMILIES on the 4th, I'd have something to celebrate. I might even start my overpass protests on that day? Thing is, when Trump declares something to happen on the issue of immigration, it usually means it's NOT HAPPENING. That's the problem with these articles up here stating he's talking on the 4th MAYBE? There's not going to be any deal in the next 4 days so I wonder what EXCUSE he'll have to delay them again?????
