ICE Preparing Targeted Arrests in ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Ahead of November Election

ICE Preparing Targeted Arrests in ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Ahead of November Election

The 2020 immigration blitz will likely begin in California.

The Trump administration is preparing a massive immigration enforcement campaign in October that would target arrests in U.S. cities and jurisdictions that have adopted “sanctuary” policies.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation, known informally as the “sanctuary op,” could begin in California as soon as later this week. It would then expand to cities including Denver and Philadelphia, according to two of the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive government law enforcement plans.

Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, probably will travel to at least one of the jurisdictions where the operation will take place to boost President Trump’s claims that leaders in those cities have failed to protect residents from dangerous criminals, two officials said.

Trump has inveighed against sanctuary jurisdictions throughout his presidency, and he has expanded those attacks to include Democratic mayors in cities convulsed by racial justice demonstrations and sporadic rioting after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The immigration operation would sync with two themes of Trump’s reelection campaign: his crackdown on immigration and his push to vilify cities led by Democrats, whom he blames for crime and violence.

An ICE spokesperson emphasized that enforcement action by the agency prioritizes immigrants with criminal records.

Most arrests by ICE take place after they have been notified about an immigrant’s pending release from jails or state prisons.

“For the safety of our officers and the public, ICE does not comment on leaked operations,” they said. “… Generally speaking, as ICE has noted for years, in jurisdictions where cooperation does not exist and ICE is not allowed to assume custody of aliens from jails, ICE is forced to arrest at-large criminal aliens out in the communities instead of under the safe confines of a jail.”

Additionally, the Trump administration is considering putting up billboards of immigration violators.

The billboards would be put up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement — the enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security — in at least one city and would call attention to immigrants who have committed crimes and been released by local authorities. It’s unclear what the billboards will look like and at what cost. If the plan proceeds, it seems intended to single out sanctuary jurisdictions and stoke fear within those communities.

They shouldn’t spoil the surprise by letting it out…

Sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. Pathogens welcome.

Have the Hawaii or San Fran judges been alerted? No doubt the illegals’ activist lawyers will fly to court for an injunction.

Can’t have illegals crowded into detention facilities, doncha know? Those are there for Antifa to fire bomb.

The Democrats say every vote should count (except Republican votes). The Democrats will fight to the end to count the mail in ballots of these illegals

Start in Los Angeles. Homicides are rising:

I reference California’s Proposition 187 here from time to time. I believe with a fair vote, this same initiative would currently pass in California again at roughly 60%-40%. It is time for a comprehensive federal program of denying benefits, levying severe penalties on those who hire illegal aliens, and reduction of foriegn aid to countries who encourage/aid their citizens to come to the US illegally. The legal pathway needs to be open all the way to the SCOTUS for a rapid Constitutional ruling, since it will undoubtedly be challenged

that has to hurt the vote for Dems …

They should focus on the business owners. It’s illegal to hire illegals. Throw some business people in jail, and people will rapidly stop hiring illegals.

Note to ICE:

Don’t tell Congress diddly squat.

You’re welcome.

If government officials who break the law are arrested that would be wonderful

    That would be wonderful, but there’s no evidence that any officials are doing so.

      Tell that to DNI Ratcliffe. The last time he gave a classified briefing on foreign attempts to interfere in the 2020 election Democrats on the House intel committee immediately leaked cherry picked details to the press to make it appear Russia the worst offender (it isn’t) and that once again Putin is trying to get Trump in office (wasn’t true in 2016 and still not true today).

      So egregious were the Democrats’ violations of the Espionage Act that he will now be communicating with members of Congress via written briefings. They will be numbered and the briefings will be slightly different, with details in one that aren’t in the other.

      By limiting the universe of Congresscritters who get briefed and by identifying each one individually the DNI can limit the scope of the criminal investigation and more easily catch and prosecute the guilty party.

How about allowing illegals to exit with their assets if they do so on their own, but to seize all assets if they have to be run down?

And we still need to put an end to the anchor baby scam, retroactive back twenty years.

    That would be even more illegal than illegal immigration. And worse, because it would be the government breaking the law.

      Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | October 6, 2020 at 9:12 am

      No, it wouldn’t be illegal, Milhouse. Once again your hubris drives you to engage keyboard before you engage brain.

      If we declared an amnesty and allowed illegal aliens to depart with no repercussions whatsoever then they could leave with all they have.

      The federal government has declared a variety of amnesties in the past and an amnesty as I’ve suggested above would be perfectly legal and in accordance with past precedent. Here’s just one example of a federal amnesty:

      On the other hand if we declared that illegal aliens who don’t depart voluntarily, forcing us to go through the time and money consuming process of tracking them down and going through court proceedings (no doubt criminal court as well as immigration court proceedings since it’s impossible to live here illegally and not violate other laws) we face increasing penalties, fines, and administrative fees.

      Those are a form of asset forfeiture. They’d have to pay. And it’s all perfectly legal; this country penalizes criminals financially regardless of citizenship status.

      To deny the above is to deny reality. I wanted to comment early, Milhouse, so you’d have all day to work on that project.

Is there a place we can request that they come to our town?

Oooo that’s gonna make some Democrats SO MAD …!

Please tell me that picture in the article is photoshopped.

    No, someone actually put that sign up. Of course it was taken down as soon as the authorities learned of it, but it was genuinely up for a short time.

I was talking to my sister in Kali earlier and I heard a cacophony of shrieks of, “It burns! It burns like acid!”

At first I thought it was an apocalyptic battle; people killing vampires by pressing crucifixes against their foreheads.

She corrected me. It was just the leftists at Oakland city hall reacting to news of these ICE raids.
