A major policing operation planned for Melbourne's CBD this weekend has been cancelled after a backlash over plans to include Australian Border Force (ABF) officials in the crackdown. [...]
Earlier, the ABF had said it would be checking people's visas on the streets of the city centre as part of the operation, which also involved Victoria Police and other agencies.
The original announcement quoted ABF regional commander for Victoria and Tasmania Don Smith as saying officers would be positioned at various locations around the city and would speak "with any individual we cross paths with". [...]
The statement about the operation's cancellation was then issued.
"Victoria Police has made a decision not to go ahead with this weekend's Operation Fortitude," it said.
"We understand there has been a high level of community interest and concern which has been taken into consideration when making this decision.

I hope Trump wins, and does, have every illegal thrown out on their ear, then begins mandatory minimum 10 year now parole at hard labor sentences for reentry.
You get one chance, we throw you out, you come back illegally, you suffer the consequences.
You guys are all insane.
The West is going to fall because we see being inundated with illegal immigrants.
This is an attempt to do something about it.
But I guess once they all want to leave because our countries are more broke than north Korea, you guys will be happy.
