Immigration raids in 6 States: Trump's Order to Deport Illegal Immigrants

Immigration raids in at least six states following Donald Trump's order to deport illegal immigrants
www.independent.co.uk...



From coming soon to it has already been happening before the news got out about signing the order to go after the illegal immigrants, especially those who have criminal records.

Obey the Law!


Authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented migrants in the first large-scale enforcement of Mr Trump’s executive order to take action against the estimated 11 million people living illegally in the US.

Raids took place this week in and around New York, Los Angeles, North Carolina, South Carolina, Atlanta and Chicago, immigration officials confirmed – with more than a third of those detained in the Los Angeles area being deported to Mexico.

Officials said the raids targeted known criminals but reports from immigrant rights groups claim that law-abiding citizens were also targeted in a departure from Obama-era crackdowns which focused solely on law-breaking illegal “aliens”.

Mr Trump has pledged to deport as many as three million illegal immigrants, substantially broadening the remit of the Department of Homeland Security to include those with minor convictions as well as those known to have committed serious crimes.

“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation – that is what it means to have laws and to have a country,” Mr Trump said in Phoenix, Arizona, last August. “We’re talking about people who are threats to public safety or a threat to the integrity of the immigration system.”

“These are agents going into apartment buildings or agents going to work sites,” said Ms. Volpe, who had a client arrested, along with five others, at a construction site in Washington last week. “This is new.”


Once again DJT keeps his promise on going forward with the plan of restoring law and order in the US, something that Obama admin had failed to do. The goal, I am sure, is to inherently reduce crime, death, violence, and other rates. Even though Obama allowed amnesty for millions of immigrants (illegal or undocumented), Trump is overturning that amnesty in line with those people who did not abide by the law when entering US.

I agree that where you live you should feel safe. And if you have ever been fearful of gangs, violence and hate from illegals, then you can be assured these people will be exported out quickly throughout 2017.

Well, this will insure that only more honest and less trouble causing immigrants are allowed in the country. That will be good for businesses and neighborhoods. Now can we somehow deport all of our white criminals too? Especially the ones way up in our government?

Note the reminder its the "police" on everyones back, not the Gestapo. Its "immigration", not mass round ups.

No sane person could think that deporting criminals is not a good thing for a country.

This reminds me of France during WW2. The rounding-up of the Jews began with the non-citizens.

Have we begun our own "rafle"?

What's disturbing is that the previous administration didn't take actions to deport murderers and criminals that were here illegally.

I'd have to question the motivation of any ideology that would encourage murderers and criminals to live freely in our society.

We don't need death camps, we have B52's.

You ask me this is a show of force, designed to fulfill a campaign promise and give notice to those south of the border.

They haven't the manpower or the facilities to handle numbers of undocumented workers at all the large corporations, anyway. Nor will it be allowed by the oligarchy.

Further: Millions of americans languish in prison already, some are incarcerated for menial crimes, others detained without charge or a 'quick and speedy trial' date, even.

This could even be no more than a media distraction from Trumps 'Muslim ban' travesty.

Why not just round up all the 'non immigrant' criminals and throw them out as well?

I have seen this before in history. it's a bit fuzzy, there's a movie about it as well, by Spielberg, about some sort of minority in a country run by a hard core nationalist who was voted in democratically and replaced all existing politicians with his own.

Damn it's on the tip of my tongue...

Can someone remind me of this period in history and the dudes name?

Hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?

Let's start with the non-citizens.

I can agree. I don't think this will become widespread, but sometimes it's the principle of the matter.

Yah, don't want to rock the boat too much.

it`s like we`ve gone back in time to a time when the laws were actually enforced, of course the criminals won`t like this but us law abiding citizens can finally breath a sigh of relief.

Read my post again. I was referring to the initial round-ups in France that were directed at non-citizens.

If you are going to compare arresting criminals to rounding up jews. . .

Then a person either thinks that being jewish is criminal and worthy of punishment

or

The person thinks that murderers and rapists should be free to live in our society.

Either way, it is disturbing.

If you are not already aware I am not a fan of Trump, however, I think the only reason this is getting so much play is because Trump is now President. People are overlooking the fact that Obama deported more people than any President and sent close to 500,000 packing in one year alone.

The Nazi party started off as a 'socialist' platform to gain votes, promising jobs and economic growth after a harsh time when the world $%#@ on them after WW1.
When they got into power it quickly went from a slight liberal party to extremely alt right blaming immigrants and criminals of all classes for stealing jobs, mainly the Jews.

It started with the criminals, 'corrupt' politicians and the illegals.

I doubt it will get to a point where they start rounding up all sorts of legal people, but it's happened before.

It's just a little fishy how it's all come sort of full circle back to something we as human beings tried to avoid so much, blaming and finger pointing and hate mongering.

True, but what stat isn't reported is of those who were deported how many came back over the border again.
