ICE raids to start this weekend

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are about to launch raids across the country to round up thousands of people.

The targets are immigrants in this country illegally. The government says all of them are subjects of deportation orders.

Our sources in Washington say the raids will begin this weekend in larger cities, but there is no official word from immigration officials.

The congressional Hispanic Caucus, lawmakers in both houses, and immigration advocates are all urging the Trump Administration to change course.

Many are now concerned the raids will target and separate families who have members that are here legally.
