Washington (AP) – In the US, it will come from this Sunday to large-scale raids against people without a residence permit.
It has long been clear that the US government is planning such arrest warrants to deport illegal immigrants in large numbers. On Friday, US President Donald Trump had publicly confirmed that these actions should start this Sunday. The focus was on people who committed crimes; he said. Trump emphasized, however, who had come illegally into the country, must go.
Trump had already threatened mass deportations in June but then postponed the deadline. At that time he spoke of “millions” of people who were to be arrested. The police authority ICE, on the other hand, stated that around 2,000 people were being targeted. We expect the deportations to take place in several major cities, including New York, Miami, and Los Angeles.
It is estimated that around 11 million people in the United States are living without residence papers. Large-scale and coordinated deportations have occurred several times in recent years, including under Democratic President Barack Obama.
