    ICE officials said late Monday night that they were not aware that the president planned to divulge their enforcement plans on Twitter.
    Large-scale ICE enforcement operations are typically kept secret to avoid tipping off targets.


    Sure, but you're not a grandmaster of 17th dimensional chess.

    President Trump said in a tweet Monday night that U.S. immigration agents are planning to make mass arrests starting “next week,” an apparent reference to a plan in preparation for months that aims to round up thousands of migrant parents and children in a blitz operation across major U.S. cities.

    “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump wrote, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Well, I guess this gives millions of illegals enough time to pack and illegally cross back into Mexico to avoid being arrested. Pretty kind of Trump to give them this advanced warning.

    Hmmm. The action was not imminent. So, while no doubt a raid will come, It sounds more like Trump is just trying to scare people.
    People who, as the article says, "are hoping to live and work in the US as long as possible".

    What unbelievably rotten human beings! Hoping to live and work somewhere!

    So much for the element of surprise.

    Ironically, the ancestors of the Mexicans used to roam feely in the American continent.

    The ancestors of European descent Americans stole the lands from them.

    Something Americans should know before looking down on Latin "Illegal Immigrants". Unless they can justify that stealing lands is ordained by God.

    Who really are the Illegal Immigrants in the eyes of God?

    I don't really think nationality means anything at all to The almighty creator. I'm more inclined to think that He would want us to have a welcoming and gracious heart to everyone, including outsider.

    The Samaritan and all that...

    So why are you saying nasty things to what your country views as "Illegal Immigrants"?

    It was hyperbole in reference to the anger or indifference directed at them.

    “The Oakland mayor’s decision to publicize her suspicions about ICE operations further increased that risk for my officers and alerted criminal aliens — making clear that this reckless decision was based on her political agenda with the very federal laws that ICE is sworn to uphold,” then-ICE Deputy Director Thomas D. Homan said at the time.

    And Trump wants the now retired Homan to be his “immigration czar”...after the President tipped off the country.

    He might pass on the czarship?

    Well, we still have fear, ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical devotion to the pope.

    He always says things like that, bragging what great things he has done or will do. I only believe things like this when I see them.
    I live in a little Mexico area in AZ. at least they think it is. I am the only white for blocks and they are as arrogant as always. They are coming in, not leaving. Maybe it is that they don't understand English and so they are oblivious. Most here don't speak any English or understand it..

    Yeah, Benjamin Franklin had the same complaints about the Germans immigrating into Pennsylvania “not speaking the King’s English!”, too and they turned out “okay”.
    So...

    ICE has always did these raids. Nothing really new. Except a president wants a pat on the back. Or trying to get another 4 years.
    Or go some where else in America.
