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 alien parents and children in an 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. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
Those targeted are the ones who failed to appear at their hearings in immigration court and were issued orders of removal. While that may be the targeted group, anyone who is not in lawful status, or has a pending immigration court hearing is subject to an immigration arrest.
