Sunday was supposed to be an ICE day of reckoning, but local officials say ‘not so fast’

The ‘resistance’ to Donald Trump’s immigration policies have handed ICE a bureaucratic nightmare for Sunday’s action.

President Donald Trump’s hard stance on immigration was supposed to be on full display this Sunday, with officers from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement conducting a series of raids simultaneously in cities across the country.

Instead, it looks as though ICE officers might be in for a bureaucratic nightmare.

Federal immigration agents shouldn’t expect cooperation from local authorities when they begin a mass roundup of migrant families with deportation orders, an operation slated to begin Sunday at the direction of President Trump.

Several elected officials in cities expected to be targeted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have either condemned the impending arrests or said they won’t allow local resources to be used to assist the federal agents.

The raid was planned to be one of the largest in the agency’s history.

The operation is expected to target 2,000 families in up to 10 cities, including Chicago, Baltimore, New York, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami. On Monday, Trump announced via Twitter that ICE would be “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the U.S.”

Several cities around the nation have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” in the wake of Donald Trump’s push to enforce the nation’s immigration laws.  This maneuver has drawn criticism from groups such as the “Angel Moms”, who advocate for stronger immigration control in the wake of the deaths of their children at the hands of undocumented migrants.
