How much warning can President Trump give them?
And how many olive branches can he offer the DemocRats to make a deal and fix the border?
It doesn’t matter, it will never be enough.
And it looks like Trump’s graciousness and patience has worn out, because multiple reports out today say ICE Raids are starting on Sunday.
And not only that, but a report out of Florida says the ICE Units have already rolled into town and are ready to go!
From Florida's local NBC affiliate WFLA:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers have reportedly arrived in Florida ahead of raids scheduled this week by the Trump administration, Telemundo 51 reported.
The report, which cites law enforcement sources, claims ICE agents left Miami early Friday morning and are now in Immokalee, preparing for the first phase of raids this weekend.
The agency plans to arrest 2,000 immigrants, mostly families, with deportation orders that have remained in the country illegally, the news station reported.
Acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli said Wednesday the raids are quote “Absolutely going to happen,” though, he declined to say when.
Officials say authorities will try not to split up detained families, according to the New York Times.
LaCorte News had even more to report:
Many immigrants living in the country illegally are avoiding work, staying at home, or altogether hiding following reports that President Trump's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could start deporting undocumented citizens as early as Sunday, KTLA reported.
The story: "I said, 'OK, you know what, we're going to keep the windows down, the blinds down. I don't want any noise. I want everybody to stay calm and try to turn off the lights in the living room, so if they come, they don't know that we are in the house.' I know my rights. I know that I don't have to open the door. I know a lot of things, but even with that it's really scary," a 41-year-old illegal immigrant from Nicaragua who works as a housekeeper and babysitter told CNN.
The woman told her story under the condition of anonymity and was only identified under the pseudonym Elena.
Elena had come to the United States over 20 years ago but said her visa has expired and was denied asylum.
"This is a horrible feeling," she said Thursday. "These past two days, I've been waking up in the middle of the night. My husband says, 'What happened to you last night? You started screaming in your dream.'"
Élfido García, an illegal migrant from Guatemala who works as a farmer, said he is aware faces the risk of being arrested while going to work.
"Yes, I'm taking the risk," he said, "but just to fight for my family."
He said he leaves home only when he has to go to work.
Farm owner Gustavo Serna said he was struggling to find workers to harvest crops as many are illegals and are afraid to leave their homes.
"Because of the lack of workers, many times people are losing up to 50% of their harvest," he said.
One undocumented farmer from Minnesota told CNN that illegals there were also apprehensive and said he will stay at home for the weekend until he is sure there are no ICE agents around.
"I don't want to leave my family devastated," he said, "so we are just going to stay inside."
Melissa Taveras, a spokeswoman for the Florida Immigrant Coalition, said: "We got a call from a mom who said that her little girl wasn't feeling well and she was afraid to go to the doctor. She was trying to figure out how to make it there."
"We keep getting calls and messages from folks, saying, 'We're scared. What should we do?'" Taveras said. "I've seen those sorts of messages and calls more than usual, which really worries me, because those are people that are preparing in fear."
