Trump says ICE will deport illegal immigrants who have already been ordered to leave the United States
President Donald Trump has said that immigration and customs enforcement will be aimed at those who have already been heard by a court and have been ordered to be deported in raids starting on Sunday at sunrise.
& # 39; These are people who entered the country illegally – they were served and went through a lawsuit. They must be removed from the country and they will be removed from the country, & T 39 told reporters in the south of the White House on Saturday while they were leaving for Camp David.
& # 39; Anyone who has entered the country illegally is evicted from the country very legally & # 39 ;, he continued.
& # 39; Some cities will fight against it, but if you notice that they are generally high crime cities. If you look at Chicago … many of those cities are sanctuary cities and they are cities with a lot of crime, & said Trump, referring to the vows of various democratic mayors to fight the enforcement action.

Trump said the enforcement action & # 39; would have a very big effect on the border & # 39; and further illegal immigration.
Earlier on Saturday morning he tweeted: & The people who will arrest Ice have already been ordered to be deported. This means that they ran away from the law and ran away from the court. & # 39;
& # 39; These are people who are supposed to return to their home country. They've broken the law by coming to the land, and now by staying, & he wrote.
& # 39; When people enter our country illegally, they will be TRANSPORTED! & # 39; Trump went on.
Cities targeted by the robbery include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Houston – all democratically governed and many of those local law enforcement forbid ICE.
In a call with reporters earlier this week, Mark Morgan, the acting director of the ICE, said the agency would focus on deportation families who have received a removal order from an American immigration bank.
The campaign targets 2,040 families, sources say. The other affected cities are Miami, Baltimore, Atlanta, Denver and New Orleans.
The expected sweep is expected to be comparable to operations that the authorities have carried out regularly since 2003. They often produce hundreds of arrests.
This is different because Trump announced on Twitter on Monday that it would be the start of an attempt to illegally evict millions of people, an almost impossible impossibility given ICE's limited resources, who are conducting the arrests and carrying out deportation orders.
It is also somewhat unusual to target families – as opposed to immigrants with criminal history – but not unprecedented. The governments of Obama and Trump have targeted families in previous operations.

Many of the mayors of the democrat-controlled cities in line for enforcement operations have vowed to make every effort to prevent federal immigration enforcement.
In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is looking for the Democratic presidential election, tweeted his opposition to the enforcement action and called it & # 39; a morbid plan to tear families apart and force immigrants into the shadows & # 39; .
New York governor Andrew Cuomo thundered in a statement that the plans of Trump & # 39; shameful and totally unacceptable & # 39; goods.
& # 39; We will fight again and again to protect our immigrant families & # 39 ;, swore Cuomo. & # 39; New York remains the beacon of inclusion and diversity that the country and the world are looking for. & # 39;
The mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, said she had terminated ICE & # 39; s access to the Chicago Police Department (CPD) databases regarding federal immigration enforcement activities in response to the threat of robberies.
& # 39; I also spoke personally with the ICE leadership in Chicago and expressed my strong opposition to such robberies. I also reiterated that CPD will not cooperate with or facilitate ICE enforcement actions, & # 39; said Lightfoot in a statement.

The Los Angeles police said in a series of tweets that it would not participate or assist in the enforcement of immigration.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti in a statement called the enforcement efforts & # 39; inhumane, shameful and dangerous & # 39 ;, adding & # we will not stand in Los Angeles. & # 39;
The mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, noted in a statement the & # 39; rich cultural contributions & # 39; of the city's immigrants and said: & # 39; The city is not trying to do the work of ICE, nor is it trying to obstruct the ICE. & # 39;
The number of detained migrants who crossed the US-Mexico border rose to the highest level since 2006 in May.
Most migrants come from Central America and are looking for asylum, a process that can take years.
Many families are released in the United States during the trial because of the limitations of how long children can be held.
Last fiscal year, the ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations Unit illegally arrested more than 158,500 people in the country, an increase of 11 percent over the previous year and the highest number since 2014. The agency says 66 percent of those arrested are convicted criminals .
Last month, ICE officers arrested 900 people during a three-week stab in California.
