planned ICE raids for two weeks

President Donald Trump says he is delaying a nationwide sweep to deport people living in the U.S. illegally. He said in a tweet Saturday he would delay for two weeks to give lawmakers time to discuss border solutions. Three administration officials told The Associated Press the operation had been canceled because details had leaked in the media and officer safety could be jeopardized. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly on the operation and spoke on condition of anonymity. The operation was expected to begin Sunday and would have targeted people with final orders of removal, including families

Comments:

So those leaks were not unauthorized. Sounds as though Homan’s belief that ICE officers would be in danger was compelling...

FTA: At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2019 Back in the Democrats and Republicans congresspersons' laps… For two weeks.

Trump will announce that he’s appointed Prosecutor Huber to lead this effort. Huber selected because he knows where to hide in Utah yet still receive his paychecks. Trump risks becoming George H W Read My Lips Bush. Trump is releasing 1,000+ illegals a day but wants us to believe that deporting 120 will make a difference.

The cities have no authority to interfere with federal law enforcement officers when the are serving federal arrest warrants relating to final orders of deportation issued by federal judges. Any local officials who obstruct those federal officers could be arrested by US Marshals with their cases heard in the federal district courts charged with assaulting or obstructing federal officers and federal law enforcement operations. Very few local police officers, most of who actually support ICE, would want to risk their careers and freedom by attaining such federal convictions.

I agree Trump should go ahead with the Deportation plan tomorrow. Just do it in different cities than were announced! I don't blame Homan for being so upset about the Leaks. He seems to be the only person at DHS who knows what the heck he's doing! He stated he knew who the Leaker is, so I hope the person is fired. Time to get tough with people who are supposed to be on our side and wind up Leaking!

Poster #13, it's because dems are bolder at disobeying laws that they disagree with than Pubs are at disobeying illegal declarations by dem presidents. Dems issue illegal edicts, and Pubs comply. Anyone bold enough not to comply, gets prosecuted or otherwise punished. Pubs pass Constitutional laws, and dems simply disobey. And, nobody ever gets prosecuted on their side.

WASHINGTON — On Thursday evening, U.S. Cyber Command launched a retaliatory digital strike against an Iranian spy group that supported last week’s limpet mine attacks on commercial ships, according to two former intelligence officials. The group, which has ties to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, has over the past several years digitally tracked and targeted military and civilian ships passing through the economically important Strait of Hormuz, through which pass 17.4 million barrels of oil per day. Those capabilities, which have advanced over time, enabled attacks on vessels in the region for several years.

Remember Charles Reich? Probably not. But you probably do know the phrase “the greening of America.” It is Reich’s coinage, the title his fruity 1970 bestseller that began life as a 39,000-word essay in The New Yorker. I hadn’t thought about Reich for years. When the news came a few days ago that he had died, age 91, I was surprised to hear that he still had been with us. Fatuousness must have a life-extending effect. Of all the silly pseudo-sages of the 1960s counterculture, Reich was surely one of the silliest. No single figure or theme captures the totality of the countercultural revolt of the period. But few figures better embody

She is lying. She was not raped. She was not attacked. She was not accosted. We know this because she has been silent for 23 years about it -- including four years ago when she could have made this claim and stopped his election. That she did not claim it four years ago is proof enough that this is political sabotage. Four years ago, in the summer of 2015, this woman and her ilk thought the nomination of Donald John Trump would seal the deal for a Hillary presidency. Now she is desperate to stop his re-election.

Oh boy, this is interesting.

Suffice to day, after this interview Tom Homan and Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan will likely never work together. It would appear if President Trump wants Homan as border czar, he’s going to have to fire McAleenan…. or change something.

Carroll, who was 52 years old at the time of the alleged assault, makes this allegation in a book she has just published.
