White House official: More ICE raids comingPosted: Updated:
The White House has told ICE officials to conduct dozens more workplace enforcement operations this year, according to a senior immigration official.
According the official, US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement field offices across the country have been instructed to identify at least two locations in their regions as potential targets for workplace enforcement operations.
Nearly 700 people were detained last week during a workplace enforcement operation in Mississippi.
President Donald Trump said raids like those in Mississippi will make undocumented immigrants think twice before coming in illegally. "If they come into the United States illegally, they're getting out. They're going to be brought out. And this serves as a very good deterrent."
