US immigration officials planning 30-day ‘surge’ of arrests to deport families

US immigration officials are planning a month-long series of raids in May and June to deport hundreds of Central American mothers and children found to have entered the country illegally, according to sources and an internal document seen by Reuters.

The operation would likely be the largest deportation sweep targeting immigrant families by the administration of Barack Obama this year after a similar drive over two days in January that focused on Georgia, Texas and North Carolina.

Those raids, which resulted in the detention of 121 people, mostly women and children, sparked an outcry from immigration advocates and criticism from some Democrats, including the party’s presidential election frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

    Obama must want a fresh selection of pictures and sob stories of adorable foreign children being deported for pre-election news.

    • Or to embarrass Hillary with…

        #EnforcementTheater according to Mark Krikorian. I agree.

      Same as when they shutdown the government briefly. Seniors and veterans were deliberately targeted for theatrical cuts in service (while the pork and waste went untouched) to show how mean those old Republicans were.

      I was about to say that this was a ruse to do exactly that for the Photo-ops to hit the Liberal MSM and incite fear and hatred for Trump.

    Central American? So not Mexican.

      My thoughts exactly. Like, Mexicans are good illegals and Central Americans are bad? Why the difference?

    121, really, that many? You can fall off of a ladder and land on that many in North Carolina.

    30 days? Even 300 days wouldn’t make much impact.

    Hillary’s “outcries” are sparked by polls. Nothing more.
