Trump ‘Terror’ Raids Set To Begin

, USA TODAY, report that advocates are saying the Trump Administration will begin it long-planned roundup of undocumented residents as soon as this weekend in a move to “terrorize” immigrant communities.-

“The Trump administration credits its escalating series of threats and new policies for the slowdown, although border crossing traditionally declines in the heat of summer.

“This is not a ‘rule of law’ operation,” Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, tweeted Thursday. “The goal is to terrorize immigrant communities so immigrants do not seek protection in the US.”

A government report released last week found that migrants were being held in overcrowded conditions described as “a ticking time bomb.” In one room at Customs and Border Protection’s Fort Brown station near the U.S-Mexico border in Texas, 51 women were in a cell with a capacity for 40 juveniles, according to the report from the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general’s office. In another cell, 71 men were in a cell designated for 41, the report said.

Trump was dismissive of the report, saying the facilities he visited were clean and well run.

“I think they do a great job with those facilities,” Trump said.”
