Advocates Preparing For Large ICE Raid In California

- Federal immigration officials are reportedly preparing for a major sweep in Northern California after the director of ICE threatened to target California for becoming a sanctuary state.

Known as the Basic Ordering Agreement, the deal struck between 17 Florida sheriffs and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would allow local authorities to hold illegal immigrants even beyond the time they normally would have to be released based on state or local cases.

Citing an anonymous source, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that a "campaign, centered in the Bay Area, could happen within weeks, and is expected to become the biggest enforcement action of its kind under President Trump".

An official with ICE told ABC7 News he can't speculate about future operations. An ICE spokesperson would not confirm or deny reports.

Last October Homan made clear that California's Gov.

Proponents of the law have argued that sanctuary laws are necessary to establish trust between immigrants and local law enforcement.

With local and state law enforcement unable to assist, ICE will have to round up illegal aliens in the open which puts citizens and law enforcement officers at risk thanks to California's risky policies.

President Trump not mentally stable, says 47% of Americans
Democrats are not as keen on their pupil: just eight percent would give Trump an "A" or "B" and 79% would give Trump a "D" or "F". More than half said the country is worse off since Trump became president.

Early this month, Homan told Fox News that "California better hold on tight". "We've been waiting for more raids and them wanting to make an example of those jurisdictions". "It might get ugly".

Those who have criminal records and those who have been served final deportation papers will be the focus, but if they come across other undocumented immigrants during the raid they could be taken into custody too.

During a news conference Wednesday, immigration and law enforcement officials said the new protocol will allow jail operators to comply with federal requests to detain immigrants suspected of living in the country illegally.

Pelosi called any planned raids "an act of pure malice" against hard-working immigrants simply for being Californians. "These raids will certainly not make Americans safer".

"They're about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the state of California", Homan said at the time.

"ICE places a high priority on enhancing public safety through the arrest and removal of criminal aliens from the United States", ICE said in a statement. "Our community is ready to stand with our undocumented neighbors, with many of us, including myself, willing to risk arrest in order to protect our values".
