Immigration raids are expected to take place this Sunday, with raids expected to deport up to 2,000 families who are in the United States illegally.
Raids will take place across 10 U.S. cities, including Los Angles, Miami, Chicago and Houston.
Of course, not everyone is happy about the impending raids, particularly Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot who said she has terminated ICE’s access to Chicago Police Department (CPD) databases related to federal immigration enforcement activities in response to the threats of the raids.
ICE stands for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S Customs Service and the immigration and Naturalization Service. ICE has more than 20,000 law enforcement and support personnel in more than 400 offices in the US and around the world.
ICE’S mission is to protect America from the cross-border crime and illegal immigration that threaten national security and public safety. ICE paves the way on smart immigration and preventing of terrorism and combating the illegal movement of people and goods.
The Los Angeles Police Department stated in tweets that they would not participate or assist in the immigration enforcement actions.
ICE will be targeting families and wanting to deport families who have recently illegally arrived in the United States to send a clear message to deter Central Americans from arriving.
The number of apprehended illegal aliens crossing the U.S. Mexico border surged to the highest level in May since 2006.
The Texas governor said the state was deploying 1,000 National Guard troops to the border after more than 45,000 illegals were apprehended illegally crossing in the last 21 days.
In Australia it was reported in 2017, that there was more than 64,000 people illegally hiding in Australia having overstayed working and tourist visas. Figures confirm that 12,000 have been hiding in Australia for more than 20 years with more than 1750 found to be working without authorisation. This has cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars trying to track unlawful overstayers.
Most of the 64,000 would have travelled to Australia by air, not boat, with many, with little if any, regard for Australian law.
In 2018, we had athletes who came to Australia on false pretences to play at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. The overseas athletes came from African countries including Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Uganda and Cameroon, all purposely missed their event and breaching their visa conditions and fled. At the time Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton warned athletes they would be tracked down, locked up and deported.
Of course, the refugee advocates such as ‘Welcome Legal’ was quick to help and jumped in to save the so-called refugees assisting the country shoppers with legal applications to seek permanent residency in Australia.
It was revealed in Senate estimates in May 2018 that about 250 people had fled the Games. About 200 of those had applied for visas, mostly on the grounds of protection with many stating they were gay, while others remained in the country unlawfully.
There have been no updates since. Why? Because they too are hiding amongst us and others may have won their so called protection visa's to stay permanently in Australia.
It’s time to round up all those hiding in Australia and ‘send them back to where they come from’.
Australia needs to also deploy a ‘Deportation Team’ and start immigration raids of its own, to get rid of all those illegally hiding amongst us.
