Update: Trump Delays ICE Raids for 2 Weeks

On Saturday June 22, President Trump tweeted that he is placing a 2-week delay on the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, previously anticipated to begin throughout the country on Sunday, June 23. According to the tweet his decision is “at the request of Democrats”. The tweet gives Congress two weeks to make progress on immigration reform, “if not. Deportations start.”

The ICE plan to target undocumented immigrants in 10 cities across the country, including San Francisco, sent many people into panic mode. In a statement issued yesterday, San Francisco Police vowed that officers will not help ICE in any immigration raids.

Governor Gavin Newsom and Mayors of Oakland and San Jose denounced the projected ICE raids.
