According to several Friday reports, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is set to being rounding up illegal aliens in 10 cities on Sunday morning.
CNN reported the story citing a “senior immigration official.”
Monday President Donald J. Trump Tweeted that ICE would begin removing illegal aliens from the United States, while his base waits anxiously for action on border security. Families who have already gone through legal proceedings and have been not been granted status to remain in the United States will reportedly be arrested and deported first.
“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he said.

Trump also praised Mexico, which buckled after a threat of tariffs from the Trump administration, and vowed to crack down on the influx of illegal aliens from Central America making their way through Mexico and into the United States.
Acting head of ICE Mark Morgan, a former head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) under president Barack H. Obama, echoed Trump’s sentiments in a Wednesday statement.
“If you’re here illegally, then you should be removed,” he reportedly said. “And in this case, that includes families.”
Morgan has long been a supporter of Trump’s border security plan.
Big League Politics reported:
Mark Morgan has been outspokenly pro-wall, and during the January budget showdown over border wall funding, came out in support of Trump’s plan to secure the border.
“I’m here today breaking my silence to tell the American people that the President is correct in what he’s doing,” he said in a January interview. “The wall works, 100 percent, and I’m here today to support his efforts and what he’s doing to get what he needs to improve border security of this great nation.”
Trump, who promised to build a wall to secure the border during his 2016 campaign, has been unable to accomplish that goal, no thanks to the Republicans in Congress who failed to pass border security legislation when they controlled the House and Senate from 2016 to 2018.
In order to campaign on border security in 2020, Trump appears to recognize that he need to show his base some results.

SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed
A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.
The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.
14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.
It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.
The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.
Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:
Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
