ICE plans to start rounding up illegal aliens and sending them home Sunday, according to The New York Times.
Who: U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
What: “Nationwide raids to arrest thousands of members of undocumented families have been scheduled to begin Sunday, according to two current and one former homeland security officials, moving forward with a rapidly changing operation, the final details of which remain in flux,” The Times said.
Two weeks ago, President Trump said the operation would begin, but paused the plan – which was to deport those with final deportation orders – to give Democrats time to come to the negotiating table.
According to Breaking News Live, ICE raids will occur in the following cities:

Why It Matters: The deportations are a signal of good faith from the Trump administration to his base. Fighting the establishment GOP and the Democrats has led to slow progress in the way of border security, which was one of Trump’s main campaign pillars.
