ICE raids to "deport 2,000 immigrants" will be begin on Sunday

As first reported by the New York Times, the controversial raids will conducted over a number of days commencing the morning of July 14, which will include ‘collateral’ deportations according to two anonymous ICE officials.

Officers have been instructed to detain immigrants who happen to be in the vicinity of the raid, even if they weren’t the intended target of it, the officials said.

Family members who are arrested together will be held in family detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania, but space limitations mean that some will be held up in hotels until proper travel documents can be prepared.
