President Donald Trump announced Saturday afternoon he has "delayed" a scheduled ICE deportation action "at the request of Democrats," though his own acting DHS head Kevin McAleenan is being accused of leaking raid locations to the Washington Post and directly sabotaging the effort.
From The Daily Mail, "Trump now says he will delay deportation raids for two weeks":
President Donald Trump has said that he is delaying planned enforcement actions by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to remove thousands of illegal immigrants who have court orders for deportation.As a reminder, Trump on Monday announced before launching his reelection campaign that ICE will be deporting "millions" come "next week" and tipped illegals and their Democrat and Republican abettors off to the upcoming effort.
As Politico noted, Trump's tweet "was a departure from ICE's normal practice of keeping enforcement operations closely held until they've been executed."
On Friday the story changed to ICE is going to deport "2,000" illegal aliens with weak-as-hell DHS Sec. Kevin McAleenan saying they'd be done in the nicest and most limited way possible.
As the Washington Post reported:
Acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan has been urging ICE, an agency within his department, to conduct a narrower, more targeted operation that would seek to detain a group of about 150 families that were provided with attorneys but dropped out of the legal process and absconded.Former ICE head Thomas Homan on Saturday morning appeared to accuse McAleenan of directly undermining the operation, leaking details of the raids to the Washington Post and putting ICE officers' lives at risk:
DHS Sec. Kevin McAleenan, who Trump appointed recently despite being a total clown, is just as bad if not worse than Kirstjen Nielsen and is letting illegal aliens flood into the country at record levels:
On Saturday afternoon, Trump himself caved and ordered the whole effort to be "delayed" for "two weeks."
Though the media is acting like Trump is some sort of fascist throwing children in "concentration camps," he's actually deporting much less illegals than Obama and ended the much-needed family separation policies which were started under Obama and reimplemented by Jeff Sessions.
Trump needs to fire McAleenen immediately and stop hiring people who hate him and oppose everything he ran on. His consistently terrible appointments have made his entire term a complete and total clown show.
UPDATE: Two anonymous US officials told Buzzfeed they believe this effort was sabotaged by Kevin McAleenan or his staff:
However, two senior administration officials told BuzzFeed News that those within the administration believe acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, or his staff, leaked operational details and that is what ultimately put the ICE operation in jeopardy.It needs to be underlined that immigration hawks warned Trump repeatedly against hiring McAleenan but he hired him anyways.
