2. As I understand it, Pelosi called and asked him not to do it. The deal was reached after that...

not sure if that was in exchange.

4. Well, yes, but

remember, only Democrats are bound by promises.

Republicans do what they want to and, the cool part is, Democrats never seem to catch on to it.

5. Not quite

The stated reason for the delay (two weeks?) was to give congress time to "work out a solution" to "asylum and loophole problems" along the border.

Not sure what the current raid explanation is... since I don't think that either such a "solution" or a "clean" wall-funding bill has passed anyway. Maybe it's both.

Pelosi: Trump's delayed ICE raids run counter to 'civilized human behavior'

NEW YORK — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Monday blasted President Donald Trump’s plan to conduct sweeping deportation raids against thousands of undocumented immigrants over the weekend after he postponed the operation in an attempt to squeeze congressional Democrats into changing asylum laws.

“When I saw that the president was going to have these raids — I mean, it was so appalling,” Pelosi said at an event at the Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens, with Rep. Grace Meng (D-N.Y.). “It’s outside the circle of civilized human behavior to just be kicking down doors, splitting up families.”


After having touted the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, which were expected to hit several major cities across the country, including New York City, Trump announced Saturday that he would delay them for two weeks

7. I thought the threat was simply another dog whistle

I don't think it was ever their plan to actually carry out mass raids. It was always a dog whistle. It's not like hiring illegal immigrant workers is a problem for Trump personally.

I'll believe the raids when I see them. If they do, that's when get my torch out of the closet.
