US planning new wave of deportation raids: report

Source: THE HILL by Jesse Byrnes

The Obama administration is planning a new round of raids to deport those residing in the United States illegally, Reuters reported Thursday. U.S. immigration officials are reportedly planning to conduct the raids in May and June, deporting hundreds of individuals who came to the U.S. from Central America.

The arrests will be focused on mothers and children who've already been told to leave the U.S. and minors who entered the U.S. without a guardian and are now adults, the report said.

Officials apprehended 121 individuals following raids early this year in Georgia, Texas and North Carolina. The Obama administration caught flak for those raids from immigration activists and some Democrats, including presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

U.S. Border Patrol apprehended 32,000 family units mothers and children traveling together and illegally entering into the U.S. between October and March, more than twice the number for the same period the previous year, according to Reuters. Officials have been using raids to curb border crossing after a wave of migrants illegally entered the U.S. through its southern border in 2014, straining resources of the federal government.

2. How devastating this will be for the refugees

I wonder how President Obama can be doing this and not say anything to us as a nation about his actions? He doesn't even explain.

They are in my prayers.
