ICE preparing targeted arrests in sanctuary cities, amplifying president's campaign theme

Source: Washington Post

The Trump administration is preparing an immigration enforcement blitz next month that would target arrests in U.S. cities and jurisdictions that have adopted "sanctuary" policies, according to three U.S. officials who described a plan with public messaging that echoes the president's law-and-order campaign rhetoric.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement operation, known informally as the "sanctuary op," could begin in California as soon as later this week. It would then expand to cities including Denver and Philadelphia, according to two of the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive government law enforcement plans.
Chad Wolf, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, likely will travel to at least one of the jurisdictions where the operation will take place to boost President Trump's claims that leaders in those cities have failed to protect residents from dangerous criminals, two officials said.

Trump has inveighed against so-called sanctuary jurisdictions throughout his presidency, and he has expanded those attacks to include Democratic mayors in cities convulsed by racial justice protests and sporadic rioting after the death of George Floyd while in police custody in May. The immigration operation would sync with two themes of Trump’s reelection campaign: His crackdown on immigration his push to vilify cities led by Democrats, who he blames for crime and violence.
Two officials with knowledge of plans for the “sanctuary op” described it as more of a political messaging campaign than a major ICE operation, noting that the agency already prioritizes immigration violators with criminal records and routinely arrests them without much fanfare.

7. That isn't suppressing votes. Non citizens are not supposed to vote. What this is, is denying peop

due process, and inhuman treatment of the undocumented people

10. I ranted too quickly so I'm grateful to you for setting my comment straight but the first thought

was 'Ramping this up before the election! How many citizens is he going to wrap up in this process to suppress votes?'

Either way the whole thing disgusts me.

On Edit. There's the whole scare people into not voting aspect of this as well.
