Former leaders at the Department of Homeland Security, including then-Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, pushed back on a White House plan for mass arrests of migrants shortly before their ouster, according to The Washington Post.

The Trump administration had planned to arrest thousands of parents and children in 10 major U.S. cities to deter further migrants, the Post reported, citing seven current and former DHS officials. The plan involved fast-tracking immigration court cases and expanding the government’s authority to deport migrants who did not show for their hearings. Arrests of the no-shows would involve coordinated raids of the homes and neighborhoods of parents with children, according to the Post.

The article goes on to state the following:

Nielsen and then-acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Ronald Vitiello put a stop to the plan, citing lack of preparation by ICE personnel and public relations concerns, according to the Post.

    Screw the public relations, if they don’t show up for court deport them….it’s only the demorats that will be crying about it

      I agree. What would happen to a US citizen if we didn’t show up for our court date? It’s different I guess if you’re illegal, you can get by with it.

    …and that’s why they were relieved (fired) from their positions. Good riddance. Conclusion: Trump’s hunches always prove true.

    If the rule of law means anything anymore, if they don’t show, they should automatically be arrested and sent back to their country of origin

    Have no pity for the illegals. No one asked them to come to our country – they did it on their own. DHS needs to take care of their own citizens first then worry about others. Everyday more traitors to our America are being revealed.
