For years, so-called sanctuary cities have openly violated federal law. They have put the well-being of criminal aliens and illegals ahead of American citizens. President Trump has warned these regions to start obeying immigration laws, or else. The Democrats who run these places have ignored him. Now, Trump is done playing games, as this plan is about to happen.

Fixing our broken immigration system has been one of Trump’s top priorities as president. He’s already done so much to help America—including the booming economy, low unemployment, a better military—you’d think everyone would be on board with his immigration reform.

Yet this one issue has turned out to be his toughest. That’s because Democrats have been protecting illegal immigrants for years. The left has rejected American labor unions and hard-working families to help a group that takes our jobs, invites crime into our communities, and drains government resources.

Even worse, Democrats refuse to let criminal aliens face the justice they deserve, by hiding them in their sanctuary cities.

As the border crisis continues, Trump is moving to hit Democrats right where it hurts. Last month, he authorized ICE to start deporting millions of illegal immigrants. He put that plan on hold, waiting for Congress to actually do their jobs.

Now, the wait is over. And thousands of illegals are about to get the boot.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are preparing to conduct raids beginning Sunday to arrest thousands of illegal immigrants across the U.S. just weeks after President Trump announced that he was delaying the operation.

The ICE agents will target at least 2,000 immigrants whose deportations have already been ordered, a New York Times report said, citing one former and two current Department of Homeland Security officials…

The June operation was expected to target 2,000 families in as many as 10 cities, including Chicago, Baltimore, New York, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami. Last month, President Trump announced on Twitter that he wants ICE agents to start the process of “removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the U.S.” [Source: Fox News]

Specifics of the raids are being kept secret, to protect ICE agents. You might remember recently, when the mayor of Oakland betrayed the country by warning illegals of a coming raid. Her interference put ICE agents in danger and let hundres of illegals flee justice. ICE isn’t going to let that happen again.

We do know they are targeting sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and high-immigrant regions like Houston and Miami.

These are “innocent” immigrants who are just want a better life. These are people who broke the law and have been ordered to leave. Of course, they’ve refused, forcing ICE agents to risk their lives to apprehend and deport them.

You have to figure that these drastic steps are necessary, because of our weak immigration laws. Democrats have made it so that it’s easy for illegals to get in and hard for America to get them out. Immigration laws favor people who come here illegally—often dragging young children across dangerous regions—while neglecting legal immigrants and hurting hard-working Americans.

ICE wouldn’t have to conduct these raids, if catch-and-release and other Obama-era programs didn’t exist. If Congress bothered to follow the president’s lead and pass immigration reform, putting America’s needs first, these raids wouldn’t be necessary.

If they had helped provide funding for the wall, we wouldn’t have the crisis we are facing now.

But when have Democrats ever done anything to help Americans, not hurt us? I can’t remember.

The only good news is, despite overwhelming obstruction from the left, Trump is making good on his word. Parts of the wall are being built. More resources are being sent to secure the border. And ICE is deporting illegals who refuse to go.

Imagine what he could do, if Congress actually cared? But I guess that’s just crazy talk, huh?
