ICE raids delayed ahead of Pence's 'Latinos for Trump' roll out in Miami

Days before the launch of his ‘Trump for Latinos’ campaign in Miami, President Donald Trump postponed immigration raids today planned to begin Sunday on migrant communities across the country.

Immigrant advocates, the families and people they aim to protect, law enforcement officials and governments across the nation had all been preparing for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, to conduct large-scale raids, after Trump threatened to “deport millions,” earlier this week. Then in tweets on Saturday, Trump first maintained that only people who were given notice to leave because of their status would be detained, then dropped plans entirely, citing a two-week deadline for U.S.-Mexico border policy....

Asked what he thought about the overlap in timing between Pence campaigning for Hispanic votes and potential ICE raids, Wenski said there is “always a risk for anyone with an irregular [immigration] status.”

“He’s coming down to pay attention to the Hispanic community that has a vote and hopefully that population will convey to him that we need a better immigration system for everyone in this country,” he said.

3. if any Latinos are turning out for Trump it will be like "Jews for Hitler"

Hello, anyone in the Hispanic community who thinks of Trump as your guy, better read about Trump's concentration camp treatment of children, families, people. In fact, every American should be enraged.
