(CNN) — President Donald Trump is pushing forward with his immigration policy. Immigration officials will conduct raids in some of the country’s bigger cities over the weekend.
President Trump has backed down from having a citizenship question on the 2020 census, but he’s moving on with his previously scheduled plan to have thousands of migrants arrested.
ICE raids set to start Sunday in at least nine cities including Atlanta and New York. House minority leader Kevin McCarthy says people not in this country legally need to go.
“You’ve been here years, you’ve gone through a court system, you’ve been found that you have to be deported, you have to follow the rule of law,” Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said.
Miami mayor Francis Suarez says the raids are too extreme.
“Those who come to this country seeking freedom, seeking liberty, want to be tax-paying, productive members of our society should be Americans,” Mayor Francis Suarez (R-Miami) said.
The raids were postponed last month with President Trump saying he was giving both parties time to come up with a solution.
