Pelosi on Saturday welcomed the president's announcement delaying the planned raids.

President Trump has directed ICE agents to conduct a mass roundup of migrant families that have received deportation orders, an operation that is likely to begin with pre-dawn raids in major USA cities today, according to three United States officials with knowledge of the plans.

President Donald Trump said on Saturday he will delay plans for a mass deportation of undocumented immigrants for two weeks so that he can negotiate with members of congress - a move that was quickly applauded by Democrats.

"I'm afraid just thinking of Sunday", said one woman, who identified herself as an undocumented immigrant from Mexico and prefers to hide her identity.

"While we can not be certain of what may happen, if anything, we do know that Minneapolis has NOT been named as one of the ten cities", officials wrote.

Lightfoot said Chicago Police had terminated ICE's access to the department's databases, and that she had "personally spoken with ICE leadership and voiced my strong objection to any such raids". Minneapolis officials are "prohibited from taking any action to detect or apprehend people based exclusively on their immigration status". Residents are not required to open their doors to officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement unless they have a warrant signed by a judge. Democrats have been decrying his policy, with liberal cities resisting ICE raids.

High Levels Of Arsenic Found In 2 Brands Of Bottled Water
The nonprofit Center for Environmental Health study showed that two bottled water brands violated state arsenic guidelines. Two bottled water brands sold at stores across the country have been found to contain high levels of arsenic.

This one is different because Trump announced Monday on Twitter that it would be the start of an effort to deport millions of people in the country illegally, a near-impossibility given limited resources of ICE, which makes the arrests and carries out deportation orders. "If you're in the city of Houston, I'm your mayor".

Some of the mayors, including Chicago's Lori Lightfoot and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, said their city would not assist in the immigration raids. "We're going to do that with compassion and dignity, but we're going to enforce the law".

But Morgon says the goal isn't to separate families, he says it's to deter migrants from trying to cross the US-Mexico border. Please know your city is here for you. "Many of those cities are high-crime and sanctuary cities".

Now, a senior immigration official has confirmed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, is set to launch those raids beginning Sunday. Some people will appeal their cases, and eventually some will be deported.

Officials at some local jails that have agreements to hold ICE detainees have said they have not received any notification that they could expect an influx of detainees in coming days.
