Several prominent Democratic lawmakers are looking to interfere with scheduled ICE raids that are supposed to be taking place over the weekend, urging illegal aliens to resist and bog down the system.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took to the podium on Thursday, telling illegals that they don’t have to answer the door if ICE agents come knocking.
“An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant,” Pelosi said. “If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, ICE does not have a legal right to enter a home.”
During her statement, Pelosi repeatedly pushed the mental image of children being forcibly separated from their families.
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also weighed in, urging illegal aliens to “check your neighbors and know your rights.”
“Remember: no one can enter your home without a *judicial warrant.*” she stated. “Sometimes, ICE will try to show other papers to get in your house. Judicial warrants are from a court.”
Even Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, former First Lady and failed presidential candidate offered advice, posting a series of Spanish-language guidelines to social media.
“Por favor comparte,” she wrote, advising people to “Please share.”
According to the Daily Mail, ICE is planning a multi-day roundup operation of over 2,000 illegal aliens.
In February of this year, ICE sent out over 2,000 letters, giving final orders of removal by judges in absentia, giving illegals one month to surrender.
CNN reports that the raids will take place in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco.
Despite massive criticism of the Trump Administration by Speaker Pelosi, Trump’s record fiscal year of 2018 – with 256,085 deportations conducted- paled in comparison to FY 2012, when the Obama administration deported more than 400,000 people.
