Acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan confirmed Saturday that blame for the unexpected delay in the agency’s planned immigration raids partially rests with the media.
“The media got a hold of some operational specifics, and they reported it,” he said to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro. “It’s egregious and it puts the lives of the officers and agents at risk. The men and women at ICE are true American heroes. The president recognized that. He postponed it to protect them.”
While it remains unclear who exactly leaked information on ICE’s raids, both former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan and five other anonymous Trump administration officials believe acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan may be responsible.
Dovetailing back to the discussion on FNC’s “Justice with Jeanine,” the host, a staunch illegal immigration opponent, pressed Morgan about whether something will ever be done.
“The American people are fed up,” she said. “Every time we like hit the peddle, we pull back. The president, you know I absolutely support him totally … Now he puts the pressure on Nancy Pelosi, says give us a couple weeks. Do you have any faith that something is going to happen in two weeks when nothing has happened since 1986?”
I’ve got the green light to anyone that’s here in violation of federal immigration law,” he said. “I have the authority and the support to go after them, apply consequences, and remove them.”
“When you say you have the green light, are you doing it anyway?” Pirro replied.
On an individual level, yes, he replied.
“The men and women of ICE are doing this every day. We’re going after individuals and removing them every day. So this was not anything new. This was just an overall operation designed to go after and apply consequences to every demographic that’s here illegally, including families, something that political will hasn’t been there before.”
“The political will of the American people is there,” the judge retorted. “But we worry about the political will in Washington.”
At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!” Trump said on Saturday.
At least, for now, we can all stop with the attacks on President Trump because he made the right decision!
