90 Miles From Tyranny : Trump’s promised ICE raids now canceled due to deep state leaks that would have ‘endangered law enforcement officers’ — guilty party identified?

Trump’s promised ICE raids now canceled due to deep state leaks that would have ‘endangered law enforcement officers’ — guilty party identified?

On Friday, we reported on a leak to the media regarding President Donald Trump’s recent pledge that Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids were set to begin Sunday, targeting illegal aliens who have been ordered out of the country by immigration judges.

We noted that though the president tweeted about the raids, details were still sketchy since he never revealed anything beyond the fact that they were going to happen — at some point.


Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people.......

65.6K people are talking about this
But as happens so often with this president, someone from the #NeverTrump bureaucracy leaked those details to the media, which, of course, quickly reported them because as we’ve seen with “Spygate,” the Washington establishment media has become nothing more than an organ of the deep state.

Now, some have questioned why the president would publicly announce such raids, and the answer is, perhaps our compassionate commander-in-chief wanted to give those in our country illegally a chance to leave on their own.

Fair enough. But beyond that very public warning, the details of ICE operations would necessarily remain covert so that agents could achieve maximum results for their efforts.

But no. Someone within government leaked to The Washington Post details of the raids which, if the Post leak is correct, will begin on Sunday in major U.S. cities the paper named specifically…

The Post went so far as to publish which cities were going to be targeted, who was going to be targeted, and, importantly, when they were going to be targeted:

President Trump has directed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to conduct a mass roundup of migrant families that have received deportation orders, an operation that is likely to begin with predawn raids in major U.S. cities on Sunday, according to three U.S. officials with knowledge of the plans.

The “family op,” as it is referred to at ICE and the Department of Homeland Security, is slated to target up to 2,000 families facing deportation orders in as many as 10 U.S. cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles and other major immigration destinations, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the law enforcement operation. …

ICE has been preparing agents and equipment for the operation, which is expected to unfold across several days starting Sunday morning, the officials said. Discussions about the scope of the operation continued Friday at ICE, DHS and the White House, two officials said.

As for whether the leak was punitive against the president, the San Francisco Chronicle provided more evidence. Following the president’s tweet’s ICE wasn’t talking:

ICE officials reportedly told the Washington Post that no operations were planned.

Now we know that, indeed, the leak was punitive because the administration has now canceled the raids out of fear that ICE agents’ lives would be put at risk of they proceeded.

In an interview with Fox News’ Judge Janine Pirro on Saturday, Acting ICE Director Mark Morgan lamented the fact that details of the operation had been leaked while announcing that the raids would be put on hold for the time being.

“The media got ahold of some operational specifics, and they reported it. It’s just egregious, and it puts the lives of the officers and agents at risk,” Morgan said.

“The men and women at ICE are true American heroes. The president recognized that. He postponed it to protect them,” he continued.

For his part, the president announced on Saturday that...
