Trump administration officials sought Sunday to cool the heated rhetoric over anticipated immigration sweeps, arguing that enforcing deportation orders is routine — and occurred with greater frequency under President Obama.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway declined to discuss operational details, but said that Immigration and Customs Enforcement “does this every single day” and that Mr. Obama was known as the “deporter in chief.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“ICE does this every single day. Law enforcement in this country enforces the law,” said Ms. Conway on “Fox News Sunday.” “It’s a tautological definition of their duties. And this of course happened under President Obama. He was referred to as ‘deporter in chief’ very harshly in 2012.”
President Trump told reporters Friday that the apprehensions would begin Sunday. About 2,000 illegal aliens in 10 cities facing deportation orders after having their cases adjudicated are expected to be targeted.
“He [Obama] pushed back on actually Telemundo, a Spanish language station when they criticized him, and they said, you’re deporting 184,000 quote non criminals, and he said, ‘I’m not a king, I have to enforce the law,’” said Ms. Conway
