Trump To Postpone Mass Deportation Raids As He Seeks Compromise With Democrats


According to a report by Reuters, on Saturday, US President Donald Trump said that he would postpone mass deportation raids for two weeks as he seeks a compromise with Democratic leaders on immigration issues. The president was reportedly under pressure from Democrats to call off the raids, which were expected to take place in up to 10 US cities on Sunday. On Friday, the Washington Post reported that the raids were expected to target up to 2,000 families facing deportation orders in cities that included Houston, Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles.

  • Biden Uses Midterms Haul To Bolster His 2020 Chances

    Former Vice President Joe Biden raised more money for a PAC that supports Democrats in 2018 than any of his likely White House competitors did. But unlike many of them, he spent the lion’s share of that haul on himself. Biden’s PAC gave Democratic candidates just a quarter of the more than $2 million he raised and spent during the midterms. At the same time, he spent half a million dollars on websites and digital ads that could help him bolster his online presence and raise money from small donors for a 2020 primary campaign, and more of his PAC funds went to travel and other expenses.

  • Senate Panel Backs Trump's Court Pick, But Flake Seeks FBI Probe

However, moderate Republican Senator Jeff Flake called for an FBI investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against the judge before a final Senate vote. Flake’s intervention means a final Senate vote on the nomination could be delayed for up to a week so that the possible FBI investigation can be completed.

  • Increasing Number Of Democrats Call To Abolish ICE

    An increasing number of high-ranking Democrats, some potential 2020 presidential candidates, are calling for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to be dismantled. New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand has gone the farthest, saying this week that ICE "has become a deportation force" and should be replaced with "something that actually works." The stance embraces a viewpoint that until recently had been isolated to far-left party activists.

  • NRA Head Wayne LaPierre Attacks Democrats Call For Gun Debate One Week After Florida Mass Shooting

    The head of the biggest gun lobby in the US has accused Democrats of pushing a "socialist" agenda to deprive gun owners of their weapons, in an uncompromising speech just a week after 17 people died in the Florida school shooting. Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association, made no attempt to moderate his message a day after survivors of the Parkland shooting faced down lawmakers in a CNN debate and the President at the White House. Instead, he told conservative activists that voters should be "frightened" of any future Democrat election victories, and accused Democrats of exploiting the deaths in an effort to destroy the Second Amendment. "Socialism is a movement that loves a smear," he said. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of conservatives outside Washington, LaPierre warned Democrats would use the tragedy to push an agenda that went beyond gun control. "What they want is more restrictions on the law-abiding," LaPierre said. "They want to sweep right under the carpet the failure of school security." Staring out into the audience, LaPierre told them "you should be anxious and you should be frightened" about the potential of another Democratic takeover of the House, Senate and White House.
