This isn't the first time Trump has used this stunt, so it comes as no surprise that the raids were called off. Maybe he thought some would run scared into Mexico. Who knows?  It's true that given the resources, they should concentrate on the worst offenders first, but that still doesn't give the no-shows a free pass.

 

But to the point, how can Nancy Pelosi call out Trump and his corrupt administration for obstruction of justice, ignoring lawful subpoenas, and undermining the rule of law, and then turn around and say that asylum seekers who are no shows for court subpoenas get a free pass? You either stand for something, or you don't. How can you be the party of "equal justice under the law" if you are unwilling to have it applied equally? If you don't, you are no better than Trump and lose all credibility (partisans excepted, I suppose).

 

If she wants to call Trump out for the way the immigrants are being mistreated, that is altogether different. But that's not what she said. Pelosi should have D's talking about how the laws need to be changed to fix all of this, including how ICE is allowed to operate, IMHO.

Hold up a minute.  Before you throw Pelosi solely under the bus, in all fairness. Patrick McAleenan also had reservations about Trump's sudden plan to conduct a mass raid on families and its scope.

 

Acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan has been urging ICE, an agency within his department, to conduct a narrower, more targeted operation that would seek to detain a group of about 150 families that were provided with attorneys but dropped out of the legal process and absconded.

McAleenan has warned that an indiscriminate operation to arrest migrants in their homes and at work sites risks separating children from their parents in cases where the children are at day care, summer camp or friend’s houses. He also has maintained that ICE should not devote major resources to carrying out a mass interior sweep while telling lawmakers it needs emergency funding to address the crisis at the U.S. border.

One thing I found odd, when you get ready to conduct a raid, don't you usually try to keep it under wraps lest you tip the perps off? And yet everyone, legal AND illegal, knew it was coming because Trump tweeted about it on Monday -- a week in advance!

 

Large-scale immigration enforcement operations are typically kept secret to avoid tipping off targets, but Trump’s tweet Monday blew the cover off the roundup. That the operation was revealed publicly stunned law enforcement officials, and they believe it gave them more latitude to discuss the raids.

Some within DHS and ICE say the president appears to be using the operation for political purposes as he begins his reelection bid. Law enforcement officials worry that by publicly discussing the plan, Trump has undermined the chances of capturing those on the target list, as it could have pushed migrants with deportation orders underground.

Exactly.

“These families are hard-working members of our communities and our country,” she said in a statement. “The president’s action makes no distinction between [an immigrant] status violation and committing a serious crime.”

Oh my, and who has NO RESPECT FOR THE RULE OF LAW  "THE MOST,"  The Donald. He has taught THE WORLD well that he has NO RESPECT, so why pick on the Democrats who may just be doing what he does? 

 

Isn't what's good for the goose is good for the gander?

Mick, I agree. This is the thing that gets D's in trouble with a lot of moderate and independent voters. They talk about rule of law except when the narrative doesn't suit them. Immigration laws should be enforced the same as any other law.  Obama did that to greater degree than any of his predicessors, and was often criticized by the more liberal left of his own party.

 

There's no doubt about it; our immigration system is broken and laws need to be changed. That's Pelosi's job and that is what she should be working on.
