Shortly before Christmas Eve, the Department of Homeland announced its latest dog and pony show indicating plans to deport hundreds of illegal immigrant families who entered the United States in 2014, which happens to come about just as the 2016 presidential election season gets underway.
As espoused by White House/Media Matters sock puppets and media outlets pushing the same talking points, nearly verbatim. (Coincidence? I think not.)
The nationwide campaign, to be carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as soon as early January, would be the first large-scale effort to deport families who have fled violence in Central America, those familiar with the plan said. More than 100,000 families with both adults and children have made the journey across the southwest border since last year, though this migration has largely been overshadowed by a related surge of unaccompanied minors.
The ICE operation would target only adults and children who have already been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge[…]

As pointed out by Grumpy Opinions contributor, R. Trent:
Word I’m getting from within the ranks of ICE, is that this will be a half-hearted attempt to actually round up CentAm (Central American) families, and move them to Texas military facilities. There they will be staged for removal.
Expect low numbers to be actually grabbed up, but lots of news coverage. This will be tear jerking type coverage to be used by HRC and the Obama administration to wrench additional funding from a, so called, reluctant congress. Essentially, DHS is broke and can’t continue funding the housing of these people that they lured in, in the first place.
I hate to be a cynic, but this will probably be yet another coup pulled of by the Obama administration.
This is in addition to the recent funding to bring in 85,000 Syrians, and the CentAm countries conspiring to ship 8,500 Cubans currently backed up in Costa Rica, to the U.S. border.
Why do we still have the “Wet Foot/Dry Foot” policy for Cubans, if the Obama administration is making nice with the Castro’s?
As one who lives in a sanctuary state, I challenge the official number as provided by the Obama administration that 15 million illegal immigrants are in the United States.
With at least 8 and 10 million illegals living in New York State, maybe even the City alone that would mean that the true number of illegals in America is between 35 and 40 million people.
This promise of mass raids followed by the deportation of illegal immigrant “families” concocted by DHS is nothing more than propaganda and a half-hearted dog and pony show, i.e., presentation for the 2016 presidential election season using ICE agents and a few hundred illegals compared to the 40 million already here as props.
