Acting immigration chief remains quiet about whether or not ICE raids will separate families

Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Ken Cuccinelli kept quiet Sunday on details of the nationwide immigration raids that began Saturday night, including whether or not families would be separated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.

Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Cuccinelli said he would not discuss any operation details of the raids in order to protect ICE agents from any danger and would not guarantee that families would not be separated in the raids.

“In the same way I wasn’t willing to talk about operation details …. I won’t comment on that,” he said. “There are 1 million people, including families, with removal orders.”

ICE RELEASES REPORT OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO ALLEGEDLY COMMITTED CRIMES AFTER COPS IGNORED DETENTION REQUESTS

CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed Cuccinelli on how pledging that ICE would not separate families is “operational.”

“I’m not going to say yes or no to anything like that, because then certain people can write themselves off … or play a loophole,” Cuccinelli said.

Cuccinelli also would not confirm that the raids had started, even as a senior administration official told Fox News earlier that the crackdown began late Saturday evening.

ICE resumed its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of undocumented immigrants who’ve been given orders to leave the country, targeting people living in at least 10 cities. The ICE raids began late Saturday and into the early morning hours on Sunday in “a number of jurisdictions,” not just New York City, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.

Cuccinelli said the main goal of the raid was to apprehend violent criminals, but that “will not be the exclusive limit of any operation.”

One group that will not be targeted in the raids, however, is migrant families evacuating due to Tropical Storm Barry.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security said in a news release Thursday night that it is focused on ensuring that people along the Gulf Coast stay safe during the storm.

Officials said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection will not be conducting the immigration operations in places where evacuations or sheltering is occurring, unless there is “a serious public safety threat.”

Immigrant communities have been on edge since President Donald Trump’s administration announced plans for the operation, inflaming the political debate over immigration. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a pre-emptive lawsuit Thursday that aims to protect asylum seekers. Activists held demonstrations and advocates coached immigrants on their rights.

Administration officials have said that the coordinated action will target about 2,000 people with final deportation orders in major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Miami.

De Blasio blasts Biden over Obama administration’s deportation record

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said on Sunday that former Vice President – and current Democratic presidential primary frontrunner – Joe Biden should “absolutely” answer for the Obama administration’s deportation record.

Calling the Obama administration’s handling of immigrant deportations a “mistake,” de Blasio – one of almost two dozen Democrats trying to close the polling gap with Biden – said that Democrats have the same responsibility to answer for their record on immigration that Republicans do.

“Let’s be honest, I think there’s a lot of issues where Democrats and Republicans, unfortunately, have some responsibility for the problems,” de Blasio said during an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “That was a mistake, in the end, what we needed a very different approach.”

WHY THOSE ICE RAIDS ARE BEING ANNOUNCED IN ADVANCE

De Blasio argued that the Obama administration, and Biden as vice president, have to answer for the record rates of deportations during their time in the White House.

“Democrats often been scared of their own shadows,” de Blasio said.

The New York City mayor also took issue with President Trump’s plan to deport undocumented immigrants through raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement – saying that it will “divide Americans.”

The deportation raids would pursue people with final deportation orders, including families whose immigration cases were fast-tracked by judges in 10 major cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Miami. The plan has sparked outrage and concern among immigrant-rights advocates and lawmakers.

“Our communities have been in constant fear,” Estela Vara, a Chicago-area organizer said Thursday at a rally outside the city’s Immigration and Custom Enforcement offices where some activists chanted “Immigration Not Deportation!”

The raids began late Saturday night and into the early morning hours on Sunday in “a number of jurisdictions,” not just New York City, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.

In an interview on “FOX & Friends,” Acting ICE director Matt Albence said while he couldn’t speak to anything specifically from an operational perspective, the overarching concern when the agency conducts any sort of enforcement operation is “the safety and security of both our officers that are conducting the operation as well as the public.”

“We are doing targeted enforcement actions against specific individuals who have had their day in immigration court and have been ordered to be removed by an immigration judge,” Albence told Fox News. “We are merely executing those lawfully issued judge’s orders.”

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson plays real-life hero as ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ premiere delayed by electrical sparks

Saturday night’s premiere of “Hobbs & Shaw” was brought to a halt following a brief electrical issue in the Dolby Theater.

Reports from inside the venue say an electrical grid toward the front of the theater started sparking about 30 minutes into the screening, causing flashes and loud popping sounds to fill the room. The sparks then moved upward from the floor in the center of the orchestra and back toward a block of seats.

Indiana boy, 2, ran over by lawn mower, airlifted to hospital for ‘serious injuries,’ police say

A toddler in Indiana sustained serious injuries on Saturday after his grandfather backed over him with a lawn mower, according to officials.

The Jennings County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook the incident happened around 1 p.m. on the 3600 block of Grayford Road in Commiskey, located about 70 miles south of Indianapolis.

“Deputies are still investigating and thus far calling it a terrible accident,” police said. “Our thoughts are with the family during this difficult time.”

Kellyanne Conway points to ‘Deporter in Chief’ Obama in defense of ICE raids

While the Trump administration is taking heat from Democrats as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) begins deportation operations across the country, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway claims that the president is simply following in the footsteps of his Democratic predecessor.

Recalling how raids were carried out under President Obama, Conway discussed the reputation the 44th president garnered due to his actions against undocumented immigrants.

“He was referred to as ‘Deporter in Chief,’ very harshly in 2012,” Conway noted, “and he said ‘I’m not a king, I have to enforce the law.’”

Conway said that the ongoing deportation operations are simply part of ICE’s job.

“ICE does this every single day, it’s called enforcement actions,” she added, point out that the people being targeted are those who already have final removal orders against them after they exhausted their appeals.

Conway also discussed the ongoing crisis at the southern border, saying she is opposed to separating children from their parents.

“I think you can enforce the law without separating families,” she said.

Conway blamed the practice on those who are no longer part of the administration. Family separation drew headlines when it started taking place on a large scale under a zero-tolerance policy on illegal border crossing that started under former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking case draws his New Mexico ranch into investigation

A sprawling desert ranch south of Santa Fe is tied to a New Mexico state attorney general investigation targeting financier Jeffrey Epstein, according to reports.

News of the probe comes as Epstein, a 66-year-old registered sex offender in Florida and New York, faces new charges of sex trafficking underage girls in an indictment Manhattan federal prosecutors obtained last week.

Also drawing scrutiny is a New Mexico law that allowed Epstein to avoid having to register as a sex offender in the state.

“New Mexico continues to lag behind the rest of the country in strengthening outdated and weak laws that fail to protect our children from abuse,” New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas told The Associated Press in an emailed statement. “This is a huge black eye for our state.”

LABOR SECRETARY ACOSTA ANNOUNCES HE WILL STEP DOWN, AMID CRITICISM OVER EPSTEIN PLEA DEAL

A Balderas spokesman confirmed his office had interviewed possible victims of Epstein who visited the ranch, the AP reported. The office has not said how many accusers were interviews or elaborated on what they say took place at the property.

In a 2015 court filing in Florida, a plaintiff in a lawsuit against Epstein said she had been abused at several locations, including the New Mexico property, according to the AP.

In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty in Florida to state charges of soliciting a minor for prostitution under an agreement that required him to spend 13 months in jail and register as a sex offender. The agreement has been widely criticized for secretly ending a federal sex abuse investigation involving at least 40 teenage girls at the time that could have landed him behind bars for life.

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta said Friday he’s stepping down amid the tumult over his handling of the 2008 deal with Epstein. Acosta was the U.S. attorney in Miami when he oversaw the non-prosecution agreement.

Epstein purchased Zorro Ranch from the family of former New Mexico Gov. Bruce King years ago.

In 2010, the New Mexico Department of Public Safety sent Epstein a letter saying he had to register as a sex offender and then sent a second letter a month later saying that he did not have to register, KOAT-TV reported.

Epstein wasn’t required to register because the age of the victim in the Florida prostitution case involved a girl who was 17 and the rules are different for that offense in New Mexico, according to the station.

He would have been required to register if the victim was 16 or younger, according to reports.

Epstein has pleaded not guilty to the sex trafficking charges.

ICE deportation raids underway in New York City, ‘number of jurisdictions,’ official says

A nationwide crackdown to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants across the country began late Saturday in the nation’s largest city and several other places, according to an official.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was expected to resume its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants who’ve been given orders to leave the country, targeting people in at least 10 cities. The sweeps were expected to start Sunday, but New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday on Twitter that ICE agents had already taken action in New York.

The ICE raids began late Saturday and into the early morning hours on Sunday in “a number of jurisdictions,” not just New York City, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.

De Blasio said the raids in New York City took place in parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

WHY THOSE ICE RAIDS ARE BEING ANNOUNCED IN ADVANCE

“Receiving reports of attempted but reportedly unsuccessful ICE enforcement actions in Sunset Park and Harlem,” the mayor said. “@NYCImmigrants and advocates are connecting with residents and distributing resources door to door.”

Advocates are coaching them on their rights, including instructions not to respond if agents knock on the door unless shown a warrant signed by a judge. The Democratic mayor has said his city would not cooperate with ICE.

Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told “FOX & friends” on Sunday that the raids were about “enforcing and maintaining the integrity of the system.”

“This is about the rule of law,” Morgan said. “Those individuals who remain here illegally, especially those who’ve received due process more than any other nation in the world would provide someone that came here illegally, to including those with final orders, that there are consequences to those that remain here illegally. That’s what today is about. “

Morgan, the former head of ICE, differed to disclose details about the raids. But he blasted mayors of cities who pushed back against the crackdown, calling their actions “unconscionable.”

“This is about going after individuals here illegally,” he said. “Any city, any law enforcement agency that resists, does not cooperate, they’re actually putting those cities in higher danger.”

ARMED MAN SHOT, KILLED AFTER THROWING INCENDIARY DEVICES AT WASHINGTON ICE DETENTION CENTER

On Friday, ICE Acting Director Matthew Albence said targets were on an “accelerated docket” of immigration court cases for predominantly Central Americans who recently arrived at the U.S. border in unprecedented numbers. Similar operations occurred in 2016 under President Obama and in 2017 under President Trump.

The operation will target people with final deportation orders on 10 major court dockets, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Miami. Albence said that doesn’t mean arrests will be limited to certain areas. Authorities will go where their investigations lead, even if it’s five states away from where the case is filed.

Trump said authorities were “focused on criminals as much as we can before we do anything else.”

“It starts on Sunday and they’re going to take people out and they’re going to bring them back to their countries or they’re going to take criminals out, put them in prison, or put them in prison in the countries they came from,” the president said.

The Obama-era family operation in 2016 resulted in about 10 percent of those targeted being arrested, and the 2017 effort had a lower arrest rate, according to Albence. Other operations that have targeted people with criminal arrest records have yielded arrests rates of about 30%, aided by access to law enforcement databases.

Administration officials have said they are targeting about 2,000 people, which would yield about 200 arrests based on previous crackdowns.

Trump has said on Twitter that his agents plan to arrest millions of immigrants in the country illegally.

St. Louis Cardinals great Bob Gibson is fighting pancreatic cancer.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said the 83-year-old Hall of Famer was diagnosed with the cancer several weeks ago and revealed the news Saturday to the other living Hall of Famers.

Gibson’s longtime agent, Dick Zitzmann, told the Post-Dispatch that Gibson has visited The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and has been hospitalized in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, for the past two weeks. Zitzmann said chemotherapy is likely to begin Monday in Omaha.

The newspaper said the news became public Saturday night when Hall of Famer Jack Morris, broadcasting a Minnesota Twins game, spoke of it, having received his notification. The Cardinals’ front office also was notified.

Gibson was 251-174 with a 2.91 ERA in 17 seasons with the Cardinals from 1959 to 1975. The right-hander led St. Louis to World Series titles in 1964 and 1967, and the National League pennant in 1968. He was 7-2 in nine World Series starts.

Bastille Day in France showcases European military cooperation

The annual Bastille Day celebration in Paris this year was not just about showcasing France, but also military cooperation among European continues.

The flags of 10 countries of the European Intervention Initiative, a joint military pact created last year, led Sunday’s military parade down the Champs Elysees avenue in Paris.

In a message to the French people before the parade, President Emmanuel Macron highlighted the importance of France’s commitment to boost European security.

“Never since the end of the Second World War has Europe been so necessary. The construction of a Europe of defense, in connection with the Atlantic Alliance…is a priority for France. It is the theme of this parade,” he said.

“Acting together and strengthening our ability to act collectively is one of the challenges that the European Intervention Initiative, along with other key European projects, wants to address,” Macron added.

The biggest crowd-pleaser on the display appeared to be a man rocketing through the air on a flyboard device — the invention of French former jet-skiing champion Franky Zapata.

Tensions in the street remain high in Paris following months of demonstrations by the anti-Macron yellow vest protesters who want more help for French workers.

On Sunday, television images showed police grabbing one of the movement’s leaders, Eric Drouet, as he stood on the sidelines of the parade and escorting him away.

At France’s 2017 Bastille Day events, U.S. President Donald Trump, as the guest of honor, was so impressed he ordered a military parade in Washington for America’s July 4 celebrations. Macron will later host a lunch at the Elysee Palace with other European leaders, including Merkel.

Bastille Day commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, one of the key events of the French Revolution. The day has become a national holiday in France.

The European Intervention Initiative is a 10-country coalition of European militaries ready to react to crises. The French-led initiative, which includes Germany, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Estonia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal, was launched last year, according to Reuters.

Suzanne Hadley Gosselin: I felt like the worse mom ever – then I realized this

Westlake Legal Group newmom_istock Suzanne Hadley Gosselin: I felt like the worse mom ever – then I realized this Suzanne Gosselin fox-news/opinion fox-news/lifestyle/parenting fox-news/faith-values/values fox-news/faith-values/faith fox-news/faith-values fox news fnc/opinion fnc e60bdb1b-72b1-5cf1-94b6-56205c01be28 article

A few weeks ago, I had to manage my four young children on my own during a children’s program at church. I planned ahead, giving my children, ages 2 through 8, a detailed briefing on appropriate behavior. I strapped my toddler into his stroller and bribed my oldest (who has autism) with Skittles if he sat quietly. I planted the other two with some friends a few rows ahead.

Despite my best-laid plans, just five minutes into the program, things began to dramatically fall apart. My toddler screamed to be released from his stroller. One of my daughters refused to sit with our friends (but wouldn’t sit with me either). And my oldest stood up and proclaimed, “I need to go on stage!”

After a brief attempt to regain control, I ushered my motley crew out of the auditorium, wishing I could just sink through the floor and disappear. This wasn’t the first time I’d lost the battle with my children’s unruly behavior. And I felt like the worst mom ever.

SUZANNE HADLEY GOSSELIN: WHEN MY KIDS RESCUED A STRAY DOG, I LEARNED AN IMPORTANT LESSON

I guess the reason I feel so awful in situations like these is because my children’s bad behavior seems like a direct reflection on me as their mom. And while some bad behavior from my kids may be the fruit of bad parenting (no parent is perfect), much of it also stems from temperament, maturity and other factors beyond my control.

As much as I wish that my children would behave like obedient little robots (at least in public), God didn’t design them that way.

As I sat outside the auditorium, letting the kids play, I realized something. I have a strong-willed 2-year-old, I have two delightfully spirited daughters (with leadership skills!), and I have a child with special needs. If that isn’t the perfect storm for some embarrassing moments, I don’t know what is. Allowing others to see us at our worst, is simply a part of life.

A few days after the unfortunate meltdown, I took my sons to the grocery store for a quick shopping trip. My oldest son helped push the cart dutifully through the aisles, saying a friendly “hello” to everyone we passed. He even introduced his baby brother to a fellow shopper at the dairy case.

At the checkout lane, strangers smiled at my boys (probably assuming they were always so angelic), and I rolled the cart out of the store with my head held high.

In that moment, I was reminded that my children are a work in progress – just as I am. The highs and lows of parenting, including the embarrassing moments, don’t define me as a mom.

Life is so short. One day soon I’ll look back on these moments and laugh (or marvel that I made it through). Until then, God has entrusted me with four unique blessings, and my job is to steward them well. While they’re still little, I can soak in each moment – good and bad – and allow God to give me joy in them.
