ICE Plans to Target 2,000 Undocumented Immigrants in New Deportation Operation

ICE Plans to Target 2,000 Undocumented Immigrants in New Deportation OperationU.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin an operation Sunday targeting over 2,000 undocumented immigrants who have received deportation orders, according to reports.The operation will last several days and target families in up to ten U.S. cities, including those with large immigrant populations such as Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, and Miami. Agents plan to use hotel rooms to hold undocumented individuals until all the members of their family are together, at which time they will be deported.Acting ICE head Mark Morgan stressed that the U.S. must send a message to potential immigrants that bringing a child into the country does not grant you immunity.“Do not risk it. Do not pay the cartels an exorbitant amount of money, because once you receive due process and get a final order, you will be removed,” Morgan said. “The message has gotten out that if you bring a kid, nothing will ever happen to you. We need to make sure we’re sending the message that will not be tolerated any more.”Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan has also suggested an effort to more specifically target about 150 families who were given attorneys but fled the legal process.Despite McAleenan's recommendation that immigration resources be directed toward the crisis at the southern border, President Trump has made the interior raid a priority and announced the upcoming operation earlier this week.“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump wrote on Monday. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”“I don’t want to send ICE agents to their workplace,” Morgan said of the plans for mass arrests. “I don’t want to send ICE agents to their home. I don’t want to send ICE agents to try and track them down and apprehend them in their communities and town. But we’ve applied due process. We’ve tried to work with them.”

Polo club frequented by Prince William and Harry in row with neighbours over plans to double capacity

Polo club frequented by Prince William and Harry in row with neighbours over plans to double capacityA polo club frequented by the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex is embroiled in a planning row with neighbours over plans to double its capacity to 10,000 people. Residents believe the proposal will bring huge crowds that will cause extra noise and blight the area, and have complained to the council. The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club in Winkfield submitted the plans to the Bracknell Forest Council licensing panel. A decision is yet to be made. Yet one resident fumed: "I object to this application on the grounds that increasing the capacity of the premises is likely to have a negative impact on the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective. "Because a larger audience requires greater sound volume to penetrate both the greater area and the greater hubbub of chatter by the people attending. "We can hear the noise from their entertainments and are disturbed by it at night even though we live over half a mile away." Another said there would be a "significant increase" in traffic as well as the "major increase" in noise. In particular they said it would be a problem when loud music bands play on long summer nights after the polo. Prince Charles became a patron of the 220 acre polo club – just a stones throw from Windsor Castle – after it opened in 1985. This then led to both his sons playing regularly there. Just last July the Duke of Sussex shared a passionate kiss with his new wife, the Duchess of Sussex, after a game. He scored twice as his team won 5-4. The council panel was set to make a decision last night [Thurs]. It currently has an alcohol licence and can play music until 2am.

Germany, UK warn Iran over uranium plans as EU urges caution

Germany, UK warn Iran over uranium plans as EU urges cautionGermany and Britain on Monday warned Tehran not to breach uranium stockpile limits set by the 2015 nuclear deal, as the EU’s diplomatic chief dismissed Iranian threats as “political dialectics”. Iran set a 10-day countdown on Monday to exceed the 300-kilogram limit set on its enriched uranium stocks, dealing another blow to the crumbling nuclear accord signed by Tehran and six international powers. The EU has battled to save the agreement since US President Donald Trump withdrew and reimposed sanctions, but Iran said it would step back from exceeding the 300-kg limit on June 27 only if “other parties live up to their commitments”.
