To stanch the flow of illegal migrants, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is preparing a national operation to deport Central American families in the U.S. who have evaded removal orders, according to a government official with knowledge of the plan, reports WSJ.
Raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a DHS unit, would begin in January and target hundreds of families that entered the U.S. illegally and who have ignored a final order to leave the country, said the official. Such an order is issued by a judge in immigration court.
The number of families showing up at the southwest border has begun to swell in recent months as gang-related crime grips El Salvador and Honduras.
