(NationalSentinel) It’s a good thing the federal bureaucracy and American press weren’t as politicized in the 1940s as they are today, otherwise, America would either have lost World War II with the Axis Powers or us and our allies would have suffered millions more casualties.
The plans for D-Day and several other major operations would have been leaked to willing media accomplices in order to ’embarrass’ or ‘thwart’ President Franklin D. Roosevelt the way details about presidential actions, policies, and decisions are leaked today to subvert President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Like his immigration enforcement efforts.
Earlier this week the president himself tweeted that Immigration and Customs Enforcement would begin mass deportations of illegal aliens who have been ordered out of the country by immigration courts but who have refused to leave.
Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people…….

“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” the president tweeted on Monday night.
“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” the president continued, adding that Mexico is now “doing a very good job of stopping people” from entering its country.
Now, some have questioned why the president would publicly announce such raids, and the answer is, perhaps our compassionate commander-in-chief wanted to give those in our country illegally a chance to leave on their own.
Fair enough. But beyond that very public warning, the details of ICE operations would necessarily remain covert so that agents could achieve maximum results for their efforts.
But no. Someone within government leaked to The Washington Post details of the raids which, if the Post leak is correct, will begin on Sunday in major U.S. cities the paper named specifically:
President Trump has directed U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to conduct a mass roundup of migrant families that have received deportation orders, an operation that is likely to begin with predawn raids in major U.S. cities on Sunday, according to three U.S. officials with knowledge of the plans.
The “family op,” as it is referred to at ICE and the Department of Homeland Security, is slated to target up to 2,000 families facing deportation orders in as many as 10 U.S. cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles and other major immigration destinations, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the law enforcement operation. …
ICE has been preparing agents and equipment for the operation, which is expected to unfold across several days starting Sunday morning, the officials said. Discussions about the scope of the operation continued Friday at ICE, DHS and the White House, two officials said.
The agency is planning to use hotel rooms as temporary staging areas to detain parents and children until all the members of a family are together and ready for deportation. Officials also acknowledge that they might arrest individuals they cannot immediately deport — known as “collateral arrests” — and likely will release those people with ankle monitoring devices.
Not only that but our old pal, the seditious Mayor Libby Schaaf of Oakland — who tipped off illegals living in her city prior to an ICE raid last year and drew a lawsuit for it — is pledging to tip them off once more after POTUS Trump’s warning tweet.
“The idea of mass rounding up of people is what violates civil rights,” Schaaf told reporters in a briefing Tuesday. “We have seen it over and over again. This is a frightening threat from the president. I hope it is just more mindless rhetoric as he prepares to announce his re-election bid, but we have got to be prepared.”
As usual, Schaaf — like all American Leftists — has it backward. If there are any civil rights violations being committed here, it’s by people like her who aid and abet illegal acts of sneaking into our country and allowing people who aren’t supposed to be here victimize American citizens (including her voters).
As for whether the leak was punitive against the president, the San Francisco Chronicle provides more evidence. Following the president’s tweet’s ICE wasn’t talking:
ICE officials reportedly told the Washington Post that no operations were planned.
