CLOVIS (KSMX) – A nationwide immigration enforcement operation targeting people who are in the US illegally is expected to begin this weekend after it was postponed last month by President Donald Trump, according to two administration officials and immigrant activists. This operation would target people with final deportation orders, including families.

The sweep remains in fluctuation and could possibly begin later, according to officials who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The operation is similar to ones conducted regularly since 2003 that often-produced hundreds of arrests. While it is unusual to target families, as opposed to immigrants with criminal histories, it is not unheard of. Both the Obama and Trump administrations have targeted families in previous operations.

Last month, Trump announced on Twitter that the sweep would mark the beginning of an effort to deport millions of people who are in the country illegally.
