The Obama administration is planning more raids to deport hundreds of Central American mothers and children in May and June, Reuters reported on Thursday.It is poised to be the largest sweep this year, following a two-day operation in Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina in January. The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) said the announcement means the administration \u0022is turning a blind eye to the many serious due process violations\u0022 that occurred during previous raids.\u0022These military-style raids against mothers and children fleeing violence are reprehensible,\u0022 said NILC executive director Marielena Hincapié. \u0022We are outraged that the Obama administration has once again decided to engage in a PR stunt that only serves to create fear and paralyze everyday life and civic participation in immigrant communities, in our schools, and in workplaces.\u0022\u0022The federal government\u0026#039;s failure to address the violent conditions that are causing women and children to flee in the first place means that these raids are a complete and utter policy failure,\u0022 Hincapié said.According to Reuters, which saw an internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) document, field offices nationwide have been instructed to conduct month-long \u0022surges\u0022 to round up mothers and children who have already been instructed to leave the country, as well as those who entered the country as unaccompanied minors but have since turned 18.Migrants who arrived after January 1, 2014 are the priority targets, an ICE spokesperson told Reuters.Frank Sharry, executive director of the immigration rights organization America\u0026#039;s Voice, also criticized the raid plans and the Obama administration for disregarding how violence in Central America is fueling the displacement of individuals and families. \u0022We are outraged that the Obama administration has once again decided to engage in a PR stunt that only serves to create fear and paralyze everyday life.\u0022—Marielena Hincapié, National Immigration Law Center\u0022There is a refugee crisis in Central America and to deal with it effectively we need to treat it like a refugee crisis,\u0022 Sharry said. \u0022Central American kids and young families are fleeing horrific violence. El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are among the most murderous countries in the world. Incredibly, however, the U.S. government is using deterrence, detention and deportation as its main tools.\u0022The government\u0026#039;s enforcement-based approach \u0022misdiagnoses\u0022 the reasons people are fleeing their home countries, Sharry said. \u0022Those fleeing horrific violence in Central America need to be protected, not deported.\u0022The news come as the U.S. Supreme Court considers the fate of two of President Barack Obama\u0026#039;s own executive programs on immigration, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).Just this week, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights called for the deportation of a woman and her 12-year-old daughter from the US to El Salvador to be halted, saying \u0022their lives and personal integrity would be at risk.\u0022Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders voiced their opposition to the raids, which Sanders described as \u0022the painful and inhumane business of locking up and deporting families who have fled horrendous violence in Central America and other countries.\u0022\u0022I urge President Obama to use his executive authority to protect families by extending Temporary Protective Status for those who fled from Central America,\u0022 Sanders said.
