June 22 (UPI) — President Donald Trump on Saturday said he will delay for two weeks raids of illegal immigrants scheduled to start in 10 cities in an effort to work out a solution in Congress.

The president’s decision came one day after the plans, including targeted cities, were revealed, drawing outrage from mayors in the affected locations.

“At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border,” Trump posted on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. If not, Deportations start!

The upcoming raids, based on cases filed in 10 immigration court locations — Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco — were to target approximately 2,000 people, according to a senior immigration official. The report was confirmed by other media outlets.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, reacting to media reports on the plans, had said on Friday in a statement: “Due to law-enforcement sensitivities and the safety and security of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement personnel, the agency will not offer specific details related to ongoing enforcement operations before the conclusion of those actions.”

But Trump confirmed the plans on Saturday.

“The people that Ice will apprehend have already been ordered to be deported,” Trump tweeted . “This means that they have run from the law and run from the courts. These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country. They broke the law by coming into the country, and now by staying.”

Then, he posted on Twitter: When people come into our Country illegally, they will be DEPORTED!
