The ICE staff was deployed in neighborhoods in 10 major cities across the country in a plan to arrest about 2,000 undocumented migrants. Accordingly, ICE employees will arrest both those with arrest warrants, and undocumented immigrants who happened to meet or inspect by accident, even those who have been in the US for many years, having homes, jobs and children who are US citizens. All expelled cases are based on the records of the local immigration authorities. However, this campaign raises concerns about many families falling apart.             

However, the scope of this campaign is still said to be "more modest" than the number of millions that President Donald Trump committed to arrest and expel when first mentioning this campaign last month. .
