President Trump has ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to round up nearly 2,000 undocumented migrant families with deportation orders in 10 major U.S. cities starting Sunday morning, according to the Washington Post.

Why it matters: The large-scale sweep, termed "family op," is part of Trump's broad immigration plan. ICE agents only have the last-known addresses of the migrant families, and White House and ICE officials anticipate many "collateral arrests by finding foreigners living in the country illegally at or near the target locations," the Post reports.

Details:

  • Targeted cities include: Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City and San Francisco.
  • ICE intends to hold parents and children in hotel rooms until families are reunited before deportation, according to the Washington Post. Those who can't be deported immediately may be released with ankle bracelets.

The big picture: The White House is communicating directly with Acting ICE Director Mark Morgan — cutting Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan out of the conversation, according to the Washington Post.

  • McAleenan had implored ICE to carry out a more direct operation, focusing on just 150 families and warning that these sweeping "roundups" could separate children from their parents.

What they're saying:

  • “We’re enforcing the law against all demographics, and we’re trying to send a message to the family units that don’t come here and don’t put your life at risk, your children’s life at risk,” Morgan told ABC News.
  • Morgan told reporters this week that, “We’re at the point right now where we have no other choice but to use our interior enforcement statutory authority to identify where these individuals are and remove them," per the Post.

Between the lines: Trump tweeted earlier this week about imminent ICE sweeps, taking the surprise element out of the strategy, which immigration enforcement officials typically try to avoid so as not to tip off targets.

A few officials told the Washington Post they believe the president is publicizing the "operation for political purposes as he begins his reelection bid."

Meanwhile, ICE funds are running low, which could mean the agency will need the cooperation of local officials to carry out the arrests, reports CNBC.

But, but, but: For the raids taking place in so-called sanctuary cities, local law enforcement may not cooperate with ICE detention requests or to share information.

  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said she instructed local police to "terminate" ICE's access to the city's database relating to federal immigration and enforcement activities, according to NBC 5.

The Biden administration said it's "working with" fuel pipeline operator Colonial Pipeline to try and restart operations after a ransomware attack took it offline.

Why it matters: Friday night's cyberattack is "the most significant, successful attack on energy infrastructure" known to have occurred in the U.S., notes energy researcher Amy Myers Jaffe, per Politico. A regional emergency

U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan expressed "serious concerns" Sunday to his Israeli counterpart about "violent confrontations" in Jerusalem and planned evictions of Palestinian families from their homes in the city's east, per a White House statement.

Driving the news: More than 250 Palestinians and several Israeli police officers have been wounded since Friday. Israeli police have used tear gas, stun grenades, water cannons and rubber bullets on protesters, who've thrown "rocks and water bottles" at officers, per NPR. The violence continued Sunday night, AP notes.

Exclusive: GLAAD finds top social media sites "categorically unsafe"

The leading social media sites — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube — are all "categorically unsafe" for LGBTQ people, according to a new study from GLAAD, the results of which were revealed Sunday on "Axios on HBO."

The big picture: GLAAD had planned to give each of the sites a grade as part of its inaugural social media index, but opted not to give individual grades this year after determining all the leading sites would receive a failing grade.
