Despite reports that U.S. immigration agents would be conducting deportation raids in U.S. cities over the weekend, as of Sunday evening there weren't any confirmed arrests in the metro area.
The raids — which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was calling "targeted enforcement"— were going after 2,000 people living in the U.S. without legal documentation.
Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that he would not divulge any operational details of the ICE raids, choosing not to answer a question about whether immigrant families will be separated.
"In the same way I wasn't willing to talk about operational details, that would be an operational detail that I'm not going to comment on," Cuccinelli said.
Cuccinelli emphasized that the agency is prioritizing "violent criminals," not the whole undocumented immigrant population.
