The timing appeared bad, but the ICE raids were planned months in advance.

The Acting DHS Secretary said the timing of the ice raids were “unfortunate,” due to the shooting that occurred in El Paso.

From USA TODAY:

BEDMINSTER, N.J. – President Donald Trump's acting secretary of homeland security expressed regret Sunday for the timing of a raid that netted 680 workers at food processing plants in Mississippi, an operation that took place right after a mass shooting targeting Hispanics.


"The timing was unfortunate," said acting secretary Kevin McAleenan on NBC's "Meet The Press."

McAleenan said the long-planned raid received court approval before the operation that led to the arrests of 680 people, the vast majority of them Hispanic.

"That means those employers are just ignoring the law entirely in what they do," McAleenan said. "That's why a judge gave us a warrant to go after them."

McAleenan said the administration is aware that Hispanics and Latinos feel targeted in the wake of the Aug. 3 mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that claimed at least 22 lives, just days before the raids in Mississippi.
