(Washington Examiner) With U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement expected to conduct a nation-wide roundup of illegal immigrant families to deport them as soon as possible, some outspoken Democrats in Congress are issuing warnings to them through social media.

The New York Times reported the 2,000 that are being targeted have been ordered to be deported, some of them because they failed to appear in court, but continue to remain in the country illegally.

In tweets sent by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, they said they want to make sure people know their rights if ICE agents appear at their homes this Sunday.
