CBS News has confirmed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says it has scrapped plans to carry out large nationwide immigration raids due to the hurricanes, but "routine operations" will continue.

Late Thursday, ICE issued a statement to CBS News saying that they do not usually comment on future potential law enforcement actions, but that they were adjusting its operational plans in wake of Hurricane Harvey and impending Hurricane Irma.

"Due to the current weather situation in Florida and other potentially impacted areas, along with the ongoing recovery in Texas, [ICE] had already reviewed all upcoming operations and has adjusted accordingly. There is currently no coordinated nationwide operation planned at this time," the statement read. "The priority in the affected areas should remain focused on life-saving and life-sustaining activities."

Watch: Trump's DACA decision puts nearly 1 million in legal limbo

ICE went on to say that its "fugitive operation teams will continue to target and arrest criminal aliens ... who are in violation of our nation's immigration laws, in non-affected areas of the country, as part of routine operations."

Meanwhile, this report comes on the heels of President Trump rescinding an Obama-era program that would protect immigrants brought into America as children. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will be phased out and potentially impacts nearly 780,000 people in the U.S. Further action for DACA recipients, known as Dreamers, now lies with Congress.

But, Mr. Trump tweeted that DACA recipients have "nothing to worry about" despite that his administration is phasing out the program and a series of talking points advised them to self-deport.

Drone view shows continuing cleanup from Harvey .
Hurricane Harvey decimated communities along the Gulf Coast of Texas and left large swaths of the Lone Star State underwater when it roared ashore about three weeks ago. Now those communities are trying to pick up the pieces. In Port Aransas, some structures appear to have dodged total devastation from the outside, but piles of furniture and carpeting growing along the roads are evident of the 5-feet of storm surge that covered the town. To the south end of the seaside community, there's a large pile of debris being created from the various smaller piles around town.
