“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump wrote in a tweet on Monday night.
“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he added. He also praised Mexican efforts to prevent illegal border crossings. There are an estimated 12 million immigrants who are in the United States illegally. An administration official said the effort would focus on the more than 1 million people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges but remain at large in the country. Trump’s tweet came as group of undocumented immigrants fired from Trump’s ritzy golf clubs in New York and New Jersey planned to crash his 2020 campaign in Florida.
However different opinions exist. “No one knows better than Trump himself that immigrants are hardworking individuals who support a multitude of industries across the country, including his restaurants, golf courses, wineries and hotels,” said lawyer Anibal Romero. Mr Trump campaigned heavily on immigration during his 2016 presidential bid, and is expected to use similar tactics to fire up support among his base ahead of next year’s election.
