Trump Vows To Deport 'Millions Of Illegal Aliens' In Tweet
President Trump announced via Twitter last night that Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin massive deportations next week. The target? Immigrants who have been found by a federal court to be in the country illegally.
Trump said that illegal aliens will be quote "removed as fast as they come in."
Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2019
But does ICE have the resources to deport millions? What impact will it have on future illegal immigration?
