Trump Promises To Deport ‘Millions’ of Illegal Immigrants Beginning Next Week
The president made the announcement over Twitter, stating, “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
And he included a dig at Democrats while he was at it.
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…….
….long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!
No details of the plan were given.

He wrote: “Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people long before they get to our Southern Border.”
Additionally, Mexico agreed it would send its National Guard to the Mexico-Guatemalan border in an attempt to stop the flood of migrants from Central America headed to the U.S. southern border.
The deal was reached after President Trump threatened to impose a 5 percent blanket tariff on all Mexican goods.
That means it could potentially be a haven for asylum seekers from other countries in Central America, according to Reuters.
Reuters reported that while details have not been released of such a plan, State Department officials have confirmed that a deal is in the works and that talks were being held in Guatemala on Friday.
“They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!” he wrote.
