Kirsters’ Opinion| President Donald Trump announced on Monday that United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be starting the process to remove illegal immigrants who have come into the country illicitly.
“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,” the President wrote in a tweet.
“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!” he added.

Recall back to February when the President declared a national emergency in order to move Defense Department funding to go towards a border wall.
Every single month, we are witnessing around 100,000 illegal immigrants coming into the country with false asylum claims. They are then released into our communities by Border Patrol agents.
According to the Gateway Pundit, “Hundreds of illegal aliens from Ebola-stricken Democratic Republic of Congo were dumped in the streets of San Antonio, Texas a couple of weeks ago. ICE also maintains a special housing facility for transgender illegal aliens — on taxpayer dime of course. Americans have had it! If Trump removes millions of illegal aliens and closes the border, he will win 2020 in a landslide.”
The Washington Post reports:
Large-scale ICE enforcement operations are typically kept secret to avoid tipping off targets. In 2018, Trump and other senior officials threatened the mayor of Oakland, Calif., with criminal prosecution for alerting city residents that immigration raids were in the works.
Trump and his senior immigration adviser, Stephen Miller, have been prodding Homeland Security officials to arrest and remove thousands of family members whose deportation orders were expedited by the Justice Department this year as part of a plan known as the “rocket docket.”
In April, acting ICE director Ronald Vitiello and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were ousted after they hesitated to go forward with the plan, expressing concerns about its preparation, effectiveness and the risk of public outrage from images of migrant children being taken into custody or separated from their families.
