[TIME’S UP] “Feds Planning to Deport 1 Million Immigrants”, Says Trump Official
Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services said that the ICE is preparing to deport about 1 million immigrants.
President Trump had announced last month that they would soon be deporting those who have come over illegally.
“I don’t call them raids. I say they came in illegally and we’re bringing them out legally. They’ll be starting fairly soon. We’re removing people that have come in, all of these people over the years that have come in illegally, we are removing them and bringing them back to their country.”
The President even delayed the operation to deport, but that time is now up.
According to The New York Post,
They’re ready to just perform their mission, which is to go and find and detain and then deport the proximity one million people who have final removal orders. They’ve been all the way through the due process and have final removal orders,” Cuccinelli said during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” ” Who among those will be targeted for this particular effort, or not, is really just information kept within ICE at this point.”
While saying the pool is “enormous,” Cuccinelli walked back the number moments later when told reports said the number would be in the “thousands.”
“I’m just pointing out that the pool of those with final removal orders … is enormous. And it’s important to note, here we are talking about ICE doing its job as if it’s special. And really this should be going on on a rolling basis for ICE and they’ve been interfered with effectively and held up by the politics of Washington,” said Cuccinelli, who oversees the agency that administers the country’s immigration system.
Of course, the liberals are in an uproar about this but where was the uproar under Obama?
Obama deported more immigrants on a yearly basis than Trump has, but no one wants to mention that at all because Obama was their messiah.
