US to begin deportation of immigrants – Trump

3651

The United States is set to begin removing millions of people living in the country illegally, beginning from next week.

President Donald Trump revealed this in a series of tweets on Monday night, which coincidentally was also the eve of the formal declaration of his re-election bid.

Mr. Trump said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would next week “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,” he wrote.

Trump also added that Guatemala is preparing to sign a safe third country deal. This means that migrants entering Guatemalan territory would have to apply for refugee status there, not in the United States.

The US is facing a surge in migrant arrivals from Guatemala and other impoverished Central American countries which are plagued by gang violence.

Trump has called it “an invasion,” and has made the fight against illegal migration a central plank of his administration.
