Trump threatens to deport millions starting next week as he prepares to announce 2020 bid

Trump threatens to deport millions starting next week as he prepares to announce 2020 bidDonald Trump has promised to begin deporting “millions” of people living in the US illegally, on the eve of the formal announcement of his 2020 presidential re-election campaign, Writing on Twitter late on Monday night, the president, who is seeking to portray himself as a strong and confident candidate to an unconvinced electorate said those entering the US would be “removed as fast as they come in” and said US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would begin removals next week.He also praised Mexican efforts to prevent illegal border crossings.“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” the president wrote. “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!”Mr Trump campaigned heavily on immigration during his 2016 presidential bid, and is expected to use similar tactics to fire up support among his base ahead of next year’s election.> 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) > > 18 June 2019But despite his campaign talk of building a wall which he said Mexico would pay for and of stopping “bad hombres” coming into the US, immigration from countries south of the US border has risen during his presidency.Mr Trump recently threatened to hit Mexico with tariffs on goods if the country didn’t improve border enforcement.The move prompted Mexican authorities to dispatch their national guard and step-up coordination and enforcement efforts.A Mexican official, who briefed reporters in Washington on Monday, appeared to claim the efforts had resulted in an overnight success. He said US Border Patrol arrested 2,600 people per day after the agreement was struck on 7 June, according to Politico. This would represent a fall of almost a half from the average of 4,300 border arrests every day in May.Mr Trump is due to announce his 2020 presidential re-election bid on Tuesday.

House Dem. Threatens Trump Officials with ‘Incarceration’ for Refusing to Honor Subpoenas

House Dem. Threatens Trump Officials with ‘Incarceration’ for Refusing to Honor SubpoenasRepresentative Gerry Connolly (D., Va.), a member of the House Oversight Committee, said Friday that the panel might resort to the threat of incarceration should Trump administration officials continue to ignore its numerous subpoena-backed requests for documents.“We're going to resist, and if a subpoena is issued and you're told you must testify, we will back that up,” Connolly told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. “And we will use any and all power in our command to make sure it's backed up — whether that's a contempt citation, whether that's going to court and getting that citation enforced, whether it's fines, whether it's possible incarceration. We will go to the max to enforce the constitutional role of the legislative branch of government.”The president and his advisers have said explicitly that they will not yield to Democrats' demands that officials testify before the Oversight Committee regarding the issuance of security clearances, the formation of the so-called zero-tolerance immigration-enforcement policy, and other matters.White House adviser Stephen Miller, former security-clearance official Carl Kline, and John Gore, a deputy assistant attorney general in the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, have thus far all refused to come before the panel.Connolly emphasized in particular the Committee's desire to hear from Miller, whom he called Trump's "immigration whisperer," regarding what measures the administration plans to take to harden the southern border in the wake of Secretary of Homeland Security Kierstjen Nielsen's departure.“We want to hear from him: What is your thinking, what is it you've been advising the president, and where is it you think you're going to be taking us as a country with these kinds of policies and personnel changes?” Connolly said of Miller.
