Dead Serious With Deportation Of Illegals, Trump Likens Enforcement To A Military Operation

Proving that his administration is deadly serious in its crackdown efforts against illegal immigrants, President Donald Trump has described his government's deportation moves as a "military operation" to rid the country of "really bad dudes."

President Trump made such declaration during his meeting earlier with manufacturing CEO's as he also emphasized that the deportations of the bad guys referring to illegal immigrants especially those with criminal records- will be " at a rate nobody has seen before."

The President Trump administration's immigration enforcement policies can potentially result in millions of deportations as the Department of Homeland Security guidelines has dramatically increased the figures on immigrants who are considered priorities for deportation. Law enforcement agencies have also been directed to hire thousands of new agents who will be tasked to apprehend people living in the U.S. illegally. Local police and sheriffs' offices were also enlisted to be part of the deportation efforts.

President Trump's officials also took pains in underscoring, too, that the priority for deportation would be those criminal undocumented immigrants. Trump also discussed gang violence, drugs, cases of rape going around the country's borders and he said that many of the perpetrators of such crimes are people who are in the U.S. illegally. The President also made the warning that if the same illegals with criminal records or potential for crimes may think they are tough, they should know that they can never be tougher than the American people. Under the immigration policies, any immigrant who is convicted and charged or suspected of a crime is considered a priority for deportation.

While President Trump has likened his administration's immigration enforcement policies to a military operation for its strict implementation but the military is not really involved. Current guidelines did not adopt a draft plan to enlist National Guard troops to go after undocumented immigrants in almost a dozen states.
