Trump Reveals Plan For ‘Largest Domestic Deportation Operation in American History’
Ryan King, Washington Examiner, March 5, 2023
Former President Donald Trump unveiled plans for a mass deportation should he win a second term as president in 2024 during his Conservative Political Action Conference keynote.
“Under my leadership, we will use all necessary state, local, federal, and military resources to carry out the largest domestic deportation operation in American history,” Trump told the CPAC audience Saturday. “We will pick them up, and we will throw them out of our country, and there will be no questions asked.”
“The first reconciliation bill I will sign will be for a massive increase in border patrol and a colossal increase in the number of ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] deportation officers,” Trump declared. “Other countries are emptying out their prisons, insane asylums, and mental institutions and sending all of their problems right into their dumping ground.”
“I will ask every state and federal agency to identify every known or suspected gang member in America and every one of them that is here illegally … we will pick them up, and we will throw them out,” Trump added.
