Trump’s Executive Order could deport more than 11 illegal immigrants. When Jeff Sessions was sworn-in today, he stated “We need to end this lawlessness that threatens the public safety, pulls down the wages of working Americans.”
The Washington Examiner reported: The bulk of illegal immigrants would be eligible for deportation under President Trump’s executive orders, not just those who went on to commit additional crimes, according to a new expert analysis. Overall, more than 11 million of the estimated 13 million-14 million illegals in the United States come under the deportation language signed by Trump, according to the Center for Immigration Studies. In the latest post on the CIS page, Ronald W. Mortensen, a retired career U.S. Foreign Service Office, highlighted three key provisions in Executive Order 13768 that prioritize illegal immigrants for removal. They are: — Those who “have committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense.” He said that includes entering the U.S. illegally and not through an official border crossing zone.
