The crackdown on illegal immigrants has begun.
More than 600 have been arrested in the past week. 75% of those were convicted criminals.
President Trump is making good on his promises, and though liberals are fighting him tooth and nail, we seem to be moving forward. Criminals are being deported, the wall along our border is in the works, President Trump is ready to go to court to reinstate his travel ban, and sanctuary cities will no longer be funded by our tax dollars.
The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!

From Democracy Now:
Immigrant communities across the country are on edge after federal immigration agents arrested over 600 people in the past week in the largest raids since Donald Trump became president. Raids were reported in at 11 states, including California, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri and Wisconsin.
Liberal media are reporting that this is no different than the deportations that happened under Obama. They’re trying to take credit away from Donald Trump and say that this is simply routine. But advocates for immigrants have a different story, they say that this is completely different than the deportations that happened under the Obama administration.
The Trump administration isn’t going to be so lenient over illegal immigrants. It’s time that we start enforcing our laws. If they come in the correct way and become a citizen legally, we will welcome them. Conservatives are not xenophobic, they just don’t want tax dollars wasted on people who are here illegally.
