Trump Kicks Off 2020 Campaign By Announcing ICE Will Be Deporting 'Millions'

If you believe this, I have a wall to sell you...

From NPR:
On the day of his self-declared presidential campaign kickoff, President Trump is threatening to deport "millions" of immigrants in the United States illegally beginning "next week."

But what's known is far less definitive.

The administration is predicting that with increased help from Mexico, it will have more bed space at detention centers. So the administration is planning to prioritize going after recent arrivals who have not been showing up to court, according to an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security.

The enforcement action is not for people who have been in the country long term but is more focused on the people who just got to the country and skipped court dates.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, who is in regular discussions with the administration, said people have been led to believe that if they arrive with a child, they will be able to stay. She said that won't be the case under this new plan.

"It's not like the president just woke up and thought of this idea," Vaughan said. "They've been laying the groundwork for this already. What they've been doing has not been successful, so they're going to be trying something new. And they're going to be focused on people who already have a final order of removal. And they also want people to understand that family cases are on the table."

There are more than 1 million immigrants in the U.S. with orders of deportation who have not been removed, according to an administration official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the policy, noting that "countless" numbers of people are skipping court hearings and "absconding from federal proceedings."
Sounds like a great idea, the only issue is Trump has failed to implement nearly all of his promises on immigration and the situation is actually worse than ever because of the open borders spending bill he signed earlier this year.

If Trump actually deports the million or so people let in illegally under his term, I will support him 100 percent. Until I see actual evidence and concrete action, I'm just going to assume this is campaign rhetoric just like his promise to end birthright citizenship just before the midterms.
