    Trump says millions in U.S. illegally to be deported starting next week

    But it probably won't be "millions." I don't think the agencies involved knew or expected Trump to tweet about it in advance.

    It's an interesting week. A possible war with Iran, Trump's birthday and the launching of his re-election campaign - and an upcoming roundup.

    And of course, if we point out the obvious parallels between America today and Germany circa 1935, the Trumpettes and Usual Suspects will shriek "Godwins! He hasn't murdered 6 million people! They're nothing alike!"

    ... because obviously, the time to worry about the similarities is AFTER 6 million people die, rather than noticing the early parallels and stepping up to prevent it.

    What a state of affairs when the President making outrageous claims like that is the BEST case scenario!

    I saw "Trump tweets that millions..." and I was sure the rest was going be "...now living will never die".

    Well, the other shoe that's likely to drop in all this is that there will be a sharp reaction from the immigrant communities which are being targeted. There could be a loud outcry, possibly even riots.

    Not to mention that a massive round up like they're talking about risks the possibility they could actually arrest US citizens by mistake. Everybody should make sure they're carrying their papers.

    Any American who think their borders should remain open to allow illegal immigration, is a fool.
    Any American who think that the 3rd world can over run the American citicens who created the greatest country on Earth, are stupid.
    Anyone who claim the above, are not an American, but blood sucking socialist ticks who dont want to work for a living.
    Build the wall and save the western civilisation!

    Just looks like rhetoric to me. I have not seen anything from a relevant agency regarding workload or major changes in policy which would produce such numbers. After all if the deportation orders were already issued isn't this really just procedure rather than anything special?

    No one's making such a claim, so turn down the sanctimonious outrage, you're at an 11, we could use you at about a 3

    Just had a thought, maybe he's cracking down on illegal immigrants because it's cheaper than a divorce? Get rid of the used trophy wife and her inlaws in one swoop, and have the government pay for it?

    Trump being well known for not making major policy decisions and announcements until after thoroughly discussing and preparing their implementation with the relevant departments :rolleyes:

    LOL. Agreed. In fact, I think it probably irked them since telegraphing such a plan wouldn't be in their best interests. Such roundups are done as a surprise, not giving everyone a week's notice.

    Speaking of which; all of Trump's rhetoric has resulted an the increase of illegals due to coyotes saying "Hurry up, this is your last chance!!!"

    Agreed in interesting week. All in all, I wish Melania had just given Donnie a handy. Maybe he'd have been less inclined to say stupid crap.

    Every national government has a responsibility to maintain the security of its citizens and control who enters the country.

    That said, all of the heated rhetoric coming from Trump and the Trumpsters is just fear-mongering. The United States of America is a lot more robust than a few immigrants or a single President. Remember all the fear-mongering about Obama? Are we now the People's Republic of America? Of course not. It's just heated rhetoric fanned by liars and sheeple.

    According to NBC News this morning, they said that when they contacted ICE leadership on this, the latter had not received any notification of any such a plan from anyone in the White House.

    I don't see anyone making such a claim here at RF, plus even the Dem leaders and the vast majority of them in congress have made it clear that they are not for open borders.

    But then if one only gets their "news" from the likes of Fox, Breitbart, Limbaugh, and other such sources, they probably wouldn't know that.
