President Trump took to Twitter to announce that ICE will begin the process of removing millions of illegal immigrants from the United States.
….long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!

President Trump on Monday night tweeted that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin deporting “millions” of undocumented immigrants next week.
“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in,” Trump tweeted.
He added that Mexico is “doing a very good job of stopping people long before they get to our Southern Border” and noted that Guatemala is “getting ready” to sign an agreement under which potential refugees would be required to apply for benefits in the country where they first land
“Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement,” Trump added.
No major ICE operations have been announced but reports indicated that major operations like this usually are not announced in advance.
