In a recent rally in South Carolina, former US President Donald Trump announced his plans for massive deportations if he is re-elected. He stated, “From day one I will support the entire open borders policy of the Biden administration and we will begin the largest national deportation operation in the history of the United States.” Trump emphasized that there is no other choice and called the rejection of the legislative package a great victory for conservatives.
The $118 billion legislative package failed in the US Senate due to resistance from Republicans. The package included changes to immigration policy and a compromise negotiated between Democrats and Republicans that linked foreign aid to US border security. However, Trump rejected the package and put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let it fail. As a result, the upper house is now considering a package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy.
Trump has openly opposed immigration reform and has been vocal about his intention to use border policy as a campaign issue in the upcoming presidential election. He has also stated that he will not negotiate with Democrats on this issue and will continue to push for stricter border policies. Despite opposition from some Republicans, Trump’s stance on immigration remains firm, and he continues to call for massive deportations if he is re-elected.
