Trump says removal of illegal immigrants will begin next week

President Trump announced U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will begin the process of deporting millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. next week. “They will be removed as fast as they come in,” Trump said.

In a series of tweets Monday night, Trump blamed congressional Democrats for the border crisis but praised Mexico and Guatemala for ramping up efforts to alleviate the influx of migrants.

Writing on Twitter, Trump said: “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!”

Trump’s proclamation reportedly shocked some ICE officials, who said they were unaware Trump was going to announce enforcement plans via Twitter.
