Trump to Illegal Immigrant Gangs: ‘We Will Deport You’

The president promised that illegal immigrant gang members would be sent out of the country.

President Trump promised at an police event in New York on Friday that illegal immigrants who joined gangs would face deportation.

“I have a simple message for every gang member and criminal alien that are threatening so violently our people: we will find you. We will arrest. We will jail you. And we will deport you,” Trump told the members of law enforcement gathered.

Arrests of illegal immigrants have gone up under the Trump administration, but deportations have fallen due to a backlog in immigration courts.
