Trump Promises ‘Largest Domestic Deportation Operation’ In U.S. History
Former President Donald Trump promised an expanded travel ban and the “largest domestic deportation operation” in U.S. history if he is re-elected president in 2024.
Trump made the promises during a campaign rally in Dubuque, Iowa, on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. He blasted President Joe Biden’s record on the border and called on congressional Republicans to take action to stop his policies, vowing that each of Biden’s “open borders” policies would be terminated by Trump “immediately” upon returning to Washington.
“I will immediately terminate every open borders policy of the Biden administration and follow the Dwight D. Eisenhower model,” Trump said in Dubuque, Iowa. “We’ll carry out the largest domestic deportation operation in American history.”
The former president promised to invoke the Alien Enemies Act to remove known and suspected gang members, saying that the U.S. has “tremendous” numbers of drug dealers and cartel members from the “worst gangs” in the world, including MS-13. “We took them out by the thousands, thousands and thousands of people we took out, and then the election got rigged,” Trump said of his first term.
Trump indicated that part of his plan includes directing troops, as well as law enforcement officers from the DEA, ATF, FBI, and DHS to enforce the laws at the border.
“I’ll make clear that we must use any and all resources needed to stop the invasion, including moving thousands of troops currently stationed overseas, guarding other people’s borders,” Trump told the crowd. “We guard other people’s borders, but we don’t guard our own.”
“I will bring back the travel ban and expand it even further to keep Radical Islamic Terrorists out of our country,” Trump said. “I will also use existing federal law to deny entry to all communists and Marxists to the United States. Those who join our country must love our country—and we are going to keep foreign Christian-hating communists, Marxists, and socialists the hell out of America.”
