Trump Is Building A Deportation Army – The Rounding Up Has Begun


You probably don’t need a news story to tell you this, but Donald Trump doesn’t want anyone who isn’t like him in the U.S., unless those different people buy-in to his racist, classicist, and often sexist views. To that end, however, Trump supporters who bought into he’d never do that to my family/me garbage are now facing the music that plays as their loved ones are detained and/or deported.

Now, it looks like in addition to banning some groups and working to build a wall to keep others out, the Trump administration is moving full steam ahead with assembling a force they say will make good on Trump’s promise to keep undocumented people out of the U.S. The Washington Post published an internal Department of Homeland Security assessment that shows that the agency has found over 30,000 new beds to house yet-to-be detained undocumented immigrants, started talks with a plethora of state and local police departments that may receive immigration enforcement authority and determined where Trump’s Mexican border wall will probably begin,.

The Department is also looking at ways to expedite the hiring process so that they may employ hundreds of new officers. Sinking to a new low of ethics requirements, the Trump administration is considering eliminating the existing polygraph and physical fitness tests currently required by applicants.

Immigration law experts see the steps the Trump administration has taken as a sure sign that mass deportation and aspects of a police state are imminent. Marielena Hincapié, Executive Director of the National Immigration Law Center suggested:

“This is an administration that very much is interested in setting up that mass deportation infrastructure and creating the levers of a police state. In these documents, you have more proof and evidence that they’re planning to carry it out.”
