In a stunning announcement at a rally in South Carolina, former US President Donald Trump has revealed 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.”
This revelation comes after the legislative package worth $118 billion 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 also linked foreign aid to US border security. However, Trump’s rejection of the package has led to current resistance from Republicans, who are now considering a package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy.
Trump has openly opposed the reform package and put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let it fail. Despite this setback, he remains confident that he can win back support among voters by using border policy as a campaign issue in the upcoming presidential election.
