Trump supports immigrant deportation amid growing fears in USTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -“The people that Ice will apprehend have already been ordered to be deported. This means that they have run from the law and run from the courts,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday, adding, “These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country. They broke the law by coming into the country, & now by staying.”

The people that Ice will apprehend have already been ordered to be deported. This means that they have run from the law and run from the courts. These are people that are supposed to go back to their home country. They broke the law by coming into the country, & now by staying.

ICE raids will reportedly start on Sunday in ten cities, namely, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, and San Francisco, which have large immigrant communities.

The immigrant communities are frightful as they embrace themselves for the threatened move.

“The effect is terror,” an rights advocate tells the Los Angeles Times. “We’re getting call after call after call. There is a lot of fear.”

Trump first announced on Monday that ICE raids will begin next week.

"Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in," he tweeted.

Civil rights groups have protested to the move. Applying for asylum in the US is not a crime.

There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the US.
