ABC NEWS: TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER COULD MEAN DEPORTATION FOR 11 MILLION ILLEGALS
ABC News reports that the illegal immigrant population in the United States could face deportation as a result of the executive order President Donald Trump signed on Wednesday, according to legal experts. A 2014 Pew Research Center study estimated the number of illegals in the U.S. to be at least 11 million.
But Trump’s executive order appears to extend beyond this.
“Many aliens who illegally enter the United States and those who overstay or otherwise violate the terms of their visas present a significant threat to national security and public safety,” the order states. “This is particularly so for aliens who engage in criminal conduct in the United States.”
