Speak Out: Deportation threat

President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions of people living in the United States illegally ahead of formally announcing his reelection bid.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement next week will “begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump said in a pair of tweets Monday night.

• As long as we start with his “illegals” first I’m cool with it. I’d hate to see my neighbors deported while their cousins are still working for him. — Justin Neal Capps

• Where the heck do you think you all come from? Your ancestors were immigrants! Maybe Trump should start with you! — Wan Fisher

• My ancestors came here and legally became Americans. They worked hard to help build this nation too. — Tommy Lee

•We came from legal immigration – which we have no issue with. If we removed illegal immigration, we’d still, as a nation, be the largest destination of immigrants. But don’t let that fact distract you. — Chris Werner

• Mine came legally as well. They didn’t come illegally, neglect laws, and ignore regulations to become legal citizens of this country. We welcome individuals from other countries, just do it the proper way. — Michelle Hess

• Those who will be deported are those who failed to complete their immigration process or those who failed to show up to court, those who agreed for voluntary departure and failed to leave. — Wendy Chambers

• What! He wants to enforce the laws? Oh, wait, what was his oath of office? Hey, I think all of Congress takes the same oath. — Dave McGuigan

• Some people don’t seem to have a grasp on the difference between legal and illegal. — Kathleen Woolridge

• Awesome! Looking forward to someone coming to me and asking me for my papers. Just remember folks…. y’all came from somewhere and so did your ancestors. — Maria Pilipina Dias

• If all the undocumented people get thrown out, Trump would actually have to hire American workers. — Valerie Schaeffer

• Nah, part of this whole thing is the rules will never apply to the 1%. Your lawn care bill will triple but they’ll have their Byzantine visa exceptions that are easy to follow with a team of in-house immigration lawyers. And if they break the law they never get punished. Just the workers and other little people. — Kimberly Hoffman

• Our ancestors did not come for free everything, they came and built a country. — Terry Duffy

• Trump 2020. Finally getting the illegals out of the country!! And I welcome anyone who disagrees to leave with them! — Sharon Hill

• Yeah right; I’ll believe it when I see it. He’s been looking at the poll numbers of hypothetical matchups with each of the leading Democratic contenders, so he’s going back to the original playbook that got him elected in the first place and that he’s all but forgotten about.— John Daliani
