Trump defends planned ICE deportations
President Trump on Saturday defended planned mass deportations carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), amid reports that his administration plans to round up as many as 2,000 immigrant families.
"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 tweeted. "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."
"When people come into our Country illegally, they will be DEPORTED!" he added in a subsequent tweet.
