Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump responded to reports that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to deport hundreds of illegal immigrants from the country next year.
The Hill reports that the raid by the DHS will be “the first large-scale deportation attempt since tens of thousands fled violence in Central America.”
Trump has made illegal immigration his top priority during his presidential campaign, vowing to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it.
“They’re sending people who have a lot of problems,” Trump stated about illegal immigration during his campaign launch. “They bring in drugs, they bring in crime, they’re rapists. I assume some are good people.”
