ICE Director: There’s No Population Of Illegal Aliens Which Is Off The Table

Are you here in the United States unlawfully? The ICE director has a message for you (emphasis mine)

(Fox News) There could be as many as 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States and 400,000 could be deported this year, according to the acting ICE director.

Thomas Homan said the number could be even higher, but no one in the country illegally should be “comfortable” right now.

Speaking to Neil Cavuto, Homan said those who cross the border illegally can no longer assume no one is looking for them.

“[President Trump] basically told [us] you can now do your job, you will enforce laws on your books. There’s no population of alien that’s off the table anymore and we’ve been waiting on that for a decade now,” said Homan, noting that illegal immigrants who pose a threat to public safety will always be a higher priority.

Homan said if you enter the U.S. illegally, you have committed a crime and the law will be enforced “without apology.” He also delivered a stern message to the MS-13 street gang in a Daily Caller interview.

“My gang is bigger than theirs and we are going to take them out,” he said, adding that the goal is to make good “as much as we can” on President Trump’s promise to arrest and/or deport these gang members.

It really is a simple concept: anyone who is unlawfully present in the United States can be picked up and subject to deportation orders at any time, regardless of who they are, what their age is, or how they came to the country. Every illegal has their own sob story, designed to bring out the squishes in defense of allowing the illegal to stay in the country. Well, lots of legal residents have their sob stories and excuses as well, as to why they committed a crime, and do not want to be sent to jail. Tough for both classes.

What this does is create fear for those who are here illegally, and, more importantly, creates fear for those who want to come illegally/overstay their visas. This helps reduce the flow of illegals and causes lots of illegals to self deport. If the number is drastically reduced, then perhaps the U.S. can find some sort of accommodation for some who are here illegally. Citizenship should be off the table for most, unless they want to earn it through tough methods like going through the full citizenship method, or serve for a good chunk in the military.
