Trump says U.S. agency will begin removing millions of illegal immigrants

ICE to remove undocumented immigrants by millionsPresident Donald Trump said on Monday that U.S. authorities would begin next week removing millions of immigrants who are in the United States illegally.

“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump tweeted, referring to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. “They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he said. He did not offer specifics.

There are an estimated 12 million immigrants who are in the United States illegally, mainly from Mexico and Central America.


Trump administration to house migrant children at Fort Sill, which once served as a Japanese internment camp

Fort Sill Internment CenterThe Trump administration plans to house up to 1,400 unaccompanied migrant children in an Oklahoma military base that once served as a Japanese internment camp during World War II.

The base, Fort Sill, held 350 Japanese Americans following the 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor. Over 120,000 American citizens of Japanese descent were sent to internment camps during WWII over perceived security concerns.

The move, which was first reported by the Associated Press, was confirmed to USA TODAY by Evelyn Stauffer, spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families (ACF).

another child dies in custody of border patrol

A 16-year-old Guatemalan boy died Monday in immigration custody in south Texas, the fifth migrant child to die since December, Customs and Border Protection said.

The teenager, who was not identified by authorities, was apprehended after crossing the border May 13 near Hidalgo, Texas, CBP said in a statement posted Monday. The boy was transferred from the Rio Grande Valley Sector’s Central Processing Center to the Weslaco Border Patrol Station on Sunday, the statement said.

He was then due to be placed with the Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency that oversees care of unaccompanied or separated migrant children after they are initially processed by immigration authorities, the statement said.


Trump Officials Identify 1,700 More Children Who May Have Been Separated From Parents

Trump officials identify 1700 more children separated at borderTrump administration officials have revealed that an additional 1,712 migrant children may have been separated from their parents while coming into America.

The children entered the country before President Donald Trump enacted his “zero tolerance” policy a year ago, resulting in the separation of at least 2,800 children from their parents.

There is “preliminary indication of separation” involving these children, Commander Jonathan White of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps said in federal court in San Diego Friday, CNN reported.

Even more children could eventually be identified. White said Friday his team has reviewed 13,000 files out of a total of some 47,000.


Trump administration has separated hundreds of children from their migrant families since 2018

Separating migrant childrenFrom the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to the Southern California coast, the Trump administration carries on in separating migrant families at rates that alarm immigration attorneys and advocates, even though a federal judge has barred family separations as a systemic policy.

Separations have slowed significantly since a federal judge in San Diego ordered the administration to halt the practice in June 2018. But U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw allowed separations to persist in rare, specific circumstances, and the Trump administration has exploited those openings at a worrying clip, according to groups that work with migrants along the border.

"We are alarmed," said Jennifer Nagda, policy director at the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, a Chicago-based national human rights group. "In March and April, we again saw a notable increase."


Emails show Trump admin had 'no way to link' separated migrant children to parents

Email shows Trump administration kept no records connecting kids to parentsOn the same day the Trump administration said it would reunite thousands of migrant families it had separated at the border with the help of a "central database," an official was admitting privately the government only had enough information to reconnect 60 parents with their kids, according to emails obtained by NBC News.

"[I]n short, no, we do not have any linkages from parents to [children], save for a handful," a Health and Human Services official told a top official at Immigration and Customs Enforcement on June 23, 2018. "We have a list of parent alien numbers but no way to link them to children."

n the absence of an effective database, the emails show, officials then began scrambling to fill out a simple spreadsheet with data in hopes of reuniting as many as families as they could.
