When will the Trump Administration deport a lot of immigrants?
The Trump administration has promised to deport tens of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally in the next six months.
But how many people are in this group?
A recent survey from the Migration Policy Institute found the undocumented population of the U.S. reached a record high of 9.5 million people in 2020.
It’s the highest number since the Census Bureau began tracking the population in 1970.
And that number is likely to rise as the administration attempts to pass its border wall, which President Donald Trump has promised will cost at least $20 billion.
The Migration Policy institute said that the U-turn in the administration’s plan is a response to criticism that it’s not aggressive enough.
“The Trump administration will continue to enforce the law and take appropriate enforcement action as necessary,” the institute said in a statement.
“It will continue its commitment to deporting illegal immigrants with criminal records, including those who commit violent crimes, and will make sure that people who commit serious crimes will be deported.”
The administration is also looking at ways to get more of the undocumented out of the country, the Migration Institute said.
But that would require a drastic reduction in immigration enforcement, which would likely involve a mass deportation of undocumented immigrants who have committed violent crimes or who have violated immigration laws.
For example, the institute estimated that at least 2,000 people a day are killed by police officers in the U
