Trump Threatens to Deport Millions     06/18 06:25

   President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions of people living in 
the country illegally on the eve of formally announcing his re-election bid.

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is threatening to remove millions 
of people living in the country illegally on the eve of formally announcing his 
re-election bid.

   In a pair of tweets Monday night, Trump said that U.S. Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement would next week "begin the process of removing the millions 
of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States."

   "They will be removed as fast as they come in," he wrote.

   An administration official said the effort would focus on the more than 1 
million people who have been issued final deportation orders by federal judges 
but remain at large in the country. The official spoke on condition of 
anonymity to explain the president's tweets.

   It is unusual for law enforcement agencies to announce raids before they 
take place. Some in Trump's administration believe that decisive shows of force 
--- like mass arrests --- can serve as effective deterrents, sending a message 
to those considering making the journey to the U.S. that it's not worth coming.

   Trump has threatened a series of increasingly drastic actions as he has 
tried to stem the flow of Central American migrants crossing the southern 
border, which has risen dramatically on his watch. He recently dropped a threat 
to slap tariffs on Mexico after the country agreed to dispatch its national 
guard and step-up coordination and enforcement efforts.

   A senior Mexican official said Monday that, three weeks ago, about 4,200 
migrants were arriving at the U.S. border daily. Now that number has dropped to 
about 2,600.

   Immigration was a central theme of Trump's 2016 campaign and he is expected 
to hammer it as he tries to fire up his base heading into the 2020 campaign.

   Trump will formally launch his re-election bid Tuesday night at a rally in 
Orlando, Florida --- a state that is crucial to his path back to the White 
House.
