The war on immigrants who now reside illegally in Donald Trump’s America has started to evolve into a system to frighten and intimidate those he wants to deport back to their home countries. The president has ordered that those who are currently serving in the U.S. Army under a program to eventually gain citizenship status while in service to our country be discharged from active duty status as soon as possible. The president stated that we are not sure of their loyalty due to family ties in the countries they immigrated from. The Army has started the process of discharging those who fall under the guidelines now in place for that purpose.
The other action now being implemented is the revocation of citizenship of those individuals who got into trouble with the law before they became sworn citizens or who were able to use other means to gain that status. There are now thousands of citizens and legal residents of this country who may now find themselves subject to denaturalization and deportation for past offenses, some of them committed decades ago. The Department of Homeland Security plans to spend more than $207 million to look for cases of possible citizenship fraud related to criminal activities and identity issues. The Trump agenda on this matter is very clear. Build the wall and deport. Period
