Trump Threatens to Deport Millions Next Week


Truth or dare? CNN reports that President Donald Trump last night in a tweet threatened to deport "millions" of undocumented immigrants next week.  The tweet did not provide details and administration officials did not respond to requests for clarification.



UPDATE (June 19):  One can only speculate about whether the Trump administration in fact plans to ramp up removals.  However, as with the threatened rescission of DACA, the threat impacts immigrants who live in our communities.  Fears of removal may affect whether immigrants attend schools, go to the doctors, cooperate with the police, and more.  Consequently, the threats to immigrants do damage whether or not they are carried out.  Humans and communities -- all of our communities -- are adversely affected
