Soooo everyone is freaking out because Trump ordered all the illegals to be deported immediately – except none of that happened. ICE says their raids were planned from before the inauguration, and they’re targeting criminal illegal aliens, and it’s very few people.
In fact, here are the numbers that ICE says they have rounded up so far:

I mean, that’s nothing. There are at least 11 million illegal aliens in America, and yet liberals want you to believe that he’s ordering everyone out. It’s not even close.
Here’s a pretty good segment from PBS on the legality of Trump’s demands on immigration:
More about the raids from the Washington Post:
Officials said the raids targeted known criminals, but they also netted some immigrants without criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration. Last month, Trump substantially broadened the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.
Meanwhile, apparently there are pro-illegal protests everywhere!! Yay.
