Well, it looks like Trump really is making a difference in how we deport illegal aliens. And liberals are freaking out over it.
From the Washington Post:
U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 26 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.
The raids, which officials said targeted known criminals, also netted some immigrants who did not have criminal records, an apparent departure from similar enforcement waves during the Obama administration that aimed to just corral and deport those who had committed crimes.
So Obama DID deport a lot of illegals, but he targeted mostly criminals, something that Trump promised too. However, ICE raids are capturing others who aren’t criminal aliens apart from their illegal immigration status.
VOX’s Matt Yglesias thinks he’s gonna get deported:

Check out moron Joaquin Castro’s response:
Please forward me any videos, photos or other documentary evidence of the ICE raids, including any evidence of random citizenship checks.

Sulu is triggered:
Make no mistake: The ICE raids in six states are not business as usual. They are meant to terrorize and destabilize our cities, communities.

There are rumors I’m seeing that there are immigration “traffic stops” in California – these are false, but people keep spreading them:
Hey any immigrants, or people who know any near the valley in CA. There's an ICE checkpoint at Van Nuys and Oxnard! Stay safe, & be careful!

And, I’m personally hearing from people I know in California that illegals are going back to their countries of origin, fearing that they’ll be deported anyway. Sound familiar? Trump got a phone call from 2012 – it’s Mitt Romney and he wants his “self-deportation” plan back!
