President Donald Trump has announced there will be a major crackdown on illegal immigrants living in the United States.
In a tweet on Monday, Trump said the crackdown, which begins next week, targets millions of foreigners illegally living in the country.
Trump said the operation to remove illegal immigrants will be conducted by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump tweeted.
“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he added without offering specifics.
An estimated 12 million immigrants, mainly from Mexico and Central America, are said to be illegally residing in the US.
