During his town hall event on FOX News on Wednesday night, Trump said that if he is reelected, the U.S. will undertake the largest deportation effort in the history of the country.
He called the numbers of people who have illegally entered the country under Biden unsustainable and referenced the recent news from New York where students at a high school were displaced by illegal border crossers.
Illegal immigration was a top issue for Trump in 2016 and the problem is even worse in 2024.

‘We Have No Choice’: Trump Vows to Create ‘Largest Deportation Effort’ in U.S. History If Reelected
Former president Donald Trump vowed during his Fox News town hall on Wednesday night to create the “largest deportation effort in the history of our country” if he is reelected in November, saying “we have no choice.”
Trump, the leading contender for the Republican nomination, said that as many as 18 million people will have entered the country illegally during Democrat Joe Biden’s presidency, a number that he said is “not sustainable for our country.”
“Many of those people come from jails and prisons, many of those people come from mental institutions and insane asylums, and many of those people are terrorists,” he said.
