Donald Trump is taking credit for an Obama administration plan to launch deportation raids in January.
The move was condemned by Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates, but Trump did a victory lap.
Wow, because of the pressure put on by me, ICE TO LAUNCH LARGE SCALE DEPORTATION RAIDS, Trump wrote on Twitter. It’s about time!
On Wednesday night, the Washington Post reported that the Department of Homeland Security is planning a series of raids targeted at hundreds of people previously ordered removed from the U.S. who have managed to escape deportation.
