Trump Talks About Deporting Millions Of Immigrants Using Nation Guard Troops

Donald Trump, in an interview with Times Magazine, described his plan to deport undocumented immigrants even if it requires a militaristic approach. He is betting on an anti-immigration rhetoric that helped him win the 2016 run for the White House.

Earlier this month, former President Donald Trump sat in an interview with the Times Magazine, which was finally published Tuesday. The presumptive Republican nominee for the upcoming election was asked about several of his policies, including abortion rights, project 2025, and so on. Surprisingly, he was quite brief with answers, saying, “You’ll have to speak to the individual states.” 

But the topic he discussed in detail was his plan to deport around 15 to 20 million people who illegally entered the U.S.A. Trump elaborated that “These aren’t civilians. These are people that aren’t legally in our country. This is an invasion of our country. You have to do what you have to do to stop crime and to stop what’s taking place at the border.”

When asked about what approach he will take to fight undocumented immigrations, he suggested using National Guards to forcefully deport “people who don’t belong in the country.” According to Trump, the majority of illegal immigrants have committed crimes in their homeland. The ex-president plans to take the “millions of migrants” out of the border and leave them there. 

“We’re not leaving them in the country. We’re bringing them out,” he said, pointing toward the possibility of an alarming number of encampments outside the border.

This will not be the first time a U.S. President has turned to the National Guard to handle the borders. In fact, George W. Bush's Operation Jumpstart and Barack Obama's Operation Phalanx required National Guard troops to bolster border security.

Nearly 2.5 million encounters at the border were recorded from 2022 to 2023. In 2016, Trump promised to round up the illegal migration into the country, which he couldn’t accomplish during his time in the Office.
