Ken Cuccinelli, Acting Director of USCIS: ICE to Begin Deporting 1 Million ILLEGALS

One of the Trump administration's top immigration officials said Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is preparing waves of operations to remove a total of one million migrants who have been ordered deported by judges.
Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), said the Department of Homeland Security's removal branch is set to execute a plan to find, detain and ultimately deport at least a million migrants who have surpassed final removal orders. Cuccinelli said President Donald Trump will make good on his threat to deport "millions" of migrants.
Last month, Trump postponed the ICE deportations — which would have only affected a few thousand migrant families, according to reports — for two weeks as Congress debated potential reforms to asylum laws which never found bipartisan agreement. On Friday, Trump said the roundups would begin "fairly soon."
Cuccinelli backed up Trump's deportation plan, saying the American people should not be surprised by such removal operations, and the ICE migrant roundups have simply been "held up" by Washington political games.
"They're ready to just perform their mission, which is to go and find and detain and then deport the approximately one million people who have final removal orders," Cuccinelli told CBS News' Face the Nation Sunday. "They've been all the way through due process and have final removal orders."
