Axios reported on February 11 that if elected president later this year, former US President Donald Trump will seek to exploit a series of executive powers to deport `millions` of people in a campaign to suppress immigration.

Axios quoted an informed source as saying that during the second term of the Trump administration, the US will mobilize immigration officials, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and many other government law enforcement agencies to carry out enforcement efforts.

Additionally, expedited deportations will be extended to people found to have crossed the border illegally and to those who cannot prove they have lived in the US for at least two years, according to Axios.

In addition, Axios said Mr. Trump will use a law that allows for the immediate arrest and deportation of immigrants with criminal histories.

Axios also noted that Mr. Trump may reimpose the `Muslim ban` to restrict people from certain countries with a majority of Muslim citizens from entering the United States.

On February 10, Mr. Trump – the most potential candidate for the Republican presidential nomination – announced that deporting migrants would be one of the first tasks in his second term.

`On day one, I will end all open border policies of the Biden administration and we will begin the largest domestic deportation campaign in American history. We have no choice,` he said.

According to Axios, Mr. Trump’s immigration program will likely face opposition from Democratic lawmakers, as well as from Latino support groups.

Additionally, financial analysts predict that removing undocumented migrants from the workforce will harm the U.S. economy, as well as stifle policies designed to reduce

Mr. Trump took a similarly aggressive approach to immigration during his four-year term in the White House from 2017 to 2021, although he deported fewer people during his presidency.

Last month, a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll found that immigration was the main issue of concern for American voters, ahead of inflation and the economy.

US officials last month said the number of people arrested for illegally crossing the US border from Mexico reached an all-time high of 249,785 in December. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
