President-elect Donald Trump gained media attention for his heavily criticized remarks about immigrants. Previously, Donald Trump called Mexican immigrants criminals and rapists. Since then, Donald Trump has done his best to polish his image and clarify his remarks. Under the Obama administration, roughly 400,000 deportations were done per year. Obama has urged Donald Trump to keep the executive order that grants children of illegal immigrants a temporary stay, to complete school and other endeavors.

“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records — gang members, drug dealers, we have a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million. We are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,” Mr. Trump said.

I am interested in seeing his Donald Trump will truly live up to the “expectations” he has set for deportation, building a wall, and working with immigrants. I have noticed that he has softened his tone in regards to immigration, yet he remains adamant on deporting criminals. I agree with his stance on incarceration or deportation for criminals but I am not sure if it is feasible. Deportation is costly and time-consuming. Donald Trump will need to hire more Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) employees, as well as working closely with Homeland Security.
