Trump Is Now Targeting ‘Millions Of Families’ And ‘Terrorizing’ Them
Donald Trump is receiving backlash for targeting millions of immigrant families in America in an attempt to separate them.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff called out the president for his threat to arrest and deport millions of migrants living in the U.S., calling it impractical, implausible and immoral.
“Donald Trump is a human billboard for illegal migration, the way he’s talking about this,” Soboroff said. “When he came into the office, and the numbers dipped, they called it the Trump effect and people were scared. People aren’t scared of Donald Trump anymore, and they are rushing to the country.”
“His threats are basically a big, red flashing sign saying, ‘Come here now or you’re never going to get in,’” the reporter added. “His policies have failed miserably, and we are seeing the consequences today.”
Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to tout his rough immigration policies while celebrating immigration raids across the country.
….long before they get to our Southern Border. Guatemala is getting ready to sign a Safe-Third Agreement. The only ones who won’t do anything are the Democrats in Congress. They must vote to get rid of the loopholes, and fix asylum! If so, Border Crisis will end quickly!

Soboroff warned that Trump’s latest threat to detain and deport millions of migrants was logistically impossible to carry out, and any attempt to follow through on this campaign promise was needlessly cruel.
“ICE goes into neighborhoods (and) literally targets parents, in many cases, that have American-born children, American citizen children while these children are at school or the parents are at work,” Soboroff said. “They’re going to go and do a raid on those families.”
The parents will then be sent back to their home countries, Soboroff said, and the children will be placed in already overcrowded detention facilities.
“Operationally, what he is threatening is literally not possible,” Soboroff said. “So what he’s doing is attempting to terrorize — literally, by definition — millions of families.”
