In the United States, former President Donald Trump has announced plans for massive deportations if he is re-elected. At a rally in South Carolina, Trump stated that he would support the entire open borders policy of the Biden administration and begin the largest national deportation operation in history. He emphasized that there is no other choice and called the rejection of the legislative package a great victory for conservatives.
The legislative package worth $118 billion failed in the US Senate due to resistance from Republicans. The package included changes to immigration policy and a compromise negotiated between Democrats and Republicans that linked foreign aid to US border security. However, this compromise was rejected by Trump, who intends to use border policy as a campaign issue in the upcoming presidential election.
Trump has openly opposed the reform package and put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let it fail. The upper house is now considering a package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy.
