Former US President Donald Trump has expressed his support for the failure of a draft law on migration in the Senate. At a rally in South Carolina, he announced plans for massive deportations if he is re-elected. Trump 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 reason for the current resistance from Republicans is the rejection of the package by Trump, who intends to use border policy as a campaign issue in the upcoming presidential election. The upper house is now considering a package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy.
Trump has openly opposed the reform package and put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let it fail. He stated at the rally, “From day one I will support the entire open borders policy of the Biden administration and we will begin the largest national deportation operation in the history of the United States.” Trump emphasized that there is no other choice and called the rejection of the legislative package a great victory for conservatives.
