"He said he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act, a 1798 law that was part of the Alien and Sedition Acts that allowed the deportation of any immigrant who hailed from a country at war with the United States," the Hill reported.
"Trump said he would use the law to remove 'all known or suspected gang members, drug dealers or cartel members from the United States,'” the report stated.
‘Ending The Scourge’
Sounds like a great plan.

“Following the Eisenhower Model, we will carry out the largest domestic deportation operation in American History. I will also invoke the Alien Enemies Act to remove all known or suspected Gang Members, drug dealers, or Cartel Members from the United States, ending the scourge of illegal alien gang violence once and for all,” Trump shared.
“I will make clear that we must use any and all resources needed to stop the invasion—including moving thousands of troops currently stationed overseas to our OWN southern border. Before we defend the borders of foreign countries, we must secure the border of OUR country,” he added.
You know what the women want? They don't want crime; they want to have strong borders and safe neighborhoods. - President Donald Trump

"You know what the women want? They don't want crime; they want to have strong borders and safe neighborhoods," Trump also stated during his Iowa speech.
The remarks contrast the Biden administration's ongoing border crisis that ended the construction of Trump's border wall and has allowed record numbers of border crossings.
The border crisis has also become a national security issue as a growing number of cities have become overwhelmed by a sudden surge in migrants.
In New York City, over 110,000 asylum seekers have led to chaos for Mayor Eric Adams, who has now cried out to Biden for assistance.
Trump's speech was one of his strongest yet, resonating with many conservatives in Iowa and beyond ready for a better America.
