America, under President Donald Trump, is due to deport thousands of Somali nationals.
According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brendan Raedy, an estimated 4,801 Somali nationals are facing final orders of removal from the country.
Many of them have committed crimes.
Voice of America reports:
“‘As of April 1, 2017, there were 4,801 Somali nationals with final orders of removal,’ U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesman Brendan Raedy said Tuesday. ‘As of that same date, 237 Somali nationals have been removed to Somalia in fiscal year 2017.’
“The statement confirmed information VOA obtained from Somalia’s U.S. ambassador 10 days ago.
“Ambassador Ahmed Isse Awad told VOA’s Somali service his embassy had learned that U.S. immigration agents were planning to deport about 4,000 Somali nationals now living in the United States.
“Most of them have committed crimes. ‘ICE continues to focus its limited enforcement resources toward individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security,’ Raedy said.
“He added, however, that any immigrant who is in the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation. ‘All of those in violation of immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States.'”
