President Trump has said he will crack down on illegal immigration. Here is the first step. 90 Somalis and 2 Kenyans deported. Their plane landed at the Mogadishu Airport this past week.
Also, two Kenyans were deported as well.
According to Kenyan officials, the number deported could actually be much higher.
President Trump signed an executive order to ban immigrants from many nations that are loaded with terrorists. The illegal immigrants being deported happened before he signed the executive order banning immigrants from these countries.
More than 90 Somalis and Kenyans arrived in the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday after being deported from the United States, a Kenyan official said.
Government spokesman Eric Kiraithe said the deported included 90 Somali men and two Kenyan women, while adding he did not know why they had been deported.
A security officer at the airport said the Somalis were then flown to Mogadishu, the Somali capital, while the Kenyans were released.
Other officials termed the number higher as compared to past cases as they expressed fears the American authorities were toughening up on illegal immigrants there.
It came ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump’s expected signing of executive orders that include a temporary ban on most refugees and a suspension of visas for citizens of Syria and six other Middle Eastern and African countries.
Analysts say it remains unclear if Trump has scrapped plans to undo the 2012 Obama executive order shielding from deportation nearly 800,000 people brought into the country illegally as children.
