All quotes about Deportation

Jason Flora

If you asked 100 people to paint you a picture of a bad guy, no one would draw anyone remotely resembling Roberto.

Adam Ansari

How do you explain this to children. Trying to explain this to children from the immigrant community has been really hard. You're telling them that their loved one is in jail not because they did something wrong, but because of their country of origin and what they look like.

Sushma Swaraj

Until we verify the nationalities of these people, how do we believe the claims in the list? We have asked the U.S. government for more information and told them that we will give an emergency certificate for their deportation only after establishing their Indian nationalities.

Alejandra Salinas

Clients tell me 'I don't know what would happen if I got taken away. There's no one here to take care of my kids.

Natividad Gonzalez

As a mom I try to do everything so they don't worry when they're not with me. But I don't know what to do for them to not have to go through this. I feel so helpless.

Alejandra Salinas

I know families that wouldn't take their kids to the Mardi Gras parade. They say, I heard they might be picking people up there.' There's a fear of everything, even going to the grocery store.

Joanna Dreby

Instead of cops and robber, it was ICE chasing the immigrant. That's chilling!

Ursula Pertl

Kids are suffering from anxiety about not wanting to leave their parents or being worried [about if] they'll still be there when they get home.

Natividad Gonzalez

I worry that at any time the cops could detain me. I feel uncertain all the time because it seems as if every day there's more bad news against our community. We are at greater risk of having our families broken apart, and we haven't even committed a crime.

Kalina Brabeck

They feel nervous and afraid and worry about things outside their control. What was interesting was that children of undocumented parents had fewer behavior problems and were less likely to be hyperactive. They sit still and are quiet, but they're experiencing a lot of internal stress that might not be so apparent externally. They slip under the radar. They might not be recognized as needing help.

Natividad Gonzalez

These are things that an 11-year-old shouldn't have to be thinking about. Today will be a great day. I want you to learn a lot. When you get home, we will play together or maybe we'll go shopping.

Ginette Arguello

They're having recurring nightmares or eating too much or too little. One child simply told me 'My body aches.

Natividad Gonzalez

People call me all the time, saying 'What can we do?' They are so stressed out.

Natividad Gonzalez

God, please protect my family. I'm placing my family in your hands. You brought us this far to this country for opportunity.

Dan Brien

If they are found to be inadmissible without a valid claim, deportation procedures are begun.

Donald J. Trump

He had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal. It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote. He lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.

Scott Kizner

In the event of family separation (accident, arrest, emergency hospitalization, etc.) who will take care of your child temporarily?

Allegra Happy Haynes

Our families, and quite frankly, our staff are terrified. And despite the resolution we passed that you don't get into our schools without a court order, they remain fearful.

Steven R. Staples

Several superintendents who happened to have fairly large immigrant populations were mindful that it was a possibility, and given the national conversation I think their inclination was to seek advice before they had an incident rather than afterward.

Steven R. Staples

Our goal is to get children in school and have them engage in learning. A frightened child doesn't learn much.

Kathryn Finley

Folks are very, very fearful and very uncertain, but I think also wanting to be as proactive as they can be.

Scott Kizner

I remember walking up to her and putting my arm on her shoulder and saying, Your child is safe at our school.

Rainier Corral

No, thanks. Most of them are just normal people that are trying to get a better way of life. It's one thing to deport people who have criminal records – that's fine. It's another thing to deport families that haven't done anything wrong.

Paul Schmidt

It seems they have an assumption that everyone who has committed a crime should be removable, but that's not necessarily true. Even people who have committed serious crimes can sometimes get asylum. That's what you call aimless docket reshuffling.

Sally Hernandez

I am following all state and federal laws, and upholding constitutional rights to due process for all in our criminal justice system. Our community is safer when people can report crimes without fear of deportation.

Taner Akcam

The official Turkish argument is that deportation of Armenians was a response to Armenian uprisings. This is the reason the Van event is crucial in Ottoman Turkish historiography. This argument is not correct, because . . . we know that the decision for deportation was already taken before the Van uprising.

Kamal Essaheb

Trump's actions expose this administration's blueprint for reshaping America. Those of us who oppose Trump's agenda need to fight lots of fights. The budget. The Muslim ban and Trump's deportation force will hurt real people in real communities.

Miguelina Diaz

They're making these decisions based on what they hear in the news or information they're getting from other people. People started asking questions right after Trump took office.

Jackie Vimo

We are creating an environment where there are kids living in this country exposed to hunger and malnutrition, and without access to health care. The consequences of not properly caring for those children will catch up with us when they're older.

Luisa Fortin

I get calls from concerned parents all the time: 'should I take my kids out of the program?'. They're risking hunger out of fear … and my heart just breaks for them. And I try my best to keep in touch in them. … But in the end, if that fear is too real, I tell them it's their family's decision. And I connect them with a food pantry or mobile food distribution.

Jackie Vimo

This is a response to the climate of fear and terror that immigrant families are living in because of the Trump administration. These are unfounded fears. But they're based in this environment, and they're very widespread.

David Thomsen - National Council Of La Raza

We used to tell people that signing up does not make you a public charge. Now my advice would be, if you're worried, talk to a lawyer.

Ricardo Batiz

They're staying away from me. I say hi to them, and they avoid me completely. I don't know what they've been saying amongst themselves. But no one is signing up anymore, and the people who need to renew are not renewing.

John McCain

We simply cannot win this war without the assistance of the Afghan people who put their lives on the line to help American troops and diplomats serving in harm's way.

Elizabeth Foydel

It's very difficult to say whether he fully understood the implications of what he was doing.

Jeanne Shaheen

This is a matter of life and death for interpreters and other support staff. As we speak, many of them are being hunted down by the Taliban and other terrorists. We have a moral obligation to protect the thousands of Afghans who put themselves, and their families, at risk to help our soldiers and diplomats. To abandon them now would be a stain on our nation's honor. There's no excuse for Congress to not act in a bipartisan way to approve these additional visas as it has done in the past.

Jeanne Shaheen

It's imperative that Congress act quickly to approve more visas. This is a matter of life and death for interpreters and other support staff. As we speak, many of them are being hunted down by the Taliban and other terrorists.

John McCain

We simply cannot win this war without the assistance of the Afghan people who put their lives on the line to help American troops and diplomats serving in harm's way. Unfortunately in recent years, Congress has reneged on the promise we made to protect these brave individuals by failing to authorize the appropriate number of Special Immigrant Visas for Afghan translators and interpreters.

Jeanne Shaheen

It's imperative that Congress act quickly to approve more visas. We have a moral obligation to protect the thousands of Afghans who put themselves, and their families, at risk to help our soldiers and diplomats.

Chuck Schumer

If Republicans insist on inserting poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall, or starting a deportation force, they will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy.

Yaritza Mendez

I try to make it interactive because it's long and very sad, in a way.

Pablo Alvarado

We're training the trainers. People don't have to be lawyers to share what the constitutional rights of people are.

Vander Velpen

We're turning the clock back 10 years. We have six months to appeal it, and we're already intensively preparing our arguments.

Aya Sabi

Removing terrorists from Belgian soil isn't going to solve anything; they'll just continue abroad.

Theo Francken

I am not going to put someone out of the country, who has lived here all of his life and has children here and so forth, just because he got two speeding tickets. That's absurd. That is not my intention at all. If I can keep a Syria fighter in Syria, then I'll definitely do that, that's for sure. We're already taking back all the Belgian nationals. And to be honest, we don't know what to do with them anymore, and in fact, the whole of Europe doesn't know what to do with these people anymore.

Theo Francken

Let me be very clear. This is about 20 cases of terrorism and 50 cases of heavy criminality. It's about simplifying the procedures of orders for leaving the territory.

Vander Velpen

The Immigration Office can immediately, without interference of a judge, put someone out of the country based on indications that he or she could pose a threat to the public order.

Aya Sabi

That's the same logic the government applied when foreign terrorist fighters started to leave for Syria, and that didn't turn out well, did it?

Terry Dwyer - KDP Investment Advisors

The deportation crackdown is doing very good things for these companies. On a personal level, it leaves a sour taste in my mouth, but I guess business is business.

Naomi Tsu - Southern Poverty Law Center

We will continue to challenge the unconstitutional actions of ICE agents in this case and will not rest until she is no longer under threat of deportation.

Joseph Dunn

The Republicans decided the way they were going to create jobs was by getting rid of anyone with a Mexican-sounding name. For participating cities and counties, they would go through public employee rolls and look for Mexican-sounding names and then go and arrest and deport those people. And then there was a job opening! We weren't rounding up people who were Canadian. It was an absolutely racially-motivated program to create jobs by getting rid of people.

Raul Castro

The new agenda of the U.S. government threatens to unleash an extreme and egotistical trade policy that will impact the competitiveness of our foreign trade; violate environmental agreements ... hunt down and deport migrants. You can't contain poverty, catastrophes and migrants with walls, but with cooperation, understanding and peace.

Nina DiSalvo

That's obviously a big deal; it's recognizing the possibility that a government contractor could be engaging in forced labor. That means you need to round up and detain more people in order to determine whether they have the rights to stay in this country before you deport them. More people could be moving through, not just in the Aurora facility. More people could be subjected to GEO's forced labor policy.

Robert Chilowa

It really broke my heart what I'm going through now. I did nothing wrong. I don't have a criminal record. Someone should have a heart.

Macy Hudson

Every time we talked it was like she was finding new pieces of herself.

Jordan Sanders

She said she was in a cell with other girls. She hasn't even taken a shower yet because she's scared to. She has no clue what's going on.

Jordan Sanders

They rushed around the vehicle and opened Dany's side of her door and they were just like, You know who we are, you know who we're here for.

Randy Capps

The odds are still very low but not as low as they were – and this is just the beginning of the administration.

Melvin Arias - Costa

If there comes a time when both of us have a problem, I want there to be a responsible person who can come and get [the children] for us, to take them to wherever we might be.

Felix Walworth

This festival uses an imperialist model and prioritizes centralizing and packaging culture over communities and people's safety. It's no secret that SXSW has played a huge role in the process of Austin's rapid gentrification. The whole festival exists to the detriment of working class people and people of color in Austin. That they're willing to threaten deportation is enough evidence for me that they don't care about anyone including the artists that lend them their legitimacy.

Dimitris Avramopoulos

Return rates have to be improved. Member states should also use the possibility to place migrants in detention if there is a risk of absconding and for a sufficient period to be able to complete the return and readmission procedure.

Sean Spicer

Remember, everybody who is here illegally is subject to removal at any time. That is consistent with every country, not just ours. If you're in this country in an illegal manner, that obviously there's a provision that could ensure that you be removed.

Irene Clennell

The authorities have shown their willingness to treat foreign-born people as second class citizens, no matter how integrated they are, and worse, treat us like criminals. During my removal from Britain I was treated like a terrorist: I was restrained by the arms, my every word written down, and there were guards on the door when I went to the toilet. This happened in full view of the public in Edinburgh airport and was deeply humiliating.

Irene Clennell

The border authorities even claimed that I – a woman on my own – posed a risk of violence. And they ticked a form to note the media interest and public sympathy in my case, as if I was to be punished for speaking out. I am hoping to lodge an appeal against my deportation, which I believe has been conducted secretly, inappropriately and with little due process.

Irene Clennell

Above all, I would appeal to all those who have made 'migrant' a term of abuse, to think about the human cost of their actions. Wanting to build a life and a family, and to be around people and places that you love, is not a crime.

Irene Clennell

Everything that took place last weekend was the latest step in a long story of an immigration system that provides no adequate support to claimants, and does its best to treat honest people like liars and thieves.

Nancy Pelosi

The president's Muslim and refugee ban dishonors our values, violates our constitution and undermines our nation's fight against terror. He has launched a cruel deportation dragnet that will tear families apart, and has hauled law-abiding immigrants out of church shelters, courtrooms and schools.

Dianne Feinstein

Under this new guidance, 11 million undocumented immigrants are now priorities for deportation.

Rex W. Tillerson - ExxonMobil

Let me be clear, there will be no mass deportations, everything we do in DHS will be done legally. The focus of deportation will be on the criminal element, all of this will be done in close coordination with Mexico.

Rex W. Tillerson - ExxonMobil

The focus of deportation will be on the criminal element, all of this will be done in close coordination with Mexico.

Mark Hugo Lopez - Pew Research Center

Those who are most concerned are those at most risk for deportation, people who don't have U.S. citizenship. Among U.S. born Hispanics, most are confident about their place in America after Donald Trump's election. While it's not much different from what we've seen in the past with surveys we've done on Hispanics, we would need to remeasure this given what's happened in the last few weeks.

Luis Videgaray

The Mexican government will take all the measures legally possible to defend the human rights of Mexicans abroad, especially in the United States.

Jason Marczak - Economic Growth

The relationship... is at such a historic low that it would be wishful thinking to assume that new concrete agenda items to advance [it] will come at this point.

Luis Videgaray

I want to say clearly and most emphatically that the Mexican government and the Mexican people have no reason to accept unilateral decisions imposed by one government on another. We are not going to accept that, because we don't have to.

Sean Spicer

I think Secretary Tillerson and Secretary Kelly are going to have a great discussion down there.

Abril Gallardo

We have a regular life, but with this new executive order, anyone, just for the fact that you're here, you can become a priority.

Cristina Parker

We got over 1,000 phone calls in three days about the raids. And certainly a lot of those were people who wanted information about the raids saying, I'm scared, I'm worried, what can I do?. A lot of them were people who were impacted by the raids who saw a friend or family be taken.

Paul Ryan

I'm here to tell you, in Congress, it's not happening. But if you're worried about, you know, some deportation force coming, knocking on your door this year, don't worry about that.

Adam Coogle - Human Rights Watch

We hear reports that deportations are ongoing and they probably increased following the attack in Rukban camp in June, 2016.

Matteo Paoltroni

If you keep people in the shade (they) will have to do something to survive. If you are a government body and ... security is one of your biggest problems then you want to know where these people are.

Geronimo Gutierrez

Obviously, they are a cause for concern for the foreign relations department, for the Mexican government, and for all Mexicans.

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

These memos confirm that the Trump administration is willing to trample on due process, human decency, the well-being of our communities, and even protections for vulnerable children, in pursuit of a hyper-aggressive mass deportation policy.

Chris Burbank

I heard about it through a back channel, and had to assure her we were not going to deport her for us to get involved.

Joanne Lin

[D]ue process, human decency, and common sense are treated as inconvenient obstacles on the path to mass deportation. The Trump administration is intent on inflicting cruelty on millions of immigrant families across the country.

Maria Bilbao

They are broadening ways in which immigration officials can deport families. How can they keep a clear conscience.

Stephen Yale-Loehr

If Trump wants to put more people in deportation but does not increase the number of immigration judges, then people are going to have to wait longer and longer to get a hearing.

Joseph Tobin

Personally I think it was very misbegotten. I think it's demonizing, playing on irrational fears of people that have been fomented not simply by the political class but also some irresponsible people in the media. Are you going to chase people down the streets trying to lock them up and deport them? Or are you going to say this legislation is broken? Let's fix it.

John Stevens Val

You lose all of your money and now you do not even succeed. It's not easy to live in Haiti. It's complicated. There is no aid; there is no organization that can help us in one way or the other. We're here. We live poorly. If I don't have any opportunities, I'll leave.

Adelson Lorgeat

They spent a lot of money. It's like a broken dream. They left thinking they would stay 20, 30, 40 years or never return. They consider it to be a dishonour, a defeat.

Manny Garcia

In the dead of the night, while the very families that will be targeted by this discriminatory legislation were asleep, Republicans voted to launch Trump's deportation force agenda.

Charles Perry

This is not a deportation bill, this is a rule of law bill. We have almost a culture of contempt for federal immigration law.

Dennis Herrera

President Trumps' executive order tries to turn city and state employees into federal immigration officers. That is unconstitutional. No president can commandeer the local police force and turn it into the deportation arm of the federal government.

Fuad Sharef

We were treated like drug dealers, escorted by deportation officers. I am broken, I am totally broken.

Chris Newman

There is no question that in order to do the type of mass deportation that he promised, it will require him conscripting local law enforcement agencies. It is going to balkanize things ... and we're going to see more of the extremes.

Fuad Sharef

We were treated like drug dealers, escorted by deportation officers. I feel very guilty towards my wife and kids. I feel like I'm the reason behind their dismay. I see [it is] like autocracy, someone signs and effective immediately what does this mean? It is just like Saddam Hussein's decisions. Yeah without going back to the Congress, I don't understand. I am broken, I am totally broken, I don't understand how he rewards those people who helped him. I don't understand this. When we worked with them, we put our lives, my life, my family's life, in jeopardy.

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We need to keep this country safe, but we should do that by focusing on people who actually pose a threat. Expanding the focus of law enforcement beyond people who are real threats would make all Americans less safe by diverting resources, while millions of undocumented folks who don't pose a threat will live in fear of deportation. We are a nation of immigrants, and we all benefit when the best and brightest from around the world can live, work and contribute here. I hope we find the courage and compassion to bring people together and make this world a better place for everyone.

Bill de Blasio

We will not deport law-abiding New Yorkers. There is less here than meets the eye. This executive order is written in a very vague fashion.

Bill de Blasio

This executive order could in fact undermine public safety and make our neighborhoods less safe. Firstly because this executive order could undermine the relationship between our police department and our communities which has been the foundation of our ability to drive down crime. We will not deport law-abiding New Yorkers. We will not tear families apart.

Paul Ryan

We're going to pay for it and front the money up. There are a lot of different ways of getting Mexico to contribute to doing this . . . We will be working with [Trump] to finance construction of a physical barrier, including the wall, on the southern border. I'm a person who believes that for the undocumented, we have to come up with a solution that doesn't involve mass deportation, that involves giving people the ability to get right with the law, to come in and earn a legal status while we fix the rest of legal immigration.

Isidro Morales

There will be deportations but probably at the same level as under Obama. Perhaps, it will increase a little bit but I do not believe there will be the deportation of three million that he has proposed, because the capacity for police to deport so many does not exist.

Greisa Martinez

There is a vast network of a deportation structure that will now facilitate Trump's move to deport millions of people more.

Julio Hernandez

What life are we going to have if they deport us? We feared this would happen and sadly we find ourselves in a country where we can't do anything.

Ivan Diaz

It's taken the oxygen from me. I've got $10 left in my pocket. We are going to carry on. We don't lose anything by going to the Laredo border. We must be able to do something. Otherwise, let them deport me back to Cuba.

Kevin Herman

It's stories like that that have motivated me to become efficient and upgrade my equipment. No doubt about it. I probably wouldn't have spent as much or bought as much machinery as I did.

Tom Nassif

I think he's looking at people who have committed more serious crimes and start with them first -- and rightly so.

Joe Garcia

Our workers are scared. If they're concerned, we're concerned. We'll plan around what we have. That's all we can do.

Cecilia Muñoz

Ultimately, it wouldn't protect a single soul from deportation, so it's not an answer here.

Jerry Moran

There must be serious legislative efforts to address U.S. immigration policy, and we must have the ability to identify, prosecute and deport illegal aliens who display violent tendencies before they have an opportunity to perpetrate these crimes in the United States.

Angela Merkel

We have also made progress this year on the very important issue of deporting Tunisian citizens who have no right to stay in Germany. I told the Tunisian president that we have to significantly speed up the deportation process and increase the number of people sent back. We can be relieved at the end of this week that the acute danger is over. However the danger of terrorism in general endures, as it has for several years. We all know that.

Worrasit Piriyawiboon

This is not an extradition. This is a deportation. Once he's in Switzerland, he's a free man.

Worrasit Piriyawiboon

It's now up to immigration when they decide to deport him and up to his embassy.

George King

I have not been able to speak to him since they took away his phones. I understand they will deport him.

George King

I have no idea why I am being held, nor has anyone proffered any kind of explanation. As far as I am aware, I haven't been charged.

Maria Burnett - Human Rights Watch

We have serious concerns that officials seek to silence independent voices who are critical of the government. We have documented cases of intimidation, arrest, questioning and harassing criminal charges brought against Kenyan journalists and bloggers.

George King

The immigration officer noticed something on her computer and led me to a side room. They said there was a security block on my passport, which had been put there by Kenyan security services.

Jeremy Robbins

This election clearly showed that Americans are wildly frustrated with our broken immigration system. But it would be a mistake, to equate their desire for someone to secure the border with support for mass deportation or other hard-line policies that would both devastate the economy and undermine core American values.

Jeff Sessions

Under Donald Trump, this left-right business coalition thing is not going to work.

Sarah Leah Whitson - Human Rights Watch

A mass and summary deportation of migrants, including men and women who may have fled persecution or have worked for years in Algeria, would violate their rights. The right of a country to control its borders is not a license for lawlessness.

Daniel Garza

This is going to take a while. In the meantime we will make sure our voice is heard.

Donald J. Trump

You're going to have a deportation force. And your going to do it humanely.

Bob Libal

They're handing the keys to a deportation machine over to the Trump administration. And I think there's no reason to believe that the Trump administration won't drive that machine forward through human rights protections or due process protections people in the detention system.

Donald J. Trump

After the border is secure and after everything gets normalised, we're going to make a determination on the people that they're talking about – who are terrific people. They're terrific people, but we are going to make a determination at that. But before we make that determination … it's very important, we are going to secure our border.

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

People are entitled to due process in their removal proceedings. You can't just scoop people up, put them on a plane and have them be gone.

Stephen Legomsky

If Congress were to appropriate more funds for enforcement, then he could go after garden-variety undocumented immigrants. It's very hard to predict how much money Congress will want to appropriate for that purpose.

Muzaffar Chishti

President Trump would be confronted by two very important impediments – resources and the constitution.

Ali Noorani

If they're going to set an arbitrary number, they're going to waste valuable law enforcement resources and detain and deport fathers, mothers and children who are stuck in a broken immigration system.

Carlos Rojas

We know that there are going to be people on both sides of the issue. But I think that what no one could argue with is that a university and a college campus have a moral responsibility to make the students that are paying tuition and just want to get an education feel safe.

Gillian Christensen - Homeland Security

The ICE and CBP sensitive locations policies, which remain in effect, provide that enforcement actions at sensitive locations should generally be avoided, and require either prior approval from an appropriate supervisory official or exigent circumstances necessitating immediate action.

Gillian Christensen - Homeland Security

DHS is committed to ensuring that people seeking to participate in activities or utilize services provided at any sensitive location are free to do so without fear or hesitation.

Miriam Zamudio

We don't know what Trump is going to do. We don't know if he is going to demand this information, and we want our administration and our school to stand with us.

Matt Adams

These cities have reaffirmed they're going to respect the dignity of all their residents. What they're saying is, We're not going to use our resources to separate families, to deport children, to tear communities apart.

Donald J. Trump

What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate. But we're getting them out of our country, they're here illegally.

Dianne Louis

I will not let them deport him. We are already thinking ahead... we gotta ship our stuff, gotta buy airline tickets.

Gary Burtless - Brookings Institution

Many of those products on Wal-Mart and Best Buy shelves are made in China. If we slap 40 percent tariffs on them, we'll pay more.

Brandon Whitt

I walked into an 8th grade job fair last Friday and one of the first questions I got was from a girl who asked why I didn't wear overalls. There's a huge disconnect.

Kimberly Coerr

Released from restrictions they can put us in another case where banks can run rampant and fail and hurt us all over again.

Brandon Whitt

I saw a rural America, blue-collar, hat-wearing Americans that get out and work with their hands that stood up and expressed themselves. We gathered in churches and communities all across the countryside and we voted for what we thought provided a better opportunity for our families and our country as a whole.

Dora Rodriguez

When (former California Gov.) Pete Wilson was here, I heard the same ... and nothing happened.

Michael Nazario

I feel bothered by this election but it only inspires me to just keep going forward because what's at stake is not only my deferred action but my family as well, my father, my mother and the 11 million immigrants all across the country.

Matt Lee

People are not sure if Trump will definitely carry out what he said because it is a crazy idea. Now the crazy idea of him being elected – that happened. Nothing is certain.

Alicia Ramirez

We're afraid. We've got to be careful because the smallest mistake, he's going to kick us out.

Dora Rodriguez

When (former California Governor) Pete Wilson was here, I heard the same ... and nothing happened.

Sana Altaf

I have been crying all night, this morning. It's like someone telling you you're not welcome here.

Lidia Calvo

She shared with me that somebody said to her .... have you packed your bags already?

Lorena Gonzalez

The government now has a list of people who are here without documentation – their names, their addresses, how long they've been here, where they work.

Humberto Roque Villanueva

They wouldn't be retaliatory measures. They would be legal responses. We'll be ready for all the craziness.

Humberto Roque Villanueva

It may well be that deportations of the estimated 6 million undocumented Mexicans increase but we don't think it will be a measure that will take place soon or happen quickly. The Mexicans over there are useful to the North American economy and President Trump, the president-elect, will need to recognize the economic effects of such a campaign promise.

Humberto Roque Villanueva

The Mexicans over there are useful to the North American economy and President Trump, the president-elect, will need to recognize the economic effects of such a campaign promise.

Abdul Hameed Jalili

On the coming Monday, she will be deported. The government and the people of Afghanistan await Sharbat Gula with great emotion, and will welcome her very warmly.

Leslie R. Caldwell - Justice Department

This transnational criminal ring targeted victims in the United States, impersonating IRS, Immigration, police and other government officials, and demanded immediate payments to avoid deportation, arrest warrants or to cover allegedly unpaid income taxes. They tricked frightened individuals by targeting their worst fears.

Leslie R. Caldwell - Justice Department

The U.S. government does not operate in this manner. We never call to demand that money be loaded immediately onto prepaid cards. U.S. government agencies do not call to demand immediate payments to avoid deportation or to avoid arrest.

Emily Kessel

We are appalled by the unjust deportation of our friend and fellow adoptee who was adopted by U.S. citizens as a child and is a survivor of unspeakable abuse and trauma. It is time for lawmakers to stop making excuses and pass legislation that will put an end to the deportation of Americans. Because that is what adoptees are. Americans.

Hillary Clinton

But I want to put our resources where I think they are most needed: Getting rid of any violent person. Anybody who should be deported, we should deport them.

Jeh Johnson

We will have to deal with that situation, address it, be sympathetic to the plight of the people of Haiti as a result of the hurricane. But after that situation, after that condition has been addressed, we intend to resume the policy change that I brought about several weeks ago.

Andrea Guerrero

It is an unstable and unsafe place, and it's pretty clear that the conditions in Haiti have not improved.

Ginger Jacobs

Haiti has limited resources, limited employment opportunities and if deported, these people have a limited chance of prospering in such desperate conditions.

Marleine Bastien

The country has been dealing with so many traumas and natural disasters, and then you come with this change of policy at this 10th hour?

Samuel Pierre

I do understand that there was an influx of Haitians in southern California.

Samuel Pierre

However I do think that when you do start to single out specific community groups, you are opening a can of worms.

Pernille Vermund

To stop the process of asylum cases in Denmark, to demand that foreigners are able to provide for themselves, and of course to deport criminal foreigners after the first conviction.

Donald J. Trump

Sometimes it's just not going to work out. It's our right, as a sovereign nation, to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

We will build a great wall along the southern border. And Mexico will pay for the wall – 100 percent. They don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall.

Donald J. Trump

It's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us. If we can save American lives, American jobs and American futures, together we can save America itself.

Donald J. Trump

We will build a great wall along the southern border. And Mexico will pay for the wall - 100 percent. They don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall.

Donald J. Trump

It's our right, as a sovereign nation, to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

In a Trump administration all immigration laws will be enforced. We will set priorities. But unlike this administration, no one will be immune or exempt from enforcement.

Alfonso Aguilar

For the last two months, he said he was not going to deport people without criminal records. He actually said that he was going to treat undocumented immigrants without criminal record in a humane and compassionate way. He said he was going to soften his position. He's basically saying, we deport you or we self-deport you. It's even worse than what he initially proposed.

Benjy Sarlin - NBC News

But he also promised a major expansion of enforcement in general, including a recommitment to an earlier proposal to triple the number of ICE agents devoted to enforcing immigration laws within the country. He proposed requiring all businesses to use an e-verify system to screen illegal workers and a return to work-site raids.

Benjy Sarlin - NBC News

[T]he overall message was clear. When it comes to Trump's platform now, and not in some hypothetical land where illegal immigration has been ended, the plan is mass deportation.

Angelica Salas

Trump tripled down on hate and fear-mongering. A 10-point deportation plan is still mass deportation and the American public should see right through Trump's charade.

Donald J. Trump

Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. There will be no amnesty.

Donald J. Trump

We will build a great wall along the southern border. And Mexico will pay for the wall.

Donald J. Trump

It's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

It's our right, as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

If we only enforce the laws against crime, then we have an open border to the entire world. We will issue detainers for illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever and they will be placed in immediate removal proceedings – if we even have to do that.

Donald J. Trump

It's our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive, and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

We will build a great wall along the southern border, and Mexico will pay for the wall. Remember – 100 percent. They don't know it yet, but they're going to pay for the wall.

Dan Stein

But even more important than the details of the plan itself, Trump laid out the most fundamental principle for true immigration reform: The policy exists to protect and serve 'the well-being of the American people,' and 'protect all aspects of American life.

Donald J. Trump

We will break the cycle of amnesty and illegal immigration. We will break the cycle. There will be no amnesty. Our message to the world will be this: You cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country. Can't do it.

Donald J. Trump

Remember, America first. We agreed in the meeting on the need to stop the illegal flow of guns, drugs, cash and people across the border and to take out the cartels.

Donald J. Trump

We agreed in the meeting on the need to stop the illegal flow of guns, drugs, cash and people across the border and to take out the cartels. Our country is being poisoned.

Donald J. Trump

It is our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.

Donald J. Trump

Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation. There will be no amnesty. We have to listen to the concerns that working people, our forgotten working people, have over the record pace of immigration and its impact on their jobs, wages, housing, schools, tax bills and general living conditions.

Donald J. Trump

As with any law enforcement activity we will set priorities, but unlike this administration no one will be immune or exempt. Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation – that is what it means to have laws and to have a country.

Jennifer Palmieri - Clintons

What ultimately matters is what Donald Trump says to voters in Arizona, not Mexico, and whether he remains committed to the splitting up of families and deportation of millions.

Donald J. Trump

You are going to have a deportation force, and you are going to do it humanely.

Roy Beck

Mr. Trump got to where he is today by championing immigration policies that are good for the American worker. Pulling away from talk last year of deportation policy, mass round-ups, will not hurt him with those wage-earning voters, as long as his other talk about his positions holds tight to keeping American workers central.

Hillary Clinton

I've laid out the best I could, the specific plans and ideas that I want to pursue as your president because I have this old-fashioned idea. When you run for president, you ought to tell people what you want to do as their president.

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

His position is going to be tough, his position is going to be fair, but his position is going to be humane. He is going to build and complete the border wall that was set in place in 2006 by Congress – it's going to be paid for. I believe that he is going to, when he talks about deportation, he's going to go after people who are here and are criminals and shouldn't be here.

Mike Pence

You couldn't have a more clear choice between Donald Trump and I, who will end illegal immigration in this country, and Hillary Clinton. She put some sort of a racist intention on those Americans. I think that's deeply offensive. But here's the thing: The American people see right through it these days.

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

Well, you're going to find out from Donald Trump very shortly. He's going to be giving prepared remarks on this issue, I think, very soon. I don't want to give a date.

Donald J. Trump

On Day One, I am going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country – including removing the hundreds of thousands of criminal illegal immigrants that have been released into U.S. communities under the incompetent Obama-Clinton Administration.

Tobias Plate

The Syrian in Ansbach was facing deportation and this was to Bulgaria.

Tobias Plate

Syrians cannot at the moment be deported to Syria at the moment, but that doesn't mean that Syrians overall cannot be deported.

Phil Robertson - Human Rights Watch

This group should be allowed to appeal their deportation in a full and fair hearing in a court of law rather than be hustled on to a plane and sent to an uncertain fate back in China.

Juan Jose Gutierrez

He's threatened that should he become president of the United States, in his first 18 months in office, he fully intends to deport all 11 million-plus undocumented persons in the United States. We don't take that lightly.

Ted Cruz

And they've gone down and told Republican party bosses that everything Donald has said on the campaign is just a show; he doesn't believe any of it. He's not going to build a wall. He's not going to deport anyone. This is just a lie.

Stamatis Giannisis - Euronews

Both the Pope and the Greek Orthodox Patriarch emphasise that their visit to Lesbos is purely humanitarian. But the image of the two supreme Christian leaders meeting with refugees, some of them bound for deportation, will likely bring the controversies of the recent EU deal with Turkey back into the spotlight.

Michael Kaufman

Poverty or lack of financial resources should not deprive a person of his or her freedom while in civil immigration proceedings. Such detention violates the due process and equal protection guarantees of the Fifth Amendment, the Eighth Amendment's Excessive Bail Clause and the immigration laws.

Marco Rubio

I think you always prioritize criminals and dangerous people for deportation. I don't think that -- and -- and now, deportation is – is the final process in a longer process when someone is in this country without status and here illegally.

Simonetta Sommaruga

Today was an important day, which affirmed Switzerland's rule of law. We did not enhance the rule of law in Switzerland, but the voters today did defend the rule of law.

Ted Cruz

Listen, we should enforce the law. How do we enforce the law? Yes, we should deport them. We should build a wall. We should triple the Border Patrol. And federal law requires that anyone here illegally that's apprehended should be deported.

Ellen Roberts

We're here today, standing in solidarity, in support with the family and with the doctors and the hospital.

Chris Christie

America needs a Washington-to-English dictionary so they can understand what these people are talking about.

Donald J. Trump

I'm going to create a new special Deportation Task Force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice, just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice.

Angela Merkel

You know, in Palestinian refugee camps, in Lebanon, there are thousands and thousands of people and if we say they can all come and they can all come from Africa, we can't manage that. So we are caught in this difficulty and the best thing we can do is avoid taking too long to reach a decision about deportation. But some will have to go back.

Selma Bekhelifa

No one is looking at the psychological reports showing that detention is traumatising this little girl.

Anne Malherbe

She was arrested in the first days of her school holidays. It makes me ashamed to be Belgian.

Larissa Elwin

Dutch peackeepers acted unlawfully by cooperating with the deportation by the Bosnian Serbs. It can be said with sufficient certainty that the 300 men who where taken would have lived if the Dutch peacekeepers had acted properly.

Tassos Anastasiades

They (the government) are trying now to play the racist card. So that people will be distracted from what is really happening in their pockets and in their everyday life and try to blame immigrants for all the things that are going wrong in Greece.

Tony Blair

We are today signalling a new approach for deportation orders. Let no one be in any doubt, the rules of the game are changing.

Theresa May

I hardly need to tell the House, (that) the government strongly disagrees with this ruling. Qatada is a dangerous man, a suspected terrorist who is accused of serious crimes in his home country of Jordan.

Tony Blair

The Home Secretary today publishes new grounds for deportation and exclusion. Deportation is a decision taken by the Home Secretary under statute. The new grounds will include fostering hatred, advocating violence to further a person's beliefs or justifying or validating such violence.

Krzysztof Stepinski

The court prolonged the temporary arrest for the longest possible period, which is 100 days. That means that Brodsky will leave Poland within 100 days unless an appeal is accepted.

Barack Obama

If you've been in America for more than 5 years, if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents, if you register, pass a criminal background check and you're willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you'll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily, without fear of deportation, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law, that's what this deal is.
