Trump wants to vastly expand the use of “expedited removals” that bypass courts. Illegal expedited removals may be in Trump’s plan.
It’s unclear how many people could be deported immediately under Trump’s plan. The Pew Research Center estimates that 1.5 million undocumented immigrants have been in the U.S. for fewer than five years, but it does not have data on those in the country fewer than two years.
Homeland Security has not yet formally expanded the expedited removal process. It must first publish its new plan in the Federal Register.
