Washington, June 27 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump has announced immigrants should be deported “immediately” -- without seeing judges and without due process.  In a series of xenophobic tweets, Trump wrote: “We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country.  When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came.” 

Observers say that Donald Trump was forced, under enormous pressure, to sign an executive order last week reversing his administration’s practice of separating children from their parents at the border in violation of international law. 

Trump’s latest attack on immigrants -- demanding they be deported without legal process -- comes as protests continue across the United States, demanding the reunification of families separated at the border, an end to the crackdown on immigrants and the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE. 

Hundreds of protesters have launched ongoing “Occupy ICE” encampments blockading ICE facilities in New York City; Los Angeles; Portland, Oregon; and Tacoma, Washington.  In McAllen, Texas, protesters temporarily blocked a bus carrying migrant children from leaving a migrant detention center, chanting: “Set the children free.” 

Also in McAllen, Dolores Huerta; Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy; and other activists and celebrities gathered near the federal courthouse to launch a 24-day hunger strike to call attention to the 2,400 children forcibly separated from their parents at the border over the last two months. 

Meanwhile, over 5,000 people marched in San Diego, California, while in Emeryville, California, artists scaled a billboard on Interstate 80, altering a billboard that originally read “We make junk disappear” to instead read “We make kids disappear -- ICE.” 

Hundreds more protesters rallied in Tornillo, Texas, to demand children be freed from the newly-constructed “tent city,” where the migrant children are currently being imprisoned. 

All this comes as hundreds of migrants are still camped out on the Mexican side of the U.S. border, waiting to be allowed to apply for political asylum, according to international law.  Despite Trump’s executive order last week ending family separation, many say they still fear being forcibly separated from their children.
