A new analysis shows that the bulk of illegals would be eligible for deportation under President Trump’s executive orders.
His executive orders apply to more than just illegals committing crimes.
It’s still unclear how President Trump will deal with “dreamers” and illegal families, but he can deport a mass number of people who are breaking the law and costing American citizens millions of dollars.

Overall, more than 11 million of the estimated 13 million-14 million illegals in the United States come under the deportation language signed by Trump, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.
In the latest post on the CIS page, Ronald W. Mortensen, a retired career U.S. Foreign Service Office, highlighted three key provisions in Executive Order 13768 that prioritize illegal immigrants for removal. They are:
— Those who “have committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense.” He said that includes entering the U.S. illegally and not through an official border crossing zone.
— Those who have committed fraud “before a governmental agency.” That would sweep most of those who claim to pay Social Security from their paychecks. He said that paying the tax would require the immigrants to receive a number fraudulently.
Mortensen cited estimations from the Los Angeles Times that over 11 million would be covered by the executive order.
