Trump’s Homeland Security pick ready to deport illegals ASAP

Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Department of Homeland Security promised that he would work to “rapidly” deport illegal immigrants.

“The Congress has passed longstanding laws making foreign nationals without legal status removable from the United States, and it is proper for DHS, like any other law enforcement organization, to faithfully execute the laws on the books,” retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly said in a written answer to questions by the Senate Homeland Security Committee as his confirmation hearing started Tuesday.
