“Donald Trump isn’t planning to create a deportation force to rid the country of more than 11 million undocumented immigrants,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis) said.

Letter to the editor

The president-elect has previously called for a deportation force, but Speaker Ryan has confirmed that securing the border between the U.S. and Mexico will be the first priority.

Ryan said, ”We are not planning on erecting a deportation force.  Donald Trump is not planning on that. That’s not what we’re focused on.  We’re focused on securing the border.  We think that’s first and foremost before we get into any other immigration issue.  We’ve got to know who’s coming and going in the country.”

President-elect Donald Trump reaffirmed this, and expressed that he is going to get the people who are criminals and have criminal records, gang members and drug dealers, either out of the country or he will see that they are incarcerated.  You can view the President-elects interview on CBS’s '60 Minutes', which is set to air tonight.

After the border is secure, President-elect Trump conveyed he is going to make a determination on the terrific people who are already living and working in our country.

The American Dairy Coalition is on the ground working on a new immigration policy on behalf of our members.  We have been in close contact with Speaker Ryan’s office and will continue to work with the Speaker along with other Republican leaders to ensure the industry has access to a reliable labor force.   This is vital to maintain and grow dairy, livestock and agriculture businesses in the United States.
