‘This is what we’re up against.’ Immigrant rights activists decry ‘Mass Deportation Now!’ RNC convention signs

Trump supporters marked the third day of the GOP convention on Wednesday by waving signs declaring “Mass Deportation Now!,” as Republican leaders railed against illegal immigration and demonized undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

“Send them back!” attendees chanted, prompted by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who spoke at the convention, and who said Donald Trump would “arrest the criminal illegal immigrants and put them behind bars.”

He lambasted the Biden administration for standing against his efforts to secure the border, “to take back our land and wire it shut.”
