The news came as President Donald Trump lashed out again at undocumented immigrants on Wednesday, telling reporters, “These aren’t people. These are animals.”

President Donald Trump: “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in—we’re stopping a lot of them—but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.”
