Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) energized Iowa caucus attendees on Monday by imploring them to caucus for and re-elect former President Trump in 2024 in an impassioned speech.
In her address in Boone, the congresswoman emphasized immigration policy, stating unequivocally that she and President Trump would support “mass deportations” should he be re-elected.
“We have to fight for a secure border, and President Trump will do that, and he will start mass deportations on day 1. And I can’t wait to see it happen.” Greene said.
“They’re in our country, and you can bet many of them are terrorists who would like to attack our country here just like Israel was attacked by the Hamas terrorists over there,” she continued.
In his 2024 campaign, Trump has intensified his confrontational stance on immigration, threatening to launch the most extensive deportation effort in U.S. history if re-elected and employing an increasingly authoritarian tone when discussing the matter.
In addition, he has vowed to reinstate and broaden the travel ban that specifically targeted Muslim countries.
This measure was initially opposed by civil rights organizations on the grounds that it was racist and xenophobic. Furthermore, he has pledged to terminate birthright citizenship.
