Trump says illegal immigration roundup WILL start next week despite ICE denying they knew about it and Democratic cities saying they are gearing up to resist crackdown

Donald Trump repeated on Tuesday that immigration authorities would next week target migrants in the country illegally in large-scale arrests, but still gave no details about the planned action.

'They're going to start next week, and with people coming to our country, and they come in illegally - they have to go out,' he told reporters at the White House before flying to Florida to formally launch his re-election campaign.

Trump also praised Mexico for action he said it has taken to stem the flow of immigrants to the United States.

Former officials and immigration experts said it would be unlikely for immigration authorities to move quickly to deport 'millions' of people, but Trump's tweet on Monday saying as much put cities around the country on high alert.
