Trump's planned deportations are mainly for show. That's all.

These planned deportations.... are mainly for show. There are two main audiences. One is the nativists in Mr. Trump’s political base, who may have noticed that despite his huffing and puffing — and very likely partly because of it — undocumented migrants are entering the country at a rate unseen in more than a decade. .... The other audience is prospective migrants in Central America, whom the administration would like to deter by sending the message, with its deportation show of force, that trekking across the border is likely to be costly and ultimately fruitless.

1. Your post minimizes FROTUS's intent. It's not just for show. His intent is to devastate his victims.

Devastate, demolish, obliterate their lives and their family’s lives. Traumatize their children for the rest of their lives.

3. Just to be clear....

.... the post is FYI for DUers following the issue, not because I think it's the full picture. He and his followers are cruel and vindictive, so it's not JUST for show, and even if it was the consequences would be as you describe.

5. If Trump is really wanting to go after folks his admin has deportation orders for....

he did not have to announce it, it doesn't make much sense to announce it.

Yes, people we are coming to serve this order but we are giving you warning.

So bee ess.

Next, if he is sending hundreds of ICE teams to in a mass sweep that is intimidation not law enforcement.

Trump's intent is no matter what happens he will proclaim victory.

In that regard it is a show, but that nothing to be minimized with this fascist freak.

Normalize what is for show today, in few months he will have violating the Constitution.

Trump keeps on lying and keeps on attacking and keeps normalizing his agenda.

IMO that is the real threat. Trump's fascist populism will spread.
