Trump: ‘Military operation’ against illegal immigrants in US is underway

US President Donald Trump said Thursday that his administration is conducting a "military operation" for the location, arrest and deportation of undocumented immigrants. Trump's remark was a surprise because the administration was said to have no known plans to use the National Guard or any other military troops for the effort, only units from the Department of Homeland Security.

He made the comments at a roundtable discussion with CEOs of manufacturing companies at the White House.
