With the recent ascent to the throne, President Donald Trump’s government is making the illegal aliens in the US quite worried. Not only is it the illegal aliens, but also their original countries from where they came from as they are dependent on these remittances, read: lucrative Benjamin’s that come from the US.

Countries like Jamaica are bracing themselves, for what many say is inevitable – mass deportation of aliens and the significant reduction in remittances.

 

Walker-Huntington said the country needs to be prepared for an increase in the number of deportees. “It [deportation] is going to happen,” she stressed. Speaking at the Victoria Mutual Wealth Management Economic Forum, under the theme “TRUMPONOMICS: Repercussions for Jamaica” on Monday, Walker-Huntington said there are some 70,000 undocumented people, who recently arrived in the US and are sending back remittances to Jamaica.
