U.S. special envoy in the United States Babe Romualdez said that more than 300,000 Filipinos illegally staying in the United States may face deportation.
In an interview conducted by CNN Philippines Romualdez said that she received that information from friends in Washington, D.C. that there’s a list from the US Department of Homeland Security showing about 310,000 Filipinos up for deportation.
“These are mostly undocumented Filipinos that they are able to identify,” Romualdez added.
The Philippines is not in U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive order banning the entry into America of citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
But as Trump follows through on his promise to secure U.S. borders, Romualdez warned, Filipinos in the U.S. could be affected as authorities step up its sweep of illegal immigrants.
Romualdez, however, added he did not see the specific list of names of Filipinos facing deportation, and does not have information as to how the names were gathered.
He also said thousands more Filipinos could be added to that list, and advises those who don’t have legal papers to consider leaving the US soon.
“I think they should really be prepared to go home,” he said.
