Former President Donald Trump's reported immigration policies for a potential second term have drawn strong criticism from President Joe Biden's 2024 campaign.

According to a recent New York Times report, Trump, in collaboration with adviser Stephen Miller, plans to implement aggressive measures against undocumented immigrants if re-elected.

The proposed policies include rounding up millions of undocumented individuals and placing them in large detention camps, awaiting deportation.

The operation would reportedly involve reallocating federal law enforcement and National Guard members.

Other controversial measures involve denying automatic citizenship to children born to undocumented parents and restricting visas based on ideological differences.

Biden's campaign team has sharply criticized these proposals, labeling them as "extreme, racist, cruel," and designed to incite fear and division among Americans.

The campaign statement emphasized that these policies aim to leverage a divided and frightened nation for electoral success, contrary to the unity and hope that led to Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's election in 2020.

The Biden campaign warns of the "horrifying reality" that could ensue if Trump is allowed back into the Oval Office, urging voters to remember Trump's open discussions of his plans at rallies and to take his words seriously.

The campaign remains confident that the American electorate will once again choose unity over division and hope over fear in the upcoming election, as they did in 2020.
