Among those deported too were more than 90 Somali men who were deported via Omnia international plane at 11am.

Reports carried by a local daily said the deported Somali men were then immediately flown to Mogadishu via Juba Airways.

According to the same report, American security officers who accompanied the men said the deportation was as a result of President Donald Trump's policy.

Donald Trump while campaigning to be the 45 president of the United States threatened to deport three million illegal immigrants "immediately" he was sworn into office in January.

With this recent development it seems Trump has followed through his threat.

Many opinion experts had however brushed off his threats terming them ‘empty rhetoric’ predicting instead he will tone down after winning the election.

Trump proofed them wrong and immediately swung into action after being sworn into office, signing a number of controversial bills into law such as an executive order blocking federal funding for international nongovernmental organizations that provide or "promote" abortions.

The International Organization for Migration in 2015 estimated that as of 2015, 30,000 Kenyans were residing in the United States illegaly.

These numbers are derived from visa admissions statistics and data from the US Census Bureau," the IOM report indicated.

30,000 Kenyan now face a real possibility of being deported from the USA back to their motherland, Kenya.
