Trump is still talking about deportation, and that's encouraging. The morning after the debate, he spoke about it.
Wednesday (November 11th) on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said to remove the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants living in the Untied States, he would have a “deportation force.”Donald Trump: We Will Have a 'Deportation Force' by Pam Key, Breitbart, Nov. 11, 2015
Sounds good. A force especially designed to deport. Any government that formed a deportation force would be indicating its seriousness in taking on the problem. It would be a good sign.
Trump said, “You’re going to have a deportation force. And your going to do it humanly. And you’re going to bring the country —frankly, you have excellent, wonderful people. fantastic people who have been here for a period of time. Don’t forget you have millions of people that are waiting on a line to come into this country and come in legally. I always say the wall. We’re going to build the wall and it’s going to be a real deal. There’s going to be a real wall. There’s going to be a picture of magazines where they’re taking drugs over the wall and built a ramp and the truck is going up and down. The wall is like a highway. It’s not going to happen. It’s going to be a Trump wall. It going to be a real wall. It’s going to stop people and it’s going to be good.”
Some of the things Trump has said, such as about bringing illegals back in after being deported, don't make sense. But on the main point, he's talking about deportation, and keeps talking about deportation, and is defending deportation. That's positive.
He continued, “There’s going to be a big beautiful nice door. People are going to come in and they are come in legally. We have no choice. otherwise, we don’t have a country. We don’t know how many people. We don’t know if it’s 8 million, 20 million. We have no idea how many people are in our country and then you see what happened with Kate in San Francisco. You see what happens with all of the things going on. All of the tremendous crime going on. It cost us 200 billion a year for illegal immigration right now, maybe 250, maybe 300. They don’t know. We are going to stop it.”
Trump sounds determined, we can only hope he maintains this determination.
And next time the "we can't or won't deport them all" argument comes up, point out that we don't have to deport them all. Once the illegal aliens see our government is serious about deporting illegal aliens, many of them would self-deport.
