GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump quadrupled down on his pledge to deport all of the illegal immigrants in the US if he is elected:
Trump forcefully defended the controversial proposal that fueled his candidacy since summer, in which he would deport all undocumented immigrants and construct a wall along the border with Mexico to keep them out.
“We are a country of laws, we need borders, we will have a wall, the wall will be built, the wall will be successful and if you think walls don’t work, all you have to do is ask Israel,” said the reality television star. “The wall will work, properly done. Believe me.”
So the Donald is willing to risk destroying the economy identifying, arresting and deporting 11 million residents…not only will that take millions out of the US workforce, I can’t imagine what the cost could possibly amount to if we would actually try to accomplish that.
And I wonder how many of his housekeeping staff at his Trump hotels would suddenly need to be replaced under such an insane scenario.
BTW: The Canadian candidate, Senator Ted Cruz piled on Mr. Trumps bandwagon:
Cruz said that for many voters, illegal immigration is “a very personal economic issue” and added: “We’re tired of being told it’s ‘anti-immigrant.’ It’s offensive. I am the son of an immigrant who came legally from Cuba to seek the American dream, and we can embrace legal immigration while believing in the rule of law.”
The senator ignores one major issue around US Immigration laws…because of our 50 year antagonism with the Castro regime…Cuban refugees have had a very favored status amongst both legal and illegal immigrants.
