Trump: deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants


On Wednesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump offered some specifics about what his immigration policy would be after launching his presidential candidacy last month insisting that many undocumented Mexican immigrants were “rapists.”

Trump told CNN that he would deport all of the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. and that he would consider letting “the good ones” back into the country. As for undocumented young people who were brought to the U.S. as infants and children, Trump expressed that he was unsure if he would allow them to stay, commenting that “it depends.”

A poll released today shows that Trump leads the presidential GOP field, polling ahead of Scott Walker and Jeb Bush. This indicates that Trump’s nativist language and attitude toward immigrants does not seem to hurt his standing with Republican voters.

  1. Why have a legal process if others are allowed to bypass it and walk right in without recourse? We’ve allowed this to continue to the point where illegal aliens have come in, settled, made friends, families, etc and now no one wants to see their friends get deported. Why are those who have entered illegally being treated better than those who have applied, waited their turn, and paid their fees? Deport them. If they really want to be here, they will go about it the right way. Apply, show means of financial support and have a sponsor, learn English. I did and it’s not so bad. It’s insulting to those like me who came here according to the laws of this country. I’m grateful to be here. I am a part of America, not a foreigner who refuses to learn the language, not someone who refuses to assimilate. I left my home country for a reason. I’m not looking to duplicate it here in yours.
