Trump’s “Deportation Force” Too Nuts For Even Bill O’Reilly

Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola | (The Young Turks Video Report) | – –

“Donald Trump has elaborated on his immigration policy. He plans on assembling a “Deportation Force” to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. Bill O’Reilly thought it was a bit far-fetched. Ana Kasparian (The Point) and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down.

“Donald Trump on Wednesday morning explained that he will deport undocumented immigrants from the United States if elected president with a “deportation force” that removes people “humanely.”

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump said that the U.S. has conducted mass deportations in the past while discussing his plan to boot all undocumented immigrants from the country.

“Look, we have to do what we have to do, and Ike did it and other people have done it,” he said, alluding to Dwight Eisenhower’s “Operation Wetback” in the 1950s, a model Trump has cited before. The former president deported hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants and dropped them off in remote areas of Mexico without the means to travel home.”

  1. Trump seems to assume Mexico will go along with this mass deportation even though it will produce chaos there. What happens if the Mexicans close the border to the 250,000 busloads of deported immigrants? And Mexico closes its air space? Halts efforts to control drug traffic as long as it is for export? Presumably the US Army will shoot its way into northern Mexico to open routes for busloads of deportees.

    • This is why I don’t get people who think that Trump is less likely to start a war as President than one of the candidates who has more experience in government. He has based his entire appeal on being the opposite of diplomatic. For a country, the alternative to negotiation is not ignoring a problem, the alternative is war.
