Trump: We Will Have A ‘Deportation Force’
Donald Trump loves to talk about deporting people “humanely,” which is like saying we’ll assault people, but it won’t hurt.
Trump said Wednesday that he would have a humane “deportation force” to kick out people who reside in the US illegally.
During a lengthy interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” host Mika Brzezinski repeatedly pressed the Republican presidential candidate on his sweeping plan to crack down on illegal immigration.
“OK, conceptually, I understand what you’re saying and what you’re describing. But still tell me the how. Are you going to have a massive deportation force?” Brzezinski asked, according to a show transcript.
Trump said he would have such a force but argued that it would not be as ominous as it might sound. Trump wants to deport everyone currently living in the US illegally, a number the Pew Research Center estimated to be above 11 million last year, but let the “wonderful cases” back into the country.
“You’re going to have a deportation force, and you’re going to do it humanely and you’re going to bring the country — and, frankly, the people, because you have some excellent, wonderful people, some fantastic people that have been here for a long period of time,” the real-estate mogul replied.
