Congressional Trump backer says Trump wants just ‘virtual wall,’ ‘rhetorical deportations’
Trump’s supporters are willing to make any excuse for his inane and ever-changing policy positions. Take New York Congressman Chris Collins, for example.
Trump has talked about getting tough by building a wall and carrying out mass deportations, but Collins spoke to The Buffalo News and used the word “virtual” to describe both of those.
He referred to the proposed border wall as a “virtual wall” and said, “Maybe we will be building a wall over some aspects of it; I don’t know.”
…And here’s what he had to say about mass deportations:
“They go out that door, they go in that room, they get their work papers, Social Security number, then they come in that door, and they’ve got legal work status but are not citizens of the United States. So there was a virtual deportation as they left that door for processing and came in this door.”
He also said, “I call it a rhetorical deportation of 12 million people.”
