“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably 2 million, it could be even 3 million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate. But we’re getting them out of our country, they’re here illegally.”
After his immediate round of deportations Trump said, his administration would assess its policy on the remaining undocumented immigrants residing here...
“After the border is secure and after everything gets normalized, we’re going to make a determination on the people that they’re talking about who are terrific people, they’re terrific people but we are gonna make a determination at that. But before we make that determination ... it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.”
First off Trump's claim that 2 million to 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records live in the U.S. was proven to be a lie when it was fact checked by The Washington Post.
The Migration Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank, estimates that around 820,000 undocumented immigrants have criminal records which includes people whose only conviction is crossing the border illegally.
And then there's this: Trump's plan is virtually impossible.
There is no feasible way he could deport or jail that many people that quickly with the resources we as a country have at this present time.
Where will he get the manpower? Where will they be held? How will they be transported? How will it be determined where they go? How will he prevent their return?
Does he even take into consideration that most deportations are often contested in court.
How about the fact that there are only 34,000 beds the federal government reserves on a daily basis to detain migrants.
As with so many of the inane moronic ideas that excrete out of Trump's hateful brain his mass deportation threat is a lie, a farce and an offense.
