Donald Trump finally released some details on his immigration “plan” — and they’re about as realistic as his hairline.
“‘We have to get them out’: that’s the plan Republican candidate Donald Trump has for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States,” said Univision anchor Jorge Ramos during a Spanish-language segment on Trump last night.
“Trump didn’t explain how he’d round up and deport these immigrants, he didn’t say if he’d use busses or planes or use the Army. He didn’t want to give any details,” Ramos continued.
“But he did say in an interview that he’d allow ‘good immigrants’ back in…making it the first time the leading Republican candidate — according to the polls — has explained his plan for immigrants already here.”
In the Univision segment, America’s Voice founder Frank Sharry expressed disbelief at the “plan,” saying:
“And after deporting them, Donald Trump, like in some television reality show, would say, ‘Hmm, who gets back in and who doesn’t?’ It’s ridiculous. This is not a serious plan, it’s an idiotic plan.”
As the segment notes, Trump’s mass-deportation plan to round up those dangerous undocumented grandmothers would cost between an estimated $400 billion and $600 billion in total, and would take an estimated 20 years to complete.
“What Donald Trump is saying is to the extreme right of Mitt Romney,” said Sharry.
As Ramos himself said in a series of blistering tweets yesterday, “This is how you lose the Hispanic vote.”
