Details are starting to emerge on Donald Trump’s plans. Plans to keep the promises that he made that catapulted him to victory on election night. First up, immigration. Rather, illegal immigration.
This has been a cornerstone of his candidacy from day one and while he has shifted on the wording that he uses, we will soon get some solid details.
As reported by The Blaze, the first thing he will do, according to an interview with “60 Minutes,” is to deport all illegal immigrants that have a criminal record. These would include drug dealers, gang members and others with a criminal background.
Trump estimates that this would be up to three million illegal immigrants.
Once that is done, he would make sure that the wall is built, and then devise a plan to deal with the rest of the illegal immigrants who haven’t committed any crimes other than crossing the border without permission.
“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 going to make a determination at that,” Trump said. “But before we make that determination … it’s very important, we are going to secure our border.”
Watch the segment here:
Trump’s detractors are quick to make assertions that he is conning everyone with his talk, that there is no way this can be done. They dismiss him and his claims, but yet these were the very same people that dismissed his candidacy, that dismissed him as a serious candidate, that dismissed his chances of winning because of the inevitability of Hillary Clinton winning the election.
You would think that perhaps they might stop making claims and prognostications until after they see what he actually does. He might surprise them yet again.
