Donald Trump says illegal immigrants ‘have to go.’ Only 31 percent of Republicans agree

Source: Washington Post

Bolded in his newly released plan on how Donald Trump would solve our country's immigration problems if he becomes president ... Trump proposes ... deporting immigrants convicted of a crime and detaining and deporting immigrants caught crossing the border illegally .... he would kick out most immigrants who are in the country illegally...:

TODD: You'll rescind that one, too? You'll rescind the Dream Act executive order, the DACA?
TRUMP: We have to make a whole new set of standards. And when people come in, they have to come in ... we're going to keep the families together. We have to keep the families together.
TODD: But you're going to kick them out?
TRUMP: They have to go.... Chuck, we either have a country or we don't have a country. Either we have a country or not.

As with many things Trump, he's appealing to a vocal minority of Americans. And on this particular issue, he's also appealing to a vocal minority of his fellow Republicans — most of whom disagree with him.... Gallup found that 65 percent of all Americans favored some sort of path to citizenship. The next-most-popular option was deportation, but just 19 percent favored that option, while 14 percent wanted to let them stay for limited amount of time.

2. The First

time I remember seeing about the Mexican border crossings was on the
old CBS show West 57th, about 1987. No one did anything about it when
something could have been done. Now it's too late, it's an established
practice, these people have built lives and provide labor to the economy,
and yes they have families too.

I keep saying Trump is like the 1970s and 80s all over again. The issues
have moved on, but he hasn't.

3. B.S. Poll

I call B.S. No way Trump would be so far ahead if so many disagreed with him.

5. Well there are levels of disagreement

 

Recognizing his plan can't be done or it's not the best solution doesn't neccesarily mean they actually care enough to change their vote. No one I've interacted with actually supports him for any real actionable policy he has put forward. It's mostly his tough talking personality and ability to really magnify the flaws of his opponents that is getting him the support, imo. I honestly thought he'd get shredded once the debates began, but the other GOP candidates don't know how to handle him. Most of them have been exposed as not being more intelligent or reasonable than him, just more reheared.

6. This confirms the lead he has

He is polling at around 30% of republican primary voters.
This, in the minds of the MSM asswipes, is an astounding lead.

8. It's not just immigration that

 

has trump with the lead. The pubs are spitting angry that after winning the whole of congress in 2014, they've gotten zip, nada, zero, bupkis from their leadership. I guess voting over and over and over again to repeal the ACA doesn't have the kick it used to. These pubs are very pissed at the gop establishment and that's what has donald ahead. By the way, welcome to DU. There is nothing wrong with the poll, it's just not saying what you think it's saying.

9. I'd like to see all the jobs that illegal immigrants have and see how many "Americans" would be

willing to work them instead, for the approximately $8 to $9 per hour minimum wage.


The whole "illegal immigrants are taking jobs away from Americans that want to work them" is just garbage.
