Trump Favors a ‘Deportation Force’

Jesse Byrnes, The Hill, November 11, 2015

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would be in favor of a “deportation force” among other ideas for dealing with illegal immigration.

“We have to do what we have to do,” Trump said during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” after the fourth GOP debate, saying, “Other people have done it.”

“You’re going to have a deportation force,” Trump said when pressed by host Mika Brzezinski on how he would remove millions of undocumented immigrants from the U.S.

“You’re going to do it humanely,” Trump continued, noting that there are some “excellent, wonderful people, some fantastic people, that have been here a long period of time.”

“They’re going back where they came,” Trump said of those in the country illegally.
