When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side.
The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It's not conservative and it's not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush.
Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish."
Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene."
But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to "literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don't know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border."
So what do these folks say about the fact that the majority of Americans back Trump on this?
The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked 913 adults coast to coast if they "support or oppose mandatory deportation of illegal immigrants in the U.S." Not surprisingly, 87% of Trump supporters back the proposal.
Politicians are appalled because they never intended to do anything in the first place.
I wasn't polled, but I agree with it if it is done right.
I wonder all these politicians from the right what are they covering up. Is it cheap labor? No, Hilliary we just want to enforce the laws and get these scumbags out of the USA.
This is an eye opener... if you really needed one! With a statement from both parties against deportation it is no surprise where the GOP stands... RINO'S by the truck load. We have to rid ourselves of this current system!!!!
The RINO's must go starting with congress.
Vote Trump / Palin / Trey / Cruz
Donald is standing for what most American's are feeling , and yes hillary we wan't them pulled from every where they are and Deported Now and it doesn't matter how they get transported .Deport them Now. Senat and Congress instead of opposing him should embrace him , You would think they would get the hint that what their Not doing isn't working and isn't what the American people want .
I could not of said it better, Vote Trump.
The people of this country need to wake up and realize what is happening in Europe with the muslam crowd flowing into there countries. The ass in the WH is doing the same thing here by the buss load. When this is all over he will be livening in Kenya as the big boss. It is not to late just put Trump in and watch the fur fly.
Could this be a catch release scam?? They go back and on week later they are let back in. Good for show but does not solve the problem. He must explain this in major detail. We the people backed some other republicans and got screwed never again without details.
I'll volunteer to drive one of the busses. They came here ILLEGALLY, so what don't bush, clinton and the rest understand? IF I rob a bank will I get a free ride? I don't think so and illegals shouldn't either. That's how I feel....
I wasn't asked, either but you can add a bunch to that GROWING LIST!!!!!!!!! Can't happen quick enough. By the way add BO to the deportation list! He's as much American as Adolf!
