I just don’t see how we can have a president who commits these kinds of verbal gaffes:
Donald Trump‘s plan to crack down on immigration includes using a range of tools to deport millions of people in the U.S. each year — from obscure laws to military funds to law enforcement officers from all levels of government.
Why it matters: History tells us such an effort would dramatically disrupt local communities and economies across the U.S. — and sow fear among the millions of people without legal status.
- If elected, Trump wants to mobilize ICE agents — along with the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, federal prosecutors, the National Guard, and even state and local law enforcement officers — to carry out deportations of undocumented immigrants, a source familiar with the plan told Axios.
- Trump has long campaigned on anti-immigrant fears. “They’re poisoning the blood of our country,” he said at a rally last month, a line he repeats often.
I’m sure everyone who got targeted by these actions would be gratified to know that the president who ordered them was almost four years younger than his opponent.
