Trump wouldn’t need to issue an executive order or even get congressional approval to deport 11 million illegal US residents, says Ted Rall. Here’s what would happen next.

aNewDomain — Donald Trump has promised to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants from the United States if elected president. The optics of this forced population movement would be horrific, with millions of children who don’t remember their countries of origin ripped away from the homes in the dead of night and sent to internment camps.

And there is nothing Trump needs from Congress to make this happen. He wouldn’t even need to issue an executive order.

    Mr Trump isn’t big on logistics, how about you?

    For some scope, The US had about 12,000,000 troops in WW II, The Illegal aliens make up ~92% of that figure, Any idea of the logistics challenges of moving ~11m people?

  • Cut off all subsidies, fine those who employ or house illegals and many will self deport. The rest can easily be deported and the cost will pay for itself the first year.
