Trump on Deportation Plan: After We Get Rid Of Cartel Members, "We're Going To Sit Back And Assess The Situation"

|

In an interview with Fox News Channel's Eric Bolling on Thursday night, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump gave more details about his changing plan to deport illegal immigrants out of the U.S.

First he plans to deport "bad players" like cartel members and drug dealers. Next, he plans to build an "inpenetrable" wall on the border. Third, he will "sit back and assess the situation."

"It's very simple, and I think people love this, and a lot of people didn't quite understand this," he said. "We are going to get rid of the thugs and the criminals and the drug dealers and all of the bad players that are here illegally... We’re getting rid of them immediately."

"We're going to strengthen the border, do it really strong, build the wall, get rid of all of the bad players; the gang members, the drug dealers, all of the cartel people," he continued.

"After that takes place," he continued. "And it will be a process that won't go that quickly, but it will go as fast as humanly possible, after that takes place we're going to sit back and assess the situation."

"Before we do anything further, we want to see how it shapes up when we have strong --I use the word inpenetrable-- border."

Full transcript:

DONALD TRUMP: Because I’m going to bring jobs back. Because we’re going to have safety. You see what’s going on in our cities, in our inner cities you take a look at the tremendous amount of crime that’s happening. Look at some of these inner cities where many, many Hispanics are living. You look at the crime where people are being shot and killed just by walking down the street, their children are being killed. They know that I will stop that so fast. One of the things in my plan is, as you know, we’re going to strengthen the border, we’re going to build the wall, more than strengthen the border we’re going to make a very strong border.

And we are going to get rid of the thugs and the criminals and the drug dealers and all of the bad players that are here illegally. That’s what we’re doing. We’re getting rid of them immediately...

ERIC BOLLING: What about the rest?

TRUMP: Very simple, and I think people love this, and a lot of people didn't quite understand this...

What happens is this: We're going to strengthen the border, do it really strong, build the wall, get rid of all of the bad players; the gang members, the drug dealers, all of the cartel people. We're going to get them out of our country...

They'll be gone. After that takes place --and it will be a process that won't go that quickly, but it will go as fast as humanly possible, after that takes place we're going to sit back and assess the situation.

We're going to see where we are with the people inside the country that have come in illegally. We're going to sit back and assess the situation. We're going to make a decision at that time. We want to see before we do anything further, we want to see how it shapes up when we have strong --I use the word inpenetrable-- border. But how it shapes up, and I think we're getting really tremendous reviews on the plan.
