Donald Trump Has Released an Immigration Policy Plan and It’s Completely Insane

Donald Trump has actually released an immigration policy plan, which is more than any of the other candidates have done.

However.

It’s absolutely insane. Xenophobia completely off the scale. We’re talking batshit, cubed.

Let me summarize this bizarre fear-mongering screed.

Trump insists he’s going to build a gigantic impenetrable wall along the southern border, and he’s going to make Mexico pay for it. How does he plan to do that?

Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards - of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico [Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options]. We will not be taken advantage of anymore.

Trump plans to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, and he plans to implement this insane scheme by tripling the number of ICE agents, presumably because he’s going to need a lot of enforcers to round up all the families he needs to deport.

And last but pretty damned far from least, Trump says he’s basically going to either repeal or ignore the 14th amendment to the US Constitution, because he’s planning to end birthright citizenship. His plan doesn’t spell out exactly how he’d accomplish this, probably because he knows it’s never going to happen in the real world.

In fact, none of this is ever going to happen in the real world, and if Trump becomes president and actually tries to make it happen, it would involve turning the United States into a full-blown police state.

But I guess that prospect is attractive to conservatives.

And one final note about Trump’s plan: to back up his claims, he links to not one, not two, but six articles at the far right xenophobia-peddling website Breitbart “News.”

This has to be one of the most disturbing policy statements ever published by a Republican, and that, my friends, is really saying something.
