Trump Campaign Manager: Round Up And Deport Immigrants Or Have Them 'Self-Deport'

Typically when a Republican politician who opposes immigration reform is asked what he or she would do with the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., they usually give a non-answer or avoid the question altogether. But Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, a former official with the Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity, is at least giving an honest answer, telling conservative radio host John Fredericks yesterday that Trump wants to deport the 11 to 12 million undocumented immigrants living here.

“You guys are going to be committed to basically rounding anyone who is here illegally, rounding them up, and sending them back?” Fredericks asked.

“Yes, that’s right,” Lewandowski replied, before going on to claim that there may be upwards of 30 million undocumented immigrants in the country, a bogus figure that has previously been cited by Trump.

Lewandowski, sounding just like Trump, said that undocumented immigrants are “killing American citizens” and that a President Trump would build an “impenetrable” border wall: “It doesn’t matter how much water you have in your boat if you don’t stop the water from coming in you are eventually going to sink, so the first thing to do is to plug the hole, and that’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to build a wall that stops that from continuing.”

He then channeled Mitt Romney by talking about the need for “self-deportation” by making their lives difficult in the U.S. “We’re going to deport everybody and then you have the opportunity to apply to an expedited process,” he said.

Amazingly, as we noted earlier today, even with his campaign making statements like this, Trump is still not seen as extreme enough in his anti-immigrant politics by Numbers USA, the most influential anti-immigrant lobbying group. This is because Trump, although he wants to deport all of the undocumented immigrants in the country, has vaguely hinted at offering an “expedited” process for the “good” ones to apply to return. And remember, back in 2012 Trump was calling Mitt Romney’s “self-deportation” stance “crazy.”

"He had a crazy policy of self-deportation, which was maniacal," Trump told Newsmax. "It sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote." Trump added that the GOP should develop better policies "with respect to people wanting to be wonderful, productive citizens of this country."

Even Trump Not Enough Of An Anti-Immigrant Extremist For Numbers USA

Donald Trump, who shot to the top of Republican presidential polls after calling immigrants from Mexico drug dealers and rapists, will have to move even further to the right if he wants to please the prominent anti-immigrant lobbying group Numbers USA.

The group’s leader, Roy Beck, wrote in a blog post that although he appreciated Trump’s “tenacious” comments about immigrants, the candidate “stumbled” when he offered a muddled plan for what Trump called a “merit system” to “work something out” for the undocumented immigrants who aren’t the “bad ones.”

As a result, Beck docked his candidate scorecard for Trump and repeated his praise for Scott Walker and Rick Santorum (the sole recipient of an “A” grade from the organization), who have been consistently extreme on immigration, even without Trump’s attention-getting bombast.

Trump on national TV and on the Arizona border stumbled and let himself get boxed into saying he would offer amnesty to the illegal aliens who aren't the "bad ones." He seemed to be defensive and trying to prove that he isn't hostile to immigrants by also indicating he would like to see legal immigration increased.

But Walker -- ambushed by an illegal-alien family brought to Iowa to confront him in front of the national press corps -- refused to be intimidated, stood strong and unapologetic about the importance of the rule of law, and declined to concede an amnesty..

Rick Santorum in a long interview on PBS also resisted being trapped into talking about immigration issues in the paradigm the mainstream media prefers. Instead, he deftly turned the high-profile TV appearance into an appeal to set immigration policy to benefit workers and poor people.

William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC also added Trump to his “blacklist” of “amnesty supporting” politicians in wake of the billionaire’s latest remarks. Gheen explained his decision to WorldNetDaily:

“After coming out strong for a secure border and bringing attention to illegal immigrant crimes against Americans, Donald Trump is now promoting his plan to change America’s existing immigration laws to create a merit system by which illegals currently in America can stay and eventually gain voting rights where they are expected to help Democrats dominate U.S. elections forevermore,” Gheen said.


"Most Americans want to hear that America's laws will be enforced, not make new laws or change the laws to accommodate the law-breakers," he added.  "Americans like us want a constitutional government, not a Republican dictator to take over for the Democratic dictator we have in power now. "
 

Anti-Immigrant Activist: 'Child Rapists' Coming To The US Because They’ll Get Off Easier In The Justice System

Earlier this month, Tamara Scott, a conservative lobbyist and Republican national committeewoman from Iowa, invited anti-immigration activist Jim Simpson onto her weekly radio program to discuss Donald Trump’s claims that Mexican immigrants are rapists, which Simpson heartily agreed with.

Simpson, who recently authored a report for the Center for Security Policy on how communists and Islamists are using immigration to destroy America, acknowledged that immigrants may be fleeing failing states, but added that “many” of them come to the U.S. because a fairer justice system means “they can have an easier time committing crime over here.”

“Many of the people that cross the border illegally do so because they’re people that that country just doesn’t want, and they’re coming over here because there are greener pastures over here, they can have an easier time committing crime over here,” he explained.

“We have a legal system that is much more favorable to the defendant than, let’s say, Mexico, where a lot of these child rapists wouldn’t last a week in a Mexico prison, and so they come here instead. And that’s a big part of the problem. We’re attracting all kinds of very, very bad people by our loose immigration policies and our open borders policies being promoted by this, as far as I’m concerned, treasonous president.”

Scott responded that even if most immigrants weren’t child rapists, as Simpson alleged, lenience toward undocumented immigrants would still be a betrayal of the founding fathers, because “we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

“Here’s the deal,” she said. “We have the freedoms and liberties we have in this country because we allowed our forefathers, our ancestors, they fought, they risked it all, they gave oftentimes the ultimate price to ensure the unalienable rights that we have endowed by our Creator. And the fact that this country was built upon that very premise, that we recognized a Providence, a Supreme Being, mentioned four times in our Declaration in one way or another, we honored the God who we felt gave us the protection to start this country and to bless this country. So we put blood on the line to get the liberty we have, so we can’t allow others not to do the same in their country or we bring those wars here.”

Michael Savage: Obama Gave Me The Flu!

On Tuesday, conservative radio host Michael Savage told his listeners that he recently got “wiped out” by the flu, an illness he promptly blamed on President Obama.

Last year, during a summer spike in undocumented immigrant youths coming to the U.S., Savage warned listeners that the largely Central American immigrants were spreading Enterovirus D-68 to the U.S., which he referred to as “the Honduran flu.”

Savage lamented that “my body really got wasted by the Honduran flu brought in by Obama’s children last summer on those trains.”

Of course, experts report that there is no connection between immigrants and the enterovirus, and the law that blocked immediate deportation of the Central American minors was signed into law by President Bush, not Obama.

Jindal: Obama Is 'Giving Up On America' By Facilitating Immigrant 'Invasion'

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is up in arms about new Obama administration guidelines for exempting naturalized citizens who are conscientious objectors from the oath of citizenship’s promise to “bear arms” on behalf of the United States. The GOP presidential candidate told an Iowa radio program yesterday that the new exemption guidelines show that President Obama is “giving up on America” by allowing an “invasion” of unassimilated immigrants.

In 1950, Congress added the vow to “bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by law” to the oath taken by naturalized citizens after a court ruled that military service wasn’t implicitly required in the existing oath. However, new citizens taking the oath were allowed to refuse to say the line “on the basis of religious training and beliefs,” just as all citizens are allowed to opt out of military service if they are conscientious objectors.

In 2003, a Bush administration effort to modernize the oath would have removed the “bear arms” line altogether, but was rebuffed after facing conservative criticism that the line replacing it was too weak. The new Obama administration policy keeps the “bear arms” part of the oath, but updates the guidelines on who may be exempt from saying it for religious or moral reasons.

Jindal, who has tried to position himself as the Right’s foremost defender of religious freedom, reasonably reacted to this news yesterday by circulating a petition calling for the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to be fired, falsely claiming that the administration was “deleting the requirement” that naturalized immigrants vow to serve in the military, and declaring, “Immigration without assimilation is not immigration, it is invasion.”

Jindal repeated this criticism in an interview yesterday with Iowa conservative radio host Simon Conway, himself a naturalized U.S. citizen, saying, “Look, immigration without assimilation, that’s not immigration, that is an invasion.”

Jindal went on to say that by supporting this policy change, Obama has violated his own oath of office: “He takes an oath saying he’s going to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, this to me sounds like he’s giving up on America.”

Ted Cruz: I've Been Singing Donald Trump's Praises On Immigration

Ted Cruz has been more than happy to attack his Republican opponents for the presidency, save one: Donald Trump.

During an appearance on “The Jan Mickelson Show” last week, Cruz insisted that “the Democrats support illegal immigration,” which led him to praise Trump for his remarks describing immigrants as rapists.

“It’s one of the reasons why I’ve been so vocal in the past couple of weeks defending Donald Trump because you’ve had a whole slew of 2016 Republican candidates running out of their way to smack Donald Trump with a stick, and not only am I not going to do that but I’ve been singing his praises,” Cruz said, before adding: “He is absolutely right.”

Anti-Immigration Activist Who Threatened Violence Suddenly Denounces Threats Of Violence Over Immigration

A debate over immigration on the Fox News program "The Five" got pretty heated last night, with Geraldo Rivera at one point telling Eric Bolling that it is a good thing that they are friends or "I'd knock you out right now."

Radical right-wing anti-immigration activst William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC quickly fired off an action alert demanding that "Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on air ":

Geraldo Rivera is a pro-amnesty and pro-illegal immigration Hispanic supremacist. He is also a projection racist who stays busy calling other people "racist" while hoping to distract from his own racism.

Now he has really gone too far by threatening another Fox News employee with violence due to his opinions against illegal immigration.

Please watch the video ... Then contact Fox News to demand Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on the air!

...

"Geraldo Rivera has made a direct threat of physical violence on live television seen by millions and that is behavior that no company or news agency should tolerate!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "If Geraldo can threaten violence without consequences from his employer or termination of employment, then Fox News Corporation is sending a message across America that threats of violence from illegal immigrant supporters like Geraldo are acceptable, and that could put the company in a legally actionable position should others follow Geraldo's style of violent outbursts."

We find it a little ironic that Gheen, of all people, would be decrying threats of violence over the issue of immigration considering that, back in 2011, he warned that President Obama was planning on using undocumented immigrants to wage war on "White America" and so the only response left was to engage in "illegal and violent" "extra-political activities":

We’re no longer referring to him as President Barack Obama, our national organization has made the decision and made the announcement we now refer to him as Dictator Barack Obama. That’s what he is. And basically at this point, if you’re looking for a peaceful, political recourse there really isn’t one that we can think of, and I’m really not sure what to tell people out there than I guess they need to make decisions soon to just accept whatever comes next or some type of extra-political activities that I can’t really talk about because they’re all illegal and violent.

Donald Trump Grows More Toxic By the Day

Donald Trump began his campaign for the presidency with incendiary remarks about immigrants, and he has not let up. During his first speech as a candidate, Trump stated "when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best. …  They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists.” Despite the backlash to his comments, Trump has doubled down on his extremist views on immigration. In an interview with NBC, Trump said “there's nothing to apologize for” and added that any immigration policy less strict than his own would “let everybody come in… killers, criminals, drug dealers.”

Now, companies are responding by severing ties with Trump. Univision pulled out of its contract to broadcast Trump’s Miss USA pageant and NBC cut all ties with Trump, dropping not only the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, but also Trump’s role in Celebrity Apprentice. With this list continuing to grow, one organization is conspicuously missing: the Republican National Committee.

PFAW’s partners at the Latino Victory Project are calling on RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and the Republican Party to renounce Trump as a candidate for the Republican nomination for President. With the Republican Party claiming that they are committed to strengthening ties with the Latino and immigrant communities, surely it is time for the RNC to reject a candidate who makes such hateful and racist remarks.

Steve King: It's 'Mexicans Or Central Americans That Are Doing The Raping'

In an interview with The Hill newspaper today, Rep. Steve King defended Donald Trump’s comments calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug dealers, echoing Trump in claiming that the risk of sexual assault for women crossing the southern border translates into Mexican and Central American men being rapists.

"So yes, they’re being raped, they’re being murdered they’re being brutalized,” he told The Hill, “and when I know I’ve been challenged on that, 'well you can’t conclude that (it's) Mexicans or Central Americans that are doing the raping,' well, can you conclude anything else? They are being raped, they are victims of rape, and the price for the transit sometimes is, often is and predominantly is their body.”

Interestingly, while Republican presidential candidates have been scrambling to distance themselves from Trump, they continue to cater to King.

Louie Gohmert: ISIS Right Across The Border

In an interview yesterday with WorldNetDaily’s Radio America, Rep. Louie Gohmert once again pushed a debunked report alleging that ISIS set up a camp on America’s southern border, pointing to a Tom Clancy novel to claim that ISIS may be collaborating with drug cartels.

The Texas congressman said that Republicans shouldn’t have a problem picking up Latino voters since they love God and family, which of course are two things that Democrats hate.

However, Gohmert said that Republicans shouldn’t “disregard the rule of law” through immigration reform because such a move “makes us like the countries in Central America or Mexico that they’re fleeing.” A pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, Gohmert said, may jeopardize the future of the Republic.

Gohmert also took the opportunity to attack President Obama for not being American enough.

“It may just be because our president doesn’t know enough about our history, I’m sure they didn’t teach it in Indonesia, but the fact is when he says ‘nobody has done more to secure the border than I have,’ or words to that effect, is simply not true,” Gohmert said. The congressman pointed to Woodrow Wilson’s Mexican Expedition, which almost brought the two countries to the brink of war as U.S. troops entered Mexico, as proof that “the border was secure” under Wilson’s administration.

“This administration not only encourages people to violate the law, our immigration law, but it violates the laws regularly themselves,” purported lawbreaking which he said “leads to the tens of thousands of crimes that occur in the United States.”

Savage: Liberals To Use Immigrant Gangs And Internment Camps To Kill Christians And Veterans

Right-wing radio host Michael Savage joined other conservative pundits on Tuesday in blaming San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” policy for the murder of a woman by an undocumented immigrant, which he then used to warn of impending government violence against Christians and veterans.

He predicted that once President Obama incites a civil war by overloading the nation’s welfare system, liberals will employ “illegal alien gangs” as their “army.”

“It’s all well and good, the welfare state, until you can’t afford it anymore,” Savage said. “And guess what happens then? The country collapses. And guess what happens then? Exactly what the government wants, which is civil war and insurrection. And guess what happens then? There’s martial law and autocratic control. And guess what happens then? There are internment camps.”

He said that while the government will only “come for the returning war veterans” and “come for the Christians,” liberals will feel protected with the knowledge that they “have the army of the night behind you, and who is the army of the night? It’s the illegal alien gangs that you have behind you, it’s those who burned the city to the ground in Baltimore behind you, that’s who you have, those are your armies, you think we don’t know it? We understand your entire plan, we understand why you feel protected, we understand why you let a murder like this go unindicted, we understand all of this.”

Savage also railed against gays and lesbians, along with Democratic officials, linking them to murder.

“This is what liberalism brings you,” Savage said. “Insanity and murder and death and disease.”

Donald Trump Asks Extremist Joe Arpaio To Defend His Immigration Remarks

Donald Trump found an ally in Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio during his notorious birther crusade back in 2012, and now the Republican presidential candidate will be joining forces with Arpaio once again, this time to justify his infamous remarks that Mexican immigrants are mostly gangsters and rapists.

Trump plans to deliver a speech in Phoenix this week on “illegal immigration and numerous other topics.” Dan Nowicki of the Arizona Republic notes that Arpaio and a local GOP leader will both be making appearances at the event.

Surely teaming up with Arpaio will help Trump’s plan to win the Latino vote, as the sheriff has a horrific record on issues like immigration, racial profiling, detainmentand upholding basic human rights.

Most recently, he tapped a child sex offender to work as an armed guard for schools and confessed to having “violated several federal court orders resulting from a long-running racial-profiling suit.”

The sheriff, who has been cited by the Justice Department for violating the First Amendment rights of his critics, recently alleged that criticism of Trump’s comments on immigration undermines his “freedom of speech.”

Joe Arpaio: Criticizing Donald Trump Violates The First Amendment

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio defended his fellow anti-immigrant birther Donald Trump last week, saying that Trump didn’t mean “to say anything derogatory” about “all the great people from Mexico” when he said of Mexican immigrants, “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”

Arpaio told radio host Aaron Klein, in an interview later excerpted in WorldNetDaily, that criticism of Trump and his loss of corporate allies after he made the comments were violations of his “freedom of speech.”

“Well, first of all, I thought we had freedom of speech in this country, and he’s running for president, he has a right to voice his opinion,” Arpaio said. “He did talk about the birth certificate in the past, I’ve been working on that. So, I don’t know, I guess you’ve got to be politically correct when you run for office. But once again, I don’t believe he meant to say anything derogatory about all the people, all the great people from Mexico.”

Steve King Blames Drugs For Charleston Shooting, Says Undocumented Immigrants Have Killed More People Than 9/11

Steve Malzberg invited Rep. Steve King onto his Newsmax program on Friday to discuss issues ranging from the church shooting in Charleston, which King blamed on prescription medication, to undocumented immigrants, whom he said have killed “multiples of the victims of the September 11 attacks,” to Caitlyn Jenner, whom he said illustrates “how far this society has gone from rational thought.”

The Iowa Republican also had some thoughts on Hillary Clinton’s slam of Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric in his presidential announcement. King said that Clinton unfairly made the “presumption that perhaps there will be some white people that might discriminate against some not-so-white people on the basis of being inspired by Trump’s speech.”

He also attempted to criticize the former secretary of state for inconsistency: “It’s Hillary that says ‘I’m not going to channel my husband,’ but she would channel Donald Trumps announcement speech instead to try to gain a political advantage out of that.”

PFAW’s Drew Courtney Discusses Jeb Bush on ‘The Big Picture’

On Tuesday, PFAW Communications Director Drew Courtney joined Thom Hartmann on his program ‘The Big Picture’ to talk about Jeb Bush’s far-right agenda. Courtney critiqued Bush’s plans to privatize Social Security, his support of legislation that shamed women, and his stance on immigration.

Courtney challenged Bush’s label as a moderate, explaining his similarities to extreme conservatives like Scott Walker and Rick Santorum:

[Bush] has not just a record of rhetoric around these issues, pushing really ideologically extreme positions, but he has a record as governor showing what he’ll do when he’s in power, and I don’t think there’s any reason to assume he’ll be either more moderate or more responsible or more reasonable in the White House than he was in the Florida governor’s mansion.

Bush’s views on immigration fail to match the “kind things” he says about immigrants and their families, Courtney said. The presidential hopeful does not support a path to citizenship for the millions of undocumented immigrants residing in the country; a recently released Spanish-language ad from PFAW challenges his stance on this issue and on his opposition to raising the minimum wage. Courtney concluded by emphasizing how important it is for communities to realize the true intentions of all 2016 GOP candidates. He explained, “They are pushing radical policies that the Koch brothers love, and we need to make sure people understand that.”

Michael Savage: Use Immigrants To Build The Border Wall, Then Deported Them

Michael Savage is positively ecstatic about Donald Trump’s presidential bid, especially his line that he will “build a great, great wall on our southern border” and “will have Mexico pay for that wall,” an idea that Savage said he is “very honored to tell you that Mr. Donald Trump’s idea to build a wall with Mexico came directly from” his “Savage Manifesto.”

Savage, who has had Trump on his program, said yesterday that he would “use illegal aliens to build the wall” and then have them “repatriated” once the project is finished, all while having notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio oversee the project.

Later in the program, Savage demanded that Mexico pay the U.S. “reparations” and called on Trump to do away with the Constitution’s birthright citizenship provision.

Pat Buchanan Agrees Immigration Will Turn America Into 'A Third World Hellhole'

Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan is out with a column, “Is Third World America Inevitable?,” today hailing Ann Coulter’s new book, “Adios, America!,” warning that immigration reform “will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a ‘Third World hellhole.’”

Buchanan warns that ethnic diversity will fuel racial tensions, violence and terrorism, likening the purported dangers of immigration to Russian aggression in Eastern Europe and threats from North Korea.

He also laments that immigration will cripple the electoral prospects of the GOP, predicting that it will soon become “impossible” for a Republican presidential candidate to win a White House bid.

Thousands of U.S. troops safeguard the border of South Korea. U.S. warships patrol the South China Sea to stand witness to the territorial claims of Asian allies against China.

U.S. troops move in and out of the Baltic States to signal our willingness to defend the frontiers of these tiny NATO allies.

Yet nothing that happens on these borders imperils America so much as what is happening on our own bleeding border with Mexico.

Over three decades, that border has been a causeway into the USA for millions of illegal immigrants who are changing the face of America – to the delight of those who think the country we grew up in was ugly.

All sides of this quarrel have been using the figure of 11 million people here illegally. In her new best-seller “Adios, America!” Ann Coulter makes a compelling case that the real figure is close to 30 million.

If that is true, and if the next president embraces amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, that will mean the end to America as the Western nation we have been, and the beginning of America’s life as what Ann calls, unapologetically, a “Third World hellhole.”



Politically, immigrants from Third World countries, as they rely upon government for food, housing assistance, health care and the education of their children, support the Party of Government.

Mitt Romney lost the two fastest-growing major minorities, Hispanics and Asians, who now account for more than a fifth of our population and a seventh of our voters, by 40 points. And as their numbers and voting percentages rise, the GOP will find that reaching 270 electoral votes is not only more difficult than in Reagan’s day, it has become impossible.

Among the myths or lies drummed into the heads of Americans is that we have always been a “nation of immigrants,” and “diversity,” i.e., racial, ethnic and religious diversity, “is a strength.”



Has the addition of tens of millions of Asian and African Muslims strengthened the Old Continent that ruled the world? Or do they imperil its security and survival as the cradle and heartland of the West?

As racial, ethic [sic] and religious hatreds pull people apart and create terrorists all over our disintegrating world, why would we make ourselves ever more diverse?

Ann Coulter: Americans May 'Flee' To Canada To Avoid Latino Immigrants

Ann Coulter, author of “Adios, America!” and Gavin McInnes, host of “Free Speech” radio, advocated for strengthening the Canadian border as Americans might need to flee the country in the future due to immigration. McInnes joked that those fleeing America will be “the new draft dodgers.”

Providing listeners with her own version of history, Coulter warned that “crazy diversity” is taking over America due to our immigration policies, recommending that the government implement “a total moratorium” and eventually let in immigrants from countries like the Netherlands and the United Kingdom: “Shut down all of the pro-immigration, anti-American groups. Shut down the entire immigration bureaucracy. We’ll get our files in order, we’ll assimilate the ones already here, and then we’ll start it up again and get more Brits and Dutch.”

McInnes, a Canadian immigrant, responded, “When you say we’ll assimilate, the ones that you mean are the Canadian immigrant who came here in ’99. You wouldn’t want him to have to go back, right? If he brought a lot of jobs and he’s a safe guy.”

“Yeah, I think we’ll keep him,” reassured Coulter. “It’s crazy how hard it is for Canadians to immigrate!” She continued that “a lot of comedy writers and comedians are Canadians. I can’t believe what they have to go through!”

At first McInnes reasoned, “Why is there a border there? Let’s just knock that down.” However, he was easily persuaded by Coulter’s logic that “we’re gonna want to keep it there, because if this book doesn’t work, that’s where we’re all going to have to flee to.” Based on Ann’s calculations, “it’ll take Latin America another century to make it up to that border. So we want to keep that border very strong.”

At least “they don’t like the cold,” concluded McInnes.
