We'll first send back all illegal aliens who are criminals says Boris Ephsteyn, for Trump

This is in response to the question (which they dodge) about Deportation Squads.

The question that no one is asking Ephsteyn, or any of the other hired goons, is HOW they propose to round up those "illegal aliens who are criminals" ? Surely that implies Deportation squads ??? They're hardly going to hand themselves in, seeing as they would never be able to return to the US if caught.

because, by definition, all "illegal immigrants" are criminals.

So... while it might sound softer... do not be deceived. If tRump is elected, he can still start rounding up all people here WITHOUT documentation and deport them... and, if his previous promises are true, he will do it "humanely" by deporting any children born here as well (no splitting up families!).

that undocumented people are in violation of civil laws.

I am not sure the Trump campaign (en masse) understands the difference.

It's a big difference. It goes right to the bigger point I believe you're making: they really think they can just round people up.

more than his surrogates -- it about more than just saying they get away with it.

It's important to keep pointing this crap out.

Deportation is a civil penalty. This is why there is no sixth amendment right to counsel in deportation courts.
