Response to Eliot Rosewater (Original post)

10. A monumentally politically stupid idea, as well as a racist one

A monumentally politically stupid idea, as well as a racist one. And one that Trump might be stupid enough to sign off on.

At least three of these states have very large Latino populations. Not "illegals" as right-wing ideologues might fondly imagine, but US citizens. New Mexico and Colorado went from red to purple because of them. Luckily for the GOP, Texas remained red because Texas Latinos don't vote and up to very recently, Latino-baiting had temporarily gone out of fashion thanks to Dubya and Rick Perry. Mass deportations--And US citizens WILL be caught up in there deportations--ought to be more than enough to infuriate previously-apathetic Latino voters and motivate them to vote.

Some Trump-loving idiot ought to ditch his or her copy of the Turner Diaries if he or she wants to see his boss keep his job.

Today we're a laughing-stock; tomorrow, we'll be a pariah state.

Edit: If this proposal goes through, the Republican Party will be branded as the party of heartless Ayn Rand fans and racist bigots for generations.
