Trump’s Mass Deportation Machine Would Create an American Police State Equal to Nazi Germany

No matter how likely or unlikely his plan is to occur, it is simply evil and monstrous. This kind of seems like a big deal to me. Anyone who supports Trump is supporting monstrous evil.


Trump’s plan portends great civil strife, economic devastation and the imposition of a police state.
Donald Trump’s pledge yesterday to speedily deport “anyone who has entered the United States illegally” would require the creation of a vast police state that harkens back to the early 20th century, with Nazi Germany’s roundups and deportations of millions of Jews and others deemed undesirable. 
“Under my administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came,” Trump blared. “And you can call it deported if you want. The press doesn't like that term. You can call it whatever the hell you want. They're gone.” 
Trump’s plan starts with the immediate roundup and expulsion of “illegal immigrants who are arrested for any crime whatsoever,” but goes far beyond the notion that local police might stop a car whose rear headlight is out, demand visas and green cards, and in their absence throw that person into an American gulag that ends in a foreign airport. 
Trump has said that “62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants” receive some welfare or food stamps, a “tremendous cost to our country” and “will be priorities for immediate removal.” That would not create not just a climate of great fear, but in tandem with his pledge to push for a new national law withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities, it echoes 1930s Germany's deliberate stripping of civil rights. 
Until Trump’s Arizona speech Wednesday, he had signaled that he still wanted to deport 11 million undocumented migrants—and also ensnare their estimated 5 million children born here and revoke their citizenship—but offered no details beyond saying he would find a “humane and efficient” way to do it. On Wednesday, he offered some numbers to indicate the size of the expanded federal police force needed, saying he would “triple the number of ICE deportation officers” and “hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents.” 
But a series of 2016 reports from a right-wing think tank, American Action Forum, which looked at the logistics behind Trump’s pledge to deport migrants in a two-year period reveals a far larger state police force and deportation machinery would be required. The closest historic analogy is not the arrest and deportation of 1.3 million Mexicans in the 1950s derisively known as “Operation Wetback,” nor the round up and internment of 110,000 Japanese-Americans in WWII, nor the arrest of thousands of accused Communists in the Palmer Raids after WW1. It is Nazi Germany, where the Gestapo, or the state police—along with the legal system and the courts, a transportation infrastructure, and transit and concentration camps—were used to arrest and deport millions of Jews and other undesirables. 
“We examined what it would take to execute Donald Trump’s promise to remove all undocumented immigrants in just two years,” American Action Forum reported. “We detailed current immigration enforcement operations and estimated exactly how large each component of the enforcement process would have to be in order to accomplish this task.” “We found that to remove all undocumented immigrants in two years, the federal government would need to increase federal immigration apprehension workers from 4,844 to 90,582, immigration detention personnel from 5,203 to 53,381, federal immigration attorneys from 1,430 to 32,445, and immigration courts from 58 to 1,316,” its 2016 analysis continued. “In addition, the number of immigration detention beds would need to increase from 34,000 to 348,831 and to physically transport all undocumented immigrants out of the country the government would need to charter a minimum of 17,296 flights and 30,701 bus trips each year.” 
In other words, Trump’s Arizona speech was not just the usual ranting and raving Americans have come to expect from a man whose words cannot be trusted—such as playing nice while standing at the podium with Mexico’s president, and hours later vilifying migrants in his speech promising a new federal police state and gulag. His purportedly substantive speech detailing how he would do it was devoid of the real size and scope of the state police and deportation industry needed.

You could make similar illogical claims about all kinds of things -- e.g. Bill & the Bushes tried to exterminate the Muslim populations in many countries". "Hillary's war mongering is a threat to world population". "Obama's reckless, often frivolous wasting of taxpayer's money on multi-million dollar travel excursions is bankrupting the nation."

We live in a democratic republic and Trump is responding to the public's demands to enforce our immigration laws.

His children's behavior is a direct reflection of the high standards of conduct their parents instilled them. If only more Americans were similarly invested with such high standards and good-citizen values.

Your analysis and reasoning are woefully flawed.

Oh bullshit on every level. And his kids are assholes.

His kids went on a safari and killed an elephant and a leopard. That's not high standards to me.

If we take Trump at his words here, he is proposing a monstrous horrible act. Nazi-like expulsion, which is bound to affect innocent people. This article doesn't even mention his insane promise to expel 2 million people in his first hour as president.

Usually president/politicians try to downplay their actions. These are the proposal of a dictator.

ALSO
Trump is a conman, a joke, a fundamentally bad person who should not be in a position of leadership.

He is unleashing truly dark and hateful forces in this election. Fuck anyone who supports him in any way.

If you can't figure out if Trump is good or bad look at who is attacking him.

Clinton is the Wall St warmonger globalist.

Not good logic.

As bad as Clinton may be (and I don't think she's as bad as many make out, she's a mainstream US politician), Trump is FAR WORSE.

He's ignorant, a racist, and has a lousy temperament. There's NO good reason to think he'd make a good president, unless you are looking for the president to become a fascistic dictator or to destroy the planet.

That's want the corporate news media want us to believe.

The Republican Neocons want Clinton.

She destroyed the entire country of Lybia (which had the highest standard of living in Africa under Gaddafi)

She wants war in Syria

She protects the Federal Reserve

She protects the GMO food industry

Spook, you are are coming dangerously close to Anonymous Physicist terriory.
