Kasich & Bush Jump On Trump: Deporting 11 Million Undocumented Not Practical

  • by: Alan Duke

John Kasich jumped on Donald Trump's proposal to deport all undocumented immigrants from the United States during Tuesday night's Fox Business News GOP debate.

"If people think that we are going to ship 11 million people who are law abiding, who are in this country, and somehow pick them up at their house and ship them off to Mexico, think about the families, think about the children," he said.

Trump, who repeated his argument that borders must be enforced of there is to be a nation of laws, jabbed back at Kasich saying "You're lucky in Ohio that you struck oil." Trump was inferring that Ohio -- where Kasich is the governor -- is enjoying a relative prosperity only because of the oil industry's fracking practices.

Jeb Bush also attacked Trump's deportation plan as impractical. "It would tear communities apart," Bush said. "They're doing high 5's right now in the Clinton campaign when they hear this... The way you win the presidency is have practical plans."

Trump insisted there was a historical precedent in the 1950s, when he said President Eisenhower rounded up and deported 1.5 million illegal immigrants.
