The topic of immigration turned into an all out brawl mostly between John Kasich and Donald Trump. Sadly it solidified the impression that the Republican Party is anti-immigrant party with gradations.
Maria Bartiromo mentioned that the Fifth District Court ruled against the Obama Administration on his immigration executive order. Donald Trump said he was elated that the ruling went as it did. He then went on to talk about building his wall on the border. He said the wall would work and if anyone doubted that it would, then they simply needed to refer to Israel’s wall.
Bartiromo asked about the economic impact of deporting eleven million undocumented immigrants. Donald Trump said it had to be done. He said we are a country of laws.
It was at this point that John Kasich forced himself into the discussion. He belittled the notion that the United States would deport eleven million undocumented workers. “For the eleven million people, come on folks we all know you can’t pick them up and ship them back across the border,” Kasich said. “It is a silly argument. It is not an adult argument. It makes no sense.”
Trump responded by insulting Kasich. He said Kasich was lucky that oil was struck in Ohio. He then went on a rant about Eisenhower deporting one point five million undocumented workers across the border. Kasich shot back at Trump implying he was not telling the truth about Kasich’s record. Trump in classic Trump fashion dismissed Kasich. “I built an unbelievable company worth billions and billions of dollars,” Donald Trump said. “I don’t have to hear from this man.”
Bush then chimed in stating that Hillary Clinton’s team is likely doing high fives watching the debate. He then said there must be a path for legalization for the undocumented immigrants.
