Explain exactly how you would go about deporting 11 million people

To The Daily Sun,

How do you move 11 million upward of 3,500 miles?
Donald Trump and many of the other republican candidates would have you believe that they would and could move massive numbers of human beings thousands of miles. So let's ask how and what happens when you get to the
border with 11 million people.

First, how? A deportation force has been suggested but like so many childish fantasies in this year's debates what would that look like and how much would it cost. Well, this would require a force of tens of thousands of new federal officers suitably trained, clothed, armored with transportation resources. How long would this take? And how much would it cost?

But wait, how do you determine who goes? So you need thousands of additional immigration agents working overtime to determine status. This takes training and time and money and office space. That's just the staff but how do you ensure that none of these are American citizens swept up in a dragnet? So you have to expand the notoriously clogged deportation court systems. More staff, more money, more time.

So jumping ahead. You have a trained deportation force, staff, courts etc. Now, how do you move people? In cattle cars like the Nazis? In tractor-trailers? Summer? Winter? How do you keep them from dying in route? Do you stop at night? Where? Do you feed them? Where are your mobile kitchens? Sleep facilities? Eating facilities?

Second, let's say you are arriving at the border with thousands and thousands of vehicles and tens of thousands of people, sort of like the Gulf War or D-Day. It is a massive logistics nightmare. You will be forced to build thousands of camps to house people. Summer? Winter? Food? Logistics? Nightmare?

And now what? You are at the border with millions of people. And what? Mexico has closed its borders. They refuse to repatriate 11 million Mexicans. Now what? Are we going to war? Whose side do you think these 11 million people will be on?

We need real leaders, not children with fantasies.

We need to come together as Americans & turn away this man

To The Daily Sun,
This country is in the middle of the process to elect a President of these United States. Mr. Trump has proven time and again that he is deficient of knowledge. He is a demagogue and delusional.
We need to come together and turn the tables on this man by shouting out loud as he does often at his rallies by saying: Get Out! GET OUT! GET HIM OUT!
