"There's no path to legalization unless they leave the country," Trump said after an event in Manchester, New Hampshire. "When they come back in, then they can start paying taxes, but there is no path to legalization unless they leave the country and then come back."Whether Trump wins or loses, moving forward requires exit. Exit is the final red pill, the shedding of the last political bonds. The voting booth is where your money and power go to die. Adherence to the "America" of your dreams is the last pedestalization. Creating new political, economic and cultural bonds lays the foundation for the future. When America falls, whatever ideology and economic policies are tied to it will burn in the fire.
Trump said that on his first day in office, he would authorize law enforcement to actively deport "bad dudes," such as those who have committed crimes, which he said numbered "probably millions." But he declined to flatly say whether he would round up other undocumented immigrants, stressing that once the initial deportations occur, "then we can talk."
"There is a very good chance the answer could be yes," Trump said when asked if he would deport those who have lived here peacefully but without papers. "We're going to see what happens."
