Donald Trump Calls For 'Deportation Force' To Deport Undocumented Immigrants

Donald Trump promised that, as president, he would assemble a "deportation force" to remove 11 million undocumented immigrants from the U.S.

On a Nov. 11 interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe," co-host Mika Brzezinski asked the Republican presidential hopeful if he would have a "massive deportation force," reports CNN.

"You're going to have a deportation force, and you're going to do it humanely," Trump answered, according to CNN. "Don't forget, Mika, that you have millions of people that are waiting in line to come into this country and they're waiting to come in legally. And I always say the wall, we're going to build the wall. It's going to be a real deal. It's going to be a real wall."

In his August immigration proposal, Trump called to triple the number of agents who enforce customs and immigration. He has also discussed his intent to end birthright citizenship, a right guaranteed in the fourteenth amendment of the Constitution.

During the fourth Republican debate on Nov. 10, candidates John Kasich and Jeb Bush attacked the billionaire businessman for for his immigration policies. 

"We all know you can't pick them up and ship them across, back across the border," Kasich told Trump during the debate. "It's a silly argument. It is not an adult argument. It makes no sense."

The moderators tried to steer the conversation in a different direction, but Trump fired back.

"I built an unbelievable company worth billions and billions of dollars," Trump said. "I don't have to hear from this man, believe me. I don't have to hear from him."

The deportations Trump has in mind would cost an average of $10,070 per person, for a total of nearly $111 billion to remove 11 million people, according to Newsweek.

The estimate includes the cost to detain the individuals and process them through the immigration courts in addition to transporting them out of the country.

Two thirds of undocumented immigrants have been living in America for more than a decade.
