    Jeff Sessions Says Donald Trump Is Mulling Making Undocumented Immigrants ‘Self-Depor

    Jeff Sessions Says Donald Trump Is Mulling Making Undocumented Immigrants ‘Self-Deport’

    Self-deportation is back!

    Top Donald Trump surrogate Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said on Wednesday that the Republican presidential nominee is considering a plan that would require undocumented immigrants to “self-deport” before they could get legal status to return to the U.S.

    The comment was revealing not because the policy was different than what Trump has discussed previously ― it wasn’t ― but because he was willing to use the term “self-deport,” once considered radioactive among leading Republicans after 2012 nominee Mitt Romney famously discussed it. In 2012, even Trump called it “crazy” and “maniacal” and said it cost the Republican party votes.

    Of course, things have changed over the past four years, and self-deportation is back.

    “You basically would have [to] self-deport if you want to get a legal status in the United States,” Sessions said on CNN’s “New Day,” the day after the vice presidential debate.

    Sessions said he was “not sure how firm [Trump] is on the details,” but that he was thinking about a policy in which undocumented immigrants would have to go back to their native countries and apply to come to the U.S., a proposal the senator noted has been put forward by politicians previously.

    “He has discussed that and will wrestle with it,” Sessions said. “But what he said he’s absolutely going to do is end the future flow, end the lawlessness and put this country on the right path.”

    Trump has spoken frequently about immigration since the beginning of his campaign, but often with vague language and pronouncements that he allowed people to interpret as they wished. This was especially true on enforcement ― Trump promised a “deportation force” last year and said all undocumented immigrants would have to leave.

    Democrats jumped on the “deportation force” comments. Democratic vice presidential nominee and Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine referenced them during Tuesday’s debate, saying Trump wanted to send agents house to house and school to school.

    Republican vice presidential nominee and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence called that “nonsense,” although he acknowledged Trump had used the words “deportation force,” which he said meant the existing Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Sessions gave a similar explanation for the “deportation force,” something Trump aides have said as well.

    “Well, he certainly said that,” Sessions said of Trump on CNN. “But he didn’t say that they’re going to go out house to house and round people up.”

    Trump says he would deport certain undocumented immigrants and encourage the rest to leave on their own. That’s “self-deportation” in principle, whether or not candidates and their supporters use the term.

    Take the way Romney described it in 2012. He said he would not “round people up,” but they would instead be encouraged to leave the country and apply for legal residency to return to the United States.

    “The answer is self-deportation, which is people decide they can do better by going home because they can’t find work here because they don’t have legal documentation to allow them to work here,” Romney said during a Republican primary debate. “And so we’re not going to round people up.”

    Trump insisted last year that his plan was different, in response to a question about his 2012 comments on Romney’s “self-deportation” remark.

    “It’s mean-spirited,” he said at the time on Fox News. “This doesn’t work at all ... this would never have worked. Look, I want people to go out and they have to come in through the legal process.”

    Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.

    LOL!! CNN .... they just can't tell the truth or even let the truth prevail on its own.

    Self-deportation is existing law. If you self-deport before you're arrested and deported, then you legally preserve your right to apply to enter the US legally at some future point in time. Self-deportation is not something a government does, it's what the individual does. It's no different than fleeing a crime scene before getting caught. Under US law, until you're caught and prosecuted, you're innocent until proven guilty and have all your rights intact. That doesn't mean you'll be allowed back in the US because the US has no legal obligation to let anyone from anywhere into the United States.

    Yes, many will self deport (yipee yio) and they should expect that if a real American becomes potus. Our laws have been broken to procure illicit votes.

    The "editor" had to add this..

    Who CARES @ your opinion editor? Could you, bill maher and the like, possibly keep it to yourself as your opinion DOES NOT MATTER TO THINKING INDIVIDUALS. Don't take that upon yourself unwarranted.

    artist, Huffington Post has printed that about Trump in every article about him since the Primary election over a year ago. It's amazing they can get away with something like that. But they have.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Self-deportation

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Self-deportation is an approach to dealing with illegal migrants in the United States that involves the creation of legal structures which will make life in the US so difficult as to encourage illegal migrants tovoluntarily return to their home countries, rather than organized efforts of law enforcement to locate and deport them. The 2012 Republican Party platform included self-deporation as a response to illegal immigration to the United States. The platform also calls for robust border enforcement, opposition to “any forms of amnesty,” enforcement of the use of E-Verify by employers for employment eligibility verification, and other “humane procedures to encourage migrants to return home voluntarily.”[1]

    History[edit]


    This term was used as early as 1984 in a People article about the film director Roman Polanski, which referred to his self-deporting.[2] The term gained its current association with illegal immigration in the 1990s, especially in California.

    In 1994, William Safire described its usage by California governor Pete Wilson's immigration strategy, exemplified by Proposition 187, which prevented illegal aliens from using a variety of state social services. Safire summarized the philosophy of the approach as holding that "the most cost-effective way to change behavior is to make life unbearable under present behavior."[3][4]

    The same year, Lalo Alcaraz and Esteban Zul launched a satirical campaign involving a character named "Daniel D. Portado" (a pun on deportado, Spanish for deported), who facetiously promoted self-deportation.[4][5]


    The concept was popularized by Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies and was endorsed in 2016 by Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Chris Christie.[6]

    It's called enforcing US immigration law.

    Voluntary repatriation
    refers to voluntary return of refugee to the country of origin. It is one of the three durable solutions traditionally identified for refugees.

    Voluntary repatriation is the preferred long-term solution for the majority of refugees in the world.
