    Surging Ben Carson Knocks Trump Immigration Plan

    Sept. 8, 2015
    by Andrew Rafferty and Alex Stambaugh

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson knocked rival Donald Trump's immigration plan on Tuesday, saying that deporting the country's undocumented immigrants "sounds really cool" but would be far too costly and complicated.

    "It sounds really cool, you know, 'Let's just round them all up and send them back,'" Carson said. "People who say that have no idea what that would entail in terms of our legal system, the costs - forget about it. Plus, where you gonna send them? It's just a double whammy."

    Carson has been gaining on Trump, the GOP frontrunner, in recent polls. An NBC/Marist poll released Sunday found Carson has jumped to second place in Iowa among Republican voters, seven points behind the real estate mogul.

    Trump's immigration plan calls for deporting the estimated 11 million undocumented workers currently in the U.S., a proposal that opponents say would cost billions and would be nearly impossible to execute. Carson said that he instead favors a plan that would allow undocumented workers the chance to become guest workers.

    The outspoken leader of the GOP field has so far refrained from knocking Carson, though that could soon change if the former neurosurgeon continues his steady rise in the polls.

    "I'm hoping for Ben to really hit me at some point because I love to counter-punch," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" last week.

    During Carson's discussion at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco on Tuesday, he also said he believes God is "opening doors" for his campaign.

    "I just said, Lord, you know it's not something that I particularly wish to do," Carson said of a 2016 run. "But if you really want me to do it, you'll have to open the doors because all the pundits and all the experts say it's impossible for someone like me to put together a national organization to be able to raise adequate funds, to do all the things that are necessary."

    "I have no great ambition quite frankly to do this, but I feel called to do it by a lot of my fellow Americans and the doors are opening," he added.

    So here we have another RINO claiming to be a conservative and the gullible Christians and uninformed, supposed conservatives are falling all over themselves because he is such a nice guy. Best of all, they get to prove how not racist they are by supporting the Black guy. If the GOP nominates this guy then the conservative movement will die and end the last chance America has to turn itself around.

    Amnesty is national suicide--period. Any politician who promotes any form of legal status is supporting amnesty. They all will be given citizenship they have done nothing to deserve. It is not if but simply when they all become citizens.

    Amnesty will destroy this country. No one can be a conservative and support any form of legal status for the foreigner squatters who are here. It is critical that they all go home.

    Save American don't let Carson within 100 miles of the White House. Sober up you people who think Carson is a good choice for president.

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

    I don't think any of this is coming from Donald Trump, it's the media posing questions.
