Republican candidate Donald Trump has spoken out lately with regards to his immigration proposal. His latest plan to build a wall bordering the U.S. and Mexico is under scrutiny. “We’re going to build the wall. It’s going to be a real deal. It’s going to be a real wall,” He said in an interview with Mika Brzezinksi of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.
The wall would be 2,000 feet long and would be paid for by the Mexicans, according to Trump. It would serve as a reinforced version of the preexisting border, and would only allow documented immigrants into the country.  Trump is also campaigning for the deportment of 11 million undocumented immigrants, which he explains to be a step in the right direction regarding problems with immigration in the United States.
The wall will be accompanied by a large deportation force, one that would be “done humanely”, according to Trump. In August, he called for the addition of nearly triple the number of immigration and customs enforcement agents, according to CNN. Trump has also hinted at the notion of ending birthright citizenship, which would undoubtedly face opposition due to its inclusion in the fourteenth amendment of the Constitution. Trump promised, “We’re gonna let people in, but they’re going to come in legally.”
Despite his fervent plans, he has continued to clash with his opponents, both Republicans and Democrats. Republican candidate, John Kasich, questioned Trump about his deportation plan at the latest Republican debate. ”We all know you can’t pick them up and ship them across, back across the border. It’s a silly argument,” said Kasich. Hillary Clinton, a leading candidate for the Democratic ticket, decided to broadcast her opposition via Twitter. “The idea of tracking down and deporting 11 million people is absurd, inhumane, and un-American. No, Trump. – H,” she tweeted. It is noted that tweets signed with an “H” are posted by Hillary herself, according to CNN.
