Via Diamond and Silk twitter, 11/12/15. (Michael Cohen is a Trump executive.)
From Mark Steyn: "The debate? Well, I thought the most interesting moment came when Donald Trump brought up Eisenhower:
"Let me just tell you that Dwight Eisenhower—a good president, great president, people liked him. 'I Like Ike', right? The expression 'I Like Ike'? - moved a million and a half illegal immigrants out of this country, moved them just beyond the border: They came back. Moved them again, beyond the border: They came back. Then moved them way south. They never came back."
To the establishments of both parties and the media, Trump is beyond the pale. Yet he keeps, confidently, moving beyonder....
It is striking that, even in a conservative debate, mass, remorseless, illegal immigration is discussed almost entirely from the illegals' point of view: as Kasich advises, think of the families, think of the children. Their families, their children. The families of those they've supplanted are of less consequence. The argument made by Bush and Kasich against enforcing the immigration laws is an appeal to moral preening: this is "not who we are". But using mass immigration to destroy the lives of your own citizens? That's exactly who we are."
