Top Trump Surrogate Admits That We Will Get Virtual Wall and Virtual Deportations

Trump’s Supreme Court list is hardly the only patently fake promise he has made. Prominent among the others are the Great Wall along the Mexican border and the ejection of illegal aliens. Already we learn that Trump was referring to a virtual wall and virtual deportations:

Rep. Chris Collins was the first member of Congress to endorse Donald Trump. Since then he’s become, rather obviously, quite important to the campaign, and is one of their key surrogates in the media. In an interview with the The Buffalo News [Wednesday], Trump critical ally, first endorser, and top media surrogate told the media outlet that Trump’s big sell items, the “big, beautiful wall” and his “kick them out” policy are just a big show.

“I have called it a virtual wall,” Collins told the paper. “Maybe we will be building a wall over some aspects of it; I don’t know.”

A virtual wall. That is not what the Donald promised. You know what else he didn’t promise? Fake deportations.

But that’s what the suckers who fell for his pitch will get:

“I call it a rhetorical deportation of 12 million people,” Collins said.

He then gestured toward a door in his Capitol Hill office.

“They go out that door, they go in that room, they get their work papers, Social Security number, then they come in that door, and they’ve got legal work status but are not citizens of the United States,” Collins said. “So there was a virtual deportation as they left that door for processing and came in this door.”

Collins added: “We’re not going to put them on a bus, and we’re not going to drive them across the border.”

That’s because Trump’s touchback amnesty scheme would be a silly charade. Why waste the expense and effort of making millions of illegals go touch ground in another country before getting their amnesty?

Touchback amnesty will quickly be shortened to amnesty. Once Trump is in power, what are the people who put him there going to do about it? He will be free to revert to his lifelong liberal ways. Remember, this is the guy who proclaimed that Mitt Romney lost in 2012 because Mitt’s call for self-deportation proved that he was “mean-spirited” toward illegal immigrants.

Trump has already hedged on or abandoned virtually every promise that got him where he is. Only where his promises are in line with his own inclinations will he keep his word. That means he is likely to impose economically ruinous tariffs and use the government to silence political dissent, just like he has said he would. It is already obvious that the rest will go straight out the window.

Technically it is not too late to put a genuine Republican on the ballot. But as the great Mark Twain observed,
