President Goodie Grabber has a Magic Walrus delusion

Time: So deporting more than 11 million people in the two-year time frame that Trump has floated would take a big expansion of both money and manpower, according to the American Action Forum, a right-leaning Washington think tank that has analyzed Trump’s plans. Extrapolating from the ICE’s existing staffing levels — the department has about 5,000 workers devoted to apprehending undocumented immigrants — the think tank calculates that Trump’s goal would require boosting the ICE’s ranks to more than 90,000 — about three times the size of New York City’s police force.
The American Action Forum also looked other aspects of Trump’s plan. The group estimated it would take around 32,000 new immigration attorneys to process cases — up from about 1,300 today — plus hundreds of thousands of extra detention beds, 17,000 chartered airplane flights, 30,000 chartered bus trips each year.
The total cost would be $100 billion to $300 billion, the group estimates.
Chaos is the term to use.
