In one of the unaired segments of Donald Trump's recent 60 Minutes interview he was asked how he would deport all the illegals who are here. To my surprise Trump actually invoked the name of Eisenhower and referenced Operation Wetback (although not by name).

I'm beginning to think this man might be serious!

Trump compared his deportation plan to one introduced by President Dwight Eisenhower in the 1950s. Trump says Eisenhower deported over a million people, though some research suggests the number may be lower. [VDARE.com note: I. E. much of the success was due to "self-deportation."]
