Trump Says His Deportation Plan Will Only Take ’18 Months To 2 Years If Properly Handled’

September 12, 2015 4:51 p.m.

Celebrity tycoon and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told members of the Alabama Republican party on a Thursday night conference call that his plan to remove undocumented immigrants from the U.S. would only take “18 months to two years if handled properly,” CBS News reported Friday.

“I think it’s a process that can take 18 months to two years if properly handled,” Trump said on Thursday, according to CBS.

And the wall along the southern border that Trump plans to build? He said he won’t build it “until all the undocumented immigrants are out,” according to the report.

“I will get them out so fast that your head would spin, long before I even can start the wall,” Trump said. “They will be out of here. You know we have tremendous problems of crime.”
