'I don't like this deportation thing at all'

Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) claimed on CBS News' "Face The Nation" over the weekend that deporting illegal immigrants is "not appropriate," even for those who do not follow the asylum process.

"There are ICE raids set to start Sunday morning. Estimates of some 2000 people or so who will be targeted, is this appropriate?" host Margaret Brennan asked.
"No, it's not. It is absolutely not appropriate," Sanders replied.
"But specifically on this point the 2,000 that are supposed to be targeted haven't shown up for a court date so essentially they're not following the asylum process, the legal standards when they're here," Brennan followed up. "So should they be prosecuted, should they be deported?"
"I don't like this deportation thing at all and I think Trump uses this as a beginning to do worse things to come," Sanders said.
