TRENTON — Pressed to explain Sunday how he plans to implement and pay for his sweeping plan to combat unauthorized immigration, Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump did not provide details but stressed that he will accomplish his goals through good “management.”

At the same time, Gov. Chris Christie — one of 16 Republican candidates trailing Trump in recent polls — criticized the billionaire businessman’s immigration platform, saying it’s “just too simplistic.”

Trump’s plan, unveiled last week, calls for rescinding President Obama’s executive orders on immigration, deporting millions of unauthorized immigrants, ending birthright citizenship, and building a wall across the U.S.-Mexico border.

But during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Trump was pressed by host George Stephanopoulos about how the U.S. would foot the bill for such a massive undertaking.

Stephanopoulos noted that right-leaning policy institute the American Action Forum estimated it would take between $100 billion and $300 billion and 20 years to arrest and remove the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in the country.
