Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley gave Donald Trump the treatment he deserved when the topic turned to immigration reform during this Saturday's Democratic Debate on CBS.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley slammed Donald Trump as a “carnival barker” Saturdat at the second Democratic presidential debate as he bashed the GOP front-runner candidate’s immigration rhetoric.

“The fact of the matter is, let's say it in our debate because you’ll never hear this from that immigrant-bashing carnival-barker Donald Trump, the truth of the matter is, net immigration from Mexico last year was zero,” O’Malley said.

“If we want wages to go up, we have to get 11 million of our neighbors out of the off-the-books shadow economy and into the full light of the American economy.” [...]

“If more and more deportations were going to bring our Republican brothers and sisters to the table, it would have happened a long time ago,” he said.
