Donald Trump, “To Become a Citizen, You Have to Go Out & Come Back”
Monday, Donald Trump said there is a possibility that some undocumented immigrants could remain in the United States if he’s elected as US President, even if they do not want to become citizens.
“It could be, but what’s going to happen is if you’re going to be a citizen, you’re going to leave and you’re going to have to come back,” Donald Trump said in a TV interview.
Undocumented immigrants who do not wish to become citizens, though, will “have to make a determination what happens when the border is secure,” said Mr. Trump. “I am going to make a decision, or somebody will. Whether it’s me or somebody else because by that time we’ll have a secure border, we will have a wall.”
He said that it is a “very difficult thing to do” when it comes to deporting parents whose children are citizens of the United States.
In his speech on immigration last week, Donald Trump insisted that there will be No Amnesty, and that he will send a message to the world that “you cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country. Under my administration anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country and back to the country from which they came.”
Also Monday, Donald Trump told reporters aboard his plane that he is not “ruling anything out,” then rejected a path to legal status.
“No. To become a citizen you’re going to have to go out and come back. Through the process you’re going to have to get on line. This isn’t touch back,” he said.
