Donald Trump, “We are going to send them back where they came from”
Saturday, Donald Trump told Americans that he is not retreating on illegal immigration by declaring in Iowa that “on Day 1, I’m going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this country.
“We are going to send them back to where they came from,” the GOP Presidential nominee said at Senator Joni Ernst’s annual “Roast and Ride” event in Des Moines.
“On this path, we will always err on the side of protecting American people.
“We will use immigration laws to prevent crimes — and we will not wait until some innocent American has been harmed or killed before taking action.
“We will move justly, but we will move fast, believe me, and we will move tough,” Trump said.
Donald Trumps remarks came at the end of a week during which he was attacked by both conservatives and liberals who said he had softened his stance on immigration.
Thursday in a national TV interview he rebuked the criticism, saying in fact he is— “hardening” his position and that “there’s no path to legalization unless people leave the country.”
He also reiterated his vow to build a wall on the US border with Mexico.
In going after criminal illegals, the Donald Trump said that those included aliens who have been released into communities around the country under “the incompetent Obama-Clinton administration.”
“These international gangs of thugs and drug cartels will be, and I promise you we are going to get rid of these people, Day 1, before the wall, before anything,” he said.
“You go to some places and you will see that the reign of terror will be over, it will be over fast.”
He added that a Trump Administration will “institute nationwide e-Verify” to “stop illegal immigrants from accessing welfare and entitlements and develop an exit system to ensure that anyone who overstays their visas are quickly removed.”
Donald Trump also pledged to cancel President Barack Hussein Obama’s executive actions on immigration and slammed Democrat Hillary Clinton for supporting the President’s policies.
“Most alarmingly, she has pledged to keep President Obama’s executive amnesty, which has been blocked by the Supreme Court,” Mr. Trump said. “Beyond that, she’s pledged to add another executive amnesty in violation of both congressional law and the United States Constitution.
“These actions from Hillary Clinton will trigger a crisis greater than almost anything we have seen,” he added.
Friday, Donald Trump said that the upcoming release of hacked e-Mails by WikiLeaks “sounds like it’s going to be very, very earth-shattering” for Hillary Clinton and that he would “seriously” consider keeping the email investigation open if he won in November.
“I have no idea,” what WikiLeaks plans to release, but I can imagine that it would be very bad.”
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a virtual tie, according to the USC Dornsife/LA Times tracking poll.
