When it comes down to it, do you like Hillary or Donald’s immigration plan? Give us your thoughts below.
Donald J. Trump, the billionaire real estate magnate and presumptive 2016 GOP presidential nominee, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that his likely Democratic opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, wants to increase illegal immigration into America.
Trump, who made the comments in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News in his office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower here in Midtown, Manhattan, said Clinton’s plan would be a “disaster” for the United States. Trump said:
I think it’s a disaster for our country. She wants to allow people in, she wants to have a very weak border, she wants illegal immigrants to flow into the country with all of the problems—to flow into the country—and she wants to allow the Syrians to come in in numbers far greater than even Obama. We have no idea who these people are. They’re not documented. Nobody knows anything about them. I think it’s catastrophic for the country if that’s allowed to happen.
Trump told Breitbart News that the difference between his plan and Clinton’s plan is that he will actually secure America whereas Clinton will leave the border wide open.
“We’re going to have very strong borders, and people can come into the country, but they have to come in legally. They have to come in legally. And the Syrians, we won’t take them, because we don’t know who they are and where they’re from. They could be ISIS. So we won’t take them.”
And when asked if, now that he is the GOP nominee, he plans to stick with his plans for a wall on the border paid for by Mexico—Clinton opposes the construction of a border-securing wall—Trump said he does.
“Absolutely, we’re going to have a wall—and Mexico is going to pay for the wall,” Trump said.
