In his highly anticipated speech in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, Trump embraced a hardline conservative position saying he was in Mexico to discuss about a border wall and also reiterated that Mexico will pay for the wall. Trump also said “there will be no amnesty,” for undocumented immigrants.
There are about 11 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S and Trump in his speech last night suggested that undocumented immigrants who are caught will be deported — with no exceptions but didn’t say if all 11 million immigrants will be deported.
“For those here illegally today who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and one route only. To return home and apply for re-entry like everybody else under the rules of the new legal immigration system that I have outlined today, They’re great people, and great leaders,” he said of Mexicans during his Phoenix speech, “but they’re going to pay for the wall.
Mexico will pay for the wall. 100%. They don’t know it yet, but they’re going to pay for the wall. It’s our right as a sovereign nation to choose immigrants that we think are the likeliest to thrive and flourish and love us.”
He also proposed forming an American immigration task force and said with his policies American lives and jobs will be safer.
“If we can save American lives, American jobs and American futures, together we can save America itself.”
His Poll numbers increased after last night’s speech meaning some Americans mainly whites see sense in his policies.
