Trump: Those Who Came To America Legally Are The Backbone Of The Nation

I’m still not a supporter of Donald Trump, and he still hasn’t rescinded his plan for a so-called “touchback” amnesty plan, namely, where illegals would have to briefly leave the USA before coming back for immediate legalization. The first part would probably not happen, the second part would. But, this is a fantastic answer to an illegal alien supporter

(The Hill) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday drew a stark distinction between legal and illegal immigrants, saying it was legal immigrants who made America great.

Trump responded after a questioner at an Exeter, N.H., rally said illegal immigrants are the “backbone” of America.

“Oh, illegal immigrants are the backbone of our country? I don’t think so, darling,” Trump replied. “I don’t think so. I don’t think so. No, I don’t think so. They’re not the backbone.

“Let me just tell you something. Let me just tell you something,” he added. “You know what the backbone of our country [is]? People that came here, and they came here legally — people that came here to this country legally, and they worked their ass off, and they made this country great.”

Trump went on to claim that the woman might be a plant from the Sanders campaign, per the article (and many others) and, a little context is needed. A woman claimed she was from Southern California, and knew lots of people who came to the US illegally. She was questioning Trump’s hardline approach to illegals. She’s the one he accused of being a Sanders plant, and asked if she was a liberal Democrat. It was a second woman, one Lucy Weller, who then said illegal were the backbone of the country. Watch

    “…I don’t think so, darling,” Trump replied.

    Imagine if Senator Sanders had made such a condescending and insulting statement to a woman… The media would go apeshit.

    Who will do the landscaping at your condo if they all leave?
    You do know that the number of undocumented in the USA has gone down by about 1/2 million under Obama
    While under Bush it went up 3 million

    sales to people without documents ?

  3. No, John, they’re all here legally. The company uses everify.

    No, they can’t purchase. It’s against NC law. Furthermore, no bank will give them a loan. They also do not extend loans to people with valid visas past their visa time.

    Are you advocating for illegals aliens to do jobs and get paid ultra low wages, John? How about they come legally? It’s not that big of a concept
