UPDATE: Here Is The Latest On Donald Trump’s Position On Illegal Immigrants
Illegal immigration, crimes against citizens by illegal immigrants, speaking out about it, getting labeled a racist... Enter Donald Trump.
Without rehashing and re-quoting his now infamous statement regarding the type of people Mexico exports to the US, we all know Trump has paid a steep price, via cancellations and terminations of business dealings, for his vocalizations. Interestingly, and tragically, no sooner did he speak his mind, than a young woman, Kathryn Steinle, was brutally murdered by a 5x illegal immigrant. Yet, the media still claims he is a racist and he is wrong.
Has it slowed him down? Has he recanted? Has he apologized? No, quite the contrary. Some call it doubling-down on his position, and others would say it was a clarification, the end result much like the first. He said these types of illegals are not limited to Mexico as a country of origin, “It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably from the Middle East” (July 6, 2015).
Actually, he said that the first time, “The United States has become a dumping ground for Mexico and, in fact, for many other parts of the world” (June 16, 2015). The problem is, the first time he said “Mexico.” The media went into an epileptic fit, fanning themselves, wiping the sweat from their brows, re-grouping, and launching their offensive to destroy the man.
His over-arching point was this, as he spoke to Fox News (July 6, 2015), “It’s about safety. Some of the people coming here are very violent people, not all.” In response to Marco Rubio’s jab at him, he asked Rubio what he would tell Steinle’s family because of our open-border policy, called him weak on the issue, and told him to “Stand up for US.” Among the GOP field, only one of the dozen plus candidates have refused to perform like a dancing circus monkey for the media and offer up a rebuke; Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas). The rest, who have chosen to play the game with the media and chastise or say Trump shouldn’t have said what he did (like Rick Santorum-Republican, Pennsylvania), would fall into the category of what The Donald would describe as weak dogs.
In a long explanatory follow-up statement issued on Monday, July 6, 2015, Trump included these points;
“They’re sending people that have lots of problem, and they’re bringing those problems to us.”
“They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, some are good people!”
So how is this working out for Trump, now? According to Rasmussen, 53% of potential voters agree with the man regarding the level of crime imported via our broken open border. Of Republicans, 76% agree with his statements regarding the importing of crime, as did 33% of Democrats. You read that right-Democrats!
In closing, consider his question, “What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists.”
