Donald Trump is committed to deport all the undocumented immigrants and revoke President Barack Obama’s executive orders which currently provide protection from deportations to the children of the parents who are in the United States without documentations. Donald Trump told the NBC’s “Meet the Press” host that undocumented immigrants must go. Trump had earlier called the Mexican immigrants as criminals and rapists while launching his campaign for the presidential candidacy nomination. There are estimated over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country who are waiting for Congress to act on immigration in terms of their status. It is very unlikely that any immigration legislation would be passed before the end of the President Obama’s tenure in White House.
Donal Trump had reiterated his stance about undocumented immigrants in United States while talking to Chuck Todd of NBC. Trump said, “They [undocumented immigrants]have to go.”
When asked if the undocumented immigrants have nowhere to go then what. Trump said, “We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don’t have a country.”
“We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,” add Trump.
Trump also said that he will revoke Obama’s presidential executive orders which shield children of parents who are staying in the country without any proper authorization or documentations. He further added that there is a need to write a whole new set of standards for those who want to immigrate to the United States.
Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants have received criticism from within his party but he is leading many polls after those comments and his stand on immigration.
