The United States President Donald Trump said, in justification of his decision to deploy military on Mexico border in order to stop the migrants in US, that he want the migrants to enter in the United States legally and on merit basis.
Trump said that if he allows the migrants to enter in US illegally then he would be a failed politician. He said, “A vote for democrats is a vote for open borders and a vote for tax hikes… I think I would be a failed politician if I had to really promote open borders. Everybody comes in … we pay for all of the things we just went over”.
Trump said, “I want them to enter into our country, but they have to come in legally and they have to come in through merit system”.
Trump said that many people are already waiting for years to enter US legally and they will get a chance soon and if illegal migrants are allowed to enter in US then it will unfair with those who are waiting for years.
He said, “We have millions and millions of people right now on line, they have been waiting, sometimes (for) 10 years… they did it right… they signed every paper. They are waiting proudly on line. They are going to be admitted soon”.
Trump criticized policies of democrats on immigration, he said, “Their laws are no good… we have laws that are the laughingstock of the world because of the Democrats”.
