Last quote by Donald J. Trump on Immigration

Some of the people that he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we talk him out of that, because frankly, they're great people. I've had tough primaries almost every time I've run, mostly because of the position I've taken on immigration. People will say, Well I can get to the right of Jeff on immigration.' But we came out all right.feedback

All quotes by Donald J. Trump on Immigration

Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first. We are facing the symptom of a larger problem, illegal immigration, along with the many other chronic immigration problems Washington has left unsolved.feedback

We must also have heart and compassion for unemployed, struggling, and forgotten Americans. Above all else, we must remember that young Americans have dreams too. Being in government means setting priorities. Our first and highest priority in advancing immigration reform must be to improve jobs, wages and security for American workers and their families. It is now time for Congress to act!feedback

Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA! I look forward to working with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to finally address all of these issues in a manner that puts the hardworking citizens of our country first.feedback

While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honoured until their date of expiration up to two full years from today. Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration. This is a gradual process, not a sudden phase out. Permits will not begin to expire for another six months and will remain active for up to 24 months. Thus, in effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.feedback

We love the dreamers. I always understood that with DACA, we need special heart. We have to understand the other side of that equation, and I do understand that side, and I am somebody with a lot of heart and you know, you've heard what I said. Just, relax and let's let it all play out. Because I think everyone's going to be happy in the end.feedback

We don't want to hurt those kids. DACA is a very, very difficult subject for me.feedback

Believe me, if we have to close down our government, we're building that wall. The American people voted for immigration control. That's one of the reasons I'm here, and that is what the American people deserve, and they're going to get it.feedback

Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life's work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now eighty-five years old, and after more than fifty years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon.feedback

Finally, the reforms in the RAISE Act will help ensure that newcomers to our wonderful country will be assimilated, will succeed, and will achieve the American Dream.feedback

I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio. He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He's a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.feedback

No, no, no, we want people coming in legally. Historical norms.feedback

It's a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially, yet in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon. Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, we will have so many more benefits. It will save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling families - including immigrant families - enter the middle class.feedback

This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families, and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. The RAISE Act prevents new migrants and new immigrants from collecting welfare and protects U.S. workers from being displaced. And that's a very big thing. They're not going to come in and just immediately go and collect welfare. That doesn't happen under the RAISE Act. They can't do that.feedback

This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first. The reforms in the RAISE Act will help ensure that newcomers to our wonderful country will be assimilated, will succeed, and will achieve the American dream.feedback

This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first. It puts great downward pressure on people who work with their hands and work on their feet. For some people, they may think that's a symbol of America's virtue and generosity. I think it's a symbol that we're not committed to working class Americans and we need to change that.feedback

This competitive application process will favor applicants who can speak English, financially support themselves and their families and demonstrate skills that will contribute to our economy. This legislation, will not only restore our competitive edge in the 21st century, but it will restore the sacred bonds of trust between America and its citizens. This legislation demonstrates our compassion for struggling American families who deserve an immigration system that puts their needs first and that puts America first.feedback

For many years, [Gang Members] have exploited America's weak borders and lax immigration enforcement, to bring drugs and violence to cities and towns all across America. They're there right now because of weak political leadership […] weak policing, and in many cases because the police weren't allowed to do their job. I met police that are great police that aren't allowed to do their job because they have a pathetic mayor or a mayor that doesn't know what's going on.feedback

We're calling on all members of Congress to honor grieving American families by passing these lifesaving measures in the House, in the Senate, and then sending them to my desk for a very rapid signature. I promise you–it will be done quickly.feedback

You have a gang called MS-13. They don't like to shoot people. They like to cut people. They do things that nobody can believe.feedback

There is a very good chance we can do a solar wall, which would actually look good. A nation without borders is not a nation.feedback

It's a decision that I make, and it's a decision that's very very hard to make. I really understand the situation now. I understand the situation very well. What I'd like to do is a comprehensive immigration plan. But our country and political forces are not ready yet. In other words, if you can't see through that wall -- so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall.feedback

You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation's immigration laws and that's including the existing immigration laws. For years the pundits, journalists, politicians in Washington refused to hear your voices, but on Election Day 2016 your voices were heard all across the entire world. No one died in vain, I can tell you that. It's time to support our police to protect our families and to save American lives and also to start getting smart.feedback

Countless innocent Americans including the loved ones of many families in the room […] You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation's immigration laws and that's including the existing immigration laws. No one died in vain, I can tell you that.feedback

A total rewrite of our immigration system into a merit-based system.feedback

I do have a big heart. We're going to take care of everybody… But I will tell you, we're looking at this, the whole immigration situation, we're looking at it with great heart.feedback
