Donald Trump gave his major immigration speech last night in Arizona. The key notes are below. If you watch nothing else, go to 2:06 where he asks the Angel Moms to join him on stage. They each wear a shirt showing their family member who was killed by an illegal immigrant.
Each of the angel moms goes to the microphone and talks of the person they lost to an illegal immigrant. It is VERY moving and emotional.
Key things to watch in the speech (video below):
1:08 Our immigration policy should make life better for American citizens.
1:09 Choose “immigrants we think are the likeliest to thrive, flourish and love us”. Comments on security.
1:15 In many ways, illegal immigrants are treated better than our veterans.
(points continued below the video)
1:17:30 “Hear these words”…”There is only one issue in the immigration debate. The well-being of the American people”.
1:18:30 “We will be fair, just and compassionate to all.”
1:20 Hillary promises unskilled immigration which hurts inner city citizens of America.
1:21 “What the hell are we doing?”
1:22 Hillary doesn’t have an immigration plan other than open borders. Trump lists who advised him.
1:23 “We will build a great wall along the southern border … and Mexico will pay for the wall. They are great people but they will pay for the wall”.
1:24 Above and below ground sensors on the wall.
1:25 Mexico will work with us, sure of that after meeting Mexico’s President today.
1:26 Zero tolerance for criminal aliens. We will begin moving them out – day one. The police know who these people are.
1:32 Davis-Oliver bill will ensure illegal immigrant criminals are identified and removed.
1:33 “Just like Hillary Clinton has evaded justice OK?”
1:34 Hire 5,000 more border control agents. Thanks them.
1:35 Blocks funding for sanctuary cities which don’t work with Federal policies.
1:36 Will cancel Obama’s two amnesties on illegal immigrants.
1:37 Summarises his other key policies – “Don’t forget…”
1:39 Suspend visas to place where adequate screening can not occur…places like Syria and Libya.
1:42 Get money from Gulf States to create safe zones in countries at war instead of creating more refugees.
1:44 Applicants will be asked their views about honor killings, respect for women and minorities, and other topics – before they are issued visas.
1:44:40 We will make countries take back their people when we order them deported.
1:48 We will complete the biometric visa entry/exit tracking system.
1:50 “Removing visa overstayers will be a top priority of my administration.”
1:53 “Many arrivals have greatly enriched our country”.
1:54 Assimilation and upward mobility as important concepts.
1:55 Immigration policy – what we want. A system that serves our needs, not the needs of others. America first. Choose immigrants based on skill, merit and proficiency.
1:56:30 Hillary has done nothing for African Americans in 35 years. What have you got to lose by choosing me?
2:04 We deserve answers from Hillary on these (immigration) issues.
2:05 November 8th is our last chance to fix the immigration system (and Supreme Court justice nomination).
2:06 Asks Angel Moms to join him on stage. They have shirts showing their family member who was killed by an illegal immigrant.
