Trump releases his new immigration policy
WASHINGTON — GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is doubling down on his stance against illegal immigration with a bombshell policy paper that calls for forcing Mexico to foot the cost of a border wall by impounding the money undocumented workers send home, while ending birthright citizenship for the American-born children of non-citizen parents.
“Mexico’s leaders have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country” while illegal workers send millions back the country in remittances, the paper states. “In short, the Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners. They are responsible for this problem, and they must help pay to clean it up.”
