Election HQ Trump on Immigration: There Could Be a 'Softening,' But We'll Follow the Law
In a special town hall event hosted by Sean Hannity in Austin, Texas, Donald Trump said there could be a "softening" in his immigration proposals to accommodate law-abiding families.
"There could certainly be a softening because we’re not looking to hurt people," Trump said. "We want people - we have some great people in this country. We have some great, great people in this country but we’re going to follow the laws of this country and what people don’t realize - we have very, very strong laws."
"But Obama doesn’t follow them," Hannity said. "He doesn’t care."
"No," Trump replied. "They don’t follow them. We’re going to follow the laws."
The Republican nominee also reaffirmed his commitment to building a wall along the southern border and making Mexico pay for it.
"We're building the wall," he said. "It's going to happen. It's 100 percent."
He said that the cost of the wall would be a fraction of Mexico's $60 billion trade deficit with the U.S.
"On trade, they’re absolutely killing us, they’re killing us. They’re killing us at the border, they’re killing us on trade; we have a trade deficit with Mexico of close to 60 billion dollars a year. So, right there you can build a wall because the wall’s a fraction of that! Right there!”
