Trump: ‘I Want People to Come into Our Country on a Merit-Based System’

‘But we want great people that love our country, that respect our country and that want to work’

RUSH EXCERPT:

TRUMP: “He came in, then he took chain migration and he brought his mother and his father and his brother and his sister, and his aunt and his grandfather. None of them working. It ended up being approximately 22 people came in. It’s called a chain. Isn’t that wonderful? A chain. And we are stuck with them. We are stuck with these people. And I don’t want a chain. I want people to come into our country on a merit-based system. And I want them to help all of the great companies that are moving back into the united States. They are moving to Michigan, they are moving to Ohio, they are moving to Pennsylvania, they are moving to north and south Carolina. They are coming in, they are moving to Florida, and yes they are moving into Kentucky.
[Cheers and applause]
And with what we have done, we have become so successful that we need people to come in with all these companies coming in. But we want great people that love our country, that respect our country and that want to work.”
