Trump: We Can’t Stop Drugs Coming in If We Are Going to Play Politics
TRUMP: “And we can stop it. But we can’t stop it if we are going to play politics. And the numbers you are talking about our peanuts compared — you will make the money back numerous times a year. In 2017, drugs killed over 70,000 of our fellow citizens. Think of that. That’s like a football stadium loaded up. And imposed costs on our society in excess of $700 billion. In the last two years, ICE officers arrested 266,000 illegal aliens. Think of that. With criminal records, including 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent murders or killings. The crisis of illegal immigration impacts all Americans, threatening public safety, overwhelming public resources, straining our local schools and hospitals, undermining U.S. workers, and claiming countless innocent lives. And I will tell you, I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally. They have to come in through a process."
