Trump: Ted Cruz ‘Was in Charge of Amnesty’

‘You wouldn’t even be talking and you wouldn’t have asked that as the first question if it weren’t for me’

you’ve called for a deportation force to remove the 11 million undocumented immigrants from the united States. You’ve also promised to let, what you call, the good ones come back in. Your words, the good ones, after they’ve been deported. Senator Cruz would not allow them to come back in. He says, that’s the biggest difference between the two of you. He calls your plan amnesty. Is it?
TRUMP: "First of all, he was in charge of amnesty. He was the leader, and you can ask Marco, because they’ve been debating this every debate that we’ve had. As far as coming back in, number one, you wouldn’t even be talking and you wouldn’t have asked that as the first question if it weren’t for me in my opening when I talked about illegal immigration. It wouldn’t even be a big subject. But we either have a country or we don’t have a country. We have at least 11 million people in this country that came in illegally. They will go out. They will come back, some will come back, the best. Through a process. They have to come back legally. They have to come back through a process, and it may not be a very quick process, but I think that’s very fair and very fine. They’re going to get online with other people. The best of them will come back, but they’re going to come back through a process."
