Trump: ‘There will be no amnesty’
Donald Trump on Wednesday stated clearly there would be “no amnesty” for undocumented immigrants living in the US, putting to rest questions about whether he was softening his stance on the issue that’s driven much of his campaign. “For those here illegally today who are seeking legal status, they will have one route and one route only. To return home and apply for re-entry like everybody else under the rules of the new legal immigration system that I have outlined today,” the Republican presidential nominee said. He added: “There will be no amnesty.” “People will know that you cant just smuggle in, hunker down and wait to be legalized — it’s not going to work that way. Those days are over,” Trump said. The billionaire did not commit to deporting every undocumented immigrant living in the US as he previously had, but vowed that immigrants living in the US illegally would never have a path to legal status under his presidency.
