Donald Trump gave his most specific outline of immigration policy to date in an interview Wednesday.
In an interview with CNN, the businessman and Republican presidential candidate said he would deport all of the approximately 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, although he didn’t clearly explain how he would find them.
But then Trump, who controversially said many Mexican illegal immigrants are “rapists” during his campaign launch, said he would provide a way for “the good ones” to reenter the country legally, although he does not support a path to full citizenship. “Legal status,” he said. “We got to move ’em out, we’re going to move ’em back in if they’re really good people.”
Trump was vague about whether he would allow undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children to stay: “It’s a tough situation,” he said, and, “it depends.”
