Trump: Illegal Immigrants Committing Violent Crimes And Taking Jobs

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump claimed on Fox News this week that undocumented immigrants have murdered “thousands” of people in the United States.

Newsmax reported that the real-estate tycoon made the comment when he was asked about Jamiel Shaw, a Trump supporter whose son was killed by an immigrant. “He’s an amazing man. His son was a good student, was so exceptional. He was probably going to go to Stanford on a full scholarship, football. He was a quarterback. He's a beautiful kid. His father loved him so much,” the candidate said.

Trump alleged that the incident “is just one story,” and that “this is happening by the thousands.” He continued: “Illegal immigrants are killing thousands of people. It happened just recently in California, where a veteran, a 66-year-old veteran, female, raped, killed and sodomized by an illegal immigrant. It’s so out of control.”

According to fact checkers, the number of undocumented immigrants committing violent crimes in the United States is much lower than Trump’s estimate.

The candidate accused foreign-born residents of “taking jobs (and) a lot of other things.” He told Fox News: “I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous. We have to create a border and we have to build a wall. And the wall will work.”

Trump has proposed a wall along much of the U.S.-Mexico border to stem the flow of migrants. He says that as president, he would make the Mexican government finance the project.
