Immigration Reform That Will Make America Great

Again (from

donaldjtrump.com

video

The

three core principles of Donald J. Trump's immigration plan

1

. A nation without borders is not a nation.

There must be a wall across the southern border.

2

. A nation without laws is not a nation.

Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.

. A nation that does not serve its own citizens is not a nation.

Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.
