Trump: Wall Between U.S. And Mexico Would Have A Door For ‘Good People’

If elected President, Republican candidate Donald Trump has said that he would deport the millions estimated to be living illegally in the United States, but on CBS Sunday he said that he would put a door in the wall between Mexico and the United States so the “good people” can return.

Trump has said that he would build a wall along the border between Mexico and the U.S. to curb illegal immigration — and has vowed that Mexico would foot the bill.

“It’s gonna be a great wall,” Trump said on the Sunday program. “This will be a wall with a big, very beautiful door because we want the legals to come back into the country.”

The “good people” are those who have worked hard and “have recommendations from people,” he said on CBS.

“We want people of talent,” Trump said. “We have a lot of good people, they’ve been here and they’ve done a good job. It’s a tough situation and in some cases they haven’t been good people, and there have been some problems.”

“The good ones we’ll expedite,” he said on CBS.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
