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

August 23, 2015 11:01 a.m.

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.
