Speaking at CPAC on Thursday, Donald Trump said that illegal immigrants, whom Democrats and House GOP leaders want to legalize, will simply not vote for Republicans.
He blasted those who want open borders, saying, “We’re either a country or we’re not. We either have borders or we don’t.”
“You have a border. You have a country,” Trump said before emphatically declaring that we’re just “a nothing” without borders.
If conservatives and Republicans legalize illegal immigrants and allow more to come into the country, Trump said, “I don’t care who stands up, you won’t get one vote.”
“Of those 11 million potential voters, you will not get any of those votes–no matter what you do, no matter how nice you are, no matter how soft you are, no matter how many times you say, ‘Rip down that fence and let them all in,'” Trump said.
He said that illegal immigrants are “taking your jobs, and you better be careful” about pushing amnesty legislation.
