Donald Trump promised to remove undocumented immigrants who have committed illegal acts in the final 2016 presidential debate, referring to them as “bad hombres” drawing immediate response on social media.
“One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords…we’re going to get them out, we’re going to secure the border,” he said. “We have some bad hombres here, and we’re going to get them out.”
Trump has famously promised to build a wall along Mexico’s border in order to stop illegal immigration, insisting that he will get Mexico to pay for it. After Trump’s recent meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, conflicting reports emerged about their conversation. Trump said they did not discuss payment of the wall, but Peña Nieto later said he told Trump he has no intention of paying for it. Clinton criticized the meeting as a “diplomatic incident.”
