US Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump reaffirmed on Wednesday that people illegally in the US cannot receive legal status, despite recently suggesting he might be softening his stance on immigration.
Trump told thousands of supporters in Phoenix that “you cannot obtain legal status by entering the country illegally”.
His immigration plan will not offer a path to legal status or citizenship: “There will be no amnesty.”
He said that the United States welcomes immigrants but that “they have to come into our country legally and properly vetted and in a manner that serves the national interest.”
