Donald Trump to Syrian refugee children: 'You can't come here' @ 9:58 pm
On Feb 09, 2016
Donald Trump offered a blunt message Monday for Syrian children refugees seeking asylum in the U.S.: “You can’t come here.”
"We don’t know where their parents come from, they have no documentation whatsoever," the bombastic billionaire said during a town hall in New Hampshire just a day before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary.
"I’ve talked to the greatest legal people, spoken to the greatest security people. There’s absolutely no way of saying where these people come from. They may be from Syria, they may be ISIS, they may be ISIS related,” Trump said.
When asked by a man in attendance at the town hall whether he would allow children from Syria into the U.S. who simply wanted a better life and to attend school, Trump said he ‘d be able to tell them they couldn’t come.
"I can look in their faces and say, ‘You can’t come here,’” he said.
The comments amount to Trump’s latest anti-immigrant diatribe. Over the course of his presidential campaign, the GOP’s 2016 front-runner has called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and has called for the U.S. to ban all Muslims from entering the nation.
Trump, as well as other GOP presidential candidates, has also called on Congress to limit, or prevent altogether, the resettlement of refugees from Muslim countries like Iraq and Syria in the U.S., citing potential security risks. NYDailyNews Reports.
