Immigration: No reason to apologize
“There’s no reason to apologize. Our immigration laws in this country are a total disaster. They’re laughed at all over the world. They’re laughed at for their stupidity, and we have to have strong immigration laws. I think if I apologize, it wouldn’t make ten cents’ worth of difference to them. We have nothing to apologize for. We have to have strong immigration laws to protect our country.”

“And you do have some countries that are in very bad shape and very tough places to live in. We didn’t discuss it, because the president knows me, and he knows where I’m coming from and I appreciate that. We did not discuss it,”
