On account of the president's cowardly retreat from the wall, Ann Coulter is too angry to type. In her place, we present a guest columnist outraged at the president's capitulation.
It's coming from all over South and Latin America, and it's coming probably—probably—from the Middle East. But we don't know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence. ... And it's got to stop, and it's got to stop fast.—Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015
We take anybody. Come on in, anybody. Just come on in. Not anymore. ... We need a system that serves our needs, not the needs of others.—Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
The costs for the United States have been extraordinary: U.S. taxpayers have been asked to pick up hundreds of billions in health care costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc.—Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper,[PDF] Aug. 16, 2015
Whether it's dangerous materials being smuggled across the border, terrorists entering on visas or Americans losing their jobs to foreign workers, these are the problems we must now focus on fixing.—Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems.—Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015
Thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country, and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now.—Donald Trump, Washington, D.C., Jan. 8, 2019
These are matters of life and death for our country and its people.—Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
(W)e will reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, the forgotten people. Workers. We're going to take care of our workers.—Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
(P)eople are saying, "What's going on? I just want a job. Just get me a job. I don't need the rhetoric. I want a job."—Donald Trump, New York City, June 16, 2015
The truth is our immigration system is worse than anybody ever realized. But the facts aren't known because the media won't report on them. The politicians won't talk about them, and the special interests spend a lot of money trying to cover them up because they are making an absolute fortune.—Donald Trump,Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
The cost of building a permanent border wall pales mightily in comparison to what American taxpayers spend every single year on dealing with the fallout of illegal immigration on their communities, schools and unemployment offices.—Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper, Aug. 16, 2015
The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 62 percent of households headed by illegal immigrants use some form of cash or non-cash welfare programs like food stamps or housing assistance.—Donald Trump, Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016

Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages. ... We will not be taken advantage of anymore.—Donald Trump, Immigration Policy Paper, Aug. 16, 2015
I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.—Donald Trump, every speech, every day, everywhere, June 16, 2015 - Nov. 8, 2016
A lot of people say, "Oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall." I wasn't kidding. I don't kid. I don't kid.—Donald Trump, Major Cities Chiefs Association Winter Conference, Washington, D.C., Feb. 8, 2017
Remember, under a Trump administration it's called America first. Remember that.—Donald Trump,Phoenix, Aug. 31, 2016
