Donald Trump’s campaign trail has been known for its strict stand on illegal aliens and legalization in the United States of America. The Republican presidential aspirant said Thursday that he will not stand down on his earlier decisions against illegal immigration.
Mr Trump, 70, reiterated that “there’s no path to legalization unless people leave the country.”

He added in the discussion with CNN’s Anderson Cooper after speaking to supporters in Manchester, N.H.: “When they come back in, they can start paying taxes.”
“They still have to leave?” Cooper asked.
“There’s no path to legalization unless they leave the country and come back,” Trump said.
In Mr Trump’s immigration plans, the law enforcement agencies will have the authority to deport “the bad guys” — referring to those who have committed crimes — from the United States.
However, Trump would not say whether every other illegal immigrant will also be deported. He tells Cooper that once the initial deportations occurred, “then we can talk.”
