(THE HILL) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday informally polled the audience at a Fox News-hosted town hall on the issue of mass deportations of undocumented immigrants.
"So you have somebody who's been in the country for 20 years. Has done a great job, job and everything else and okay. Do we take him and the family, and her and him or whatever and send them out?" Trump asked to the audience during an event with Fox News' Sean Hannity, set to air Tuesday night, according to excerpts.
"Or somebody really has, Sean, you know, it's called like the merit system other than they did break the law in the first place. Okay? It's a little unfair. ... We're gonna let people come in anyway. They'll come in legally. We're gonna let people come in anyway. Not gonna have an impact. So, do we tell these people to get out, number one, or do we work with them? ... I'm just curious."
