In a meeting with a border patrol union leader on Friday, Donald Trump claimed that undocumented immigrants with criminal records are being allowed to stay in the country in order to vote in the upcoming presidential election.
“I’m sure you’re not going to write it,” Trump told reporters covering the meeting, according to a transcript posted by NBC’s Ali Vitali. “To me that’s— they’re letting people pour into the country so they can go vote.”
Trump was responding to a statement from Art Del Cueto, the vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing border patrol agents that has endorsed Trump, according to the Los Angeles Times.
