Thing is, he didn't call Mexican immigrants rapists though.
He never mentioned Mexican immigrants. He said Mexican illegal migrants. Mexican immigrants are not the same thing as Mexican illegal migrants, despite how many people manage to confuse the two.
He said he welcomed Mexican immigrants, that's why he said about building a door in his wall to let people through so they could work at all the jobs he claimed he would create.
But why would someone try to cross illegally and not go through the course of filling out the paper work and getting a visa?
That would be be people who know they have a criminal history and would be rejected. That would be the drug dealers and people with sexual assault history.
I don't blame you for getting it all wrong. there is a lot of mis-information around these days.
So someone trying to escape a country full of crime, violence, government corruption and doesnt want to wait years to do it should automatically labled a rapist? Especially by someone who's been on record bragging about sexual assualt. Hmmmm okay...
If you want to call asylum seekers rapists, then you're a pretty shitty person.
Asylum Seekers can claim for asylum. So far over 14,000 people in 2019 have been successful in this respect. You may check these numbers yourself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asylum_in_the_United_States#Refugee_quotas
However no one mentioned asylum seekers. This topic is about illegal migrants. People trying to enter the country illegally. It seems you don't understand what this term actually means.
- It's not people who file for a permit to live/work in a different country. That's Immigration.
- It's not people who approach Immigration control as they are trying to escape awful situations. That's Asylum.
Illegal migration is when people try to cross into another country without alerting authorities, and in fact try to evade them. Now why would someone choose this instead of going through migration controls? The most common reason by far is to hide previous convictions that would otherwise prevent them from entering.
It's sad that these differences need to be explained. But the bottom line is this. If you're not crossing the border via the authorities, you're are trying to evade them, and you're trying to evade them for a reason.
