Larry King asked Trump about a hypothetical familyof illegal immigrants, who had children, when Trump explained,“I don’t want to comment on that one rightnow, Larry, because that’s the sort of aquestion where I just don’t want to answer itright now.”

“We do have to have laws for the border,” Trumpexplained, “The crime is incredible, the drug trafficking isunbelievable, and I have to tell you, I’ve beentold by many of your liberal friends at the top of the line, in LosAngeles as an example, that they’re voting forme because they can’t take itanymore.”

“You see what’s happened with LA; yousee what’s happened with so many differentplaces,” suggested Trump. “And, you know, I have greatrelationships with Mexico and with the Mexican people. I have greatrelationships with Hispanics… but we have to bea nation of laws.”
