Ivana Trump: We Need Immigrants To Clean For Us
The most famous ex-wife of Donald Trump, Ivana, has made some controversial comments while trying to support his immigration plan.
“I’m an immigrant,” the Czech-Republic-born woman said to The New York Post.
“As long as you come here legally and get a proper job … we need immigrants. Who’s going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? Americans don’t like to do that,” she said.
The Hill reports:
The Republican presidential front-runner’s first wife insisted she has “nothing against Mexicans.”
“But if they [come] here — like this 19-year-old, she’s pregnant, she crossed over a wall that’s this high. She gives birth in American hospital, which is for free. The child becomes American automatically,” she said. “She brings the whole family, she doesn’t pay the taxes, she doesn’t have a job, she gets housing, she gets the food stamps. Who’s paying? You and me.”
Donald Trump has promised throughout his presidential campaign to build a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and make Mexico pay for it.
When he announced his candidacy in June, he infamously referred to undocumented immigrants from Mexico as “rapists,” drawing strong backlash.
