LAS VEGAS (AP) — Business developer and Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump says his comments about immigration have become a movement and has pointed to violence perpetrated by immigrants in the U.S. illegally to defend his stance.
Trump is speaking on Saturday to a couple of thousand people gathered for the annual Libertarian-led FreedomFest inside a Planet Hollywood ballroom on the Las Vegas Strip.
Trump brought on stage Jamiel Shaw Sr., a Southern California man whose 17-year-old son was shot and killed in 2008 by a man in the country illegally. Shaw told the crowd about his son’s death, adding he trusts Trump.
One Arizona woman who says she’s been a Libertarian for 43 years held a sign protesting that “Donald Trump is not a Libertarian.”
