In a speech at The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2013, Donald Trump criticized America’s decades-long policy of restricting immigration from Europe, in favor of non-Western countries.
“I say to myself ‘why aren’t we letting people in from Europe?’” Trump said.
“I have many friends, many, many friends – and nobody wants to talk [about] this, nobody wants to say it – but I have many, many friends from Europe. They wanna come in.”
“People I know, tremendous people, hardworking people. They can’t come in.”
“I know people who’s sons went to Harvard – top in their class, went to the Wharton school of finance – great, great students.”
“We educate them, we make them really good, they go home [because] they can’t stay here, so they work from their country, and . . . they work very effectively against us. Now how stupid is that?”
Since 1965, America’s immigration policy has been to restrict immigrants from majority White countries, and to let non-White immigrants in their place.
