Donald Trump has called immigrants entering the United States illegally “animals” and “not human.” The former president did this in a speech in Michigan, a state he, like Wisconsin, will visit this week.

LOOK. This is what Trump said in his campaign speech about illegal immigrants:

The Republican presidential candidate, flanked by several uniformed law enforcement officers, cited cases of violence allegedly involving illegal aliens and warned that violence and chaos would grip America if he does not win the Nov. 5 election.

Trump: “The Democrats are saying: please don’t call them animals, they’re people. I say: no, they are not people, they are not people. They are animals.”

During speeches, Trump regularly claims that immigrants who cross the border into Mexico illegally have escaped from prisons and asylums in their home countries. In the US they would then fuel crime and violence.

Although available data on the immigration status of criminals in the U.S. is sparse, researchers say people who are in the U.S. illegally are no more likely to commit violent crimes than people born in the country.
