During a White House roundtable discussion with Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, talking about MS-13 gang members, Donald Trump said

We have people coming into the country are trying to come in. We’re stopping a lot of them but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals and we’re taking them out of the country at a level, at a rate that’s never happened before and because of the weak laws they come in fast.
