Trump kicked off his campaign in June by saying that the U.S "has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you… They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
