Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said immigrations laws are so lax that Border Patrol agents can’t do their jobs, The Hill reports.
“People are walking across the border right now, right in front of these great people we have,” Trump told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”
“We have wonderful Border Patrol people,” he said. “They can do their job, but they’re not allowed to do the job.”
“People are walking into the country [and] nobody even knows where they come from,” he added. “They walk right past guards that are told not to do anything.”
At times, Trump sounded almost paranoid.
“We have lost control of our country,” he said. “We have lost control of our borders.”
Trump wants to tighten border security, cease birthright citizenship and require Mexico to build a wall at the border.
