In August, Trump released his immigration plan including a proposal to make Mexico pay for a permanent fence on the border between the two countries. He also proposed to introduce mandatory returns of all criminal immigrants and penalties for Mexicans overstaying a US visa, as well as ending birthright citizenship.

In announcing his presidential bid on June 16, Trump said illegal immigrants from Mexico bring mostly drugs and crime to the United States, and characterized Mexican immigrants as rapists.

The billionaire businessman has been criticized for his controversial statements, including in relation to immigrants, Muslims, and women.
