Their background
Don't want the other one to change
Donald Trump:
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. 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."
"Anyone who is in the United States illegally is subject to deportation."

1.) Think of consequences illegal immigration really has on U.S.-American society.
2.) Imagine you would send a letter to Donald Trump. What would you say are the disadvantages and advantages for and against illegal immigration?
