Jamiel Shaw Sr., whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant, is rejoicing now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee.
“I remember when we heard that Cruz had dropped out and Trump was going to be the presumptive nominee, I remember raising my hand in the air and telling my son, ‘we did it man, you know, we are half way there. This is all for you,’” he told the FOX Business Network’s Sandra Smith.
In February, former Mexican President Vicente Fox criticized the GOP frontrunner on the FOX Business Network over his plan to build a wall to keep illegal immigrants out of the U.S., but is now apologizing.
“I think it’s very important to invite Donald Trump to come to Mexico and to learn about the real Mexico that is I would think probably different,” he told Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly.
Shaw responded, “they want him [Trump] to come to try to get him to do something, almost like deceptive. They want him to believe that this is how we really are, everything that’s happening in America, that’s not who we really are. But we know it is – it happened to my son.”
Shaw’s son’s killer was released from prison a day before the shooting without immigration authorities putting a hold on him.
Meanwhile, many critical opponents have called Donald Trump racist over his stance on immigration.
“Trump doesn’t want people to be shot dead in the street by anybody, especially by somebody from another country, it is unacceptable, and to call [this] racist – it’s just like putting a stop sign in front of you. But you know, we just go around the stop sign,” Shaw said.
New reports of a Donald Trump presidency have immigrants across the nation rushing to apply for U.S. citizenship.
“According to Donald Trump no matter what happens, they are going to be deported, they are going to build a wall…they are going to start going after these gangs, the criminals in the jails, so that’s just one little step, but that’s not going to stop [anything]. This is a big picture, it’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than my son. My son is dead. I’m doing this for everybody else,” he said.
