I would like to introduce, first, the mayor. He's going to say a few words. Then I will say a few words. We were treated so nicely. We learned so much in such a quick period of time. But the mayor has done a fantastic job. Mr. Mayor. Thank you so much, Mr. Trump. Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I'm Pete Saenz. I'm the mayor of Laredo, Texas. And we're excited to have Mr. Donald Trump here in Laredo, Texas. It's has provided us an opportunity to present to Mr. Trump and his entourage what Laredo is all about. You know, Laredo is the number one land port in the nation. We do -- Laredo, per se, does over 40 percent of the Mexican trade. Laredo is known for obviously transportation. You can see the big trucks behind us and logistics. We are -- NAFTA has been very good to us. We're excited about that. And we also have oil and gas production in our county and it also provides a revenue to us. Mr. Trump has brought up certain issues, the immigration issue in particular. We, at least I feel personally that immigration reform is required, need. We need protection in the border area. We need to secure the border. But we also need other elements, you know, obviously, the immigration act or bill. So, with that in mind, it's a pleasure to have Mr. Trump. The excitement that he brings is also very on the plus side for our city, and we appreciate all of the attention. But we know that the attention comes primarily through this gentleman here. Mr. Trump. Thank you, Pete. Thank you very much. [Video Begins] Well, thank you very much for being here. It's been an amazing experience. Mexico is booming, absolutely booming. And Jesus, the city manager, and Pete have done an amazing job right here. But a lot of what's happening here is because of the fact that Mexico is doing so well. It's just doing beyond -- beyond what anybody ever thought. And I don't know if that's good for the United States, but it's good for Mexico. Anybody have any questions? [Off Microphone Question] Yes, I think we will win the Hispanic vote. I have thousands of Mexicans and Hispanics. And I think when it comes right down -- I don't know if you saw the poll, but they just did a big poll in Nevada, the state of Nevada. And I'm way ahead. And more importantly as far as I'm concerned, I'm way, way ahead with the Hispanics, well into the 30s, which -- and I think second is like 11. So I have a great relationship. Over the years, thousands and thousands of Hispanics have worked for me and now work for me. And the relationship is very good. Question. [Crosstalk] [Off Microphone Question] How many people killed? Seven people this year Laredo. In Chattanooga, five people were killed in less than hour, five Marines. That's an American city coming from the Middle East. Yes. So, it means that killers come from all over the world. I agree with that. No, I agree with that. And they come through here. But they come from all over the world. I agree with that. [Crosstalk] You keep saying that there's a danger, but the crime along the border is down. What danger are you talking about? There's great danger with the illegals. And we're just discussing that. But we have a tremendous danger on the border with the illegals coming in. Yes, ma'am. Have you seen any evidence here to confirm your fears about Mexico sending its criminals across the border? Yes, I have. And I have heard it. And I have heard it from a lot of different people. And, in fact, as you know, the Border Patrol was the one that invited me. I think most of you have that invitation. We sent it. The Border Patrol invited me. And then they canceled, because, frankly, they don't want to get involved. They know the problem. The reason they invited me was because of the tremendous problem and the tremendous crime and all of the things that you're talking about. So, they invited me. And then, at the last moment I mean, we were virtually in the air and they said, we can't get involved. And I heard they got those orders from Washington. What evidence specifically have you seen? We will be showing you the evidence. When? When? How? [Off Microphone] called you a racist. Well, you know, I have -- we just landed and there were a lot of people at the airport. And they were all waving American flags and they were all in favor of Trump and what I'm doing, and virtually everyone that we saw. There was such a great, warm -- I was actually surprised. But there was such great warmth at the airport with all of those people that were there. So, we're very, very honored. Yes, go ahead. [Crosstalk] [Off Microphone Question] No, they were chanting for me. No, they were [Off Microphone] chanting against you. I didn't see that. What is the most surprising part of this trip being here on the border for you? Well, I think meeting the mayor and meeting Jesus, the city manager. I think these are tremendous people. They're doing a tremendous job. Come on, Jesus. Say a word. This man -- I'm going to steal him to run something for me. He's fantastic, the city manager. Thank you, Mr. Trump. And welcome, everybody, to the city of Laredo. This is one of the greatest cities on the border. And we're a vibrant city. And as Mr. Trump mentioned, you know, the trade that we have here with Mexico, this is where the rubber meets the road. And all of you can see it right behind us. This is where all the trade comes through that Mexico and the United States have in common right here. And not only that, but this is where it goes to the rest of the world. And I will tell you what. We wouldn't be where we are if it wouldn't be for the support that mayor and members of the city council that are also here with us, council members, and I advised -- and Council Member Perez, we are very fortunate to have the support that they provide us in order for this city to be such a great city and the number one inland import in the country. Thank you very much.. [Crosstalk] Do you agree with Mr. Trump about the way to make the border safe is to build this long wall? Well, that's a federal issue. And we have our comments on that. What is your comment? We don't think that's necessary at this time. I think there's other ways that we can work together with the federal government. I think, right now, we have a process that we work together with Border Patrol, CPB, and everybody to be able to get some of these things done. The relationship that the city of Laredo has with the federal government, with all the law enforcement agencies is a tremendous one. Thank you. [Crosstalk] No, no, not at all. There are different sections. This is one section, but there are different sections. [Crosstalk] ... actually do to change the illegal immigration... Well, the one thing you have to do, and as Jesus was saying and as the mayor was saying, there is a huge problem with the illegals coming through. And in this section, it's a problem. In some sections, it's a massive problem. And you have to do -- you have to create -- you have to make the people that come in, they have to be legal. Very simple. [Crosstalk] You have to let people do their job, the Border Patrols, which, by the way, it seems the unions are very much involved with the Border Patrols. But have to let them do their job. They want to do their job. That's why they invited me, that they invited me. I didn't come here. The Border Patrols invited me because they have got such a problem. They want to be able to do their job. If they can't do their job, believe me, they're unhappy. They want to be able to do their job. [Crosstalk] Are you still in favor of a wall? Yes, in certain sections, you have to have a wall, absolutely. And, by the way, the wall -- the wall will save you a tremendous amount of money. But you absolutely -- there are areas that you have to have the wall. [Crosstalk] [Off Microphone] these from El Chapo? The who? From El Chapo, the drug cartel leader? I don't know anything about it. [Crosstalk] [Off Microphone] ...potential third-party run if the GOP [Off Microphone] Donald Trump: Look, I'm a Republican. I'm a conservative. I'm running. I'm in first place, by a lot, it seems, according to all the polls. I want to run as a Republican. I think I will get the nomination. We will see soon enough. But I think I will get the nomination. The best way to win is for me to get the nomination and run probably against Hillary. Hillary is the worst -- look, easily, she's the worst secretary of state in the history of our country. She's going to be beaten and I'm the one to beat her. And I will take jobs back. The reason I won with the Hispanic vote and I win all over with the Hispanic vote, because they know I will take jobs back from China, I will take jobs back from Japan and every other country that's killing us. I will bring the jobs back. And, you know, the Hispanics are going to get those jobs and they're going to love Trump. And they already do. [Crosstalk] [Off Microphone Question] No, they weren't insulted, because the press misinterprets my words. What would you do with the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are already here? The first thing we have to do is strengthen our borders. And after that, we're going to have plenty of time to talk about it. Thank you very much. Thank you, everybody. Thank you. Thank you.
