Trump Mocks Asylum Seekers Who Claim They Fear For Their Lives: ‘A Big Fat Con Job’

As President Donald Trump spoke about immigration on Thursday at his campaign rally in Michigan, he launched into a tangent at one point where he mocked immigration lawyers and asylum seekers begging the United States to protect them.

As Trump bashed Democrats proposing amnesty for those fleeing desperate conditions in their homelands, he accused immigration lawyers of coaching migrants to tell U.S. officials “I am very afraid for my life. I am afraid for my life.”

“I look at the guy, he looks like he just got out of the ring, he’s the heavyweight champion of the world,” Trump said. “It’s a big fat con job, folks. A big fat con job.”
