Trump calls irregular migrants involved in crime in the US “animals”

"They are not human beings, they are animals," former US President Donald Trump said of irregular migrants who enter the country illegally and commit crimes such as murder in Michigan, a state he visited as part of the 2024 presidential race.

During his stump speech in Michigan, Republican presidential candidate Trump posed for a photo with a group of police officers, addressed the failures in the fight against crime and called irregular migrants who “barbarically” killed a female student in the US “animals”.

“In Georgia, a 22-year-old nursing student was barbarically murdered by an illegal immigrant animal. Democrats said, ‘Please don’t call them animals, call them people. I said, ‘They are not human beings.’ They are not human beings, they are animals.”

Criticizing US President Joe Biden for the inadequacy of security measures on the country’s southern border, Trump said, “If we don’t win the election on November 5, I think our country will be destroyed.”

In many of his stump speeches, Trump has claimed that among the migrants crossing the Mexican border illegally are many “murderers, drug dealers, the mentally ill and terrorists” who have escaped from prisons and mental institutions in their home countries and are fueling violent crime in the US.

The news that 22-year-old Laken Riley, a nursing student in the US state of Georgia, was killed by an irregular migrant of Venezuelan nationality on February 22, became an agenda in the country’s media and drew the reaction of anti-immigrant groups.

Last month, in Michigan, 25-year-old Ruby Garcia was killed by someone allegedly in the US illegally.
