The Wall Street Journal: Trump says he’d immediately deport ‘criminal illegal immigrants’

DES MOINES, Iowa — Donald Trump sought Saturday to reassert control of an immigration story line that has bedeviled his campaign in the last week, telling an Iowa audience that he would deport “criminal illegal immigrants” immediately upon being sworn into office.

“In recent days, the media — as it usually does — has missed the whole point on immigration,” Trump said.
