Will do "more to promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration."
"Will streamline the visa process to return America to its rightful place as the world's top destination for artists and art students."
"I cannot guarantee that it is going to be in the first 100 days. But what I can guarantee is that we will have in the first year an immigration bill that I strongly support and that I'm promoting. And I want to move that forward as quickly as possible."
