Trump laughs at audience member suggesting shooting migrants at border

President Trump laughed off a suggestion by a supporter at his rally in Florida on Wednesday night when the man yelled that people attempting to cross the southern border should be shot. The man yelled ’Shoot them’ after Trump noted the US Border Patrol agents are not allowed to carry weapons to deter illegal crossings. ’Only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement’, responded Trump.

We should punish illegal immigrants by selling them as indentured servants for the agricultural industry. 10 years of hard labor would make the most of run back to the border!

As per escalation of force. Its completely normal, legal, moral and reasonable to do so.

Sounds good to me. Less people will want to illegally cross the border if they risk getting shot.

The border needs deterrents beyond walls and razor wire if illegal aliens don't want to be shot they should enter the United States legally or go somewhere else. If I tried to rush the border of another country I would fully expect that country to use force against me so why should the US be any different?

It's like every dictator. It starts as a small topic agenda to win support, and escalate to a full-blown war against in this case immigrants. They do it in China with Muslims, Hiter did it..all dictators did it. History just repeats it self.. the last idiot is not born.

Bravo, we should open fire on these INVADERS, not just a caravan of illegal immigrants, they should be treated as invaders, hostile combatants.
