"I love the Hispanic people," Trump said Saturday at an event hosted by the National Federation of Republican Assemblies in Nashville, Tennessee. "Incredible energy, incredible people. I love the people."
On Friday, Trump also met with the family members of victims killed by illegal immigrants in Norwood, Massachusetts. He told CNN afterward that there was "crime wave of illegal immigrants" plaguing the country.
"There's a crime wave like nobody's ever seen before," he said. "We're not going to let it continue."
