President Trump attended a rally to support Matt Rosendale, a candidate for the Montana Senate. Later in the speech, Trump bashed the Democrats. He claimed that they were for opening the borders with Mexico, and would "let the crime in." The Democrats at that time supported tightening border security, but didn't support his plans for the border wall, or his aggressive immigration agenda. Also, there wasn't any evidence which showed that immigration led to higher crime rates. In fact, studies had shown lower crime rates amongst legal and undocumented immigrants, than that of native-born people.
