"You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation's immigration laws and that's including the existing immigration laws," Trump told the family members of those killed by illegal aliens. "For years the pundits, journalists, politicians in Washington refused to hear your voices, but on Election Day 2016 your voices were heard all across the entire world. No one died in vain, I can tell you that."
