Immigrants who enter the United States legally are a big part of the American workforce because they do the grunt work nobody else wants to, Donald Trump's ex-wife says.
Ivana Trump says she supports the tough-as-nails immigration policies her former spouse, the Republican presidential front-runner, is calling for because they're on target.
"As long as you come here legally and get a proper job … We need immigrants. Who's going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? Americans don't like to do that," Ivana, who was born in the Czech Republic, told The New York Post.
Much of Trump's immigration rhetoric has been aimed at Mexico, which he said should pay for a 10-foot-high border wall to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States.
"[I have] nothing against Mexicans … But if they [come] here — like this 19-year-old, she's pregnant, she crossed over a wall that's this high. She gives birth in an American hospital, which is for free. The child becomes American automatically," Ivana said.
"She brings the whole family, she doesn't pay the taxes, she doesn't have a job, she gets housing, she gets the food stamps. Who's paying? You and me."
