A “legal immigrant” welcomed on the rally stage by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump Sunday proceeded to blast illegal immigration to impressive applause.
Just one day after Trump’s Secret Service security scare, the businessman pointed out Alex Stypik in the Bloomingdale, Illinois, crowd and asked him to get on stage.
“We want people to come into our country,” Trump said, before pointing to a man saying, “But they got to come legally like you, right?”
“Oh, I’d love to get you up on this stage. I’d love to show ’em that shirt. I dunno,” Trump said, “These guys [pointing to security]… I’d love to get him up here. Can I? … Bring him up. He knows if he makes a move he’s gonna get clobbered by these guys.”

Stypik explained that his father brought their family to the US when he was five years old and “went through hell to get us citizenship.”
“I came to this country when I was five years old and my dad went through hell to get us citizenship and we did it by the book. And I’m here because I’m agitated that the media does not separate legal immigration from illegal. People spill out their guts to come here legally and it’s just really a shame that they give you a bad name.”
“You do support immigration,” Stypik said, patting Trump on the back.
