WASHINGTON D.C.: President Barack Obama denounced the immigration policies of leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday (Friday in Manila), without naming him directly, in a speech to Latino political leaders.

“The greatness of America comes not from building walls,” Obama told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute anniversary awards gala.

“The anti-immigrant sentiment that has infected our politics is not new, but it is wrong,” he said, before adding that “economists agree that immigration does not hurt our economy; it grows our economy,” he added.

Trump, a billionaire real estate developer who has never held elected office, has promised, if he wins the White House, to expel immigrants in the United States illegally and to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.
