Every bit of what he said is true.
No it wasn't. He said that Mexico as sending these people. Now let's see you back his statement proving that the government of Mexico is choosing which people are being sent to America. It wasn't until his ignorance was pointed out to him that he start talking about illegal immigrants.
"I don’t see how there is any room for misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the statement I made on June 16th during my Presidential announcement speech," Trump wrote, adding, "What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc."
"Many fabulous people come in from Mexico and our country is better for it. But these people are here legally, and are severely hurt by those coming in illegally," wrote Trump. "I am proud to say that I know many hard working Mexicans—many of them are working for and with me…and, just like our country, my organization is better for it."

What seems clear and apparent is that you have no problem with misusing a system to you perceived benefit. As evidence to this let's look at your post count and your star count:
So you average 8,127.6 stars a post or you use a cheap hack to make yourself look different than you really are. Either way, your comments are not appealing to me at all.
Now let's see you back his statement proving that the government of Mexico is choosing which people are being sent to America.
Shocking US government leaflet tells Mexican immigrants they can collect food stamp benefits without admitting they're in the country illegally
Conservative legal group obtained Agriculture Department flyer
'You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children'
Program in all 50 Mexican consulates in the U.S. helps push food stamps

The last three former nominees were absent of this convention, the only two former Republican Presidents also absent, former first ladies also absent, many important conservative leaders also absent, only few of the two dozens of precandidates on the primaries attended the convention, the VP slot that supposedly offers a great opportunity to heal internal divisions was not filled with any of them, and the Republican Governor of the Ohio, the state where this is happening also is also absent.
With all respect only a blind person can't see the dramatic difference with respect to previous conventions, yesterday there was even a rebellion of delegates trying to push a revote to stop the nomination of Trump.

I know in Kansas that if a family applies for benefits on behalf of its children (anchor babies), it receives full support even if the parent or parents are working basically full-time and making good money under the table. They are not allowed to ask about that or consider it since the parents are not legal. So the family can pull in full range benefits for the kids AND whatever extra cash the parents are making, and since the parents are making it illegally in many cases, they aren't also being taxed.

Lets be open and frank, if the border is closed in the way D. Trump has many times menaced, by building a sort of Chinese wall in between the two countries, this is going to impact negatively not only the Mexicans but also the Americans.
There are hundreds of thousands of Americans getting better jobs in Mexico and in other Latin American countries than anything they could found here. Many have escaped from unemployment or from starvation salaries to honorable positions as english teachers, bilingual education managers, human relations bilingual staff, and translators, without passing for all the migratory restrictions that right now exist in America for immigrants.
About two million Americans that are retired live in standards of high social class or upper middle class in Latin America and half of them in Mexico, with very modest pensions that here might give them a poor status.

Lincoln loved Immigrants.
Especially the Irish.
Most of the men could be coaxed right in to the army since none had jobs.
Grant made wonderful use of them as lead catchers on his road to Richmond.
Trump isn't against immigrants.
He's against not enforcing immigration laws.
Big difference and nothing racist about it.
