"I'm in favour of people coming into this country legally. And you know what? They can have it anyway you want. You can call it visas, you can call it work permits, you can call it anything you want," Trump said participating in the third Republican presidential debate.
He was joined by Florida Senator Marco Rubio – despite their past difference on the issue in particular H-1B visas – who said that he supports legal migration that attracts the best of the talented people from across the world.
"I am all in favour of keeping these talented people here so they can go to work in Silicon Valley," Trump said strongly denying that he ever criticised Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who has been lobbying hard to expand H-1B work visa – which is highly popular among Indian tech professionals.
"As far as the visas are concerned, if we need people, it's fine. They have to come into this country legally. We have a country of borders. We have a country of laws. We have to obey the laws. It's fine if they come in, but they have to come in legally," he said.

Responding to allegations that the tech industry uses H-1B visa program to undercut hiring and wages for highly qualified Americans, Rubio said if a company gets caught doing that, they should never be able to use the program again.
Describing himself as unpredictable, Trump said it is this unpredictability of his that would help him successfully take on ISIS and other adversaries of the US.
