Donald Trump says many of the "gang members" in Chicago, Ferguson, and Baltimore are undocumented immigrants.

"You know, a lot of the gangs that you see -- this doesn't hopefully pertain to you guys so much -- when you look at Baltimore, when you look at Chicago, and Ferguson a lot of these areas," Trump said on FM Talk 1065AM on Thursday. "You know, a lot of these gang members are illegal immigrants. They're gonna be gone. We're gonna get them out so fast, out of this country. So fast."

Trump was appearing to discuss his recent immigration plan ahead of an appearance Friday at Ladd Peebles Stadium, which has a maximum capacity of 50,000.
