Donald Trump challenged Hillary Clinton Monday to spell out why she supports an immigration policy that could increase the levels of anti-gay sentiment in the United States.

Mr. Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, has panned Mrs. Clinton’s support of refugee relocation efforts in the United States and took his criticism a step forward by arguing that her immigration stance threatens gay men and lesbian women.

“Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists to our country who suppress women, gays and anyone who doesn’t share their views,” Mr. Trump said. “She can’t have it both ways. She can’t claim to be supportive of these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming in who want to oppress them.”

Mr. Trump pledged during a speech at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire to block immigrants from countries that have served as safe havens for terrorists from entering the United States.

“The burden is on Hillary Clinton to tell us why we should admit anyone into our country who supports violence of any kind against gay and lesbian Americans,” Mr. Trump said.
