Trump meets with mother of slain New Jersey girl


  WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is meeting with a woman whose daughter was killed at the age of 20 by a group that included people who entered the country illegally.
   Shagla Hightower's daughter, Iofemi, was killed along with two friends in a 2007 attack in a Newark, New Jersey school yard.
   Shagla Hightower told Trump Friday that her daughters' killers "should have never been here" and praises Trump for giving her daughter recognition.
   She said, "I truly, truly thank you from the bottom of my heart."
   Trump has been featuring parents whose children have been killed by people living in the U.S. illegally at his events to try to underscore the risk they pose.
   He said Hightower's is "a horrible story, but it's a story a lot of people are going through."
   He added that his rival Hillary Clinton "has no clue and doesn't care."
