Trump On Immigration

Trump On Immigration
On Wednesday, Chinese clothing importer and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump talked about immigration in Mexico and Arizona (aka Joe Arpaio‘s playpen). Mr. Trump’s immigration policy has not not changed; he is just saying different words. He may have tried out some of those new words on Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, but they dispute what was said during their closed-door meeting.

But there’s no mistaking what Donald Trump said in Phoenix. His Deportation Force would deport millions of people who have lived in the U.S. for years, breaking up families, destroying small businesses and agriculture, and hobbling the manufacturing and construction industries.

Most of the GOP’s hastily assembled “Hispanic Advisory Council for Trump” have since self-deported from the campaign, and RNC Hispanic media relations chief Ruth Guerra has resigned.

At the Phoenix rally, Rudy Giuliani and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions sported “Make Mexico Great Again Also” baseball caps.
