WASHINGTON, August 26, 2016 – Donald Trump has strongly voiced his concern of illegal immigrants but is now appearing to be softening his tone on immigration policy. Sparking this sudden change is Trump’s meeting with a large group of Hispanic supporters.
The candidate is not saying he will halt efforts to remove illegal immigrants instead he is now saying that he recognizes that the U.S. has already strong laws in place with which to approach the issue of deporting illegal immigrants and that he will abide by those laws.
He holds tight to his message that illegal aliens that have committed a crime must be the first to be deported.
According to Free Advice Legal:
“Once an illegal immigrant is arrested, the jail that booked them or law enforcement agency that effected the arrest will report the booking or arrest to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE is a law enforcement agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). “
An illegal alien has some protections under our criminal statutes, however “illegal immigrants have less protections in an immigration case than in a criminal case. Immigration is a special area of federal civil law. According to the U.S. Constitution, an individual has no right to an attorney in a civil case.” (Free Advice Legal)
Trump’s sudden departure from his mass deportation comes after his campaign pivots in a new positive message, however he is not waffling on the fact that every person that lives in the U.S. illegally must go through the proper steps to become tax paying Americans. He is saying that he will follow U.S. laws and actions will be “humane” which does soften his campaign rhetoric that had his followers cheering a mass exit of illegal alien
Donald Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that he would put America’s undocumented immigrants into two groups: “bad ones” and “everybody else.” Trump would kick out the bad ones as soon as Trump becomes president.
Everybody else would go through the same legal process as defined by our current Federal laws.
Ann Coulter, political pundit and author of the recently released “In Trump We Trust”, appeared on The Sean Hannity Show discussing Trump’s immigration policy and his outreach to black and Hispanic communities:
Trump’s changed immigration policy comes after his sudden campaign shakeup. The new campaign is attempting to codify Trump’s message, while allowing him to fall back to his original plan of being himself.
Republican pollsters say that Trump’s sudden change would not improve relations with the Hispanic voters.
“The fact of the matter is he can’t unring the bell,” said Javier Palomarez. “These are the acts of a desperate candidate who knows he is going to lose.”
While Trump may be attempting to tone down his message, the Clinton campaign is rehashing his extreme policy. “We can’t afford to be tricked by Trump,” Tim Kaine, V.P. nominee says. “He’s saying that he’ll try to deport people in a humane way — whatever that means. It’s just wrong.”
