No legal status for undocumented immigrants

29 August 2016

AUSTIN, Texas U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump held out the possibility on Tuesday of a softening of his hardline position on illegal immigration, a move that could help move him to the political center but hurt him with his most ardent supporters.

Trump's new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, signalled over the weekend that the candidate has been rethinking his approach.

He went after MSNBC's "Morning Joe", tweeting that the show is "unwatchable!" and said its host, Mika Brzezinski, "is off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!"

"I can't discuss it", Conway said.

Just under a quarter said race relations are staying about the same and only 10 per cent said they think race relations are getting better. His new position sounded a lot like the stances of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, whom Trump once accused of being far too weak on immigration.

Trump said that on his first day in office, he would authorise law enforcement to actively deport "bad dudes", such as those who have committed crimes, which he said numbered "probably millions", CNN reported.

"There is a very good chance the answer could be yes", Trump said when asked if he would deport those who have lived here peacefully but without papers.

The billionaire candidate, who has slid precipitously in polls since last month's Republican convention, told the group of Hispanic conservatives that his plan would grant undocumented immigrants legal status "that wouldn't be citizenship but would allow them to be here without fear of deportation", Monty added. After Republicans won the Senate in 2014 and the prospect of an immigration overhaul grew dimmer, Obama acted again to protect up to 4 million parents of US citizens or permanent residents and let them work legally.

But following the Orlando night club shooting in June, Trump appeared to introduce a new standard: "When I am elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we fully understand how to end these threats", he said.

Trump denied in an interview Monday morning on Fox News that he was "flip-flopping" on the issue of illegal immigration. Her campaign says deportations would focus on immigrants "who pose a violent threat to public safety". "He tells people what he thinks they want to hear". "They know who they are and they're going to be gone like so fast your head will spin ... okay ... so that's easy, right?"

"It's not "amnesty.' It's 'comprehensive immigration reform"!"

"Donald Trump has been disciplined and mature".

"These are immigration experts", Conway said. "That's one of the things I enjoy about my husband is that he enjoys so many things and balloons is one of them".
