During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump managed to shock several times with his declaration on immigration, but lately, we couldn’t ignore the fact that his attitude towards this issue changed significantly, especially after making important changes in his campaign staff.
As expected, the media noticed this immediately and reported that Trump might as well forget about his plans of deporting illegal immigrants. However, the businessman hasn’t revealed an official point of view until now, but he will do it this week.
Will Trump maintain the same stance?
According to CNN, during an event organized this Sunday, Donald Trump revealed that he plans to hold a “major speech” on immigration this Wednesday, in Arizona.
“I will be making a major speech on ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION on Wednesday in the GREAT State of Arizona. Big crowds, looking for a larger venue,” he tweeted.
It’s needless to say that everybody is looking forward to see how Donald Trump is going to approach some of his most controversial plans – building the US-Mexico border wall, deportations of those who commit crimes and “extreme vetting” of new immigrants – after he seemed to have softened his stance on these issues.
Even more, his top allies, like VP nominee Mike Pence or campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, kept the situation unclear, not being able to reveal where Trump stands right now regarding immigration.
“He hasn’t changed his position on immigration. He’s changed the words that he is saying,” said spokeswoman Katrina Pierson for CNN.
A different approach could lead to losing voters
The Republican nominee’s speech on illegal immigration was initially scheduled for last week, but his campaign decided to postpone it, in order to work at its policy and pick the right language for delivering it.
During his primaries, one of the main topics Donald Trump was focusing on was his hardline stance on immigration, promising to deport all undocumented immigrants from the country. However, lately, he seemed to have backed away from it.
