Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Republican nominee who’s now telling us he’s going to allow certain illegal immigrants to stay in the country.
“There’s no amnesty, as such, there’s no amnesty, but we work with them… Now, everybody agrees we get the bad ones out. But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject, and I’ve had very strong people come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they’ve said, ‘Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who’s been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it’s so tough, Mr. Trump,’ I have it all the time! It’s a very, very hard thing.”
This is the guy who scoffed at all of his primary rivals when they said that deporting 11 million people would be “so tough.”
Hey, immigration hawks, tell me you expected Donald Trump to be polling audiences in late August about whether it was worth it to try deporting illegal immigrants who have been here for 20 years.Read the resr of Jim Geraghty's op-ed HERE.
