Trump Adds More Uncertainty to His Immigration Policy
Donald Trump added another around of uncertainty to his immigration policy Monday, telling reporters he was reconsidering whether undocumented immigrants must “return home” before seeking legal status in the United States.

“We’re going to make that decision into the future,” Mr. Trump said while traveling with reporters in Ohio, potentially reversing a position he staked out firmly five days ago.
Speaking aboard his private plane, Mr. Trump reinforced his plan to focus deporting criminal immigrants who are in the country illegally. Asked what he thought about fellow Republicans who supported legal status for undocumented immigrants who have long lived in the country without committing a crime, Mr. Trump said, “Good question. I’m glad you asked it.” Then he added, “That decision will be made.”
Mr. Trump’s comments, which effectively leave the door open to the plan for legal status pushed by a number of prominent Republicans, amounted to another abrupt change for him on his signature policy. Mr. Trump has also backed away from his promise to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country, and has softened his call for a temporary ban of all Muslim immigration.Read the rest of the story HERE.
