“We have to be very, very strong when people come in illegally,” Trump said. “We have a lot of people that want to come in through the legal process, and it’s not fair canada goose jacket black friday sale uk for them. We’re working with a lot of people in the Hispanic community to try and come up with an answer.

“No, I’m not flip flopping. We want to come up with a really fair but firm answer. That’s it has to be very firm. But we want to come up with something fair.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R Ala.), meanwhile,saidTrump is “wrestling” with how to handle illegal immigrants already in the United States.

“What I’m certain about is that he did not make a firm commitment yesterday, or the meeting the other day, about what he will do with that,” Sessions said on CBS News when asked whether Trump still supportsdeporting all 11 million. “But he did listen, and canada goose hat uk he’s talking canada goose outlet new york city about it.”

Trump’s campaign is playing downthe reports and says nothing has really changed. But it clearly has. Even in equivocating and saying it’s “to be determined,” thecampaign isstriking a far different tone than Trump has before. Conway was twice given the chance to reiterate that Trump will deport all illegal immigrants, and she didn’t.

And, to be clear, that has beenTrump’s position. Anything else would present a major change from a guy whose primary victory and 2016 campaign writ large have beendefined by his hard line immigration stance. It has beenhas signature proposal, complete with a Mexico funded border wall.
