Suddenly unsure on immigration, Trump trying to clarify his position

The poll found that 76 percent of Americans overall think that immigrants here illegally are as hardworking and honest as USA citizens, while 67 percent say they are no more likely than citizens to commit serious crimes.

Unlike George W. Bush, Mitt Romney and John McCain, his disapproval ratings among minority voter are sky-high. Barack Obama's health-care ambitions were.

The events have drawn large crowds of both supporters and protesters. This year, Pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA has also confirmed it will go dark.

No one seems to know what Donald Trump's position on immigration is anymore. During the GOP primaries, he was a hard core proponent of building a wall along the nation's southern border and deporting all 11 million people who have entered the country illegally by whatever means necessary.


Energy is better spent asking the same question about Clinton's opponent, a man whose history you don't have to comb exhaustively for his view of what scratching one's back should render.

FBI to release Clinton email report: The FBI expects to publicly release as soon as Wednesday the report the bureau sent to the Justice Department in July recommending no charges in Clinton's email server investigation, reports CNN. "That's always been his agenda", Becerra said.

(He based this on an exotic and tendentious reading of the 14th Amendment that would, in Trump's view, negate claims to birthright citizenship.) That was the sort of hardline posturing that endeared him to the Republican primary electorate and helped him sink candidates like Sen. That's what politicians do in this country, that's what Trump is trying to do right now.

He's going to build a great, great wall - yuge even - to make America great again and he's going to humanely deport the estimated 11 million people who are here illegally. The FBI issued a nationwide alert Tuesday regarding the potential hacking of state election offices after breaches in IL and Arizona. "Just imagine if Russian Federation were to engage in a cyberattack to destabilize the American electoral process, as it has done with other nations".


In the end, Limbaugh told Monday's caller that it didn't matter because Trump supporters are "gonna stick with him no matter what". On a Tuesday call with reporters, Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-Calif., said "no matter what Trump happened to say, into the future, no matter how he plays with his words or who he tries to surround himself with, his one consistent proposal throughout this campaign has been his promise to forcibly remove" immigrants.

Pence dismisses Clinton health concerns: Mike Pence dismissed concerns Tuesday about Clinton's health, reports Politico. Financial and immigration records included in a recent lawsuit filed by a fourth former Trump model show that she, too, worked for Trump's agency in the United States without a proper visa.

The New York Times editorial board says that it's an "ethical imperative" for Hillary Clinton and President Bill Clinton to stop accepting foreign and corporate donations to the Clinton Foundation now rather than waiting until after November's election. "I didn't have to do this with the money for the vets, but I made a decision to because I thought it was a good idea", Trump said this spring-as though charitable donations would normally only be something he had to do.
