Donald Trump went on Hannity on Tuesday to make a big announcement about his plan to deal with illegal immigrants.
Hannity asked Trump how he would deal with longtime people in the US illegally who have children. The GOP nominee said, “There could certainly be a softening because we’re not looking to hurt people. We want people — we have some great people in this country.”
He continued, “We have some great, great people in this country. But we’re going to follow the laws of this country and what people don’t realize — we have very, very strong laws.
“We want to follow the laws, you know, we have very strong laws in this country. And you know Bush, and even Obama, sends people back. Now, we can be more aggressive on that but we want to follow the laws,” he told Hannity. “If you start going around trying to make new laws in this country it’s a process that’s brutal. We want to follow the laws of the country, and if we follow the laws we can do what we have to do.”
The Republican nominee then said he “would come out with a decision very soon” about deportations.
Trump had been scheduled to outline his immigration policies on Thursday in Colorado, but that speech has since been postponed, likely until next week.
His latest comments at the town hall come as he may be moving away from one of his signature proposals during the Republican primary. During an interview Monday on “Fox & Friends,” Trump suggested he wanted a “fair, but firm” immigration policy.
During early days of the primaries, Trump vowed to use a “deportation force” to round up and deport millions of illegal immigrants.
Trump promised that victims of illegal immigrant crime have not died in vain.
