Trump's son says his father "does not soften" its immigration policy

The son of Donald Trump said Tuesday that his father "did not soften" its policy on immigration, on the eve of a speech in which the Republican candidate will attempt to dispel the confusion around one of the pillars of his presidential campaign.


"He was not softened on anything," he said Donald Trump Jr. told CNN when asked about what his father recently told a forum of voters in Texas (south) on what to do about the 11 million illegal immigrants They are living in the United States.

Asked whether the Republican candidate still thinks deporting them, Trump Jr. said that was "right", but offered a more moderate tone regarding the controversial issue.

"It must start with baby steps," he added, noting that "first and foremost is to get rid of criminals" and eliminate cities "sanctuary" (cities who choose not to cooperate with the requirements of the immigration authorities, which are federal) .

"And you have it secure the border," he said.

Trump property promise during the campaign has been to build a giant wall along the border with Mexico, and deport all illegal immigrants living in the country.

Trump on Tuesday reiterated that being president build the wall. "From the first day I was going to build a big wall on the southern border, and more. Stop illegal immigration, "he said on Twitter, advertising the offer speech Wednesday in Phoenix, in the state of Arizona, which borders Mexico.

But lately, Trump has distanced itself from old promises as the creation and a "force deportation" to expel millions.

A year ago, he promised immigration reform that would end the automatic US citizenship for those born in the United States, criticizing that constitutional law is used by undocumented immigrants for their children to get the social benefits of an American migrants.

But in the last week, the magnate seemed less forceful, even suggesting that it could work with undocumented immigrants who have not committed crimes and pay taxes.

"Certainly there may be a softening because we are not looking to hurt people," he told a forum on Fox News last week.

The next day he resumed a harder tone, insisting that there will be "no path to legalization" for immigrants living illegally in the United States, even those who have not committed crimes.
