    Trump Admits Times Report, Says Status Of Illegals Is “Negotiable”:

    For months now, Donald Trump has spouted the same line on immigration, promising to build a border wall and deport people here illegally. Last night, he admitted he would not deport the 11 million people in the United States illegally. It was posturing....

    Trump appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News. Here’s the key transcript excerpt:
    “We had a board meeting [at the New York Times], it was off-the-record, suddenly they leak it, it’s all over the place,” Trump said.

    “They said it’s negotiable on the wall,” Hannity said in reference to Trump’s stance on Mexican immigration and his oft-stated promise to build a border wall.

    “By the way it is negotiable. Things are negotiable,” Trump said. “I’ll make the wall 2 feet shorter or something.”

    Trump was quick to add that the negotiation does not include nixing the idea altogether.

    “Building it? Not negotiable.”

    “Would it be negotiable about the 11 million?” Hannity pressed. “Maybe let some people stay if they register in a period of time?”

    “I would say this,” Trump added, “we will work out some system that’s fair, but we either have a country or we don’t. We need a border. We need a wall.”​

    Here’s Rubio at the CNN debate last week:

    Well, first of all, and before we do anything, I’ve been abundantly clear on this. When I’m president of the United States, before we do anything on immigration, we are going to secure the border. And, that’s not just the physical border with Mexico, it’s Visa overstays. That’s 45 percent of the problem right there.

    It also has to do — that’s why we need e-verify, and entry-exit tracking system, and so-forth. And, until that happens, we’re not doing anything else. And then we’ll see what the American people are willing to support.​

    Those are exactly the same positions – build the wall, then figure out what to do with the people already here. There is literally no daylight between the Rubio and Trump positions on immigration.

    What I took from that interview was everybody is going out, but that it is negotiable that some of those could come back in. I think Rubio is against the "going out" part.

    He hired some pros who told him to tone down the rhetoric, and maybe even pander to brown people.

    i thought everyone knew this


    i didnt think he would shift positions/rhetoric until after the primaries though.
    this tells me he knows he won, so hes starting to transition for the general election (as hillary already is)

    How can anyone be surprised he's flip flopping when the guy was a far left liberal not that long ago?

    He's not waiting until he's the nominee before he starts drifting to the left.

    How far left will he go, I wonder?

    As long as they don't expand H-1B visas.

    Those are the guys that I worry about.

    They are taking all the high skilled jobs.

    I heard someone smart say a long time back that if the "consultants" ever got to him, that would be the only way he could lose.

    I'm obviously not a Trump supporter but for the guys on the board that are, doesn't it bug you that his cardinal promise from the outset is now 'negotiable'?

    Just curious.

    They aren't taking anything. The greedy employers are giving them away by fraud.
