Trump Campaign Hits Back at Report of Border Policy Reversal
Donald Trump absolutely has not changed his mind on illegal immigration, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said on "Fox and Friends Weekend" today.
Sessions, a close advisor to Trump, refuted a BuzzFeed article that claimed the Republican presidential nominee is interested in figuring out a “humane and efficient” way to deal with immigrants in the country illegally.
Sessions said that Trump indeed had a great discussion with his newly announced Hispanic advisory council, but he remains committed to establishing a "lawful system of immigration."
When Tucker Carlson asked if Trump is still committed to the forced deportation of the approximately 12 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S., Sessions said that's a possibility, but he's not sure if it's the best solution.
"We have to first end all the lawlessness," Sessions said. "First and foremost, an immigration system should protect and serve the interests of the American people."
"We've got politicians - particularly Democratic leaders and Hillary Clinton - that want to give immediate amnesty to everybody, allow them access to every benefit in America. And then they don't want to do the things necessary to gain control of immigration."
Watch more above.
