Did Trump Change His Immigration Policies?

For three weeks the mainstream media was talking about a Donald Trump pivot on illegal immigration. First they said he was going to grant amnesty to the 11-12 million illegal immigrants in the United States, then they said there would be no physical wall—only a virtual wall. Even though the Trump spokespeople kept saying over and over he’s not making changes to his plan, it seemed as if every day there was a new report claiming the Republican was dropping an element of his immigration plan. But most of what people anticipated as a flip-flop was mostly a change in tone, very little change in policy.

Last week Joe Scarborough of MSNBC started calling the candidate “Amnesty Don,” based on some of the rumors. Trump however, put an end to that speculation:

We will break the cycle of amnesty and illegal immigration. There will be no amnesty.
