A judge ordered the State Department on Monday to review a group of 14,900 recently discovered e-mails that the F.B.I. found when investigating Hilary Clinton’s private e-mail server while she served as Secretary of State and set a deadline by September 22, 2016 to complete the full review and determine which ones contained confidential information.
Donald Trump will be in Austin, Texas on Tuesday for a rally to gain more support in the Lone star state which has a sizeable Hispanic population.
Trump is lagging behind Clinton nationally in the polls with the Hispanic vote amid past comments he has made labeling Mexican illegal immigrants as “rapists and criminals” and pledging to build a border wall funded by Mexico.
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” Trump said on the campaign trail last year after he announced his candidacy.
Trump has decided to delay a major immigration speech until Thursday in Colorado which comes after his campaign has faced some new questioning over his hardline immigration policy including the deportation of 11 million illegal immigrants and ending birthright citizenship which has constitutional protection.
On Sunday Trump’s new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said that it’s still undecided whether Trump will continue with his policy of forced deportations of an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants still living in the U.S.
Trump insisted on Monday that he wasn’t “flip-flopping” over his immigration views when questioned about the issue on Monday by Fox News.
Speaking to Fox’s Megyn Kelly during the Kelly File on Monday evening, Trump’s new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway clarified Trump’s immigration views and said that immigration is a very “complex issue” when commenting about the reason the Republican presidential nominee was delaying his scheduled immigration speech until Thursday.
“To get the solutions right, to come out with your specific plan, should not be rushed” Conway said.
Concerning Trump’s controversial deportation policy that includes a “deportation force”, Conway carefully repeated what Trump had previously said during his Republican convention speech about wanting to enforce the border, immigration laws, and deport those “who have committed crimes.”
When questioned specifically by host Megyn Kelly about whether Donald Trump still supports a “deportation force” to deport the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S., Conway said that “he wants to apply the law” and “he wants to do it humanely, fairly, and effectively.”
