Trump Signals Major Shift on Immigrants
President Trump signaled a new openness on Tuesday to granting legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants who have not committed serious crimes and then called on Congress to work with him on overhauling health care, and rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure and military. In an address to a joint session of Congress in which he defended the tumultuous early days of his presidency, Mr. Trump said he was eager to reach across partisan lines and put aside “trivial fights” in the interest of helping ordinary Americans. But even as he outlined a bold agenda, he was raising new questions about his own policy priorities and how he planned to achieve them. In a conversation with news anchors just hours before he spoke, Mr. Trump broke from his tough immigration stance and said he was open to a the kind of broad overhaul that many Republicans and some of his core supporters have derided as “amnesty.” “The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is compromise on both sides,” the president told the TV anchors at the White House, according to people present during the discussion. Those present requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the private meeting.
Yet another day yet another broken promise. He complained about Obama's amnesty and here he is doing the same thing. Hypocrisy much Trump? Trump is just like Obama and Bush before him just another token to be used by corporate America as they see fit. It's funny to see how his followers keep saying how he's going to change things but after it is all done he is just another trained dog.

I wish we could take all braindead Liberals, Specially the Hollywood braindead liberals(makes them worse since they are rich and retarded, and they didn't keep their promises of leaving unfortunately) and all illegals to a deserted island, and set the entirety of that Island on fire, afterwards a huge amount of fireworks, because the world would have declared peace that we got rid of useless wretches, throw in ISIS for good measure and, bam, instant world peace, only I can dream.

Trump really doesn't need to force folks out of the country. Just dry up all the easy free stuff and charge employers a fine for every undocumented worker they hired. lol. No more tax break or this or that. Shut down the US department of Jobs and Travel Agency.

Now, it does no one any good to criticize the 180 he did on this one. That's not really a bad thing to have a change of heart.
But for all his flip-flops, if I were a Trump supporter, I'd be looking at his pattern of dropping stuff like a hot rock & 180'ing and noticing he has a stance on issues that is about as firm as a wet noodle & don't mirror what he sold me to get my vote.
I might feel a bit cheated if I were a supporter.
