Trump on His Supposed Immigration Change

"The first thing we are going to do, if and when I win, is we're going to get rid of all of the bad ones."

Donald Trump isn't ready to say that he is going to change his position on the mass deportation of illegal immigrants, but he is saying that he will work within existing laws. Reports have been running rampant since a meeting at Trump Tower in New York over the weekend with a group of Hispanic advisors that Trump is getting set to change his position on dealing with illegals.

Appearing on The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News on Monday, Trump said that is not the case, but he made it clear his position is changing.

"We're going to obey the existing laws," Trump said. "The existing laws are very strong."

"The first thing we are going to do," he continued, "if and when I win, is we're going to get rid of all of the bad ones. We've got gang members, we have killers, we have got a lot of bad people that have to get out of this country."

"As far as everybody else, we are going to go through the process," Trump said.

Trump said that both President Obama and President Bush did deport many people. Trump said the difference between their efforts and his is that under a Trump administration the deportations would be done with a bit more energy.
