Trump stops in Phoenix, talks of immigration plan


Not only did Pena Nieto not demand that Donald Trump apologize for calling Mexican migrants rapists and criminals, but he stood silently by in their joint press conference while the Republican candidate repeated his promise to build a border wall between the countries.

Trump's wild Wednesday was a landmark moment in the presidential campaign - he made a hastily arranged visit to see Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and then delivered a fiery immigration speech in Phoenix.

Although he talked about mass deportation, Trump has yet to explain how exactly he plans to do it. "And they're great people and great leaders but they're going to pay for the wall", said Trump.

"I hear Churchill had a nice turn of phrase, but Trump's immigration speech is the most magnificent speech ever given", tweeted conservative author Ann Coulter after it was over.

Heading into Wednesday's speech, the big question was whether Trump would continue "softening" on his core issue, making him a hypocrite, or revert back to his typical demagoguery, making him wrong and far outside the mainstream. Trump argued that we as a nation have the prerogative to choose people with desirable talents and compatible beliefs but that, unfortunately, our immigration system is not structured that way.

After Trump left Mexico, Pena Nieto was at pains to stress how he had brought home to the NY businessman the offence his comments have caused, calling his proposals a threat to the country.

Hours later, Pena Nieto said in a tweet that he had told Trump clearly in their private meeting that Mexico would not pay.

Shortly after the speech ended, Jacob Monty, a member of Trump's recently formed Hispanic Advisory Council, announced his resignation from the group.

Bannon, now called the CEO of the Trump campaign, has been a fan of the hard-line approach on immigration as well as other issues.

He said that police and other law enforcement officers know who these people are and are prevented from arresting them.

He says, "we will stop apologizing for America".

Javier Urbano Reyes, a professor in the department of International Studies at the Iberoamerican University in Mexico City, said he thought Trump gained a little with the meeting but Mexico's president lost a lot.

If true, Kaine said, Trump "sort of folded under pressure".

"You got to respect people's ability to act according to their conscience", Kaine said. So it was unusual that he'd allow Trump to visit without any time to prepare, which could have deepened the impact of the meeting, said Andrew Selee, executive vice president of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. And of those who might try to live in the shadows, he said, "Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation".

"This is an insult and a betrayal", said artist Arturo Meade as he joined a protest against Wednesday's meeting in Mexico City.
