New York, NY, United States (4E) – Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was interviewed on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday and he explained how GOP nominee Donald Trump veers away from the thought of mass deportation but will still want millions of illegal immigrants to be deported.
Giuliani , who is now one of the top advisers of Trump, said that the Arizona speech of the real estate mogul was taken out of context and that the businessman really softened his stance on immigration. Giuliani shared, “Trump retreats from vow to deport all living in US illegally.”
Trump now proposes that only convicted criminals, who are also in the U.S. illegally, are to be deported along with the others who have overstayed their visas. This, however, is reflected to be around 2 million people so it still concerns the issue of mass deportation. It is believed that around 11 million are undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.
As for the remaining immigrants who are not criminals and who have not overstayed their visas, Giuliani said that the Trump administration, if he would win the November elections, would be open to many options to see how the problem on immigration will be solved. Giuliani also said during the CNN interview that Trump will not be separating families as it has been reported that parents of the children born here in the U.S. but came in the country illegally are to be deported back to their country.
Giuliani added that Trump “would find it very, very difficult to throw out a family that has been here for 15 years and they have three children, two of whom are citizens. That is not the kind of America he wants.”
The comments of Trump in the recent weeks regarding immigration have sparked Latin conservative groups to withdraw their support for the GOP nominee and even went as far as suggesting that people should not vote for Trump or Hillary Clinton.
