Trump Softens Immigration Stance, Among Others

The President-Elect has scaled back past proposals to deport the over 11 million undocumented immigrants in the US.

As he nears the beginning of his first term in office, President-Elect Trump has now made calls to only deport the 2-3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records, while considering the status of law abiding undocumented immigrants at a later date. This falls in line with a recent pattern of Trump softening more extreme elements of promised policy initiatives.
