WTF!? Trump now seeking to legalize undocumented immigrants?

What on earth is going on? This while the jackboots of ICE are marching into people's homes, breaking up families and dragging off moms who've done nothing more than falsify a SSN so they could work.

President Trump, signaling a potential major shift in policy, told news anchors on Tuesday that he is open to a broad immigration overhaul that would grant legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants who have not committed serious crimes.

“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. The people requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the private meeting. [www.nytimes.com]



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Hey, credit where credit is due.

If only this were coming from a stable, rational person, I'd feel so much better....

The house will never go for it.

I'm relieved to hear that he has the ability to change his mind.

He didn't say it in the speech, from what I understand.

Is he now endorsing the Gang of 8 now? He bashed Rubio in the primary for this participation in the Gang of 8 Ryan boys.

What will his minions say about this? any blowback?

No blowback. They adore him, he can do no wrong.

Well, it's not that so much, I think - it's just that a lot of the Right's positions are not core beliefs, and can thus be changed at will. The core belief of all conservatives, as far as I can tell, is "my taxes should be lower"; that will be addressed later. If Trump ever tried to change that, the pitchforks would come out.

This immigrant thing is like waving the rainbow flag. He throws out some lip service, now the pro-immigration types think may be they can work with him, and it erodes his opposition. He has no real plan to implement this latest brain fart and won't because Shadow President Bannon is not interested in it.

Last night's entire speech is a good example of what you are saying.
