Update, August 25, 2:00 pm.

Here are Trump's actual words on the August 24 Hannity show as reported in The Hill. that are reportedly causing so much anxiety to anti-immigrant hardliners such as Ann Coulter, Jeff Sessions, et al:



"No citizenship. Let me go a step further - they'll pay back taxes, they have to pay taxes, there's no amnesty, as such, there's no amnesty but we work with them...

But when I go through and I meet thousands and thousands of people on this subject and I've had very strong people on this subject come up to me, really great, great people come up to me, and they've said, 'Mr. Trump, I love you, but to take a person who's been here for 15 or 20 years and throw them and their family out, it's so tough, Mr. Trump'...

There could certainly be a softening [of immigration laws] because we're not looking to hurt people."

My original post appears below.

Donald Trump's anti-immigrant supporters may be starting to panic over his apparent backtracking on mass deportation of 12 million mainly Latino and Asian immigrants. Columnist Ann Coulter and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), neither of whom have exactly been noted for complimentary or welcoming remarks about Latino immigrants, are issuing dire warnings, and Sen. Jeff Sessions, (R. Ala.) is also said to be concerned, according to the latest reports in The Hill.

According to the same publication, even Trump's main primary opponent, Sen Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is disappointed in the Don for questioning the hard right line that every single unauthorized man woman and child in the US should be kicked out.

Who will be next to jump from Trump's ship - David Duke?

It is still not clear why Trump is now making suggestions, as he repotedly did on the Sean Hannity show (link also t o be provided) that unauthorized immigrants who have been in the US for many years, are otherwise law abiding, and who are willing to pay back taxes might be granted relief from deportation (link also will be provided).

What is causing this apparent about-face on Trump's part (if it is one)? Did someone tell him that Latinos are a rapidly growing part of America's population and, yes, they do vote? (Mitt Romney could have told him that.)

Anf if Trump is really changing his tune and selling out his white supremacist or other far right wing supporters, what might be next to go under Trump's bus?

The Wall? The Muslim ban? Changing the 14th amendment to render millions of US-born Latino and Asian children illegal and very possibly stateless at birth?

Oh, no, Donald! How could you? Say it ain't so!

Is Desperado Donald, who seems to be struggling in the polls, even despite Hillary Clinton's very latest alleged scandal of the week, finally launching his own immigration reality show?
