Revised Special Bulletin! - August 31, 10:15 am:

According to a Mother Jones story, at least four models have alleged that Donald Trump's company, Trump Model Management, brought them to the US to work illegally on tourist visas.

The same story alleges that Trump's company instructed at least one of the models to lie about her intended activities in the US at the time of immigration inspection, and that the company grossly exploited and took advantage of its models while they were in the US.

Some of the allegations against Trump's company mentioned in the story could constitute federal felonies, if proven (which they have not been).

If these allegations turn out to be accurate, what would that say about Trump's own credibility and qualifications to be America's Immigration Enforcer in Chief (or Hypocrite-in-Chief)?

What would they say about his character and fitness to be President of the United States?

My original post follows:

The great debate over mass deportation and other immigration policy issues is continuing, with Donald Trump leading the hard line faction against another presidential candidate who is pushing for a "softening" on deportation and who also happens to be named Donald Trump.

We may find out more about who will win this debate when one of the Donald Trumps (or maybe both of them) gives what has been heralded as a major speech on immigration in Arizona on August 31. See:

As the above article shows, Trump is in a hard position - he needs to reach out to Latinos and other minority voters, but he cannot afford to antagonize his influential major boosters such as columnist Ann Coulter or Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who will denounce him as an "open-borders" or "amnesty" sell out if he favors sparing even one Latino or other non-white "illegal" immigrant in America from deportation.

For whatever it is worth, here is my prediction. Trump will talk about America's wonderful immigration heritage, about how immigration has made this country great, about all the benefits that America is continuing to receive from immigration, and about how much he "loves" immigrants.

Half way through his speech, Coulter, Sessions and many others in his hard line base may throw fits and have to be carried out from wherever they may be watching.

But then, I predict, Trump will say that our immigration system is "broken", that it is "flooded" with "illegals", "criminals" and "terrorists", and that the only way to "fix" it is to kick out 11 million unauthorized immigrants and close our doors to most, if not all legal immigration, until "we" (i.e. Trump himself) figures out "what the h--- is going on."

That, he will conclude, is the only way we can finally have an immigration system that will work, and make America "truly" great again.

If my prediction is correct, Trump's pitch will be not unlike what some conservatives are now saying about Social Security - that it is going bankrupt, and the only way to "save" it is to privatize it or to cut benefits to the vanishing point.

In other words, Trump might offer America a vision of a wonderful, really fantastic, immigration system, an amazing one such as America has never had before and that only Donald Trump can create for us.

The only downside is that it might be one that is almost without immigrants.

Anyway, this is one observer's prediction about Trump's immigration speech. If I am right, you read it here first. If not, well there are always plenty of other things to read.
