Before anyone gets too excited about this…
President Trump, signaling a potential major shift in policy ahead of his first address to Congress, told television 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.
…recall how Trump claimed he was “softening” his immigration stance in August 2016. The administration’s modus operandi is generating chaos and confusion with often contradictory claims. The president’s assertion re: his immigration policy is about as believable as his concern about the country’s rising tide of antisemitic crimes…
Scary, alarming, disheartening, unprecedented. Those are just a few of the adjectives used to describe the recent widespread spate of bomb threats that have targeted Jewish community centers and schools in 33 states in the United States and two provinces in Canada. The threats have reached such a crescendo that President Donald Trump will use his speech to Congress on Tuesday night to address the issue, an administration official told CNN.
President Trump appeared to suggest Tuesday that the wave of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the U.S. could be coming from within the Jewish community itself, according to a Pennsylvania state lawmaker present for the comments.
