All politicians adjust their positions to win votes. That's what makes them politicians.
But now, on immigration, Donald Trump is attempting an adjustment that can only be described as huge on a Trumpian scale.
Remember that immigration was the signature issue of Trump's successful Republican primary campaign. He repeatedly portrayed illegal immigrants from Mexico as a criminal scourge on immigrant American communities.
He blasted the policy of President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Republican rivals as a weak-willed "disaster" tantamount to "open borders." He vowed to build a wall along the Mexican border and deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants now believed to be in the country.
