donald trump-reu-LUS Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tweeted on Sunday night that he would make a major speech on illegal immigration in Arizona on Wednesday.

The announcement came a day after Trump said he would crack down on illegal immigrants who overstay their visas, as he sought to clarify his views on how to overhaul the US immigration system. Last week, Trump had said he was “softening” on his plan to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants.

That stance had aroused criticism from conservatives who wanted him to stand fast after he won the Republican presidential nomination in large part with a hard-line position that called for building a wall along the US border with Mexico.

“I will be making a major speech on ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION on Wednesday in the GREAT State of Arizona. Big crowds, looking for a larger venue,” Trump, who had postponed an immigration speech originally planned for last Thursday in Denver, said in his tweet on Sunday.

In another tweet on Sunday night, Trump said both he and Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival for the Nov. 8 election, should release detailed medical records. “I have no problem in doing so! Hillary?”

In his speech on Saturday in Iowa, Trump said he would seek to institute a tracking system to ensure illegal immigrants who overstay their visas are quickly removed, and would propose an e-verify system to prevent undocumented residents from gaining access to welfare and other benefits.

“If we don’t enforce visa expiration dates, then we have an open border – it’s as simple as that,” he said.

Trump said his first priority on taking office next January would be the immediate deportation of thousands of undocumented immigrants who remain in the United States despite having committed crimes.

“These international gangs and cartels will be a thing of the past,” he said. “Their reign of terror will be over. In this task, we will always err on the side of protecting the American people – we will use immigration law to prevent crimes, and will not wait until some innocent American has been harmed or killed before taking action.”

Trump did not explain how his plan would affect undocumented residents who have been in the United States for decades and obeyed US laws.

    Says a pal of mine: Anthony Marr with Melecio Vega.On March 20, 2016 (feels like ages ago), Shannon Wright and I attended the Bernie Sanders rally in Seattle. There were two long line-ups, with 11,000 people each. The queues began to be formed around 10 a.m, and did not get through the two check-points into the stadium until easily 6 p.m.Now an apparently ridiculous question: What if the line-up were not 11,000, but 11,000,000? Come on, you say, what kind of a line-up would be that long? First, let me determine exactly how long. At 1 meter (3.3 ft) per person single file, it would stretch 11,000 km = 7000 miles, about twice the distance between NY and LA.You guessed it. I'm talking about Donald Trump's idea to deport 11,000,000 people through the few US/Mexico border check-points. How long do you think it will take? I'm talking about the w process of1. determining whom to deport2. processing paperwork,3. hauling children out of school,4. closure of thousands of small businesses,5. hundreds of thousands of houses and vehicles for , and mive cash withdrawals from banks,6. rounding up the deportees,7. holding them in detention facilities (recall the FEMA stadium during and after Katrina) - how many such facilities?8. logistics - water, food, sanitation, medical, cots, blankets...9. dealing with tens of thousands of lawsuits,10. dealing with Mexico,11. arranging m transportation12. conducting m transport 13. dealing with downturns in real estate and automobile value, due to the sudden flooding of the market.13. dealing with the sudden vacuum in low level labor beneath the station of most white Americans,14. closing of thousands of US companies employing such labor,15. the "Deportation Force" - how many operatives, how much equipment, at what budget, in what time frame...16. How much $$$$$$$$$$$$ from beginning to end and where will it come from?17. How much material and energy will this suck out of the already heavily deplo US military?18. How much judicial resource will be consumed in reprocessing those millions of re-entry applications of those deportees wanting to get back in?19. How would the US deal with the resultant overwhelming and paralysis of the entire US judicial system?20. What will happen to those hundreds of thousands of small businesses dependent on a Hispanic clientele...?21. What about the millions of cats and dogs left behind?Etc, etc...I bet that none of these points occurred, at least in a systematic way, to Donald Trump when he first announced his skin-deep plan to DEPORT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE 11 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. No wriggle room there, or should I say no SOFTENING room. Along with the physical WALL, which appeals to the non-abstract "minds" of some of his followers, to uproot and deport 11 million people, for whom they have zero compion, has been his strongest BIGOT-MAGNET. His supposed 110 million followers are after the blood of the 11 million, no child spared, no mercy for all! This is a no-compromise, no-prisoners proposition. Relent on it, and they will abandon him in droves (e.g. Ann coulter). He's known it all along; it's just that now, the time of reckoning has come. I can't say I'm impressed by the media's not having forced his hand on these questions sooner, months sooner.But I bet these questions are finally bouncing off the walls of his campaign HQ since Bannon and Conway took over just a couple of weeks ago, and I bet they've had to postpone announcements on the issue, perhaps for weeks, simply because they can't figure out "what the " to say.
