Donald Trump launched his campaign on a promise to be very, very tough on illegal immigration - and immigrants. He called Mexican immigrants ‘‘rapists’’ and ‘‘criminals.’’ He would later promise to deport every single one of them - even approvingly referencing a controversial 1950s mass-deportation program known as ‘‘Operation Wetback.’’ He has in recent weeks prominently featured victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal immigrants.
But according to reports and the suggestions of his top advisers on Sunday, it sounds as if he’s considering seriously changing his tune - in what would amount to a stunning flip-flop.
