Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is holding firm in his views to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, one of his main campaign planks in the November election against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

“I’m not flip-flopping,” Trump told Fox News a day after his new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said in another interview that Trump’s deportation plans were “to be determined.”

Trump, a New York real estate tycoon, said, “We want to come up with really fair, but firm answer” on immigration policies.

“We have to be very firm,” Trump said. “We have to be very, very strong when people come in illegally. We have a lot of people that want to come in through the legal process. It’s not fair to them.”

Trump said he is “working with a lot of people in the Hispanic community to come up with an answer.” READ MORE OF THIS STORY
