Dan Balz: Trump Claimed He Wanted To Do Immigration ‘Humanely,’ But ‘Language’ Of It ‘Suggests Something Else’

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” Washington Post Chief Correspondent Dan Balz stated that President Trump claimed he wanted to do immigration enforcement “humanely, and yet, the language and the forward motion of it suggests something else.”

Balz said, “On immigration, I mean, you have this — you know, this cleavage in the country over this immigration issue. For Trump supporters, if you talk to Trump supporters, one of the basic things is, keep the border secure, get the bad people out. I mean, the kind of language that Donald Trump uses resonates and connects directly. And yet, given the actions that they’ve taken, and kind of the uncertainty as to how this enforcement process is unfolding, because there’s still a lot of uncertainty about it, it’s created within the minority community, within the Latino community, great fear, great nervousness, a sense – you know, a sense that they’re coming to get us. And that’s a very volatile situation for Donald Trump, who has claimed he wants to do it humanely, and yet, the language and the forward motion of it suggests something else.”
