But Trump is not getting the cold shoulder from all Arizona Republicans. “Shame on them, because they should be looking for real solutions”. “And he says it in a sellable way”. “We need to precisely define the crimes that dictate who gets turned over for deportation”.
“Though they have broken the law to enter the United States, most of the Mexican people who’ve come here are good people who want to work hard and better their lives”.
“As an elected Republican official, I’m disappointed the county party would host a speaker that so damages the party’s image”, Flake said.
Trump has called Mexican immigrants “criminals” and “rapists” and has refused to apologize for what he said. In a field of 16 candidates, the poll finds Trump solidly in the lead with 15 percent of registered Republican voters naming him as their preferred nominee.
“The Republican Party will continue to lose presidential elections if it comes across as mean-spirited and unwelcoming toward people of color, Donald Trump tells Newsmax”. “”In one, GOP veteran Peter Wehner noted, “…the press are only too happy to highlight Mr. Trump’s stream of invective and outrageous utterances…”

Arizona’s top Republicans are snubbing Donald Trump as he prepares to bring his surging GOP presidential campaign and brash talk on immigration here.
Bush added a dose of humor. “By the process, I really like the Mexican mankind”.

Instead of ignoring or downplaying crimes committed by “unauthorized” immigrants, as the Pew Research Center now calls illegals, the mainstream media have finally started reporting some of the most frightful examples. “I’ll say the same thing again”, he said on the street in downtown Nashua between campaign stops.
It’s all about money and celebrity he said, blasting the use of national polling averages to determine the 10 candidates who will appear on the debate stage. “I wish they would give us some names, we would get them out immediately”.
Latino voters, of course, must be US citizens. “I’m very rich”, Trump said.
Gorman isn’t totally sold yet.
“I think that what he said he could have articulated better, but the general premise of what he said is true”, Rosenberg said.
