After a week of confusing statements about his immigration policy, Donald Trump on Sunday evening said that he will deliver a speech about immigration on Wednesday in Arizona.

The Trump campaign had cancelled an immigration speech planned for last week, and Trump proceeded to offer comments on deportation that differed from his stance throughout the primary. He appeared open to not deporting all 11 million undocumented immigrants from the United States. He said he might be “softening” his policy, before later insisting that he was “hardening” his stance on deportation.

On Saturday, Trump focused on his plan for “criminal illegal immigrants,” who he said he would deport “within one hour” of taking office.
