Donald Trump hit to the presidential scene fast by taking a hard stance on illegal immigration.

But he's diverged from that position often enough, lately, that it's left Democrats AND Republicans wondering where exactly Trump stands.

At first, he called for a "deportation force" to remove the nation's some 11 million undocumented immigrants.

Last week, however, he said there might be a "softening" of his position.

And on Wednesday, he plans to make a major speech on illegal immigration. 

Take Two chats with Republican strategist Mike Madrid about who he's appealing to with these shifts, and if he's keeping ahold of the people who first made him popular.
