A Colorado perspective on immigration

Donald Trump will give a major speech on his immigration plan Wednesday night, where he's expected to moderate some of his early, hard-line proposals.

Yet Trump's point-person for Hispanic outreach in Colorado, business leader Jerry Natividad, issued a statement saying Trump's message has never wavered or softened.

That's gonna make some people wanna shout.

Throw their hands up and shout.

Throw their head back and shout.

I want you to know.

Trump originally proposed deporting all 11 million people in this country illegally.

A little bit softer now.

His campaign now says no deportation force. Trump originally said he'd end birthright citizenship.

A little bit softer now.

His campaign now says that's a discussion for a different day. Trump said no path to ciritizenship.

A little bit softer now.

He actually said, "There certainly could be a softening."

Now, wait a minute.

Let's get to the bottom of this - with the Trump's Colorado Hispanic coalition co-chair Jerry Natividad.

Also on Wednesday, we discussed if  one of Colorado's most powerful Democrats - Majority Leader of the Colorado House Crisanta Duran - sees herself as a representative of the legal citizens in her district. Or does she represent those living in her district - and this country - illegally? She supports Hillary Clinton, who seems to rarely have to discuss, or defend, her plan to secure the border.

Duran says, "The immigrants who are here are Americans for all intents and purposes."
