    Aug 26, 2016 2:36 AM GMT the beginning, Donald Trump said Mexicans who come here are rapists, criminals and people bringing drugs and problems.

    Now he's saying he'll work with immigrants not here legally, but the bad ones are going to be thrown out.

    Does that mean he has flip-flopped? To several Latino political and immigration experts, it's more of the same....

    ..."To criticize his policy shifts is to take his policies serious as policies, but they were never serious with respect to immigration," Haney Lopez said. "They served as markers for racial resentment."

    Lopez said Trump was never going to ban all Muslims , deport all immigrants, build a border wall on the U.S.-Mexican border or going to deport 11 million people. They were impossible as policies and illegal as law, he said.

    "These supposed policy statements were symbols of animosity towards Mexicans and Muslims," he said....

    JerseyAthletic said"Latino experts" LOL

    Seems the headline refers to this guy:

    said Ian Haney Lopez, a law professor at University of California, Berkeley and author of "Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism & Wrecked the Middle Class."

    whose ethnicity + credentials make him a Latino expert in law

    & this guy

    Diego von Vacano, an associate professor in Texas A&M's political science department, said

    an expert in political science

    & these two...

    Even though he plans to vote for Trump, Rafael Flores, a Republican strategist in New York, agreed that few Latinos would be convinced that Trump has undergone a change of heart
    said Angie Kelley, executive director of the Center for American Progress Fund

    who might not be experts by schooling--I don't know their training--but seem experienced as what might at least be considered paraprofessionals.

    Just to google one of them....’s work focuses on politics, progressive policy, immigration and integration policy, media, Latino issues, and race and ethnicity.

    Kelley is a well-known authority on the policy and politics of immigration....

    Before joining American Progress, Kelley served as director of the Immigration Policy Center, a research and rapid-response organization that provides policymakers, academics, the media, and the general public with access to accurate information about the effects of immigration on the U.S. economy and society...

    Kelley, the daughter of South American immigrants, began her career as an attorney for a legal services agency in Washington, D.C., representing low-income immigrants on immigration and family matters.

    So, um, yeah, that would make her a Latino expert. Even if you find that funny.
