The Trump campaign has released a statement that uses the word “consistent” in reference to Trump’s immigration proposals. It does not shed light on Trump’s Mexico trip, that we can tell. It may be a preview of what we’ll hear tonight in Phoenix. Here it is in full:

Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump has been consistent in his calls to end illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border. He is the only candidate in this race who will stop illegal immigration, secure our border, end sanctuary cities, enforce our existing laws and stop American employers from hiring illegal workers. These reforms will not only put an end to our illegal immigration epidemic — they will promote safe communities and good-paying jobs that will make America great again.” – Tana Goertz, Senior Advisor to the Trump-Pence Campaign
