Donald Trump’s immigration stance dividing GOP in Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is drawing larger crowds as he continues to criticize immigration policies in stark language that has revealed a deep divide between immigration hawks and moderates who are trying to avoid alienating Hispanic voters.

On Saturday, Trump is scheduled to campaign in Nevada and then in Arizona, a hub of immigrant and drug smuggling where Trump has developed a large following. A rally in Phoenix had been planned at a posh resort that could handle about 1,000 guests, but organizers moved it to the city’s convention center.
