Hispanic backers move away from Trump after immigration speech

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump addresses the National Convention of the American Legion in CincinnatiBy Emily Stephenson and Amanda Becker WILMINGTON, Ohio/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some of Donald Trump’s Hispanic backers are distancing themselves from the Republican nominee after he stood by a hardline approach to illegal immigration in a key speech and ignored intra-party calls to soften his tone. Trump reiterated in a speech on Wednesday that the only way undocumented foreigners could live in the United States legally under his presidency would be to leave and apply for re-entry. While polls show a large majority of Hispanic voters oppose Trump, the withdrawal of support from among his small group of Latino backers underscores how difficult it is for Trump to broaden his support with minorities and moderate voters.
