WASHINGTON (AP) -

Donald Trump's chief supporters, led by his vice presidential running mate, are having trouble speaking for him, especially on immigration policy.
    
Mike Pence on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday could not say whether the Republican presidential nominee is sticking by, or backing off, his pledge to deport the estimated 11 million people in the United States illegally with the help of a "deportation force."
    
Pence and other Trump supporters across the Sunday talk show dial said Trump will detail his immigration policy over the next two weeks. They insisted that Trump has been "consistent" on his immigration policy.
    
In recent days, Trump has suggested he might be "softening," saying Wednesday that he might be open to allowing at least some immigrants in the country illegally to stay, as long as they pay taxes.
    
The next day, he ruled out legal status, "unless they leave the country and come back," he told CNN.
