Donald Trump's vow to form a "deportation force" to deal with the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants isn't yet a formal part of the GOP nominee's immigration policy, new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Sunday.

In an interview with CNN's "State of the Union," Conway asserted Trump's comments at a meeting with Hispanic supporters in New York on Saturday "differed very little from what he's said publicly… that we need a 'fair and humane' way of dealing with illegal immigrants.

"What he supports… [is] making sure that we enforce the law, that we are respectful of those Americans who are looking for well-paying jobs and that we are fair and humane for those who live among us in this country," she said. "As the weeks unfold… he will lay out the specifics of that plan that he would implement as president of the United States."

Pressed on whether that plan would include a deportation force, Conway replied: "To be determined."

Conway, who in 2005 criticized then-New York Sen. Hillary Clinton as someone who'd be unable to stand up to the nation's enemies since she "could not stand up to a cheating husband," denied she's comparing Clinton's political and personal history.

"We don't need to conflate the two," she said, but said she stood by the previous critique in one sense – that "people are looking for leadership."

"We know exactly how she would stand up to those powers," Conway added, slamming her accomplishments as amounting to "an unimpressive record."

She also denied that ousted Fox News CEO Roger Ailes is a formal adviser in the Trump campaign, asserting "he has no formal or informal role."

"Mr. Ailes is a genius when it comes to television and communicating with people," she said. "So is Donald Trump. I think what you saw this week is Donald Trump, the communicator, the connective tissue between him and people taking his case right to the people, and it's working."
