 Donald Trump didn't make a "firm commitment" to top Hispanic advisers about whether he'd follow through on a campaign promise to deport 11 million illegal immigrants, Sen Jeff Sessions said Sunday.

In an interview on CBS News'  "Face The Nation," the Alabama senator said Trump is weighing how to implement, if elected, immigration proposals that have included a vow to enact a "deportation force" to eject illegal immigrants living in the United States.

"He's wrestling with how to do that," Sessions said. "People that are here unlawfully, came into the country against our laws, are subject to being removed. That's just plain fact."

The GOP nominee held a meeting with Hispanic supporters at Trump Tower in New York on Saturday to elicit ideas about how to implement a "humane" and "efficient" immigration policy.

"What I'm certain about is that he did not make a firm commitment yesterday, or the meeting the other day, about what he will do with that. But he did listen, and he's talking about it," Sessions said.

Trump's newly appointed campaign manager Kellyanne Conway also deflected a definitive answer on whether Trump still backs a deportation force to remove illegals, saying it's a decision "to be determined."
