Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump gives a thumbs up to the crowd during a campaign rally on August 31, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona.

In lieu of Donald Trump's immigration speech, Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City, talks about New York City's status as a sanctuary city, one that follows certain procedures that shelters illegal immigrants.
