There is no agenda here behind the scenes that could benefit the White working class.
We were betrayed in every sense of the word, and I’m willing to put money on the fact that this year is going to resound with a giant bitch slap to our faces courtesy of the Golden Don himself.
You’re going to see DACA go forward, and you’re going to see just a few token gestures in place of the WALL we were all promised since the summer of 2015.
No real defenses, no end to the invasion, but a true amnesty that will almost certainly balloon like Reagan’s into something admitting millions upon millions of racial enemies.
That, my friends, is what we’re all going to get instead of #MAGA.
President Trump on Thursday laid out his demands for an immigration deal to Republican senators, making clear he doesn’t expect Congress to build a physical 2,200-mile concrete wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Instead, the president wants Congress to increase security along the border by ratcheting up patrols, surveillance and fencing, in return for relief for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program recipients in an immigration deal that could be tied to the 2018 spending bill.
“People want to paint that it’s some 2,000-mile long, 30-foot-high wall of concrete. That’s not what he means and not what he tries to say,” said Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.), who met with Trump at the White House Thursday.
“There’s going to be border fencing in some areas, there’s going to be vehicular barricades, there’s going to be technology, there’s going to be greater manpower in some areas,” he added.
So we’ll end up with what the 00’s GOP pushed – my gut is telling me that most of this will stagnate in the American bureaucracy, and later pass away without even being reported on.
Lankford said Trump has been clear “in private.”
Donald Trump has proven himself to be mentally weak, and has demonstrated time and time again that even the most primitive arguments from the right people can sway him on serious issues – see Ivanka’s tears and the Syria strike.
He’s really the textbook definition of a beta male behind the public bravado – a man who cannot stick to his original positions is nothing more than a coward.
Government funding runs out on Jan. 19, and Congress has until March 5 to come up with a solution to protect “Dreamers” from deportation.
Other Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday met with Trump Thursday — including Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas), Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Sen. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and Sen. Thom Tillis (N.C.) — to get a better sense of what border security needs must be met as part of an immigration deal with Democrats.
Trump told lawmakers to end chain migration and the visa lottery program as part of a possible deal with Democrats to protect an estimated 800,000 Dreamers from deportation.
First off, that number of 800,000 is the lowest possible figure, and is in actuality probably just as bogus as the 11 million illegals we’re told reside in America – a number that hasn’t changed in at least a decade.
Second, you’re talking about abolishing a program that only lets in 50,000 per year in return for an amnesty that will cover millions – and their children, spouses, etc…
And third, we’ve heard the chain migration argument time and time again, but yet the broken status of this country guarantees that the courts will nullify this part of the deal before the ink on the DACA law dries.
GOP lawmakers are trying to put together a final proposal for beefing up border security, ending chain migration and the visa lottery program before a meeting with Democrats planned for Tuesday.
Some of us tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen.
Now just be ready for a stab in the back that will echo throughout the ages.
