The Gang of Six announced their Triple Oreo Amnesty yesterday afternoon:
– The first layer consists of a path to citizenship not just for DACA recipients, but for all the so-called DREAMers eligible to enroll in the DACA program.
– The second layer consists of an amnesty for the parents of DREAMers who are rewarded for breaking our laws to come here and drop their anchor babies.
– The third layer of amnesty consists to “revamping” the diversity lottery so that 50,000 visas are given to the Nicaraguans, Salvadorans and Haitians losing temporary protected status.
The rest of the Triple Oreo Amnesty consists of allocating a mere $1.6 billion for the border wall funding (enough to build around a 70 mile token portion of it) and ending “chain migration” ONLY for DREAMers (at least until they become US citizens and can sponsor relatives).
Now, you might be wondering after seeing this DACA deal why the hell the GOP was given control of the Senate in the 2014 midterms, which was supposedly necessary to STOP DACA. This deal expands Obama’s amnesty into the DREAM Act and adds two more amnesties on top.
The goal here seems to be to convince you that the Republican Party deserves to lose the 2018 midterm elections by illustrating they are incapable of representing their own voters.
Note: Donald Trump has said no dice to this. It is a political suicide note. I guess we will see if he changes his mind or the Senate comes up with something else.
