Guess who’s ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall



Guess whos ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall

Join me, if you will, as we embark on a short journey six years into the past.

In January, 2013, America was introduced to the “Gang of Eight,” a group of four Democrats and four Republicans in the US Senate, brought together for a single purpose: creating a plan to grant amnesty and an eventual pathway to citizenship for millions of so-called DREAMers, aka illegal aliens.

Sure, the gang led by Lindsey Graham claimed they were working on immigration reform and border security. But as pro-amnesty gang member Marco Rubio said at the time, Congress needed to “address the reality” of illegal immigration.

Though the 2013 version was eventually disbanded, in 2016, Graham introduced the idea of putting the Gang of Eight Band back together.

“I’ll tell you what I’m going to do in 2017. I’m going to take the Gang of Eight bill out, dust it off, and ask anybody and everybody who wants to work with me to make it better to do so.”

While his plans were delayed until 2018, Graham succeeded in finding a few new faces to join the band, including Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner. And it looks like this new band will be picking up right where the old band left off.

During a meeting with band members on Wednesday, Kushner — a Democrat who loves Obama’s DACA order — told Senators in attendance that Trump will sign any amnesty deal as long as it includes border security funding. Considering the fact that Trump is also a Democrat who loves DACA, I think we can conclude that such a deal is very likely to become a reality.

How likely?

When Trump issued his Rescind-In-Name-Only order reversing DACA in 2017, he structured it in a way that allowed the Obama-era law to stay in effect indefinitely, a fact verified at the time by a senior member of the White House staff.

One year ago, Trump called a proposed DACA fix supported by Jeb Bush a “bill of love” that he would willingly sign in exchange for a border wall … or as we now know, a reasonable facsimile thereof.

And just weeks before the Democrats took back the House in the midterms, Trump and Graham both stated that they would work with Democrats on a deal where DACA would be saved in exchange for wall funding . . . WITHOUT CONDITIONS . . . during the lame duck session.

Do you remember when Trump had this to say about repealing DACA and building a “big, beautiful wall?”

Good times. Good times.

Pirro: Democrats putting politics over people



Pirro Democrats putting politics over people

Following President Trump’s speech to America with his compromise offer to Democrats to secure the border and end the government shutdown, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro was in rare form as she went after Democrats for instantly rejecting the proposal. Her biggest target was Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

The President has requested funds in order to build a small portion of the border wall, render humanitarian assistance, improve drug detection technology, and hire 2,750 additional border patrol agents and 75 immigration judge teams. In exchange, he’s offering three years of extended protection for DACA recipients and those with Temporary Protected Status.

Here was her response:

My Take

There are many conservatives who are against the proposal. Under normal circumstances, I would be as well. But we’re approaching a full month of the government shutdown. Enough is enough.

Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall?



Will Democrats abandon Dreamers over the political ploy of the border wall

The ball is back in the Democrats’ court. Some may say it’s been there the whole time. I do. Unfortunately, most Americans have bought into the leftist media narrative that the President is forcing the government shutdown to continue by not negotiating despite clear evidence to the contrary.

Nevertheless, the President has decided to make his compromise public. He took to national television to offer three years worth of protection to Dreamers.

Trump’s immigration offer brings polarized reactions from Dems and GOP Trump’s immigration compromise package to end the partial government shutdown drew sharp reactions from Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike.

In a televised White House address Saturday, Trump offered Democrats a three-year extension of protections for 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to fund a barrier along the southern border with Mexico.

The Democrats’ responses were predictable. They don’t want any deal that includes the border wall because they realize if they can keep the wall from going forward, it harms the President’s chances for reelection in 2020.


This has never been about helping immigrants. Democrats are willing to harm both Dreamers and 800,000 Americans hurt by the shutdown in order to make the President look bad for 2020. They’re a disgrace to our nation’s government. Build the wall.

No national emergency declaration: Trump’s “major announcement” will be an offer Democrats can’t refuse



No national emergency declaration Trumps major announcement will be an offer Democrats cant refuse

This may be the best news I’ve heard all day (yes, even better than learning the Buzzfeed story was debunked, though that was pretty awesome as well). According to multiple outlets, the President will NOT be declaring a national emergency to fund the border wall and end the government shutdown. Instead he will be making Democrats an offer on live television to get the wall funded while dangling an incentive that he hopes will push Democrats to the negotiating table.

I’ll admit up front that I didn’t see this coming. I even went so far as to scold the President prematurely for declaring a national emergency, which apparently he is not. As I’ve always said, I will praise him when he does well and criticize him when he does poorly. Unless this report is wrong, I’ll happily praise him… unless his offer is too much.

What might be offered? Perhaps the DACA fix he didn’t want to do when Senator Chuck Schumer shut down the government last year. Maybe he’ll throw them a curve ball and offer some sort of boost to environmental efforts. Perhaps it’ll be adding more humanitarian aid to his border security package, greatly increasing the size and manpower of facilities that hold and process illegal immigrants and migrant seekers.

If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on a DACA fix. Then again, I would have also put my money on him declaring a national emergency, and it seems I would have lost that bet.

Whatever the offer is, it’ll need to be something that will make the Democrats look poorly to Independents and moderate Democrats if they don’t take it while not being so much that his base will feel betrayed by the offer.

Assuming this pans out as expected, I owe the President an apology for assuming the worst. Instead of the worst, this may be the best case scenario and as long as he’s not giving up too much, may also be the best move of his presidency.
