Looks like the Wall is going to be one of those things that is juuuuuuuuuuuuuuust out of reach for the rest of this one term President.
Don’t worry guys, Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan want to let you all know, Obamacare is here to stay, Trump’s Tax Reform is being slow walked to oblivion, we won’t get a budget, but you know what?
We have time to denounce the KKK and to pass amnesty for the illegal aliens who benefitted from the illegal Obama administration executive memorandum, DACA.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer state that they’ve reached a deal with the best dealmaker ever, we’ll get DACA forever with some nebulous random bobbles for border security… and no funding for a wall.
The top House and Senate Democrats said Wednesday they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump’s long-sought border wall.
The deal announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. The program provided temporary work permits and protection from deportation.
Trump ended the program earlier this month and had given Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the statuses of the so-called “Dreamers” begin to expire.
“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.
It was the second time in two weeks that Trump cut out Republicans to reach a deal with Pelosi and Schumer. A person briefed on the meeting, who demanded anonymity to discuss it, said the deal specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for the young immigrants.
Yep, we’ll get 800,000 to 3 million new democrat voters. Isn’t this great?
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but said in its own statement that the president had had “a constructive working dinner” with Schumer, Pelosi and administration officials “to discuss policy and legislative priorities,” including DACA.
“This is a positive step toward the President’s strong commitment to bipartisan solutions for the issues most important to all Americans,” the White House said.
During a White House meeting with moderate House members from both parties earlier Wednesday, Trump had urged lawmakers to come up with a bipartisan solution.
“We don’t want to forget DACA,” Trump told the members at the meeting. “We want to see if we can do something in a bipartisan fashion so that we can solve the DACA problem and other immigration problems.”
The apparent deal is the latest example of Trump’s sudden pivot to bipartisanship after months of railing against Democrats as “obstructionist.” He has urged them to join him in overhauling the nation’s tax code, among other priorities.
Trump, who was deeply disappointed by Republicans’ failure to pass a health care overhaul, infuriated many in his party when he reached a three-month deal with Schumer and Pelosi to raise the debt ceiling, keep the government running and speed relief to states affected by recent hurricanes.
“More and more we’re trying to work things out together,” Trump explained Wednesday, calling the development a “positive thing” for both parties.
“If you look at some of the greatest legislation ever passed, it was done on a bipartisan manner. And so that’s what we’re going to give a shot,” he said.
Just to give you some hope, here is Sarah Huckabee Sanders stating that DACA needs to be tied to a package that includes funding for the Wall:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier Wednesday that Trump was “committed to the wall. It doesn’t have to be tied to DACA but its important and he will get it done.”
Oh wait… what? I guess this truly must be the best deal ever!
This better be an outright lie by the Democrats, or this Presidency is over.
UPDATE: What Happens if DACA Recipients Are Allowed Citizenship?
Since illegal aliens vote like blacks do in US Elections, which states will be flipping in 2020 if this is allowed to pass?
Michigan has around 7K registered DACA recipients with more eligible for the program if they register. Trump won it by a little over 10,000 votes. Michigan will flip.
Wisconsin has around 8,000 registered DACA recipients, again with more eligible for the program if they register. Trump won the state with just over 22,000 votes. Wisconsin likely flips.
Pennsylvania will have Trump’s lead cut down from his margin of 44,000 votes to 38,000 if DACA recipients are given the Dream Act benefits. Out of 6 million votes cast, this traditionally democrat state flips.
And ladies and gentlemen, that is the ballgame.
UPDATE: TRUMP WHITE HOUSE BACKPEDALING OR DEMOCRATS LIED
The Trump Administration came out with a tweet stating there was no deal.
WH leg affairs director Marc Short calls Dems' DACA statement "misleading," says no deal on DACA or border wall $$ was reached tonight.
