This confrontation between the American public and the NFL has been brewing a long time. However, Trump’s criticism of the NFL caused public fury to explode.
He and the Republicans have seized upon the public’s distraction to launch a major push to legalize all the 35 year old “children” that came into the country via DACA… and their friends and families too.
Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children, offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.
The legislation creates an avenue for Trump to both fulfill a campaign promise to end an Obama-era program known as DACA while yielding to what appears to be his personal desire to let these immigrants remain in the country.
“Who cares about DACA if there’s a Dream Act,” said a Republican involved with the policy negotiations and aware of Tillis’ plan.
About 2.5 million Dreamers would be eligible.
Breitbart notes that the Republicans have vastly expanded the eligibility to add more people to the 800,000 which was originally presented to the public.
Trump won the last election by about 80K votes. This will be more than enough to ensure a permanent Democrat majority.
