Rep Steve King – Trump Must Reverse Amnesty Course Or GOP Done In 2018, 2020

steve king

Alisyn Camerota opens the conversation with Rep Steve King (R-IA) by asking, “What did you just hear the President say?”

King replies that “You have to interpret what you hear him say, and wanting a big or  a large or a massive border security deal that doesn’t address domestic enforcement. It doesn’t really even tell us what the border security might be.”

“And if we don’t build a wall all the way through, then the rest of it is subject to prosecutorial discretion. His, as it was under Barack Obama or the next President. So, I think something’s going to have to be reversed here with this President’s policy or it’ll just blow up his base. I mean this was a  straight up promise all the way through his campaign.”

King says, “I don’t think it’s unclear to anybody what those campaign promises were.  But it looks to me like he’s preparing to keep Hillary Clinton’s campaign promise rather than his own.” She asks if King buys the Trump claim that the ongoing renovation of existing fencing is the same as the wall that was promised.

Rep King replies,  “Well not at all.” He compares that claim to fixing up an old jalopy rather than coming through with a new car that was promised and that folks are trying to redefine in a variety of ways what a wall means. During the campaign Trump was very clear on the meaning of his “big, beautiful wall.”

Congressman King makes an excellent point, that he’s been trying to identify, inquiring of White House officials, who the “Wall Czar” is, the project manager in charge of getting this major project done. He’s determined there is not one, saying, “and I’ve drilled deeply, and I’ve have promises that they would come to me and I can’t get those answers. I want to see the plans, I want to see what plans have been approved.”

King says, “I’ve worked for thirty years to restore the respect for the rule of law, especially with regard to immigration. And we were on the cusp of doing that until the Trump announcement the other day on DACA and now it looks to me like things are going downhill pretty fast and we better put it back together or the Republicans will be done in 2018 and 2020.”

  1. Maybe THIS GOP being ‘done’ is what he wants. It’s what I want. I will wait to see if any of them is re-elected before I become an independent again.

  2. i wish the hell i was running this country.
    ASS’S who need in JAIL would be there, and NO HOLDOVERS WOULD BE THERE EITHER.
    i CAN’T STAND PEOPLE WHO COMPROMISE THEIR BELIEFS OR INTEGRITY OR PLAY POLITICS WITH OTHER PEOPLES LIVES.
    it would be AMERICA AND AMERICANS FIRST AND THE HELL WITH TRAITORS.
    and all those BLM AND ANTIFA TYPES WOULD BE IN JAIL RIGHT NOW ALONG WITH THEIR SUPPORTERS.

  3. Looks like President Trump is turning into a Democrat. What is he doing to the people who voted for him. He is letting them down, like the Democrats. He seems to only care about DACA and the millions of illegals. He promised the American voters that DACA and millions of ILLEGALS would be DEPORTED. He promised to,’Build The Wall’, to keep millions more ILLEGALS out of our country. We have 95 million American citizens without jobs, thousands, if NOT millions hungry and homeless. Where is his promise to them. The only difference in President Trump and obummer is, we knew obummer was a liar, and was not for all American people. Wake up, America. We have been, ‘had’.

  4. Look, I’m not sure about anything at all, but I did get this email a little bit ago:

    There’s been a lot of noise today and a lot of rumors.

    Let me set the record straight in the simplest language possible…

    …WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO HELP STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND KEEP AMERICA SAFE.

    Apparently, liberals in Congress and the mainstream media need one more reminder that building the wall is non-negotiable.

    Thank you,

    President Donald J Trump signature
    Donald J. Trump
    President of the United States

    Hope that clears something up. It kinda does for me.

    • The President also said “There will be no amnesty for Dreamers,” But not sure how that applies to Congress fixing DACA.

  5. What the fuck is Trump doing?

    Starting to look worrisome, like we’re going back to talking about it ? And amnesty for these dreamers ? It’s been an eight year nightmare. Let’s get the business of immigration and it’s enforcement in gear and do the job ! Otherwise come next election vote incumbents out and no, no republicans to any office. Not even dog catcher ! We have waited eight years and listen to their empty promises and are feed up. No republicans and no, no incumbents no matter the office or experience. I’d vote for another Marion Barry rather than a republican or incumbent .

    Congress has to fund the wall. The only way that President Trump can lose credibility here is if he caves, bargains away, gives up or otherwise reneges on his oft-repeated promise to build the wall. The funding for it is out of his hands.

    The dems convinced DJT the daca illegals are nice kids working & going to college. Not 100% true. How many gang members were daca kids? What about the cost to us for them? What about the jobs lost to them? DJT needs to get his head screwed back on & deport ALL illegals including the refugees. Build that wall! That’s what us Americans want & Americans first.
