The White House unveiled President Trump’s plan for the DACA illegals on Thursday, giving three times their current numbers a path to citizenship as a concession to Democrats in
President Trump will devote part of his State of the Union address to the rollout of his new DACA amnesty proposal and making the argument on international television that he’s willing to go beyond the demands of Democrats but wants significant concessions in return.
The White House revealed on Thursday that President Trump will be offering a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal alien DACA squatters, almost three times the number protected illegally by Obama, who had no option for citizenship.
His RINO golfing buddy, Lindsey Graham, had, along with globalist sidekick Dick Durbin, proposed handing out citizenship to 3 million under their plan, which Trump declared to be DOA. As it is, following the uproar among open borders agitators after Democrats “abandoned them” in the government shutdown, it’s going to be very difficult for Democrats to argue against border security at the cost of citizenship for their “future constituents.” Trump has played this one pretty well from that perspective.
White House officials explained that they felt it would be necessary for them to exceed expected numbers in order to demand increased national security and sovereignty mechanisms from the open border globalist Democrats. Those mechanisms include an end to catch-and-release, which supposedly had already taken place and then for some reason was started up again by the Trump DHS.
They also want full funding for the border wall, expedited deportations of illegal children and families and limiting chain migration to spouses and minor children. Those already in the system backlog would be allowed to enter, but no future extended family applications would be accepted.
An unnamed senior White House official said, “As part of this effort to ensure there is full bipartisan support for this package, we believe the total number that will be able to apply for legal status … will be a population of individuals of 1.8 million people.”
He went on to state that without the border security, enforcement and policy changes there would be no agreement. Another unnamed official said, “This is kind of a bottom line for the president.” President Trump’s plan requires the establishment of a $25 billion trust fund to build the border wall and other related infrastructure. That money could not be defunded by a future Congress.
The 1.8 million includes the 800,000 currently enrolled in DACA plus approximately 600,000 who were eligible for DACA but failed to apply, and another 500,000 that will be included under “adjusted timelines.”
The White House described the 1.8 million figure as “a dramatic concession by the White House to get to 60 votes in the Senate.” The process for being granted citizenship would be between 10 and 12 years in length.
Senator Ted Cruz was less than thrilled by the announcement, stating, “I do not believe we should be granting a path to citizenship to anybody here illegally. All of these proposals being floated that have a path to citizenship for DACA recipients are markedly to the left of where President Obama was. DACA itself has no path to citizenship under President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty.”
Democrats naturally used the announcement as an opportunity to criticize President Trump, with spittle sprinkling Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) saying, “What he says on Tuesday is not to necessarily what he says on Thursday.” That’s the spirit of bipartisanship we’ve come to expect from the globalists.
Why the Senate is attempting to put up welcome signs at the border, the House has a much more America-centric plan that they are working on, which does not include squatter citizenship and restricts 3-year work permits to 690,000 DACA illegals currently signed up. In exchange it also requires the border wall, mandatory use of E-Verify by employers, reducing abuse and levels in the asylum system, a crackdown on sanctuary governments and sanctions for repeat-entry after being deported.
The White House stated that President Trump sees his plan as a basis for Senate negotiations which does not in any way inhibit or restrict the House from working out their own plan. A White House adviser told The Washington Times, “We’re not trying to force something on the House at this point, I think the House has got its own independent process.”
