Donald Trump: Let DACA Recipients Stay; Not Amnesty

President Donald Trump argued that allowing DACA recipients to stay in the United States would not be amnesty. “We’re looking at allowing people to stay here,” Trump said to reporters in Florida on Thursday.
He insisted that his deal with Democrats on DACA recipients would not be amnesty.
“We’re not looking at citizenship, we’re not looking at amnesty,” Trump said.
On Air Force One however, a White House spokesperson confirmed that “legal citizenship over a period of time” for DACA recipients would likely be part of a deal. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted that the plan would offer them a “path to citizenship.”
Legal status with a pathway to citizenship is NOT amnesty. So I guess that’s scratch number 7 here?
How has Trump screwed me? Let me count the ways :
1. Secure the border in a transparently verifiable way;
2. End the anchor-baby interpretation of the 14th Amendment
3. Enforce e-verify without exception and with severe penalties;
4. End chain migration. Entry per individual qualifications; not family ties.
5. Deportation upon contact with any law enforcement agency- federal, state or local;
6. No government benefits beyond critical emergency care(and that ought to be billed back to the home government);
7. NO “Path to citizenship” EVER for anyone who has entered the us illegally.
To: Rockitz” a White House spokesperson confirmed that ‘legal citizenship over a period of time’ “
None dare call it
To: xzins…and then there’s this quote from the article.On Air Force One however, a White House spokesperson confirmed that “legal citizenship over a period of time” for DACA recipients would likely be part of a deal.
Maybe another phony source like the NY Slimes or WaPo, huh?
Ya but this isn’t looking good. He shouldn’t even need to work with the democrats. But the GOP refuse to work with Trump. What the flying fluck!
Trump has done some pretty decent things this year.
He will do still more.
I don’t agree with him on DACA. I think it’s misguided and not justified by the facts, at all.
Has John McCain done much decent in the last thirty years?
Will he ever do much decent?
We’re not going to win on everything. I think most of us knew that going in. If he delivers on 75% of what he said he would, I’ll be very happy. I’d be happy at 50%.
To: xzinsTrump did not say there is a path to citizenship. Others, including Pelosi, did. A worker permit is not cotizenship.
On Air Force One, a White House spokesman said there would be “legal citizenship over a period of time”. So either Trump is playing another word game and we are getting the truth from a White House spokesman, or the spokesman should no longer be employed.
You kids can call it whatever you want, but those of us who are older remember George W. Bush, John McCain, Teddy Kennedy, Rick Perry, etc. pushing for the “guest worker” b.s. back around 2006 that would offer a path to “legal citizenship” as well.
To: All“We’re looking at allowing people to stay here” Trump said.
“Read my lips, no new taxes.”
If we want to be real the Dreamers were staying no matter what. But it is a pretty shitty deal to explicitly cave on it for nothing but a vague promise? of a border wall and absolutely no credit or political capital at all. Trump is still every bit the racist and xenophobe to practically everybody after this as he was before.
To: RockitzWe learned nothing from the 1986 amnesty. This is nothing more than total capitulation. He’s giving the dems exactly what they want and we don’t get the wall….but we do get jack squat.Put as much lipstick on this pig as you want, but this is losing, big time.
To: af_vet_rrSemantics…all of it.
I am so very saddened by this. Just went out and ripped the Trump bumper sticker off my rusty Subaru. The sticker that just said TRUMP 2016, long before he even had a running mate! Long before he won the primary.
Oh no! Not ANOTHER bumper sticker gone? The horror……..the horror………
In Maryland you have to be brave to drive around with a Trump bumper sticker. I did! I thought he was my President.
Donated $100 every month to Trump’s campaign, before he even won the primary.
I trusted this man.
Burn me once…SHAME ON YOU! YOU LIED!
Don’t think I will ever bother to vote again. Thank goodness I’m old enough that it won’t matter.
Hillary in jail-not done
arms to Syrian rebels stop-not done
repeal of Obama are- not done
out of Afghanistan-not done
Mexican funding for wall-not done
Feel like I AM still missing a ton of the promises not done or where the opposite has been done.
To: CololeoIf nothing passes, Trump gets to blame Congress, DACA expires, and all is well.
Here we go again..
