President Trump Meets with Bipartisan Members of the Senate on Immigration

I just read a comment that said: “Watch it. Important to your understanding of how our President operates/negotiates and how the Dems and Republicans presented their sides – live, without media filters.”

As a person who is trying to understand this huge and important subject, input of this kind is essential. I am glad that President Trump chose to make this meeting completely public.

Trump’s TV-Show Exposes Democrat Weakness, GOP Unity, in Amnesty Fight

President Donald Trump’s riveting spectacle of televised bipartisanship exposed the Democrats’ political weakness in the amnesty debate — and also revealed remarkable GOP unity on the goal of ending the nation’s chain-migration system.

Time after time, Democrats pleaded for a quick passage of unpopular ‘dreamer’ amnesty while also promising a later-meaning-never debate over popular immigration reforms, such as the elimination of the visa-lottery and the chain-migration system, which doubles the annual inflow of legal immigrants.

Time after time, in contrast, GOP leaders wrapped themselves in sympathy for the 670,000 DACA illegals while insisting that Congress must implement Trump’s popular policies by ending the huge visa-lottery and chain-migration programs which are slowly but steadily freezing Americans’ wages while turning Republican states blue.

A key moment came when Trump invited GOP Majority leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy to shut down the Democrats’ demand for a quick amnesty by touting the president’s immigration priorities as a must-do item.

Read the Breitbart article, which highlights points in the negotiations.

    Real Housewives and the Art Of The Deal

    They said if I voted for Donald Trump he would turn D.C. into another reality show. Of course what they failed to understand is that D.C. has always been a reality show. President Trump just decided to broadcast it.

    In a time where few people, even federal judges, seem to understand and/or respect the law…

    A federal judge on Tuesday blocked the Trump administration from rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects those who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children from facing deportation if they meet certain qualifications.

    U.S. District Judge William Alsup, who is based in San Francisco, ordered the Trump administration to renew parts of the program and to start accepting renewal applications from those already part of the program while related lawsuits make their way through the legal system…Alsup argued the administration’s assertion that DACA was unlawful appeared to be “based on a flawed legal premise. [ed. What “flawed legal premise? That you can’t unilaterally circumvent Congress after it declined to extend the DACA benefits to this same group of illegal aliens?]

    it’s fairly easy to understand why the President decided to go live with his reality show.

    Let’s have a little of that transparency that Obama spoke so highly of but never implemented. Let’s hear the Democrats defend their insistence that our borders remain open to all comers and chain migration continue in order to ensure generations of future Dem voters. Let’s hear them insist, again, that if you give them what they want now they’ll work with you later on what you want.

    Let’s hear the Democrats tell us they want a “clean DACA” bill – meaning amnesty for the Dreamers with no strings attached. Let’s hear Trump amiably agree that he too wants a clean DACA bill, by which he means funding of The Wall and an end to chain migration and the visa lottery. Note to Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson: it’s too soon to talk about Trump being a traitor. Remember the President is fresh from a meeting with Republican leaders at Camp David last weekend. When he says “I’ll sign whatever you send me” I suspect he has an agreement with the House and Senate leaders regarding acceptable parameters. So why would they send him anything else? And I’m betting the bill includes wall funding and the end of chain migration and the visa lottery. Yes, I assume it will also include some type of legality – short of automatic citizenship – for any of the Dreamers who’ve managed to keep a clean rap sheet. But frankly I’ve always assumed that would be the case. It’s the art of the deal.

    “You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.” Donald Trump, The Art of the Deal

    Im torn here. As a Californian at ground zero for illegals, it is easier for everyone who has not experienced what we have experienced for decades to tout a compromise. Ms13 started here. Most of the cartel activity started here. Reagan signed the amnesty order without the wall, on good faith, which never came to be. Pissed as California voters were, proposition 187 was our solution. Then that was shot down. And illegal immigration has exploded since. My state from the roads, to schools, social programs, to severe government corruption from local to state has been generationally and negatively changed because of illegals. My life, my husband’s life and my childs life have been negatively impacted for many years already.

    I am willing to give POTUS the benefit of the doubt until I see the plan. I hope he really holds fast to what we need. But if theres one issue I take exception to, its on immigration and the consequences of illegals.

    We need to somehow reframe, and fast, DACA is mostly for human trafficking. Right now, with all the stuff coming out of libs mouth about woman being used and stuff, it will make it harder for anyone to be aproponent of DACA. Remove the compassion story-line to the horrors of human trafficking.

    Or move to redefining WHO is DACA. Sure, let them stay BUT no welfare, no college paid for with any tax dollars, no status as minority, no medicaid, and create a foreign-nationals income tax that makes it pretty unfriendly to work here. No free medical care at ER Departments.. Instead, sure we go for DACA when each participant’s home country pays monies to reimburse communities for footing k-12 education and they accept and pay for transport of sick patients back to their country. NO RELATIVES can stay with them here in USA..

    Yeah, DACA can be part of the new bill….sure but, but, first………
