ON the third of January, Democrats will begin sitting down with the president to figure out what to do with DACA recipients. President Trump has already made it very clear that he wants to help the estimated 700,000 young folks to get a pathway to legal citizenship…but he has a price.
Yesterday, Trump tweeted that:
“The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!”
So now it's up to the DNC to get onboard with the MAGA agenda or risk alienating their voter base, and worse, being seen as complete partisan hypocrites.
If they refuse to go along with either building the wall, ending chain migration, or stopping the Diversity Lottery, Trump will be able to point the finger and say “You said you wanted to help the DACAk ids????”
Trump's requests are in no way unreasonable. Most countries have a secure border, in fact, both Clintons campaigned on the idea! Chain migration suppresses the wages of the low and unskilled workers in America (a large number of whom are legal migrants), and the Diversity Lottery is an antiquated joke!
He has the Dems up against a wall and with nowhere to turn but belly up. If they refuse, they lose respect and support. I wonder what they'll choose?
