THIS IS BIG. While Trump was speaking to reporters today he admitted that he would be willing to give Dreamer illegal aliens a “pathway to citizenship.”
BREAKING: Trump says immigration plan will let protections for younger immigrants "morph into" citizenship in 10-12 years.— The Associated Press (@AP) January 24, 2018
That’s quite a way to split this baby in the middle – his supporters will be very angry that he’s ok with amnesty and a pathway to citizenship, BUT, at least he can say that it’s going to take a decade. Will that appease the immigration hawks in his base?
AND he wants a TON of money for the border wall:
On immigration bill, Pres Trump said he wants $30-billion - including $25-billion to build a border wall. In exchange, would agree to a path to citizenship for DACA "Dreamers," during a 10-12-year period if no criminal record.— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) January 24, 2018
Wow. Will Dems go for it? They have been whining for a “clean DACA bill,” but Trump is smart to demand what he wants for what they want really badly… and they’re certainly weak from being soundly beaten by the government shutdown.
We’ll have to put Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson on suicide watch after they hear about this…
