Trump accuses Democrats of going ‘AWOL’ in immigration talks

President Trump blamed Democrats for being “AWOL” in the immigration debate but predicted his plans to fix DACA and secure the border still had a chance of succeeding.

“Our immigration situation, I think it has a chance,” Mr. Trump said in remarks to the Republican National Committee winter meeting Thursday evening in Washington.

Mr. Trump has offered a compromise that would put 1.8 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” on a 12-year path to citizenship in exchange for a $25 billion trust fund to build the wall, and end to the Visa Diversity Lottery and limits on family-based chain migration.

But Democrats are balking.

Both sides are looking to a scaled-down agreement that provides some border security and a legal status short of citizenship to the Dreamers — illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and will soon lose legal status granted under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

    They could care less about solving the immigration problem. Liberals WANT hardship so that they can have a problem they can wank about. They no more want to fix immigration than they want to fix racial equality, gender equality or any other “hot button” issue of the day. They especially do NOT want it fixed under ANY Republican, but especially not Trump. It would destroy their narrative of him being a white supremacist and a xenophobe.

    More to the point, the “D” in DACA is for “Delayed”. That they have been “safe” for 12 years with NO effort to legalize their status is every one else’s fault, why?

    If you want to take care of the people from other countries then help them in their country to live a better life. This idea of bringing them to America to pull our society down to their level just to help them is foolish. If we do not grow our society under the culture America was designed then we will not stay the worlds leader for freedom. We need to raise the other countries to our freedom status and not bring ours down to their level. The leaders we have are corrupt when they only want voters to provide them power. This should be recognized and should be grounds to kick these people out of government positions. The people need the power to vote a corrupt person out of government for a lifetime. This way they can get a regular job and work for a living.

    DACA is poison for our Constitutional Republic. Wake up the Democrats and their dreamers. Deport Them All!
