A ‘Read-My-Lips’ Moment for Trump? by Patrick J. Buchanan

Much of Trump’s base is angry at his recent machinations on immigration. From Patrick J. Buchanan at buchanan.org:

“Having cut a deal with Democrats for help with the debt ceiling, will Trump seek a deal with Democrats on amnesty for the ‘Dreamers’ in return for funding for border security?”

The answer to that question, raised in my column a week ago, is in. Last night, President Donald Trump cut a deal with “Chuck and Nancy” for amnesty for 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program who came here illegally as youngsters, in return for Democratic votes for more money for border security.

According to preening Minority Leader Pelosi, the agreement contains not a dime for Trump’s Wall, and the “Dreamers” are to be put on a long glide “path to U.S. citizenship.”

Trump denies this is amnesty, and says the Wall comes later.

Fallout? Among the most enthusiastic of Trump backers, disbelief, disillusionment and wonderment at where we go from here.

Trump’s debt-ceiling deal cut the legs out from under the GOP budget hawks. But amnesty would pull the rug out from under all the folks at those rallies who cheered Trump’s promise to preserve the country they grew up in from this endless Third World invasion.

For make no mistake. If amnesty is granted for the 800,000, that will be but the first wave. “There are reasons no country has a rule that if you sneak in as a minor you’re a citizen,” writes Mickey Kaus, author of “The End of Equality,” in The Washington Post.

“We’d be inviting the world. … (An amnesty) would have a knock-on effect. Under ‘chain migration’ rules established in 1965 … new citizens can bring in their siblings and adult children, who can bring in their siblings and in-laws until whole villages have moved to the United States.

“(T)oday’s 690,000 dreamers would quickly become millions of newcomers who may well be low-skilled and who would almost certainly include the parents who brought them — the ones who in theory are at fault.”

  1. Look at Australia and its equivalent of “Chain Migration” : Many, many immigrating people on welfare, working people are plunged into poverty. The immigrants do not pay enough tax in their working life to support their own welfare payments let alone contributing to the society.

    There is a whole gravy train “Immigration Service Industry” built on distributing of welfare to immigrants, at the expense of the working men.

  2. If those”dreamers” were blond haired blued eyed GOP trending “Children”,
    The ditch carp of the left would be the first to scream for deportation and the wall. Gore meet ox.

  3. Why do we jump to the conclusion that any discussion is NEGATIVE? POTUS has come through over and over, yet, there is a continuous desire to make him look like the self-serving group that constitutes Congress and much of the Supreme Court. He is the ONLY non-pollitition. in the group. Is he perfect? No one is but he is the first in a very long time that is standing up for what he said. Did any of the Congress do what they said they would accept the Socialist (or worse) Democrat Party? Why are we still trying to divide the USA allowing the Left to prevail?
