On Thursday morning President Trump took to Twitter to take a swing at the Democrats for failing to create a bipartisan bill to protect Dreamers. This has been one of Trumps campaign promises to help crack down on illegal immigration.
He followed this tweet later on in the evening:
Back in September President Donald Trump said that he would move to end the program, which protected certain young immigrants who were brought into the U.S. illegally when they were kids from being deported, unless Congress could come up with a fix by March.
The government shutdown early this year ended after being told that a DACA deal would be reached by March 5th. If they fail to create a bipartisan bill to protect the Dreamers, then we face another government shutdown.
The Democrats gave into GOP for a petty promise that they knew would be left in the air. The Democratic party has no clear platform of what they are or what they stand for. Democrat Dick Durbin created a bipartisan bill with Republican Lindsey Graham, which would protect Dreamers and give Donald Trump funding for his southern border. This bill was surprisingly struck down by President Trump.
The White Houses Plan:
The White House unveiled details of Trump’s immigration plan earlier last week. The plan included a path to citizenship for 1.8 million immigrants who are covered by the DACA program, and as well as those who are eligible for DACA but did not apply.
President Trump will be seeking $25 billion in funding for his wall along the southern border. This money would be put in a trust fund, preventing it from being reallocated by any future Congresses.If the Democrats cave on the Dreamers by giving the GOP funding for the wall. Then they might as well just not run for re-election in the 2018 midterms.
