Make a DEAL…

I know….I know, it sucks right. We wouldn’t even be in the situation we are in right now if we would have just enforced our immigration laws as they stand now. But we haven’t. Our borders have been open for years, freely allowing for those wanting to come into our country without going through due process.

Today President Trump sat down with bipartisan members of Congress to address DACA: (Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals) an Obama policy that has allowed roughly 800 thousand individuals who entered the country as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. This move by Obama was not permanent, because permanent immigration law REQUIRES CONGRESS.  On September 5th 2017, The Trump Administration announced that they would give Congress the chance to legally fix our immigration policy on DACA, the deadline for this is March 5th, 2018.

As a totally SANE looking President sat with members of Congress and publicly discussed DACA and border security, it was obvious that a Businessman was in the Oval Office. People that are business minded compromise in order to close a deal.

I believe this deal will allow the DACA participants to stay. I also don’t think that destroys Conservatives. I don’t believe that every DACA participant will vote Democrat. Once they are given a path to citizenship by a Republican President and they witness a booming economy, tax cuts in their paychecks, home ownership on the rise, job unemployment at record lows, consumer confidence at a seventeen year high, the soaring stock market, and maybe just maybe these Dreamers, won’t vote blue.  And you know what, the Democrats know this too, that’s why they don’t want to compromise on a border wall for DACA. They want the borders to stay open for votes.

Today Trump made it clear, DACA could be negotiated IF Three things on Trump’s side could be negotiated:

  1. Border Security– A wall in some parts across the border where it is easy to cross.
  2. End Chain Migration-Chain Migration refers to the endless chains of foreign nationals who are allowed to immigrate to the United States because citizens and lawful permanent residents are allowed to sponsor their non-nuclear family members.
  3. Cancel Lottery Immigration- A chance based immigration system, allowing anyone to enter. President Trump doesn’t want to leave our immigration up to chance, he wants those that will contribute to the U.S. in a positive way to enter instead.

We HAVE to secure the border. We have to end Chain Migration and we Must start bringing those that want to live the American Dream and not live off of the system of dependency in order for America to be Great Again. This is going to take compromise. I think the compromise is allowing the 800 Dreamer’s to stay.

If Democrats REALLY cared about the “Dreamers,” they would Make a Deal with the “Great Negotiator” and fund the Wall, end chain migration and implement a merit based system on immigration. Because this protects Americans, and this SHOULD BE our Elected Officials number one priority.

In closing, I want to be COMPLETELY CLEAR:
If Trump makes a DACA deal without having Border Security (the Wall) in the Deal, ending Chain Migration, and ending the lottery system-we are screwed.
The Deal must include these things!

Let’s be honest-Democrats really don’t want to save DACA.

Yesterday the White House presented Trump’s 70 point immigration Plan. A crackdown on illegal immigration and eliminating the numerous loopholes illegal immigrants have exploited over the years. According to the Washington Times:

“The plan calls for a border wall, more deportation agents, a crackdown on sanctuary cities and stricter limits to chain migration — all issues the White House says need to be part of any bill Congress passes to legalize illegal immigrant “Dreamers” currently protected by the Obama-era deportation amnesty known as DACA.”

On September 3rd of this year Trump called on Congress to legally solve the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.  A policy that has allowed almost a million individuals who entered the country as minors, and have remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work. This policy was implemented by Obama but done so unconstitutionally because for true immigration reform Congress must be involved in the legislation process.

The Democrats say they advocate for the Dreamers to stay….but do they? The “Great Negotiator” is strongly hinting that he is willing to Negotiate in order to let these DACA participants stay and receive a path to citizenship…..IF Congress passes immigration reform involving Trump’s 70 point plan -which involves border security (funding and building border wall), interior enforcement (abiding by current immigration laws) and the legal immigration system itself which Trump desires be merit based (deserved because of accomplishment or good behavior). Some of the points according the the Washington Times addresses ending the abuse of the current immigration laws:

• Lax asylum standards, which illegal immigrants have learned to game through saying “magic words” that earn them instant protections, would be stiffened.

• The Unaccompanied Alien Children — or UAC — who streamed to the U.S. under President Obama would have to prove they really are without parents and are fleeing abuse, in order to access generous humanitarian protections.

• Visitors who come legally but overstay their visas — perhaps now an even larger group of illegal immigrants than those who jump the border — would, for the first time, face a misdemeanor penalty.

• A 2001 Supreme Court decision that has forced the release of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants, including murderers, would be curtailed.

• The ability of federal, state and local authorities to detain illegal immigrants would be fully enshrined in law, helping settle a long-running question that’s fueled some sanctuary cities.

Points in the plan also entail eliminating the yearly visa lottery that gives at least 50,000 green cards out randomly, and requiring E-Verify (Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the U.S.) to be used by all businesses.

So….here’s the deal. If Democrats and Establishment Republicans REALLY do want to save the Dreamers and fight for these participants to STAY, then they will cooperate with President Trump and negotiate. If Congress refuses to act DACA will END and it will NOT be Trump’s fault. It will be due to the failure for Congress to compromise and work to allow these DACA participants to stay. But if we are going to be straight up honest, Democrats want open borders for votes and the will let DACA end to keep borders open. Establishment Republicans want open borders for cheap labor……both do not care about America or her sovereignty, and it’s disgusting. The ONLY one putting America First is President Trump and those that are willing to work with the President.

Ball is in Congresses court and so is ALL THE BLAME.

Call your Representative and Senators and tell them to work WITH President Trump!

The great negotiator negotiated.

Trump made a deal with the Democrats, and I am not freaking out over this.

President Trump has ignored opposition from Republican leaders like McConnell and Ryan and has made a deal with Democrats to fund the US government and raise the debt limit for three months (basically kicking the can down the road for the next three months till we have another similar showdown in December) this deal also provides emergency aid for the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey which is understandably needed.

In order to avoid a government shutdown on September 29th, the governments borrowing must be raised and a spending bill must be passed by September 30th. Paul Ryan, said it was “ridiculous ” for Democrats to suggest a short-term increase of the debt ceiling and after the deal with the Democrats, Ryan suggested that the President wanted to avoid a partisan fight as the country faced (faces) two devastating hurricanes.

Here’s the deal…..the great negotiator negotiated. If I were repeatedly denied  accomplishing the promises I made, …….I’d find a way around them (The Establishment GOP), and that’s what Trump did. What I believe Trump did here was show GOP Establishment Leadership that he will go around them if he has to to get things done. The GOP Establishment has constantly stood in President Trump’s way in checking off the promises He made to the American people. They couldn’t repeal Obamacare, they failed at including funding of the wall in the last budget proposal, they are being wishy washy on Trump’s proposed tax reform…..these thing HAVE TO HAPPEN for Trump to win again in 2020. Republicans were hoping to advance some type of measure that would take the issue off the table until after the 2018 midterm elections. Most Conservatives oppose raising the debt limit especially if it is not accompanied by spending cuts. They also wanted a longer term deal, instead of just a three month temporary fix.

I see this temporary proposal as a smart move. Why? Well as mentioned, in December we will be in the same place, which yes-bugs the hell out of me, but it’ll be time to negotiate again and this time the Democrats are going to want to resolve DACA (The Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals) as we get closer to the six month deadline Trump issued for a Congressional resolve. My prediction is that Trump will give these “dreamers” some sort of “fast track” to citizenship and they won’t be deported which appeases the Democrats. But the only way I think this happens is if the Democrats agree to a Wall, which WILL BE a hot bed issue as we head into Mid Terms in 2018.

We just witnessed a negotiation with the “Opposition.” I am sure this is causing panic on the Left, just as much as it’s causing panic on the Right. The left is supposed to HATE EVERYTHING Trump does and stand adamantly opposed regardless.

Personally I am not a “lose it all because I wouldn’t bend to get most of what I needed” kind of person, so I see the strategy in this.
