    3 problems that could block Democrats' DACA 'deal' with Trump

    by Al Weaver and Pete Kasperowicz | Sep 14, 2017, 1:53 PM

    Democrats in the House and Senate said Thursday they had a deal with President Trump to protect immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, but passing that "deal" through Congress still faces significant hurdles.

    By Thursday afternoon, three major problems emerged with the supposed deal described by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

    First, Pelosi said Democrats are angling to pass a "Dream Act" bill from Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., that would give so-called Dreamers a path to permanent resident status in the U.S., and even U.S. citizenship.

    Democrats are pushing for that fix in anticipation of Trump rescinding former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy in March.

    But Trump himself seemed to raise questions about the Roybal-Allard bill, as he said at the White House Thursday morning, "We are not looking at citizenship. We are not looking at amnesty."

    That seems to directly contradict Pelosi's note to Democrats, which said "any solution to the challenge facing the Dreamers must include the Dream Act" that Roybal-Allard sponsored.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., pointed out that conflict as an example of why Trump's talk with Democrats should be seen as talks, and not a negotiation that led to a deal.

    "That's why this was not a negotiation, these are discussions understanding people's positions," he said.

    Democrats also said they would be open to tougher border security measures as part of a deal to restore DACA privileges to Dreamers. But in her note to Democrats, Pelosi said they want language that Reps. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, and Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., supported in 2013.

    That language would have required DHS to create a border enforcement strategy.

    The problem there for Democrats is that McCaul, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, appears to have moved on from that older idea.

    He introduced a bill in July called the Border Security for America Act that would provide $10 billion in funding for the border wall. It would also push to secure U.S. points of entry, add border patrol agents, and take other concrete steps to boost border enforcement.

    McCaul's new bill indicates that he is well past the idea of simply asking for a strategy, and wants to implement one, which is a sign Democrats will likely find it hard to get to a deal based on the softer language from 2013.

    A third, related problem for Democrats is their insistence that there is no wall funding in the deal. McCaul himself said Thursday that he wants the wall now.

    "I think this is probably the time to get it done," he told the Washington Examiner. "I think a wall where appropriate and fencing and technology, integrating a smart border, is really the way to go. That's what were going to authorize."

    "I've been working with the administration on this bill, it's been introduced, and we plan to mark it up and hopefully we can get all of this to the floor by sometime late-October or before Thanksgiving," he said.

    McCaul also downplayed Trump's comments indicating that he can wait more on the wall.

    "These are going to be discussions that we'll be having the next month in a lot of settings," he said. "But I do feel for the first time in my political career in my seventh term that we finally have an opportunity to get this done."

    President Trump needs to dump this whole charade and walk away, fast. You can't reason with stupid and the pro-amnesty crowd is the biggest bunch of collectivized stupid crooks in the history of the United States. The harm, cost, loss of life, damage, jobs, wages, environmental damage, housing costs and money supply these crooks have caused and stolen from the American People is incalculable.

    Mr. President, you end it and you end it now. You get every illegal alien in the United States regardless of their age, how they came here, how long they've been here, who brought them, what they've done or not done since they arrived, the hell out of here, ASAP.

    That's your mission, that's your job, and there's absolutely nothing "hard" about it. You ordered strikes on Syria, you've deployed troops to Afghanistan, and are preparing for a strike on North Korea to take out their nuclear weapons. When you can do all that while eating chocolate cake, and do it well by the way, you can sure as hell send a bunch of illegal aliens their notice of deportation to get the hell out of a country they aren't supposed to be in to begin with.

    Just Do It. Stop all this baby babble about DACA Deals with stupid crooks and get r done.
