    Flake Is A Yes On Tax Reform After Leadership Agrees To Negotiate On DACA

    Flake Is A Yes On Tax Reform After Leadership Agrees To Negotiate On DACA

    GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona conceded his support for the Senate tax reform bill Friday, giving GOP leadership their 50th vote hours before the upper chamber is scheduled to vote on the legislation.

    I am pleased to announce I will vote in support the tax reform bill,” Flake said in a statement.


    Flake, a consummate critic of President Donald Trump, agreed to vote for the bill after securing a “firm commitment” from GOP leadership that they would work with him to develop legislative protections for so called Dreamers. Flake’s statement suggests leadership is open to extending legal status to illegal immigrants in danger of deportation due to Trump’s September decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.


    “The second was to obtain a firm commitment from the Senate Leadership and the administration to work with me on a growth-oriented legislative solution to enact fair and permanent protections for DACA recipients,” the statement reads.

    The commitment to negotiating protections for Dreamers reportedly came directly from Vice President Mike Pence.


    Flake, along with GOP Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, had also expressed concerns about the tax bill’s budgetary impact. The pair argued the dramatic tax cuts included in the legislation would expand the nation’s already ballooning deficit.


    Corker remains the only Republican in opposition to the bill as his fellow would be defectors, GOP Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Steve Daines of Montana, agreed to support the bill in the eleventh hour.

    After reading the article, it seems Pearce's bill is nothing more than a continuation of the original DACA designed by the Obama administration. There seems to be a few tweaks, but pretty much the same thing with protective status in 10 year increments.

    "The status would be good for 10 years and can be continually renewed at the end of each 10-year period, according to a press release from Pearce's office. It does not include any work, education, or military requirement to qualify."

    Yep, just like I said. Pretty much the same as DACA with a few tweaks and protective status in 10 year increments.

    Whatever the case, it's a non-starter!

    Depraved - a lousy tax bill for Americans unless you are rich and they offer to trade amnesty for that?
