    Trump Loses Anti-Illegal Immigration Group Endorsement

    Trump Loses Anti-Illegal Immigration Group Endorsement

    By Josh Saul On 5/3/17 at 3:27 PM

    When the Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee endorsed Donald Trump in February 2016, the decision angered PAC members who supported the candidacy of Ted Cruz or believed Trump was untrustworthy.

    This week, ALIPAC President William Gheen announced those doubting members were correct, saying that Trump had “betrayed” their vision of stricter immigration laws and that the PAC would rescind its endorsement of the president.

    “It’s clear that we’ve been betrayed on the issues that gave him his greatest power to defeat his primary opponents and Hillary Clinton, which are the promises to end DACA amnesty and dangerous refugee resettlement programs,” Gheen tells Newsweek, referring to the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals program. Gheen dismissed claims by Trump supporters that the president’s attempts to do just that have been stymied by Democrats or the courts.

    “DACA amnesty and the refugee resettlement programs could be ended by Donald Trump with a swipe of his pen,” he says.

    In a letter Tuesday to ALIPAC members—Gheen says the group has 50,000 email subscribers—he blasted Trump for joining the ranks of “amnesty backers” like former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush.

    Two other anti-illegal immigration groups told HuffPost they are also disappointed with Trump’s decision to continue the DACA program.

    “It’s something that he did promise.... We still think the president should act on his campaign pledge,” Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the organization Federation for American Immigration Reform, told HuffPost.

    “What you’ve got now is, ‘The wall is dead and DACA is alive,’” Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told the website.

    The same day ALIPAC made its announcement, a tweeted photo of Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s whiteboard went viral. Under the heading, “Pledges on Immigration,” the whiteboard is marked with a list of multiple goals, including, “Hire 5,000 more Border Patrol agents,” “suspend the Syrian Refugee Program” and “Build the border wall.”

    While part of the board was obscured by Bannon’s rumpled shoulder, there was nothing visible on the board concerning DACA—a possible validation of ALIPAC’s decision.

    Does Ted Cruz support ending DACA 2012? Has Ted Cruz introduced some legislation to end it? That would sure be helpful if he could find the time.

    The answer to your question is yes and yes. Plus he was more convincing and steadfast in his argument than Trump was. However, what Cruz said and did is unfortunatly no longer relevant.

    Excerpt:


    SENATOR CRUZ INTRODUCES BILL TO REPEAL DACA

    Last week, Republican Senator Ted Cruz, whose home state of Texas is at the center of the border crisis, introduced legislation that would stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

    DACA is the Obama Administration’s program, created through a policy memo, that grants deferred action to illegal aliens
    who claim they arrived in the U.S. as minors.

    I remember that bill. That bill is dead. Why not a new bill now when we have a Republican President who will sign it? Maybe he just hasn't gotten around to it. Steve King or someone in the House also needs to put one up in the House. Maybe they want to get through the budget, health care bill and tax reform before making it a big issue.

    Perhaps because, like the rest of us, he is still waiting for Trump to keep his original promise to end DACA. If not that, maybe he knows it would be a waste of time because a new bill ending DACA would never make it to the Senate floor for a vote.

    Besides all that, it has become very obvious that Trump would not sign such a bill.
