    Trump suggests 2-phase immigration deal for ‘Dreamers’


    Trump suggests 2-phase immigration deal for ‘Dreamers’


    By KEN THOMAS and ALAN FRAM


    January 9,2018



    WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking a bipartisan compromise to avoid a government shutdown, President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that an immigration deal could be reached in two phases —
    first by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a "bill of love," then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.

    Trump held a lengthy meeting with Republican and Democratic lawmakers seeking a solution for hundreds of thousands of young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Trump last year ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which shielded more than 700,000 people from deportation and gave then the right to work legally in the country. He gave Congress until March to find a fix.

    The president, congressional Republicans and Democrats expressed optimism for a deal just 10 days before a government shutdown deadline. Trump expressed a willingness to be flexible in finding an agreement.

    "I think my positions are going to be what the people in this room come up with," Trump said during a Cabinet Room meeting with a bipartisan group of 20 lawmakers. A group of journalists observed the meandering meeting for an extraordinary length of time — about 55 minutes — that involved Trump seeking input from Democrats and Republicans alike in a freewheeling exchange on the contentious issue.

    Trump at one point suggested bringing back "earmarks," or money for pet projects requested by lawmakers, as a way to bring the two parties together and avoid divisions.

    The president said he would insist on construction of a border security wall as part of an agreement involving young immigrants, but he said Congress could then pursue a comprehensive immigration overhaul in the second phase.

    House Republicans said they planned to soon introduce legislation to address border security and the young immigrants. Trump said, "it should be a bill of love."

    That's exactly what will happen if earmarks are brought back into the legislative process.

    Yeah, I support a 2-Phase Immigration Deal. Phase1 - Pack up. Phase2 - Move out.

    Whatever Trump meant, this is an opportune time to phone the White House to tell them what you think of "comprehensive" reform (ie amnesty for 11M). WH comment line is 202
    456 1111. If that doesn't work, regular switchboard is 202 456 1414

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Our homeless do not matter

    Our vets do not matter

    Our Seniors do not matter

    Our children and grandchildren do not matter

    Our military who fought for and lost their lives for OUR freedom does not matter...and many who are disable and maimed that sacrificed their well being for this country...FOR WHAT...to be sold out by another lying politician

    Our American citizens do not matter

    Our vote does not matter

    Our healthcare does not matter

    Our voice does not matter

    Our jobs do not matter...we have been sold out over and over and over again...this will be no different allowing DACA and 30 million parasites stay, breed and take OUR future from the very hands who fought for and are loyal to this country.

    Our tax dollars do not matter to these whores who waste our money and rob our Social Security and give it to illegals, refugees, asylum liars and TPS breeders.


    IF THEY DID MATTER...THAT IS THE ONLY THING TRUMP SHOULD BE TWEETING AND TALKING ABOUT AND NOT NO DAMN AMNESTY OR A PATH TO STAY FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN PARASITES WHO CONTINUE TO INVADE OUR COUNTRY EVERY SINGLE SECOND OF EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS AND COST US BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ALL THE WHILE DESTROYING EVERY BLOCK OF EVERY CITY THEY DWELL IN!

    THANKS FOR NOTHING TRUMP...YOU MADE A FOOL OF US ALL...I HOPE YOU ARE PROUD OF THAT ACCOMPLISHMENT...BRILLIANT MOVE!

    KEEP HANDING OUT OUR HARD FOUGHT BATTLES, BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS TO A BUNCH OF CRIMIAL TRESPASSING COWARDS ON A SILVER PLATTER WHILE THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING TO EARN IT!
