    Huckabee: Many Republicans Are Afraid Trump Will Succeed and Drain the Swamp

    Huckabee: Many Republicans Are Afraid Trump Will Succeed and Drain the Swamp

    September 16, 2017 1:21 PM

    Mike Huckabee warned that many Republicans in Congress, far from trying to further President Trump's agenda are actually afraid he will succeed and "drain the swamp."

    "I'm really more and more convinced that there are a lot of the Republicans in Washington who aren't afraid that Donald Trump will fail. They're afraid he will succeed and that he really will drain the swamp," the former 2016 presidential candidate told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday.

    "The Republicans are the ones who are stonewalling everything he's trying to get done in Congress right now," the former Arkansas governor pointed out.

    Huckabee pointed to the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program, which the president has promised to roll back. Trump gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution to allow those in the program, who were brought the country illegally as children to stay.

    "DACA is not unacceptable," Huckabee said, adding that he hopes Dreamers be allowed to stay. However, "it needs to be done legally, not unconstitutionally."

    If Republicans in Congress cannot get the job done on DACA then "there are going to be a lot of Republicans going home next year, and ... they should."

    "If he only does DACA and doesn't secure the border I think that's going to be problematic for the president and his supporters, but I don't think that's what he's going to do," Huckabee said.

    Congress needs to KILL DACA, once and for all. Put it to bed. Bury it, kill it, 100%. NO DACA DEAL.

    Amnesty Mike. A DACA deal cannot be done because democrats will want the citizenship lane for them all. It can be undone at any time by democrats to allow for family members to have a pathway to legalization and citizenship. The young dreamers and democrats will accept no less in the end.

    The 30 something illegal aliens have the socialist children and parents, the criminals who violated our borders, stole jobs, lied, cheated, hurt and killed American citizens. It is not 800,000 DACA recipients and people need to state this fact over and over. It is millions who would qualify for the Dream Act. Add in the families and it is ten million or more.

    If Republicans pass the Dream Act, there may be many going home. We are fed up.

    Exactly. Trump loaded up the deal Thursday and Friday with the wall, ending chain migration, interior enforcement, the whole big banana, and created his own gridlock with the political storm he created. Republicans would be wise to fast-track all this legislation and the budget, House is done with theirs, Senate needs to move quickly on theirs, and get as many of these good and necessary bills passed as soon as possible, so you don't even need a DACA deal to deliver on your promises.

    I don't agree. Trump has not been specific at all on the so-called deal. All I've heard him say is there will be "massive" border security enhancements in any DREAMER amnesty bill. All the things you've mentioned are things he says he wants, but those aren't things I've heard him say must be part of a DREAMER amnesty bill. Trump is just trying to cover his butt with his base right now (IMO). Everything Trump promises is "huge" ... "massive" ... "beautiful" ... "great" ... "terrific" ... "tremendous" ... "enormous" ... etc., etc., etc.

    All of it really doesn't matter anyway because nothing the liberals can offer will make an illegal immigrant amnesty acceptable.

    Well if you haven't heard it, it must not have happened.

    Oh wait, the whole world heard it. Wall, (trump press gaggle in Florida) massive border security, (trump press gaggle in Florida) interior enforcement (white house press briefing), no chain migration (trump tweet)

    Massive border security was what he said after the heat started coming down. All the other stuff came later as he was attempting to cover his butt with his base. Regardless, he still hasn't been specific. What exactly does he expect from the Democrats for the amnesty bill he wants so desperately? Why won't he be specific? Honestly, I'm guessing he doesn't even know what he wants. In the end it'll probably be more what John Kelly wants. Trump often fails to be specific and is routinely inconsistent on immigration issues.

    Why is funding for a border wall off limits? I'll tell you why, because John Kelly says so (IMO). Kelly knows the Democrats will not deal with border wall funding included. Trump's being played like a 2 dollar fiddle by the amnesty supporting folks he has chosen to surround himself with. It's sad.

    AMNESTY IS NOT ACCEPTABLE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

    Why would he want to be specific? Let Nancy and Chuck be specific.

    Yes, I agree that amnesty of any kind under any circumstance for any illegal alien is unacceptable.
