    White House aide shoots down smaller immigration deal

    White House aide shoots down smaller immigration deal

    01/29/18 06:11 PM EST



    A top White House aide said Monday that the administration isn't open to narrowing down an immigration deal ó an idea being floated by a key group of bipartisan senators.

    "No, we really think we've narrowed it down, we really do," White House legislative director Marc Short said, after being asked if the White House is open to a smaller agreement that would pair enhanced border security measures with a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) fix.

    Short added that the White House felt it had offered a "pretty strong compromise" with its immigration framework released late last week.

    The White House released the outline of its proposal on Thursday. It included a pathway to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million immigrants brought into the country illegally as children. That's in exchange for tens of billions of dollars for the wall on the Mexican border and other provisions aimed at limiting legal immigration.

    Short added the without changes to immigration laws, Congress would be creating a "magnet that just creates more pressure" on border security officials.

    Trump and a bipartisan group of lawmakers agreed during a televised meeting earlier this month to limit any immigration deal to four pillars: a DACA fix, border security, changes to family-based immigration and the elimination of the State Department's diversity visa lottery.

    But a growing number of senators are pitching an agreement that would include a fix for DACA recipients with border security. That idea, discussed during a closed-door meeting late last week, would not include a path to citizenship or changes to which family members citizens and legal residents can sponsor.

    Asked on Monday if changes to "chain migration" and the visa lottery needed to be included in any agreement, Short said: "Absolutely."

    Short's comments come after he, White House chief of staff John Kelly and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen met with Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Steny Hoyer (D-Md.).

    McCarthy, after the meeting, said there was no discussion of doing a temporary one year DACA fix.
    Cornyn added that he expected a final agreement to include all of the four pillars.

    "The president said there are four pillars, and I think we're going to have to come up with a solution that addresses all four," he said.

    The Trump administration announced last year that it was ending DACA. Congress has until March 5 to reach a deal.

    Marc Short, President Trump, John Kelly, Kirstjen Nielsen, the Koch Brothers, others are big reasons illegal aliens are rushing to cross the border. Words from the administration, dollars from businesses and groups supportive of amnesty, inaction to better secure the borders, the continuation of catch and release, the lack of serious interior enforcement will continue to do irreparable harm.

    Allowing any amnesty destroys America. We cannot go back.

    Marc Short is the Koch brothers inside man to assure that the largest possible amnesty occurs. For whatever reason President Trump decided to give the amnesty shills control over legislation.

    Wow...this sounds like an unbiased group.

    How much further will Kelly and Nielsen get rolled??

    Memo to Short: we're not stupid. Any reasonably informed person on this issue knows that the "magnet" for illegal immigration is lack of enforcement of current immigration laws. So logically, we do not need changes to immigration law as any changes would also be willfully ignored.

    Regardless of Short's inane comments, it sounds like Amnesty Don's mass amnesty "framework" is just going to get worse, especially with the likes of Kelly and Nielsen who quite apparently have little experience and knowledge of immigration politics.

    Where was Stephen Miller? Did he finally come to the conclusion that Trump's plan was a bridge too far?
