    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...

    President Donald Trump argued that allowing DACA recipients to stay in the United States would not be amnesty. “We’re looking at allowing people to stay here,” Trump said to reporters in Florida on Thursday. He insisted that his deal with Democrats on DACA recipients would not be amnesty. “We’re not looking at citizenship, we’re not looking at amnesty,” Trump said. On Air Force One however, a White House spokesperson confirmed that “legal citizenship over a period of time” for DACA recipients would likely be part of a deal. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted that the plan would offer them a...
  • Confusion Over Whether Trump Wants To Give Illegal Immigrants Citizenship

    President Donald Trump says he isn’t considering giving citizenship to illegal immigrants, but his spokeswoman Lindsay Walters and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi say he is. Trump tweeted last week that he wants Congress to “legalize DACA,” a departure from his campaign trail rhetoric that he wouldn’t support amnesty. According to CNN, Walters told reporters Thursday that the Trump administration “will not discuss amnesty,” but “what they will discuss is a responsible path forward.” Walters then defined a “responsible path” as potentially including “legal citizenship over a period of time.” The White House has been using “responsible immigration reform” as...

    . . . The reaction from hawks and Capitol Hill and elsewhere, however, was decidedly negative. “That’s missing the point,” said Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian on border demands. “That’s always been my fear, that Trump would give away DACA for a fig leaf.” Krikorian said legal immigration restrictions are needed to mitigate the effects of amnesty. For instance, he said, if the United States does not restrict family-sponsored immigration, the DACA recipients will be able to sponsor their foreign relatives for residency — including, potentially, their parents, who brought them illegally in the first place. Amnesty...

    President Donald Trump said on Thursday he was close to a deal with Democratic congressional leaders on protections for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children, a development that alarmed some of his conservative supporters. Trump, who met with the top Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, at the White House on Wednesday evening, said any final agreement must include significant measures to protect border security. The Republican president added that funding for his planned wall along the U.S.-Mexican border - a centerpiece of his 2016 presidential campaign - would "come...

    President Donald Trump’s wish that Congress pass amnesty to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries could end up putting nearly 2 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship. Trump announced that the DACA amnesty program will be rescinded in March 2018 in order to give Congress time to “legalize” the program that protects roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The top House and Senate Democrats said Wednesday they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump’s long-sought border wall. The deal announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. The program provided temporary work permits and protection from...
