Skip to comments.Trump issues veto threat over Senate’s latest amnesty
Posted on 02/15/2018 9:51:24 AM PST by jazusamo
President Trump issued his first veto threat of the immigration debate on Thursday, with the White House saying the plan being offered by Senate Democratic leaders and a handful of GOP rebels would make border security worse, not better.
In a statement from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House said the plan would prevent agents from going after illegal immigrants unless they arrive after June 30, 2018.
Analysts have said that creates an incentive for people to flood the border now, hoping to get into the U.S. before the deadline and it also protects perhaps 10 million illegal immigrants already in the U.S. from serious threat of deportation.
The administration is committed to finding a permanent, fair, and legal solution for DACA. But this amendment would only compound the problem by encouraging millions of additional minors to be smuggled into the United States, Ms. Sanders said. We need to solve the problem, not perpetuate it indefinitely.

Kind of a nice feeling to have an American president again, huh?
“Amnesty Don” idiots on suicide watch.
“a handful of GOP rebels”.
Way to go......President TRUMP!
is this a bill or an “amendment”. None of the bills are even close to acceptable and all are amnesty— NO AMNESTY.
It's a message to Paul Ryan -- who has already said publicly that the House wouldn't even vote on a measure that the President won't sign.
It’s a “bipartisan” amendment.
Why just yesterday, this was labeled by the lsm a "Broad bipartisan support".
trump should have a public vetoing of the bill. do it openly and with the cameras rolling. then tell these senators to stop playing games and to put together a bill that is sighnable and not dead at conception.
It was always going to be DOA. There is no bipartisan bill that will make it through both houses of Congress. The Dems don’t really want it anyway.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
POTUS, Trump, unless all four of your “Pillar” choices are approved by the House & Senate exactly as you have defined them,...veto their efforts. Case closed!!!
I heard that the Florida school shooter was a DACA baby. Any findings on that?
if the only thing in that amnesty bill that Trump objects to is an amendment to stop immigration enforcement until after July 1 of 2018, WE ARE IN BIG TROUBLE AMERICA.
put the National Guard on the border until they resolve the immigration issue - gotta stop the bleeding first
Yes, we do.
Deport them all. No exceptions.
Build the wall.
Enforce the law.
Anything less is a betrayal of We the People.
I have a solution for DACA and a path to citizenship.
Path to citizenship starts the day the first brick is laid for the wall. Once the wall is complete, whoever was here, registered and vetted will be offered citizenship. All criminals and people on full public assistance will need to go back to their home countries. No chain migration, no diversity lottery.
This gives Democrats a goal to get the wall built and gives republicans the goal to deport all illegals who aren’t registered or are criminals or are on public assistance.
The Democrats cannot say no to it. DACA illegals cannot say no to it and Republicans cannot say no to it.
For Trump this is a major win and puts the swamp on notice.

Militarize our border??? Only a ruthless dictator would do that! /sarc
