The Gang of Nine? Let's Hope Not: Trump Wants an Immigration Bill Involving Legal Status for ILLEGALS

There are many funny things about this — the idea of President Trump, of all people, signing amnesty into law once reduced Rush Limbaugh to fits of laughter — but the funniest might be Wolf Blitzer in the clip below citing a “senior administration official” as his source. Um, it’s publicly known that he and a bunch of other news anchors had lunch at the White House today with Trump. Coincidentally, those other news anchors are also suddenly reporting this afternoon that Trump is interested in an immigration bill. According to this tweet, Bret Baier (who was also at the lunch) attributed the new position to Trump, not to an aide.
Which means the “senior official” Blitzer spoke to is almost certainly Trump himself. Honestly, who does this sound like?
The President believes that the nation is now in a position where it can pass immigration legislation, the senior administration official said, with the need to have “a softening on both sides. There’s got to be a coming together.”
A path to citizenship for those in the country illegally would not be part of Trump’s vision for this deal, with the possible exception of “Dreamers” — those brought into the US illegally as children. The President envisions a bill where those who haven’t committed any serious crimes could stay in the US legally, holding a job and paying taxes, without having to worry about being deported…
“It has to be a negotiation,” the official said, arguing that the bill theoretically could make people on both the “far right” and “far left” happy.
“It could be good for everyone,” the senior administration official said. “People are exhausted” from debating the topic.
