DACA DON'S White House: Don’t be silly. Trump has always supported amnesty

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.
After all of the promises on the campaign trail, the push for more funding for immigration enforcement, the complaints about President Obama’s unconstitutional actions on immigration and the appointment of hard-liners on border security, many of us were left a bit puzzled about President Trump’s DACA comments. Rather than simply canceling the program, he give it a six month window and called on Congress to do something. But what? To pass a law officially implementing the program he was getting ready to cancel? That sounds suspiciously like… amnesty. And we know he can’t be in favor of that, right?
Well, unless Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken up the aforementioned habit of abusing hallucinogenics, we had Donald Trump wrong all along. He’s always been a fan of amnesty. (The Daily Caller)
President Donald Trump’s request that Congress protect illegal immigrants is not a change of heart, but something Trump has always supported, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.
Trump presented a hard-line immigration policy on the campaign trail and said during an August 2016 campaign speech that “there will be no amnesty.”
When asked during Tuesday’s White House press briefing about Trump’s support of amnesty, Sanders replied, “I think the president has spoken out very clearly that he wants us to make this decision based on a variety of factors. But the number one thing is that he wants responsible immigration reform and part of that is including that in the process.”
She went on to say that Trump “always wanted responsible immigration reform.”
