The Right Worries About Trump Move On Immigration

Conservatives are worried that President Trump’s debt and spending deal with Democrats is a harbinger of things to come — particularly on immigration.
Trump’s surprise move embarrassed GOP leaders and angered rank-and-file Republicans, but seemingly left him feeling positive.
The president has been frustrated by the GOP Congress’s inability to get things done, and Trump vowed this week that he would have a “different relationship” with lawmakers going forward.
He also said the agreement with Democrats marked a new era of “dialogue” in Washington.
In a Friday morning tweet, Trump tweaked the GOP for failing to act on ObamaCare, and urged it to step up its work on tax reform.
Immigration hawks are particularly alarmed by Trump’s rhetoric, worried it could preview a turn on their issue.
At Pelosi’s urging, Trump sent out a tweet this week saying that those impacted by his decision to phase-out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have nothing to worry about. The program provided work permits to about 800,000 people who entered the United States illegally as children.
