AMNESTY WATCH: What Republicans Must Demand From Democrats Up Front Before Even Considering a DACA Deal

Conventional wisdom says that Democrats hold all the cards when it comes to the upcoming debate on Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
The reality, however, is that former President Barack Obama’s illegal edict to legalize undocumented youth will automatically expire in March, meaning it will be the Democrats who will be scrambling for votes to save it.
Consequently, all the Republicans have to do is sit back and make a list of the demands Democrats will have to compromise on if Democrats wish to keep DACA alive.
This presupposes, of course, that Republicans can act like conservatives and not like a bunch of RINOs that many have morphed into you over the past many years.
For example, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., remarkably was doing the Democrats’ bidding this past month, using passage of DACA as leverage before he would vote for the Republican tax bill.
Think about this. Was this Republican senator holding out to get enhanced tax cuts for small businesses, or protections for property taxpayers? No, he was placing the goals of 800,000 undocumented individuals over the needs of 170 million citizen taxpayers.
The ugly truth is, too many Republicans have been complicit in allowing the illegal immigration problem to snowball out of control. Democrats promoted open borders because they believed one day these immigrants would obtain citizenship and become an insurmountable majority voting bloc for generations to come. Meanwhile, Republicans acquiesced to ensure a steady flow of cheap labor to boost profits for the business community.
