Dave Brat: White House Amnesty Plan ‘Does Not Represent Promises President Trump Made to the American People’

The White House amnesty plan to potentially give citizenship to millions of illegal aliens “does not represent” President Trump’s commitment to implement an immigration policy that serves the interests of American citizens, Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA) says.
In a statement on Monday, Brat said he could not support a draft amnesty plan crafted by White House advisers, including former Koch brothers executive Marc Short, Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and senior adviser Stephen Miller, that could give at least 4.5 million illegal aliens enrolled and eligible for President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program a pathway to U.S. citizenship.
The White House amnesty plan may capture the wishes of the Washington establishment, but it does not represent the promises President Trump made to the American people. Giving amnesty beyond DACA recipients opens us up to fraud and corruption, as those who never signed up for the program attempt to become eligible. If you ask voters in states like Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, that swung to Donald Trump, if this amnesty plan keeps his promises, they will tell you it does not [emphasis added].
As Breitbart News reported, the White House amnesty plan estimates that about 1.8 million illegal aliens will be eligible for a pathway to U.S. citizenship under their proposal. But based on estimates from the 1986 amnesty, citizenship for 1.8 million illegal aliens would only be the starting point of the White House amnesty.
