White House DACA Plan Includes Path To Citizenship For 1.8 Million ‘Dreamers’

A White House immigration framework set to be introduced next week includes a path to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million younger illegal immigrants, a top administration official said Thursday.
The plan outlines the Trump administration’s wish list for a bill to replace the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era executive amnesty act that shielded from deportation roughly 790,000 illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.
In exchange for a path to citizenship — what immigration hawks would call amnesty — the White House is asking for $25 billion to fully fund the border wall, an end to chain migration and ending the visa lottery system. The provisions were outlined in a conference call between a top White House aide and House Republican staff, according to Politico.
Based on President Donald Trump’s previously released demands for a DACA compromise bill, the plan contains two big-ticket reforms: killing the the green card lottery and limiting family visas to spouses and minor children. The framework also calls for standardizing treatment of undocumented immigrants, regardless of country of origin; expediting the deportation of visa overstays, and hiring more border patrol agents, immigration judges, and prosecutors.

Yup.This is good good good. May end up being the ONLY TRULY REAL THING Trump ever accomplishes as president.

I have never believed Trump would lose support with his base, because his election WAS NOT based on tough stand on immigration, contrary to popular opinion.

It was based on celebrity, cult of personality, and the foolish propensity of some voters to believe the nonsense spouted by demagogues.

When he said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and not lose support he was right, (and it may be the only coherent thing he ever said). Sure, the haters will be mad. For about a day. (Coulter, Ingraham for a week.)

He has cover to do this, based on all of the above. He can take the hit, and R's won't. It will all be forgotten rather quickly.

Time to do it and move on. Hopefully stupid R's in the House don't blow it.

The American people WANT dreamers to stay and to become legal Americans. It's the only logical and right thing to do.

The rest of the particulars will be hammered out, and won't be perfect for either side. THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD BE.
