White House: Flake-Graham-Durbin DACA Bill ‘Giant Step In Wrong Direction’

A recent immigration proposal put forth by Senators Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham, and Dick Durbin fails to meet any of President Trump’s requirements for a DACA deal, White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a Monday statement.
“The Flake-Graham-Durbin proposal is not a serious solution to protect the American people but a giant step in the wrong direction,” Gidley declared, noting that “their proposal provides a path to citizenship or legalization to at least 8 million unlawful immigrants: ‘dreamers’, their siblings and their parents.”
The deputy press secretary added that “their plan totally fails to secure the border, and includes no legal authorities to stop illegal immigration which ensures a massive wave of new illegal immigration and new chain migration. The bill also maintains the visa lottery as another backdoor amnesty and chain migration program. The Flake-Graham-Durbin proposal embodies every reason Americans do not trust Washington. It puts people who are in this country unlawfully ahead of our own American citizens.”
