Fundamental disputes over the scale of legal immigration and border security are stalling the push by GOP leaders for a quick amnesty deal that could allow some form of legal status to at least 1.8 million young illegals.
“We’re focused on doing what we told the American people we were going to do, what they elected us to do, and we promised them we would do,” said Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, co-chair of the House Freedom Caucus, who is facing the pro-amnesty GOP leaders in the closed-door negotiations. Americans’ goals, he said, are to:
build the border security wall, end chain migration, stop the crazy lottery system, reform our asylum laws, and deal with sanctuary city law. And when we do all those things — the President has been very clear — we can address the DACA situation.
Pro-amnesty advocates declared last week that a deal was close — but only because they were eager to sideline the many disagreements about civic security, wages and the economy which surround the promised amnesty. For example, GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo, a leader in the discharge-petition amnesty group, declared June 8 that an amnesty deal was 80 percent complete:
But Curbelo’s goals — a big amnesty and no cuts in legal immigration — are the goals of business groups who want the federal government to import 1 million new customers and workers every year, no matter the economic impact on the 4 million Americans who turn 18 each year, or the civic impact on 330 million Americans.
