AMNESTY ALERT: WHAT??? Hoyer Claims Trump Said He’d Sign Dream Act for ‘Exceptional People’

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) claimed on Tuesday that President Donald Trump told him that he would sign the Dream Act if Congress passes a bill to give amnesty to millions of so-called Dreamers.
Speaking at the introduction ceremony for the Dream and Promise Act of 2019 (H.R. 6), Hoyer said he went with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) to the White House “about a year ago” and sat to the left of Trump while Durbin sat to Trump’s right.
“And Senator [Chuck] Grassley asked him a question. He said, ‘Mr. President, the Dreamers have not done anything wrong. The Dreamers have lived here almost all their lives. They know no other country. Mr. President, we need to make sure they can stay here,’” Hoyer said. “And Senator [Dianne] Feinstein, a Democrat, and Senator Grassley, a Republican, asked the same question.”
Hoyer then claimed that Trump said, “Yes, we need to take care of that. And then we’ll deal with comprehensive immigration reform, which we need to deal with. We need to fix a broken system.”
“And as we left, the president said, ‘You pass a bill and I will sign it,’” Hoyer recalled. “That’s what the president of the United States said… When he meets exceptional people, he thinks they ought to be here.”
