Fox News is reporting The White House Thursday released an immigration plan that would offer a path to citizenship for approximately 1.8 million of the so-called “Dreamers,” along with a $25 billion investment in border security including for President Trump’s long-promised wall.
Everyone just needs to calm down, sit down and think first I really don’t think this plan is the ‘final deal’ on the immigration plan.
I think this is just a ‘beta test’ to see what the Democrats would actually agree with now look at what the Democrats’ responses are to this proposal such as a “plan to make America white again”, “racists” and “insulting” and “giving them the middle finger.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren calls it “insulting”.
“By ending DACA, @realdonaldtrump subjected 800k Dreamers to deportation. Now he wants to hold them hostage to Steven [Stephen] Miller’s anti-immigrant wish list. It’s insulting,” Warren wrote on Twitter on Thursday night. “We already have a bipartisan solution to the Trump-created crisis: it’s called the Dream Act. #DreamActNow”
The proposed bill will be unveiled on Monday. The White House wants the Senate to draft legislation based on the plan and present it earlier next month, days before government funding is set to expire.
“This truly represents a bipartisan compromise position,” said one official, speaking on condition of ‘anonymity’ “We have no doubt that this legislation were brought to the floor, it would easily garner 60 votes.”
White House policy chief Stephen Miller reportedly described the plan as a “dramatic concession” by Republicans to Democrats, who last week caused the government shutdown of the status of “Dreamers.”
‘Dreamers’ are hundreds of thousands of ‘undocumented migrants’ brought into America as children who were protected from deportation until September 2017, when the Trump administration ended the DACA program, which was created by former US President Barack Obama.
Several Democrats rejected the immigration framework from Trump as a nonstarter on Capitol Hill.
Representative Luis Guiterrez (D-IL) described the White House proposal as a “ransom” that “doesn’t pass the laugh test.”
“It would be far cheaper to erect a 50-foot concrete statue of a middle finger and point it towards Latin America. Both a wall and the statue would be equally offensive and equally ineffective and both would express Trump’s deeply held suspicion of Latinos,” he tweeted on Thursday night.
Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.), the chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, stated that the proposal is “shameful” and accused the White House of using the DACA program as a “bargaining chip.”
“President Trump is not just trying to shake down Congressional Democrats; he is trying to shake down the American people,” she said.
Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said the plan puts a “hardline immigration agenda … on the backs of these young people.”
“Dreamers should not be held hostage to President Trump’s crusade to tear families apart and waste billions of American tax dollars on an ineffective wall,” he said. Democrats had insisted on including in any spending bill protections for those immigrants covered under the DACA program.
With responses to this plan like “this is a plan to make America white again”, or its “racist” and “insulting” as well as “giving them the middle finger” to a plan you’d think the Democrats would go for and agree to, however, they are outright rejecting this plan.
President Trump knows exactly what he’s doing this is the man who wrote ‘The Art Of The Deal’. Trump knows the Democrats don’t really want to solve our immigration problem because he knows if the immigration issue is fixed and solved they would have nothing to run on in both the 2018 and 2020 elections except on the ‘Resist Trump’ platform.
Before I end this I want to add another thought that came to me while writing this article.
Even if this plan turns out to be the official plan by the White House it could actually benefit both the Trump and The Republican Party, you know for years democrats of have claimed to be the ‘party of immigrants’ and portrayed the Republican party as an ‘anti-immigration party’.
The ‘Dreamers’, ‘Undocumented Immigrants’ or ‘illegal aliens’ whatever you want to call them have been ‘slaves’ to Democratic Party for many years notice how the Democrats always turns almost anything into a racial thing even if the matter has nothing to do with race they will always try to demonize us as being “racist”, “bigots” and many of the other insults they throw at us to keep their ‘slaves’ in toe with their party.
Before I go any further let me make a disclaimer I am not using the word ‘slave’ literally it is a figure of speech, in other words I am using it figuratively.
These people have been ‘in captivity’ to the Democratic Party for years they only see one party as the ‘good guys’ and the other as the ‘bad guys’.
The Democrats know if a Republican President fixes and solves the immigration problem they could lose a huge base because if these people realize the Democrats don’t really care about them and they are only being used as ‘pawns’ by the Democrats in the ‘game of politics’ and they discover that the Republican Party actually does care about them they might come to the Republican Party once they become legal citizens.
Call it ‘amnesty’ if you want but this plan could actually benefit the Republican Party by bringing more voters into the Republican Party from the Democrats that is why the Democrats are trying to demonize this plan by calling it “a plan to make America white again”, or it’s “racist” and “insulting” as well as it’s “giving them the middle finger.”
They know that if a Republican President fixes and solve the immigration problem they will have nothing to run on in both the 2018 and the 2020 elections except on the ‘Resist Trump’ platform, they also know if it’s known that the Republican Party fixed and solved the immigration problem they will probably lose a lot of their base.
Again as I said earlier in this article President Trump is the man who wrote ‘The Art Of The Deal” he knows exactly what he’s doing and I bet you it will be a ‘great deal’ for our country.
I just ask everyone before you get your laces in knots let’s wait until we get more details on this plan from Trump himself and hopefully he’ll address it during the State Of The Union on Tuesday.
Trump tweeted this yesterday which validates the point I made in the article
I have offered DACA a wonderful deal, including a doubling in the number of recipients & a twelve year pathway to citizenship, for two reasons: (1) Because the Republicans want to fix a long time terrible problem. (2) To show that Democrats do not want to solve DACA, only use it!

Maybe Trump read my article or this was his plan all along?
