Trump Turns Down Another Deal to Protect American Dreamers
March 20, 2018
After rescinding DACA, Trump has sabotaged every bipartisan immigration deal to protect American Dreamers. This weekend he did it again.
This weekend Trump rejected yet another deal to protect American Dreamers.
The Hill: “The source added that Democrats countered by offering $25 billion in border wall funding in exchange for a pathway to citizenship for the larger ‘Dreamers’ population, roughly 1.8 million, a move that has been supported by President Trump, but the White House said no.”
Even the Koch brothers are advocating that Trump accept the Democrats’ immigration deal.
Politico: “The Koch network has a rare message for President Donald Trump: Take the Democrats’ immigration deal. A trio of organizations supported by Charles and David Koch is urging Trump to accept congressional Democrats’ weekend offer, which would deliver $25 billion for a border wall and security in exchange for a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants, according to officials in the Koch network.”
Meanwhile, Republicans are demanding funding for Trump’s deportation force to target immigrant families.
Reuters: “Republicans are seeking hundreds of millions of dollars more for the Department of Homeland Security to expand the number of beds for immigrant detainees and to hire more federal agents to patrol U.S. borders and the country’s interior.”
