On Saturday, President Trump offered a fair deal to Democrats, suggesting an extension on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Act, while also offering help to temporary protected status holders in return for the $5.7 billion in funding for the border wall.
“Our plan includes the following: $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, $805 million for drug detection technology to help secure our ports of entry, an additional 2,750 border agents and law enforcement professionals, 75 new immigration judge teams…a new system to allow Central American minors to apply for asylum in their home countries and reform to promote family reunification for unaccompanied children, thousands of whom wind up on our border doorstep. To physically secure our border, the plan includes $5.7 billion for a strategic deployment of physical barriers, or a wall. This is not a 2,000-mile concrete structure from sea to sea. These are steel barriers in high priority locations.”
Adding that the plan includes “3 years of legislative relief” for all DACA recipients it will “give them access to work,permits, Social Security numbers, and protection from deportation,” plus 3 years of TPS extension.
The democrats continue to rally on with their stubbornness despite President Trump trying his best to settle on a compromise in order to reopen government.
“The Government remains shutdown for one reason and one reason only, Democrats refuse to fund border security.” – President Trump
Democrats were offered more than a fair deal yet they refuse to settle on a compromise because their hate for Trump is stronger than their will to protect and serve the American people.
Senator Chuck Schumer and Speaker Pelosi signaled that they would not accept trumps DACA deal through twitter:
Speaker Pelosi responding to trumps proposal said, “Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives. It is unlikely that any one of these provisions alone would pass the House, and taken together, they are a non-starter. For one thing, this proposal does not include the permanent solution for the Dreamers and TPS recipients that our country needs and supports.”
Speaker Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer need to drop their hate for Trump and work with Republicans in order to re-open the government. We have yet received any effort on the Democrats side.
Trump sweetened the deal on Sunday, announcing on Twitter that we won’t quit his stance on immigration even after a deal was reached to re-open the federal government.
President Trumps presidency was rooted on a promise to the American people that border security will be a top priority and that a border wall will be the solution. Democrats don’t want the president to succeed on his promise. They will do anything to keep Trump from fulfilling his promise.
As long as the vast majority of Americans support President Trump there is no doubt that Trump will secure our borders. The American people back our president and there is nothing democrats can do to change that.
