Analysis of Trump's immigration plan, a racist mess

President Donald Trump on Thursday said he is "willing to shift more" on his border security and DACA demands if that's what is required to reach an immigration deal that will pass Congress in February.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) slammed President Trump's framework for immigration reform that was submitted to lawmakers on Capitol Hill Thursday.

A vote on the White House plan, while anathema to Democrats, would technically fulfill McConnell's pledge.

House Democrats quickly bristled at a White House framework that would give 1.8 million DREAMers a path to citizenship, arguing that the deal for DACA beneficiaries is cover to "implement a mass deportation agenda".

Former president Barack Obama created the DACA program in 2012 effectively shielding illegal immigrants brought to the children from deportation and offering them work permits.

So President Trump showed his hand on immigration last night.

The White House also wants to eliminate the visa lottery "and reallocate the visas to reduce the family-based "backlog" and high-skilled employment 'backlog'".

- Establish a $25 billion trust fund to pay for a wall on the USA southern border with Mexico and security improvements on the northern border with Canada.

Parents of these undocumented immigrants would not be allowed to apply for citizenship under this plan.

"I had suggested when [Trump] called that we just have four people in the room - myself, my chief of staff Mike Lynch, his chief of staff Gen. [John] Kelly and the president", the top Democratic senator said.


"Stephen Miller has said that his proposal is 'extremely generous, ' but the only community that benefits from this supposed generosity are white supremacists", said ACLU Immigration Policy Director Lorella Praeli.

Re: "Trump supports path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million "dreamers" in new White House proposal", January 25 news story.

The White House released an immigration proposal yesterday and we are not ready to rummage through the office to find a MAGA hat to burn.

"Today's DACA recipients can be tomorrow's Trump Dreamers", he said.

"America's legal immigration system has been torn apart for decades by Washington politicians like yourself who prefer open borders & sanctuary cities over law & order and popular, common-sense reforms", she wrote on Twitter, addressing Schumer's complaints. Trump tweeted. Critics said the Trump framework was not helpful to the bipartisan Senate negotiations on an immigration deal.

"It's a welcome response to know the White House is at least talking about the issue and talking about it openly", Espinosa said.

- Immediately deport illegal immigrants who cross the southern or northern border even if they are not from Mexico or Canada.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who has promised to hold Senate floor debate on an immigration measure in the coming weeks, offered praise for the outline but made it clear Congress will still craft the actual language of a bill.

For its part, Breitbart, which went to the mat for Trump in the Republican contest in 2016, is now referring to him as "Amnesty Don".

"Chain migration, visa lotteries that don't work, a lot of these situations have to be remedied before we can solve the problem because otherwise the problem's just gonna materialize again", Davidiuk said.
