Trump pressures Republicans to take “hard line” on DACA

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, Rebel host John Cardillo joined me to discuss President Trump's attempt to make a deal with Congress on DACA and border security.

Critics like Ann Coulter are concerned that Trump will reach an agreement with Democrats allowing so-called "Dreamers" to remain in the United States. But John doesn't agree.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revoked protection from 2,139 DACA recipients since 2013 for committing crimes, Trump is cognizant of the threat illegal immigrants pose to the safety of Americans. 

Legalizing 800,000 "Dreamers" would also be a political disaster that could irreversibly turn Florida and Texas into blue states. Trump has no interest in electing more open borders, left-wing Democrats.

John suspects that Trump's long-term strategy is to warm up to Democrats will pressuring Republicans to take a "hardline" stance, so the President looks cooperative while continuing to fulfill his campaign promises.

The Dreamers should be called F D V’s.
Future Democrat Voters.

Trump isn’t going to deport people who were brought to the United States by their parents and have known no country except the United States. Nor should he.

The answer to DACA is a strict application process for EACH “dreamer”. In order to be given some sort of status, they must have NO criminal record, NO history of gov’t support, and must be legally employed (confirmed by IRS).
Trump policies are lowering unemployment levels fast, so those jobs currently held by dreamers are, in most part, not needed for Americans but can be imperative for many American businesses, especially in farming, construction, and services.
