Donald Trump willing to trade DACA for the border wall?

December 29, 2017

  Back in September Donald Trump signed an Executive Order ending DACA in six months. Despite the protestations of the left, what the President did was grant the Congress six months to work out a permanent DACA solution through legislation. Donald Trump wants to make DACA permanent

President Donald Trump repeated that he wanted to sign a deal on DACA, urging Congress to send him a bill to make it happen.

“Congress, I really believe, wants to take care of this situation,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One. “I really believe it — even very conservative members of Congress.”

He appeared willing to negotiate with Republicans and Democrats on a DACA solution — even willing to add border security funding to help sell the measure to offer amnesty to DACA recipients.

“I’d like to see something where we have good border security, and we have a great DACA transaction where everybody is happy and now they don’t have to worry about it anymore,” he said.

“I’d like to see a permanent deal, and I think it’s going to happen,” he said, pointing to momentum on the issue from both Republicans and Democrats. “I really believe that Congress is going to work very hard on the DACA agreement and come up with something.”

  Today Donald Trump reiterated that he is willing to negotiate on DACA in return for the border wall. Here is what he tweeted:

  So Donald Trump is willing to sign a permanent DACA bill, as he stated back in September, but he wants something in return. This seems like a sound negotiating tactic but the question is; will the Democrats, and the establishment Republicans for that matter, be willing to negotiate on the border wall in return for granting amnesty to millions of children of illegal immigrants, or would they rather see them deported so they can run on this issue in 2018?

  Personally I believe they prefer the latter and if this is true it will be obvious the Democrats care more about their own futures than they do about the futures of the children they claim to care so much about. The Democrats have become the party of “no” and I do not see anything changing any time soon.

    We need a security fence on our southern border. Mexico is fast becoming a failed Narco-state that will threaten our national security. I also read the article posted below the other day and everynone needs to be aware that the southern border is a gateway for entry into the US of not only Mexicans, but every other alien.

    What annoys me is a certain group of Senators are willing to deny Americans security, but have no problem with Israel having a security fence and using its military to enforce border security. Also Israel will not accept any Syrian refugees and these Senators are fine with that. They want more aliens to live off the backs of working Americans.

      I couldn’t agree more. Maybe trading DACA for the wall is the way to go but I fear they will get DACA and then the wall will never be built.

        My sentiments exactly Steve. Although we can build skyscrapers with basements reaching depths of hundreds of feet, while we can build thousands of miles of concrete highways, while we can erect thousands of mIles of sound barrier walls along our highways, we are unable to build a security wall on our southern border. And if and when a wall should go up the cartels should have little trouble penetrating the US-Canadian border which most assuredly they already have alternate plans for in the event….

        The cartels have already penetrated the existing.

        You are right Peter, it isn’t an issue of not being able to do it but rather an issue of not being willing to do it.
