Trump Offers DACA Extension For Wall Funding, Possibly Even Blanket Amnesty
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
On Saturday, January 19, 2019, President Trump offered to cede ground on an extension (extending three years of legal status to 700,000 young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children and 300,000 refugees whose temporary protected status will expire.) on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Act, $800 million for humanitarian aid on the Southern border, and $805 million drug detection technology in exchange for $5.7 billion funding for the border wall. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agreed to bring the deal to the Senate floor this week, but Nancy Pelosi dismissed the deal and demanded that the President Trump authorize an end to the government shutdown before sitting down at the negotiating table with Congressional Democrats. Other Democratic members considered the plan a “non-starter” or “more hostage taking” or “non-serious” and accused the President of simply re-issuing a deal Democrats and members of Congress rejected two years ago at the beginning of Trump’s tenure as President. Trump addressed Democrats in an address from the White House, accusing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer of refusing to come to the negotiating table to end an ongoing partial government shutdown, crossing the one-month mark this week.
On Sunday, January 20, 2019, Trump even suggested that he may be willing to consider a blanket “amnesty” for illegal immigrants living inside the United States, but only in return for a “bigger deal”.
