Trump: No Wall Funding? No DACA

Democrats just do not get that Trump is not your typical patsy Republican. When you attack him, he won’t wilt. When you make political threats, he won’t back down. Instead, he comes back harder. Republicans do not need DACA. They don’t have to do it. They don’t have to find some pathway to legalization for illegal aliens.

Chuck Schumer decided that he would rescind an offer on the wall, which was just authorization, not actual funding. The wall was authorized back in 2006, it just needs funding. And the authorization offer was well less than the actual cost of building the wall. So, the offer was a big load of mule fritters to start with. And pulling it was simply a whiny response to losing the shutdown

(Fox News) President Donald Trump fired back Tuesday night at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for offering, then rescinding, a deal to support border wall funding in return for an immigration package that protects illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

“Cryin’ Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA,” the president tweeted around 11 p.m. EST. “We must have safety and security, together with a strong Military, for our great people!”

It’d be interesting if Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan all said “well, we were interested in doing some sort of DACA, but, Democrats poisoned that well, so, we’re moving on to infrastructure. Perhaps we’ll revisit DACA in 2019.” Trump refuses to play the political game the way Republicans used to. He’s not a squish. And he seems to be putting a backbone in the GOP. If Democrats want DACA, they’re going to have to negotiate in good faith. And realize they aren’t going to get everything they want while giving back a pittance.

Meanwhile

During Tuesday’s press briefing at the White House, press secretary Sarah Sanders said the president opposes an immigration proposal brokered by Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Jeff Flake of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois.

“In a bipartisan meeting here at the White House two weeks ago we outlined a path forward on four issues: serious border security, an end to chain migration, the cancellation of the outdated and unsafe visa lottery and a permanent solution to DACA,” Sanders said. “Unfortunately, the Flake-Graham-Durbin agreement does not meet these bench marks.”

So, squish plans are a no-go.

    We’ll see what The People think of tRump next November. If tRump starts deporting “Dreamers” in March as his white nationalist base (23%ers) wants, he’ll be digging an even deeper shithole for himself.

    What’s the over-under on when Melania files for divorce from president shithole?

    Tony Perkins, 2008: “A man that will break his marriage oath will break his oath of office.” LOL. Hypocrite.

  2. Jeffery says:

    tRump is certainly a different kind of president.

    Multiple moral and financial bankruptcies.

    Lies 5 times a day, on average.

    Thrice married, for now.

    Multiple extramarital affairs.

    Multiple sexual assaults.

    Paid a past inamorata (a porn star, no less) through a secret LLC to keep her quiet

    Fvcking a porn star just after Melania gave birth to his son

    Ties with the US mob.

    Hires undocumented workers.

    Ties with the Russian mob.

    Racist by convenience.

    Grifter (tRump U, LOL)

    Ignorant of the US Constitution.

    Money launderer.

    Asshole. Vain. Pretentious. Cruel. Lazy. UnAmerican.

    Slimiest person ever to grace our White House.

    He is sui generis, to be sure. The far right base tolerates his vast moral, personal and professional shortcomings simply because he made the decision to court them and support their 3 causes: The Wealthy/Caucasians/Christians. He will support the redistribution of wealth to the already wealthy and corporations. He will deport Mexicans and slur Black people; and support white nationalism. He will support anti-abortion policies, hurt LGBT every chance he gets, and support christian privilege at every turn.

    Hypocrites.

    So tRump says, No Wall, No DACA. He’ll deport 800,000 deserving residents if he doesn’t get his way. And he wants the American taxpayers to pony up a down payment of $18 billion for starters. For a “Wall” that won’t make a bit of difference except to his massively inflated ego. A “Wall” that he promised US citizens that someone else would fund.

    It won’t take long for the populists that supported tRump to understand that he’s on the side of the economic elites (Dems AND RePugs) who fvck “the people” time and again. They get great tax breaks, “the people” not much of anything. He hopes to keep them entertained with his bread and circus act of attacking Muslims, Mexicans, the Deep State, Blacks and Hillary while he and the elites continue their brutal rape of the working classes. “The People” have put up with it for a few decades now, but there will come a time when they’ve had enough – when their flat wages can’t keep up with rent, and education, and healthcare, and car payments, and food any longer. He will keep his 23% white nationalist base (TEACH et al) until their economic suffering no longer bearable.

    If the Dems find a 50 something Bernie Sanders, he or she will be the next President. The Dems will take the House in 2018. The Senate in 2020 or 2022. It’s not hopeless for the GOP. If they’re successful in election rigging they may get the autocracy they crave. And America will continue it’s downward spiral. We are no longer the world’s leader.

      Seems Schutdown Schumer isn’t the only whiny little loser bitch on this thread.

      • david7134 says:

        The jerk is oh so upset. He is making up things and distorting truths at a rate I can’t keep up with. Hopefully he will have a stroke.

        • Jeffery says:

          We’re developing a drug that combats the reperfusion injury associated with stroke. So who knows, I may get a “dose of my own medicine!”

          And another that slows dementia, meaning there’s even hope for you!

          • david7134 says:

            My, my jeff, it sounds like you are going to be busy with those parties. And yes, I have the onset of dementia. In fact I just got out of ICU after beating septic shock that I got from a patient. So thanks for acting like an ass.

    • Dana says:

      How, I have to ask, are illegal immigrants “deserving residents”? They are breaking the law, and they will continue to break the law if they aren’t expelled. You cannot function in our society without a Social Security number, because you cannot work and cannot pay taxes, meaning that the so-called ‘Dreamers’ are either just dreaming about welfare payments — that they aren’t supposed to be able to get — or have perpetrated a fraud, using forged documents and false Social Security numbers.

      It’s not just crossing the border illegally: it’s the illegal things that they have to do to stay here.

      We do not need them here; they are a net drain on our economy.

      • Jeffery says:

        Dana,

        You may be confused.

        From the SSA website:

        If the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) approves your request for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and your application to work in the United States, you may be eligible for a Social Security number. After you get your (I-766) Employment Authorization Card, you can apply for a Social Security number.

        American DACA residents are registered with the US government. The SSA had issued Social Security numbers to 541,000 DACA residents by 2014. All legal.

        You see, we’re a nation of laws, and we change our laws all the time. It’s one of the characters of our nation that keeps us great. For now. Presidents issue orders. Congress creates laws that a President can veto or sign. Agencies are authorized by Congress to create policies and regulations. And the courts decide if the efforts are consistent with our Constitution.

        Fair Americans will not stand for the abuse of the “Dreamers” by our white nationalist minority (23%ers). Even tRump understands this reality and is forced to walk a political tightrope with his white nationalist base (23%ers) on one side and decent America on the other.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Fair Americans will not stand for the abuse of the “Dreamers”

          Abuse, little guy?

          Keep working on that “cure” for dementia, little guy.
          You need it.

        • Dana says:

          Then, clearly, when DACA expires, no more ‘Nightmarers’ can receive SS#s, and that will be a good thing.

          I suspect, unfortunately, that Congress will pass DACA, and President Trump will sign it. One can only hope that funds for much stricter border enforcement will be included. My only hope is that the House will reject it!

          Best case scenario:

          1 – The Senate passes a bill with both DACA and funding for the wall and other enforcement mechanisms;
          2 – The House strips the DACA provisions, and passes the bill;
          3 – The conference committee approves the House version;
          4 – The Senate then passes the conference committee bill, since a conference committee bill is not subject to a filibuster; and
          5 – President Trump signs the bill.

          That way, we get the wall and increased border enforcement, and DACA is kept off the books. This, I suspect, is a pipe dream.

        • Dana says:

          This means that the odious President Obama, through an executive order alone, ‘legalized’ 541,000 illegal immigrants. Fortunately, they can still be expelled; unfortunately, we won’t be able to confiscate any Social Security taxes they paid.

          • Jeffery says:

            Are you opposed to all executive orders, only those of President Obama, or only those that “legalize” illegal immigrants?

            It seems you don’t want the “Dreamers” to become legal residents. Why?

          • Jeffery says:

            Dana,

            Our assumption is that you were just mistaken or confused regarding the DACA residents forging Social Security documents. We would never assume that you were lying in an attempt to mislead others.

            As an honest broker, you could simply acknowledge your mistake before you continue your jeremiad against those you slur as “illegals”.

            And if Amnesty Don is to be believed (a risky proposition) he would sign legislation legalizing not 541,000 “illegals” but up to 1.9 million! Clearly the Teflon Don is looking ahead to Nov 2018 and sees the spray-painting on the Wall.

            Con Man ‘splodey heads everywhere!!
