McCain, Coons, Set To Release Amnesty Plan

You never know what you’ll get with John McCain. One day he’s an immigration hawk, such as when he was running for President or Senate re-election in 2010 (when he said to “complete the danged fence” across Arizona), the next he’s pushing for amnesty for illegal aliens with no offsetting border security. This is the latter

(The Hill) Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.) will introduce immigration legislation on Monday in an effort to reach a budget deal before the federal government’s current funding runs out on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported. (it’s behind the paywall)

The bipartisan piece of legislation provides recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, commonly known as “Dreamers,” an opportunity for citizenship while ordering a study to figure out what border security measures are needed, according to the Journal.

DACA aimed to protect from deportation certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally when they were children.

Senate aides told the Journal that the plan would provide people who have resided in the U.S. since Dec. 31, 2013, with legal status and a path to citizenship.

There is no funding for the border wall. There are no changes to chain migration or anything else. This is a plan to quickly give un-earned citizenship to people who are illegally present in the United States, with a promise “wink wink” to take a look at what might be needed for border security. As if we didn’t already know. This is a Democrat plan: they get all the benefits, while nothing will be done to deal with border security and stopping illegal immigration.

And, many thought Trump’s idea with 1.8 million illegals was bad? Supposedly, this McCain/Coons plan will legalize even more.

It’ll be DOA, but, the media will discuss it a lot as “bipartisan” and something that we “really need to do.” Just watch.

Update: Team Trump is already saying “no”, and of course CNN is calling this bipartisan

The White House is dismissing an immigration deal brokered by a bipartisan group of lawmakers as a non-starter just hours before it is expected to be formally introduced in the Senate. (snip)

A White House official rebuffed the effort, telling CNN that it takes “a lot of effort” to write up a bill worse than the Graham-Durbin immigration bill, but somehow “this one is worse.”

Trump tweeted about the latest immigration efforts Monday, writing, “Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!”

Just put it in the shredder.

    The Nu Cons will have less than a year to harass and deport the DACA recipients after the March deadline. The Dem House of 2019 will not stand in the way of a bipartisan Senate bill and tRump will veto at his own political peril (if he is still in office).

  2. drowningpuppies says:

    Without leverage, Democrats appear to be abandoning immigration reform.

    • Stosh says:

      But who will commit the crimes and take the jobs “that Americans just won’t do” if we deport the illegal invaders?!?
