Gang of Six announces immigration agreement, White House says nothing’s done yet

by

A group of senators announced they’d made a breakthrough on immigration talks Thursday but President Trump and GOP leaders rebuffed them, saying the outlines of their agreement didn’t appear to be strong enough to win enough Republican support.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin presented their plan to President Trump, saying they’d taken care of all four of his priorities with action to protect Dreamers, more border fencing, curtailing the Diversity Visa Lottery and imposing some limits on the chain of family migration.

But they were opposed by other Republican lawmakers in the meeting who said the deal needed to be stronger.

In the end, the White House sent the members back to keep working.

“There has not been a deal reached yet, however, we still think we can get there,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin and ALL the pro DACA assoles are traitors!

  • Peter Smith says:

    These guys just don’t get it. Not “more border fencing”, a friggin’ wall. Not “curtailing the Diversity Visa Lottery”‘ end the damn thing. Not “imposing some limits on the chain of family migration”, putting an end to the procedure. And as far as “We the People” are concerned, not “action to protect Dreamers”, the “Dreamers” are illegal aliens and should be deported unless they can PROVE their worth to America by their staying.
    DACA Recipients Are Illegal Aliens
    DACA Is a Massive Amnesty Program
    DACA Recipients Are Not the Children
    DACA Recipients Take Jobs Americans WILL Do
    Some DACA Recipients are Criminals
    DACA Is Not a Law, It Is the Violation of Law
    Most DACA Recipients are Not Overachievers
    DACA Is Wildly Unfair to Americans, Most Especially Young Americans Just Starting Out
    DACA Was Already Litigated and Debated in 2016
    DACA Encourages More Illegal Immigrants
    In Most States, DACA Recipients are Eligible for Welfare Benefits
    Unless It Is Stopped, DACA Will Never Stop Growing
    DACA Ignores Some Criminal Behavior
    So where exactly is the upside of this argument? Short answer is “there is none”. DACA! NO MAS!

    You can’t score a Touch down if they keep moving the goal posts. They gave Trump what he asked for and now he wants more. This is no way to run a country.

      You’ve never run a damn thing and you’re telling Trump, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, that he doesn’t know what he’s doing. You’re not only an ass hole, you’re a complete idiot!

        Remember you are the loser who has done nothing with your life. I have run a number of successful businesses and unlike Trump never declared bankruptcy. Who can deal with a person who keeps changing the rule of the game. Trump is no better at running the country then he is at selling steaks.
