All eyes will be on President Trump this week as the Senate begins its immigration debate, with Republicans hoping the White House will play an active role in ruling out proposals he won’t accept, making it likelier he will get a bill he can sign.

The first test vote will occur Monday as senators vote to bring up a placeholder piece of legislation and then begin to offer their proposals as amendments.

How that will play out remains to be seen, but senators were pushing over the weekend to get plans ready.

The latest is an offer from Republican Senate leaders, led by Sens. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa and John Cornyn of Texas, which enshrines Mr. Trump’s four-point framework with an enforcement-heavy proposal. It would couple citizenship rights for perhaps 1.8 million Dreamers with some of the biggest enforcement changes in two decades.

    OUR PRESIDENT HAS ALREADY SAID WHAT HE WILL ACCEPT AND WILL NOT ACCEPT, AND IF THE SENATE AND HOUSE DOES NOT GO ALONG WITH HIM, IT WILL TIME FOR EXECUTATIVE ORDERS TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

    First, don’t trust the democrats to do the right thing. They are only interested in feathering their own political nests by bringing in as many ILLEGALS as possible. This is not for humanitarian reasons, nor is it to boost the American economy. It’s simply to “bring’em in, give’em a bunch of free stuff, and get’em to the polls to pull the “D” lever on election day.” It’s all about votes as Jennifer Palmeiri, former Clinton Communication Director, said in a recently leaked memo to the Democrat Party, “the Democrat’s fight for DACA is also a critical component of the Democrat Party’s future electoral success.” In other words, they need warm bodies to pull off election wins in the future. It’s critical to their success. That’s what all these Sanctuary cities are about. That’s why they’re against the Wall and aggressive deportations. Our first goal should be to build that WALL and strengthen border security. Period.

    This is for President Trump: Please do not sign anything that would allow dreamers any citizen rights. They must go back to where their parents came from and reenter the US by legal means. That is the law. We can also educate these people about the true meaning of Democracy and what the Constitution stands for. This will help influence their vote.

    DACA will neuter our culture and give the massive illegal’s vote to the Globalist Democrats. Deport them all.
