WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday aligned himself solidly with conservative Republicans on immigration, criticizing a proposed bipartisan deal as horrible on border security and very, very weak on reforms for the legal immigration system.
The Senate proposal -- aimed at addressing Democrats demands for protections for young adults dubbed Dreamers brought to the United States illegally as children -- fell far short of what most Republicans believe needs to happen, Trump told Reuters in an interview.
Its the opposite of what I campaigned for, Trump said.

Thank GOD Hillary didn’t get elected!!
Bump! Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!
I like him better every day that passes by. Best thing ever happened to United States in a century to get a POTUS like Trump. If Hillary had won, it was good bye USA.
There was not much chance anything good would come out of THIS Senate.
Only 5 of them side with the citizens and the rule of law.
Cotton, Grassley, Paul, Perdue and Cruz.
We need to remove the Bush League Republicans and replace them with patriots.
Enforce the Law = “Hard Line”
“Soft Line” must be ignoring any law you don’t like just like Obama did.
addressing Democrats demands for protections for young adults
They never mention that they are demanding these people be protected from OUR LAWS!
Soft line is reducing border and interior enforcement AFTER 9/11 like George W. Bush did.
What Obama did was treason.
A. Realize their office was empty
B. Decide they probably shouldn't have come in today.
But they WILL call tomorrow morning to see see what's up ....
If he (and we) stand firm we will win! MAGA!
I feel bad because I really thought Trump was going to cave and go for some form of amnesty.
I am glad I was wrong.
I think that’s why we had to suffer for 8 years. God does that. Heck, he made the Jews walk around for 40 years, what’s 8? This is a reward for us.
Instead of DACA, I propose the “Curtailment Action for Childhood Arrivals” or CACA. In any case, mathematically, DACA = CACA. LOL!
That so-called bipartisan plan shows just how far Graham, Flake and the RATS are against the well being of our country.
Good for President Trump!
There is nothing hard line about his position the rinos are pushing total surrender and treason.
If it wasn’t for Carter, there wouldn’t have been Reagan!!
Amazing isn’t it. Enforcing law and having a border is hard line? I hope these bastards choke on their stupidity.
IMHO what he needs to do about the invasion at the Southern Border is Declare a National Emergency to deal with it.
Then take all Monies sent to the South American Countries and Build the Wall and hire Border Guards, Snipers and Armed drones to deal with those still inclined to try their luck.
Tell Congress to KMA! It was their job for the past 31 years to secure the border after Reagan’s Amnesty and they failed. They had their chance and FAILED the American People causing Rape, Pillage and Murder of our Great Citizens by people that should have never got in.
Lindsay Graham does not a bipartisan bill make.
