Skip to comments.President Trump: I won’t sign the moderate immigration bill [Video]

Next week, the House of Representatives will consider two immigration bills, a bill sponsored by Rep. Goodlatte, R-Va., that conservatives are supporting and a more moderate bill with a special pathway to U.S. citizenship for DACA recipients. In an interview on Fox & Friends Friday morning, President Donald Trump announced that he will not sign a moderate immigration bill.
@realDonaldTrump: "I need a bill that gives this country tremendous boarder security... we have to have the wall, if we don't have the wall there is no bill"
Conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have pressured House leadership for months to bring up a vote on the immigration bill sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte. The bill grants amnesty to roughly 700,000 illegal immigrant recipients of President Obamas illegal DACA executive order in the form of a renewable 3-year non-immigrant visa with no path to a green card.
Pro-amnesty Republicans find this unacceptable and have threatened to force a House vote on a more liberal measure that would not require businesses to use an E-Verify system, leaves chain migration in place, and would expand amnesty beyond DACA recipients to millions of illegal immigrants. To prevent these moderates from forcing a vote and embarrassing House Republicans by passing a liberal immigration bill without voting on a conservative one, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., announced this week that both bills would come up for a vote next week.

Republicans better vote right.
they won’t, you know they won’t
He know he can’t sign it. If he did the base would desert him bigly
If the author reads the comments here, it wasn't a EO. It was policy. Trump nor Obama ever issued a eo for DACA.
Dont sign EITHER. A lot of RINO open-borders Globalists are being replaced in this years elections by MAGA Patriots. Well be in a far better place come January 2019, which is not terribly far away. WAIT!
“Moderate” how, exactly?
Most will vote for the Goodlatte bill, but enough may vote for the other one along with the Dems for it to pass. I doubt it would get to a vote in the Senate, and certainly would be vetoed.
We must rprotect those boarders in their rooms so they will be secure from the landlords.
Hmmmm... remind me to tell you a little story about people who live in glass houses, and what they shouldn't do...
Sometimes I type too fast and post too fast but I don’t use wrong words.
This leaves open the question of whether there are enough open border Republicans around to combine their votes with Democrats to override a veto. Most likely there are, but at the same time many of these pro-amnesty types want to be seen as team players once they’re up for re-election, when openly taking the side of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi against Trump won’t help them.
You just coined a term:
‘Open Border Republicans’
What I wouldn’t give to see that term in a tweet by the President.
Hope the concern trolls understand this one and maybe start to get the message that their Chicken Little imitations are tiresome....
‘Unnamed White House source’ tries to contradict the President:
...”Yes, we fully support both the Goodlatte bill and the Leadership bill. The President misunderstood the question this morning on Fox News,” the source said in an email. “He was commenting on the discharge petition/dreamers bill not the new package. He would 100 percent sign either Goodlatte or the other bill.”...
It kills me when the open border jerks want to pass “comprehensive” immigration reform. They can’t enforce the existing laws, what makes them think they can enforce new ones? They won’t and they know it.
so any Pub in the House who votes for an immigration bill Trump says he’ll veto is simply voting for it to embarrass our President ...
“This leaves open the question of whether there are enough open border Republicans around to combine their votes with Democrats to override a veto.”
i believe the answer to that is “NO”, true in both the Senate and the House ...
Trump better now sign it.
This often happens in change environments. After a succession of positive changes, the resistent elements in an organization will feel entitled to go back to old ways.
