Skip to comments.Six GOP Senators Offer to Trade Amnesties for Border Wall plus Cheap Labor
Posted on 01/10/2019 3:05:22 PM PST by Hojczyk
Six GOP Senators briefed Jared Kushner and President Donald Trumps top congressional aide about a plan to swap two amnesties in exchange for border-wall funding.
The six GOP Senators included Graham, North Carolinas Thom Tillis, Tennessees Lamar Alexander, Ohios Rob Portman, Alaskas Lisa Murkowski, and Maines Susan Collins.
The Senators draft offer to the Democrats, however, also includes incentives sought by GOP-aligned business groups, such as an expansion of the H-2B blue collar visa-worker program.
Few Democrats support the H-2B visa program but its inclusion could encourage GOP legislators to ignore protests from the GOPs pro-American base. Several GOP Senators in the group also support a DACA amnesty because it would add more imported workers and consumers to their local markets.

GOP will fold...bet on it..
No swapping, please!
Ahh.... HELL NO!!
Screw em. Call it a national emergency and have the Corp build the wall.
President Trump knows every other president has been rolled on the promises of a wall in exchange for amnesty deals.
Remember...”give a mouse a cookie, and he’ll want a glass of milk”...
Alexander, Graham, Murkowsky, Hoeven, Rubio, Tillis, Burr, Lankford, Gardner, Cornyn, Hyde-Smith, Collins, Sasse, Kennedy, Shelby, Ernst, Blunt, McConnell, Wicker, Portman, Isakson, Johnson, Toomey, Rounds, Thune, Gaines, Barasso and Enzi are all Bush League Republicans.
To them amnesty is the only solution.
E verify, Why not?
I suspect a package deal is in the works.
Democrats arent going to agree to fund a border wall for nothing.
If they dont get what they want - no deal.
Democrats said NO WALL
They have to stay true to that, their base demands it
He and WE get NOTHING worth a damn!
Why should a bunch of East Coast turncoats be allowed to turn the Southwest into Mexico?
The brunt of their amnesties will be born by those of us in the West and our children.
Want your white children to go to a U Cal school after paying taxes to that system for decades? Forget it. Any Mexican kid outranks an American even if their grades are a joke.
The schools in most of Los Angeles are now 95% “hispanic”. If they were this un-diverse but filled with WASPs, the screaming would be endless.
Forget it. This kind of amnesty for a lousy $5B?
If they dont want to do a deal, thats fine. Theyll lose leverage over the outcome.
Doesn’t any repub in Congress have any idea how to negotiate? Because this is a prime example of how NOT to do it.
And just like with Reagan and ALL of the subsequent “promised” wall funding, Trump will get NOTHING at all!
Trump long ago offered DACA amnesty for the Wall, and was told where to stuff it. Dems don’t care about the “Dreamers” (and, yeah, my kids have dreams TOO, and they’re legal), they care about power - obtaining, expanding and maintaining it. More illegals = more Dem voters, and if they get their critical mass (and we’re all too close to that), then their will never again be any Republican control of Congress or the Presidency.
NO. F’ING. DEAL.
Trump should declare an emergency, and order the Corps of Engineers to build a steel-reinforced, CONCRETE barrier, ASAP. Then start up the government...with NOTHING for the Dems or the illegal-loving Pubbies.
Not knowing the future Id say they want to do us again and laugh
