President Trump on Tuesday said hed be willing to take the heat if Democrats and Republicans can push through comprehensive immigration reform calling for a bill of love.
Trump reiterated his demand that any deal to protect the so-called Dreamers undocumented immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program would have to include funding for his border wall.

Here comes where we get screwed.
I think these people were derided as “pearl-clutchers” earlier in the year.
(As for me, I’ll keep my powder dry for right now until I see what evolves. POTUS has pulled too many rabbits out of his hat to discard him for this issue yet)
The House and Senate do like Trump and he will never get what he wants. He has to fight for everything he can and that means there has to be compromise. It doesn’t matter if the Republicans control both houses, the last year should show you that he can’t get all he wants. He will be lucky to get a few things done and that is just the way it is.
That will never happen and logistically is impossible. We have to take the best deal there is.
Some people here clutch pearls at all opportunities if something is not 100% what they want. Ill support this process.
Trump is, as he has demonstrated, the MOST conservative president in decades, actually enacting the MOST conservative policies since Reagan.
He has earned his supporters' trust. You keyboard warriors need to watch and learn how the ball is advanced. This issue will be perfectly negotiated and perfectly executed. Illegal immigration is ALREADY down 45% under Trump through just the man's sheer force of will. The wall is happening.
Meanwhile, you should all be ashamed.
I have no time for this place's whining. FR cannot hold a candle to CTH.
We are a Representative Republic. Time for all of us to light the fires and kick the tires! Call, email, write, visit, and protest our Senators & Representatives.
Trump cant do this alone. We need to stop threatening and take action.
Gosh, he’s selling out faster than I ever thought he would. There will not be a border wall if DACA is already addressed to the satisfaction of liberals in both parties.
To me, killing DACA is preferable to the wall. I believe there are more than 800,000 on DACA claimed.
Agreed. Get the Wall!
There’s no mystery why Trump announced the day before this meeting a couple hundred thousand from El Salvador should start packing. The screws will continue to tighten, deportations increased. The dims will end up giving Trump most of what he’s asking for in exchange for DACA. Then they’ll get to ‘comprehensive reform”.
Trump taking the heat? How about 300 million LEGAL citizens?
Why is there a need for a new law? No amnesty, no benefits, no birthright citizen if the parents were illegals at time of birth, no chain migration.
If all these young and not-so-young illegals are such upright educated people who are productive, then (1) maybe their own home countries prefer to keep them; (2) they will not have any problem applying for lawful immigration back into the country.
Don’t play us like we only have the intelligence and attention span of a 5 year old.
We were fooled .
He is DC. cheap labor sell out all along . Lets the Dems destroy him .
He destroyed my country .
Treasonous snake .
How so? He just said today that he is for DACA first without considering other immigration proposals.
Dont be too hard on folks. We dont need to beat each other up.
When youve been under the Democrat-Communist boot since Reagan with all the PC media crap and bad news cycles the effects of Stockholm Syndrome is easy to spot.
Our government is a Representative Republic! Time we started acting like it. You want Sessions off his butt? Get off of yours!
Okay, lets start emailing, calling, writing, visiting and protesting our elected officials! If you cant go to DC go to their local state/District offices. We stopped them last time - did we mean it? Alrighty then.
We MUST each play our part!
You must mean like Ronald W. Reagan was burned by Democrats in 1986?
There will no need to even run a Goper after 2018 .
Every big state will be Mexican .
This is treason !!
He is destroying the country.
He played us all for suckers .!!!
“Hes always said he would be for a DACA law.”
I thought he said he would repeal DACA on Day One.
