Skip to comments.Donald Trump: Let DACA Recipients Stay; Not Amnesty
Posted on 09/14/2017 1:32:48 PM PDT by Rockitz
President Donald Trump argued that allowing DACA recipients to stay in the United States would not be amnesty. Were looking at allowing people to stay here, Trump said to reporters in Florida on Thursday.
He insisted that his deal with Democrats on DACA recipients would not be amnesty.
Were not looking at citizenship, were not looking at amnesty, Trump said.
On Air Force One however, a White House spokesperson confirmed that legal citizenship over a period of time for DACA recipients would likely be part of a deal. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted that the plan would offer them a path to citizenship.

You’re not a Trump supporter are you. Probably a Cruz guy.
I’ve been solid Trump since Walker dropped and he was my 2nd choice at that point.
” would offer them a pathway to citizenship. Heres the path: Go back to your country for 3 years. After that period has elapsed and if you wish to return to the USA, get in the back of the line and apply for legal re-entry like everyone else waiting patiently already in your country.”
Make it ten years.
Call it what you want, worker permit, student grievance, non citizen status its illegal illegal illegal. Lets not parse words...are they still here? Yes...are they here illegally? Yes....are they illegal aliens? Yes....
Why are they not gone?
You got my vote.. Adios Amigos!
We’re not going to let every registered dreamer stay. But realistically, it doesn’t make sense to throw some babies out with the bathwater. The number of highly educated/trained Dreamers in specialized fields is probably pretty small - a few thousand maybe? Maybe ten thousand? It makes financial sense to retain those assets who obtained specialized knowledge and/or degrees (especially those obtained under AA - shhhh - we can’t ‘say that’ in public) and get a return on our investment. Those that have taken our liberties, our compassion and our generosity for granted, they’re outa here (and that would be in the millions).
For a select few, extended visas, renewable once a year, with a 10 year or so wait for citizenship and voting rights, same as if they had to wait in line in the first place (so, no ‘anchor babies’ will count) would work to our advantage. And, we should subtract the number we do allow to stay from each yearly allowed quota for that/those countries of origin for the same 10 years, so we can work towards getting legal immigration, and competition for jobs, balanced again.
This is typical political double talk BS.
“Semantics...all of it.
I am so very saddened by this. Just went out and ripped the Trump bumper sticker off my rusty Subaru. The sticker that just said TRUMP 2016, long before he even had a running mate! Long before he won the primary.
In Maryland you have to be brave to drive around with a Trump bumper sticker.”
you lost me at Subaru...just kidding! seriously, you ARE brave to display a Trump sticker in MD—these people are batsh*t crazy.
I understand your sadness, truly. But Trump is still better than the alternative.
I felt more sanguine about our Trump votes after watching just 5 minutes of Rachel Maddow’s lovefest with Hitlery pontificating on the need for experienced people in the State Dept to effectively deal with North Korea. Check it out and I think you might feel a little better.
If the Wall is not well under way by election time get ready to say President Warren and VP Kamala Harris in 2020. I think that’s what McConnell and Ryan want.
Love seeing the GOP-e getting kicked repeatedly in the teeth.
This third term for Obama is not to my liking.
I’m not upset about DACA recipients staying as long as the program ends. This is nothing but a distraction from building that wall.
Trump needs to earn our support with deeds not empty promises and slogans. Amnesty is the opposite of a support-earning deed.
I know exactly where Trump going with this. Dreamers will go to head of the line to apply for work permits or legal immigration. Good!
Hillary in jail-not done
arms to Syrian rebels stop-not done
repeal of Obama are- not done
out of Afghanistan-not done
Mexican funding for wall-not done
Feel like I AM still missing a ton of the promises not done or where the opposite has been done.
If you think it stops here i want some of what you’re drinking.
come on. Just because he didn’t say deal means nothing. If they stay the next step, be it while he’s in office or after him, they’ll be legalized/
If he was a contestant on Apprentice he would have fired himself.
Sure has a lot of excuses.
And an Illegal Alien is just an Undocumented Immigrant.
Actually that is exactly the position he took during the campaign. Everyone would have to go back and get in line. Everyone here remembers that but quite a few will ignore it and call those that do a #NeverTrumper.
