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.

Correct me if I’m wrong. DACA will expire in 6 months. Anything involving immigration will have to be done legally, through Congress, subject to Presidential veto. Congress has proven unable to do anything together. If nothing passes, Trump gets to blame Congress, DACA expires, and all is well.
Giving illegal aliens anything at all before giving America a wall is NOT putting America first.
It’s not putting Americans first.
Yes, I want a wall, not a fence, not increased security, but a fvcking wall like he said before I voted for him.
Sorry, no deal.
It IS amnesty.
The Trump stickers came off the car today. If he keeps this crap up there will be Dump Trump stickers on the car.
But General Kelley has talked him into good press instead of good policy.
Which was inevitable considering the beating he is/was getting. I'm sure it feels like a relief to get praise for working with the Dems.
Too bad it won't last, he just doesn't know it yet.
Ya but this isn’t looking good. He shouldn’t even need to work with the democrats. But the GOP refuse to work with Trump. What the flying fluck!
It depends on what the meaning of the word is is.
They should never be citizens...ever. even if given a green card. Its a slap in the face of everyone who came the right way.
No, the media just fooled you into believing he wasn’t.
Well, if Trump reneges on his immigration/illegals stance, he might end up being the reason we have a civil war. If he isn’t going to go all-out and fight for us, no one else will.
Hannity blames McConnell & other RINOs.
Trump is proving one thing. It really is hopeless.
Needs 60 votes...Sure does...
.. Trump remembers 1986 and won’t repeat it IMO. NWO he isn’t...
I fear they broke him. Also surrounding himself with liberal weasels and not keeping Bannon has its effect.
Of course amnesty is not an exact path to citizenship - the next president will take care of doing that...
Trump has done some pretty decent things this year.
He will do still more.
I don’t agree with him on DACA. I think it’s misguided and not justified by the facts, at all.
Has John McCain done much decent in the last thirty years?
Will he ever do much decent?
We’re not going to win on everything. I think most of us knew that going in. If he delivers on 75% of what he said he would, I’ll be very happy. I’d be happy at 50%.
Bull! Lets put the blame where it goes, the Gutless GOP. Here you have both houses and they will not do what the President wants and advance his agenda. What do you want him to do???
Okay he might have to reach out to Democrats and cut some deals. Isn’t that what he said all along he might do?
I urge everyone to quit believing every rumor that comes out of D.C., like last night’s so called deal with the Democrats that only existed in their minds.
Sorry, Mr. President. You are wrong about this. Dead wrong.
DACA pearl clutching guide
All illegals should be deported including DACA. Before judging Trump, envision what would happen once mass deportations started. Nightly videos of tearful Joey or sheepish Maria handcuffed with crocodile tears and begging to stay. Trump would be neutered because neither party supports upholding the law. Moderate voters would jump ship. And all politicians would finally have the justification they’ve been seeking to never work with Trump on anything for the next 3 years. Republicans have proven they will not move legislation already. For those believing Trump is a dupe based on daily tested and measured propaganda, they probably also believe the best way to get a pay raise from the boss is go in demanding money or else...often followed by a pink slip. Negotiations never work unless you make the other party ‘believe’ they are doing well. So instead of shining your pearls, call your Senator AND Congressman weekly and tell them what you want! Trump is doing what he can, he could do a lot more if the thousands of armchair quarterbacks bitching at every missed open receiver would get off their ass and mouth off to the people who need to hear it, our P.O.S. Congress!
