Center for Immigration Studies Director Mark Krikorian says President Donald Trump’s list of pro-American immigration priorities “make it less likely” that the White House will sign off on any deal that simply gives outright amnesty to illegal aliens.
In a piece by Krikorian, the immigration reformer says Trump is the only Republican administration out of the 2016 GOP presidential candidates who would have put forward the list of immigration priorities while also shifting the burden to shield 800,000 illegal aliens covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program onto House and Senate Democrats.
First of all, this list, even if just theoretical, is better than anything ¡Jeb! or Rubio or even Cruz would have come up with. And if you’re going to negotiate, you don’t start by offering a proposal that’s preemptively watered down.
