Joel Pollak supports amnesty, he just wants Trump to get a good deal
Joel Pollak of Breitbart News supports an amnesty for illegal aliens, he just wants Trump to get a good deal as part of his sellout.
Pollak writes :
President Donald Trump outlined the basic structure of a DACA deal on Sunday.
The so-called “Dreamers” — illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors — would be able to stay legally in the country, but only if a border wall is built.
...Trump’s deal might be acceptable to conservatives, as long as the wall comes first and there are other safeguards, like mandatory e-verify and an end to chain migration. But Democrats seem convinced they can hold out for more.
...But the third and most important reason that Democrats are unlikely to agree to a reasonable DACA deal is that they are incapable of compromising with President Trump on anything.
...There is only one way to force Democrats to accept even a moderate compromise on DACA, and that is for the Trump administration to stick to its March 6 deadline. On that date, DACA work permits will expire, and DACA beneficiaries could face deportation. Once Democrats understand that Republicans are serious — and Trump’s decision to end protections for El Salvadorans is a sign that they are — they will feel greater pressure to negotiate.
In addition, Republicans should call Democrats’ bluff on a government shutdown. Democrats seem to think that they can win any shutdown showdown, based on more than two decades of experience. But those showdowns happened when Republicans were in the opposition and Democrats controlled the White House.
DACA is not popular enough to sustain Democrats through a shutdown. If Trump stands his ground, Republicans can win.
Unlike Pollak and Breitbart News, I've always opposed amnesty (under any name) and I'd never trade it away. There shouldn't be a need to make a deal to get increased border security. All Trump would have to do is finally make smart arguments that undercut Dem leaders to their base. He could get more border security and permanently reduce illegal immigration and stop amnesty.
Pollak should be helping Trump get to a position where he can finally make smart arguments. Instead, Pollak is trying to get Trump to sell out the USA in the "best" ways possible.
