Uh-oh. Yet another U.S. President is making a stink about a red-line.
President Trump has made it very clear- either Congress agrees to fund the border wall, or immigration reform remains a fantasy. He’s so enamored with the idea of the wall that he’s become blind to the dangers posed by the illegal immigrants already residing in the country.
“We need the wall for security… We need the wall for stopping the drugs from pouring in,” Trump said at a White House press conference.
“’I really believe they’re going to come up with a solution to the DACA problem, which has been going on for a long time, and maybe beyond that immigration as a whole… But any solution has to include the wall because without the wall, it doesn’t work.”
Trump supporters are pleased that he’s sticking to his gumptions regarding the border, but they’re terrified that his newfound cooperative spirit will take him too far. This week Trump adopted a new strategy, calling 20 bipartisan members of Congress together to hash out details of the reform.
He’s so willing to work with the Democrats he no longer cares about ending DACA. The Dreamers can live wherever they want for all Trump cares.
“You can look at other instances. Look at what happened in Israel. They put up the wall, they solved a very major problem. We need the wall, we have to have the wall for security purposes. Security is number one. And so the answer is, have to have the wall,” he insisted.
There’s trouble brewing in the Republican party. Trump’s base is going to be pretty irate if he offers concessions to the Dreamers. True immigration reform can’t occur until the government stops its hypocritical behavior. If illegal immigration is a problem, then it’s a problem in all of its forms.
