Democrats Try To Make DACA Deal With Trump


A week after president Donald Trump announced through his goblin attorney general Jeff Sessions that he was going to end the DACA program, he has hinted that he might make a deal with Democrats. Wednesday night senators Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi had dinner with the president to discuss DACA and border security. Initially the two Democratic senators touted a victory of Trump agreeing to keep DACA and abandon his plans for a border wall. The next day Trump adamantly said that they had come to no deal and that he still planned to build his stupid wall. While in Florida surveying the devastation caused by hurricane Irma he said,

“We’re working on a plan for DACA…The wall will come later. Ultimately, we have to have the wall. If we don’t have the wall, we’re doing nothing.”

He also said in a tweet that he sympathized with the Dreamers protected by DACA,

“Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really! They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own – brought in by parents at young age.”

So, what’s he playing at? He knows that getting rid of DACA is a stupid mistake and will kill any chances he has of courting the Latino vote. On the other hand he wants to appeal to the rabid racists who helped elect him largely because he promised to curtail immigration. Trump is playing both sides of the fence to see which way the wind blows. If he gets a big negative pushback in keeping DACA he will get rid of it. On the other hand if he sees that people want him to protect DACA, he will. What many are speculating is that he will keep DACA IF Democrats agree to a highly strict border policy and supporting his wall. It will be interesting to see if the Democrats bite.
