Tucker Warns: Trump Gets Nothing With Dem DACA Amnesty Deal

Tucker Carlson warned that if President Trump formalizes a discussed deal to make DACA amnesty permanent law, it would result in a “massive amnesty” for millions of illegal immigrants.

“Last night, at a dinner with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, President Trump apparently hammered out the framework to a deal that would protect 800,000 illegal aliens now covered under DACA from being deported. They will get to stay, and under current law, so will millions of their relatives.”

“It would be a massive amnesty, one of the biggest ever granted in American history. This is thrilling news for Democrats and for open borders advocates everywhere. In return for this concession, the president receives nothing — no reduction in overall immigration totals, no tightened restriction on foreign workers who take jobs from Americans, no e-Verify to prevent illegal immigrants working under the table, no end to chain migration. The president isn’t even getting a border wall, though he insisted he will somehow get one later, possibly…”

“The president seems confident it will work out in the end, but there’s no reason to be optimistic. The fate of DACA recipients is, by far, the biggest piece of leverage he has or he ever will have. If he gives it away for free, none of his other immigration priorities, the priorities he ran on and won the presidency with will be considered.”

“All those border security measures to keep hearing about? They’re ridiculous. They mean nothing. They haven’t worked and in any case, they’ll be rolled back instantly the next time a Democratic president wins.”

“If this president doesn’t get funding for a wall now, it will never be built, period…”
