Proposed DACA deal would give parents ‘temporary protected status’

Protest for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) September 2017 Milwaukee

President Trump publicly rejected a proposed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty deal put together by a “bipartisan” group of Democrats and RINOs that would have given parents of so-called DREAMers “temporary protected status.” Worse, the deal would have opened up to illegal aliens who are “eligible for DACA but didn’t sign up.

Piecing together the proposal is difficult because “[D]etails about the Democrats’ plan are still secret,” as explained by Neil Munro at Breitbart (follow him on Twitter), who goes on to say that “advocates say it extends the amnesty to include the several million illegal immigrants who brought up to 3.25 million illegal-immigrant children into the United States.”

President Trump responded to the proposal on Twitter, referring to it as “a big step backwards.” The plan was presented by Sens. Dick Durbin, Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Cory Gardner, Michael Bennet and Bob Menendez, all of whom are pro-Amnesty. According to CNN, Sens. Tom Cotton, David Perdue and Rep. Kevin McCarthy “pushed back at the Durbin and Graham proposal.”

Further, the “fence barrier” is not “not properly funded” according to the President, who tweeted in part (see all tweets below):

“I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level. I want safety and security for our people. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.”

NBC Capitol Hill reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell tweeted out the clearly unacceptable terms of the deal “per multiple GOP and Dem sources.” Caldwell mentions that the deal is “[N]ot yet final,” but it certainly would explain President Trump’s reaction, as well as back up Neil Munro’s reporting:

DACA: Path to citizenship for DACA recipients and those eligible for DACA but didn’t sign up.

BORDER SECURITY: 1.6 billion for fence barrier, technical surveillance, training and retention for agents. AND AN ADDITIONAL 1.2 billion for other border priorities.

FAMILY BASED MIGRATION: Parents of DACA cannot become citizens but will get temporary protected status.

VISA LOTTERY: Some of the 50k slots will be used for people in the country who have lost their temporary protected status and some will be used for low immigration countries.

President Trump must resist any DACA deal, as Democratic strategists know that passing DACA is crucial for the Democrats “long-term electoral prospects,” as explained in a memo by Jennifer Palmieri and Navin Nayak of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

As previously proven at, DACA is about the vote.
