Dreamer to DEMS: ‘Stop using us a PAWNS’ as he praises TRUMP’s immigration leadership

(National SentinelIdentity Politics: “Dreamer” Hilario Yanez complimented President Donald J. Trump for his leadership during an interview on Fox News Saturday while chastising the Democratic Party for using him and others like him as political “pawns.”

“At the end of the day, here’s a guy who wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for myself and, you know, really make a difference in my life,” Yanez said of the president.

“I’m for that. Also, I believe we need to have border security so this doesn’t happen again,” he added.

“And if a wall is necessary to provide another layer for border security to do their job in a safe and responsible manner, then, you know, I think it’s necessary to fund it,” he continued.

“The diversity lottery — I think it’s outdated, I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus on skills so they can contribute to the American economy,” Yanez said.

He also blasted Democrats, saying he is “frustrated” by their unwillingness to work with the president on his immigration reform plans while using people like him as political “pawns.”

“The Democratic leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, really have no clear message,” he argued. “We have been confused, I think at the end of the day they have been using us as pawns.”

“We should have never shut down the government over DACA. We should have never held our American people and our military hostage,” he said, noting that Democrats opted not to solve the DACA problem when they had control of Congress.

DACA refers to Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, a program implemented via executive order by President Obama in 2012. The order was set to be challenged by about a dozen states as an unconstitutional change to immigration law before Trump rescinded it in September.

He gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix for the program. That deadline is March 5.

Yanez said he is proud to be in the United States and would “do anything to serve this country, to die for this country.”

“All I need is a chance,” he concluded.

If Congress doesn’t pass DACA legalization, then Dreamers will…LEAVE

(National SentinelAdios, America: A group of so-called “Dreamers” — illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as children by their parents — is threatening to self-deport if Congress fails to pass legislation legalizing their presence inside the country.

In an interview with CNN, one of the Dreamers, Alex Velez, said, “I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” claiming that she would prefer to depart the country on her own terms than wait for the United States to collect and deport her.

She and others like her believe that by self-deporting their absence will be noticed by Americans and missed.

“Velez and her sister claim they own businesses, pay tuition, and hold jobs, and that America has a duty to keep them here in order to maintain their contributions,” The Daily Wire reported.

Both girls are from Venezuela, a country that is currently collapsing under the Marxist regime of President Nicolas Maduro.

President Obama implemented the Dreamers plan — formally known as Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — in September by executive order. Critics at the time decried the order, claiming it was an unconstitutional change to immigration law, which only Congress can do.

As many as 10 states lined up to challenge DACA in federal court. As such, President Donald J. Trump rescinded the order in September and gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

That deadline is March 5.

Study: Welfare for FOREIGN refugees costing U.S. taxpayers BILLIONS of dollars

(National SentinelAmerica First: A new study appears to validate President Donald J. Trump’s claims that taxpayers are increasingly on the hook to care for refugees who are brought into the country and resettled.

The study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that foreign refugees are being given about $867 million in welfare benefits every year.

In all, taxpayers are billed about $1.8 billion for the full cost of resettling foreign refugees every year, the study found. And after five years, American taxpayers will have spent about $8.8 billion on resettling foreign refugees.

“Using the most recent admissions figures, data on federal and state public assistance programs, and information from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), our analysis found:

  • The cost per refugee to American taxpayers just under $79,600 every year in the first five years after a refugee is resettled in the U.S.;
  • In 2016, the State Department spent nearly $545 million to process and resettle refugees, including $140,389,177 on transportation costs;
  • Of the $1.8 billion in resettlement costs, $867 billion was spent on welfare alone;

  • In their first five years, approximately 54 percent of all refugees will hold jobs that pay less than $11 an hour;
  • $71 million will be spent to educate refugees and asylum-seekers, a majority of which will be paid by state and local governments.
  • Over five years, an estimated 15.7 percent of all refugees will need housing assistance, which is roughly $7,600 per household in 2014 dollars.”

“It is important to note that this analysis does not address the costs associated with any incurred national security and law enforcement costs associated with some refugees who pose a threat,” the study continued.

“The total price of additional vetting and screening expenditures, law enforcement and criminal justice costs, and federal homeland security assistance to state and local agencies is hard to quantify,” it said.

Democrats have long argued that refugees and immigrants do not qualify for federal welfare benefits. But FAIR’s study proves otherwise.

Since 1980, the U.S. has admitted more than 3.5 million foreign refugees, with nearly 100,000 refugees arriving in 2016 under former President Obama.

FO-300x250-1

Trump, who has been critical of U.S. refugee resettlement programs, lowered the number of refugees admitted to the country, reducing the annual flow of refugees by 70 percent in his first year in office, as Breitbart News reported.

Trump to DEMS on DACA: ‘Blame, complain, obstruct!’

(National SentinelImmigration Deformed: President Donald J. Trump on Thursday tweeted out a reminder to Congress that the March 5 deadline he gave them to come up with a legislative fix to the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is fast approaching.

In a tweet, the president also laid the blame for the lack of a deal squarely on Democrats.

“March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Democrats are doing nothing about DACA. They Resist, Blame, Complain and Obstruct – and do nothing. Start pushing Nancy Pelosi and the Dems to work out a DACA fix, NOW!” he tweeted.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/959031505145212928

The White House has offered a plan that provides a 12-year path to citizenship for some DACA recipients, but also calls for $25 billion for the president’s border wall, ends so-called “chain migration” and scraps the Visa lottery program, replacing it with a merit-based system.

Democrats have rejected the plan out of hand. They have decried its long-term cuts to the immigration system and pledging not to allocate funds for a border wall.

Trump has repeatedly said, however, that without border wall funding and other provisions, he won’t approve any DACA legislation that would give those recipients citizenship.

In a single tweet, Trump BLOWS AWAY entire Dem narrative on DACA

(National SentinelImmigration Deformed: Last week the White House announced an immigration reform plan that would include eventual citizenship for some 1.8 million people, most of whom remain in the country illegally under a policy implemented by President Obama.

The plan hasn’t been well-received by many of President Donald J. Trump’s supporters because it appears to go against pledges he made during his campaign to deport people in the country illegally.

But Trump on Saturday tweeted out his rationale for allowing the so-called “DACA” recipients a lengthy path to citizenship: It would remove a key wedge issue Democrats have long used to extract concessions from Republicans.

“I have offered DACA a wonderful deal, including a doubling in the number of recipients & a twelve year pathway to citizenship, for two reasons: (1) Because the Republicans want to fix a long time terrible problem. (2) To show that Democrats do not want to solve DACA, only use it!” Trump tweeted.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/957462746060206080

That said, the president isn’t offering something for nothing. His plan includes $25 billion in funding for his proposed border wall; an end to chain migration; and an end to the diversity visa lottery program.

Obama, via executive order, implemented the DACA program in June 2012. Trump rescinded it in September, giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

Trump said at the time he believed the program violated the Constitution.

Dems cry ‘RACISM’ over White House DACA compromise bill; multicultural MAJORITY of voters cry ‘WE WANT IT’

(National SentinelTone Deaf: A majority of Democrats have already come out against what is being billed as a potential “DACA compromise” from the White House that the administration believes will be enough to get the plan over the Senate’s 60-vote filibuster threshold.

But a number of Democrats have accused the plan of being racist, authored by “white supremacists” in the administration.

“Let’s call this proposal for what it is: a white supremacist ransom note,” United We Dream, the largest “immigrant youth network” in the country,  said in a statement. “Trump and [White House aide] Stephen Miller killed DACA and created the crisis that immigrant youth are facing. They have taken immigrant youth hostage, pitting us against our own parents, Black immigrants and our communities in exchange for our dignity.”

“It would be far cheaper to erect a 50-foot concrete statue of a middle finger and point it towards Latin America,” tweeted racialist Trump critic Rep. Luis Gutierrez of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Thursday afternoon. “Both a wall and the statue would be equally offensive and equally ineffective and both would express Trump’s deeply held suspicion of Latinos.”

But those opinions are far outside of those held by a majority of Americans, regardless of ethnicity.

Survival gear

The Daily Caller reported:

A Harvard-Harris poll released earlier this week found that 81 percent of voters support reducing annual immigration from its current level of more than 1 million per year, including 63 percent who want it cut by at least half.

Nearly 70 percent of all voters think the green card lottery, which randomly allots 50,000 immigrant visas to people from countries with low immigration to the U.S., is a bad idea. That figure includes 62 percent of Democratic voters, 61 percent of Hispanic voters, and 57 percent of black voters, according to the Harvard-Harris Poll.

As for border security, the administration’s proposal to build a physical wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border has struggled to crack 50 percent support among all voters. But a majority of voters — 54 percent — support building a “combination of physical and electronic barriers” across the southwest border. That description lines up with the public statements of top administration officials, including Trump himself, who have conceded that a contiguous border wall is not necessary.

Finally, rolling all of the border security and immigration reforms into a deal that gives DACA recipients a path to citizenship, as the White House immigration framework does, is an overwhelmingly popular plan. The Harvard-Harris poll found that two-thirds of all voters favor such a deal, including 68 percent of Hispanic voters and 64 percent of black voters.

Reports have noted that President Donald J. Trump is supportive of the plan, which would allow DACA recipients to “morph” into citizens over a decade. But there’s no indication yet what the final legislation would look like.

Trump’s plan for ‘some’ DACA recipients: ‘Morph’ into citizens but NOT quickly

(National SentinelImmigration Reform: President Donald J. Trump appeared to soften his tone toward so-called “Dreamers” on Wednesday, suggesting to reporters that he would back a plan that would allow some of them to “morph” into citizens over a period of years.

“We’re going to morph into it, it’s going to happen over a period of 10-12 years,” Trump said, when asked if an immigration deal will include a pathway to citizenship for the illegal immigrants previously covered under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program.

“If somebody’s worked hard, if they’ve done a great job, it gives you an incentive to do a great job,” Trump said. “They’ve worked hard, They’ve done terrifically, whether they have a little company, or whether they work, whatever they’re doing, if they done a great job, I think it’s a nice thing to have the incentive after a period of time to become a citizen.”

Trump signed an executive order in September countermanding President Obama’s EO establishing the program. He gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

Reports have said that a bipartisan Senate plan to offer full citizenship to DACA recipients on a much quicker timeframe that also did not include enough concrete border security measures was rejected out-of-hand by the president.

Trump said when he signed his order last fall that he empathized with DACA Dreamers, but that Congress should have been permitted to address the issue via legislation, not through presidential executive action.

Obama’s EO was set to be challenged by nearly a dozen states as unconstitutional before Trump ended the program.

A federal judge in the liberal Ninth Circuit has since issued a stay, banning Trump’s order  from taking effect until lawsuits aimed at keeping DACA in place work their way through federal courts.

“Terming the government’s decision to end DACA ‘arbitrary and capricious’ and based on a flawed legal premise, Judge William Alsup ordered that the program must continue to renew applications from those previously covered until lawsuits regarding those affected are resolved, even though new applications for Dreamer status did not have to be processed,” Jurist reported.

But on Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the Department of Justice’s request for an expedited review of the lower court’s order.

As for Trump’s overall approach to immigration, reform advocates have praised his administration’s ongoing efforts to crack down on others in the country illegally and to rein in sanctuary cities.

Republican Study Group wants this DACA bill, but it’s the one DEMOCRATS will HATE the MOST

(National SentinelImmigration Deformed: The 150-member Republican Study Committee is pushing House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to hold a vote on a bill involving illegal immigrations currently covered under provisions of the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals policy, or DACA.

But it’s likely the one bill Democrats will oppose the most.

As reported by The Daily Caller, the measure, authored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, will grant legal status to certain younger illegal immigrants in exchange for a host of conservative immigration reforms.

They include: Funding for President Donald J. Trump’s border wall; limits on chain migration; and an end to the diversity visa lottery, which critics say favors unskilled poor over skilled foreigners who can contribute better to American society.

The bill has emerged as a White House favorite. The RSC’s steering panel voted to support the measure and is now calling for a full floor vote.

“The Securing America’s Future Act is the framework to strengthen border security, increase interior enforcement and resolve the DACA situation,” the steering committee said in a statement, according to CNN.

“We believe an eventual stand alone floor vote is essential. We oppose any process for a DACA solution that favors a backroom deal with Democrats over regular order in the House,” the RSC said.

The House measure comes as moderate Republicans and Democrats work out a deal of their own on DACA in the upper chamber that isn’t likely to pass muster with the White House.

As a compromise for Democratic support for a three-week government funding bill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., agreed to open floor debate on DACA if a deal is not made in the next government funding bill due Feb. 8.

As TheDC reported further:

The Securing America’s Future Act — authored by GOP Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Mike McCaul of Texas, Raul Labrador of Idaho and Martha McSally of Arizona — goes beyond the Trump administration’s DACA demands and tacks on mandatory e-Verify, punishments for sanctuary cities, tighter asylum standards, and significant cuts to legal immigration levels. It has been endorsed by groups that favor tighter limits on immigration, such as the Center for Immigration Studies and Numbers USA.

The bill does not have backing from some moderate House GOP members because it doesn’t offer a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, just renewable legal status.

“North Carolina Rep. Mark Walker, who leads the RSC, says the bill will likely need some modifications to get to a majority of 218 votes. But he believes House leadership should use it as a starting point for DACA negotiations,” TheDC reported.

Trump celebrates DEMOCRAT cave-in over govt. shutdown WITHOUT deal for DACA: ‘Only if it’s good for America’

(National SentinelMoving On: President Donald J. Trump praised Democrats for voting in favor of a three-week government funding extension to reopen a shuttered federal government, but warned that no “Dreamers” deal would be made unless it benefitted the country.

“I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

He added that he would continue working with lawmakers on an immigration reform measure that dealt with so-called DACA recipients, but only if Democrats agreed to his terms.

“We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country,” he said.

The White House revealed that Trump met with Senate Republicans to discuss “responsible” immigration reform after the Senate voted to fund the government.

Sen. Rand Paul SCHOOLS Dems on why NO immigration deal is possible

(National SentinelInsulting: Sen. Rand Paul told NBC News‘ Chuck Todd on Sunday that Democrats are making any immigration deal impossible with their constant insulting of President Donald J. Trump.

Democrats and many in the establishment media have called the president racist over his alleged comments last week during negotiations in the White House over an immigrate reform bill that some parts of the world are “sh*tholes.”

“You can’t have an immigration compromise if everyone is out there calling the president a racist,” the Kentucky Republican said. “They’re actually destroying the setting… in which anything meaningful can happen on immigration.”

“Some people in the media have just gone completely bonkers with ad hominem on the president,” he said elsewhere in the interview.

Paul explained further that there would have been less controversy if the president had used different language such as “economically poor countries.”

But, he went on to note that if allowed in, hundreds of millions of people from around the world would come to the United States to live because it is a much better place with far more opportunity than their own countries.

Todd said that allowing immigrants from all over the world into the U.S. is “the story of our country.”

Paul agreed, but noted that the U.S. could not take in anyone and everyone because it simply is not practical.

Trump spoke to reporters Sunday evening at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, in which he defended himself against allegations that he is racist.

“No, no, I’m not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you,” he said.

When OBAMA used vulgar language, Rolling Stone thought it was COOL

(National SentinelHypocrisy: The establishment press and Democrats heavily criticized President Donald J. Trump last week after he allegedly used strong language to describe some poor countries.

According to multiple reports, Trump called certain countries “sh*tholes” when discussing an immigration reform bill with members of Congress in the Oval Office.

However, a December 2012 profile of “presidential profanity” by Rolling Stone presented similar language used once by President Obama in a far less critical manner (Warning: Strong language ahead).

“Our 44th president has a very vivid vocabulary. Obama famously called Kanye West a ‘jackass,’ and on the audiobook version of his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, you can hear the future president mimicking an old high-school friend who evidently knew his Richard Pryor: ‘You know that guy ain’t shit. Sorry-ass motherfucker ain’t got nothing on me.’ But it was in the pages of Rolling Stone that Obama really drew the ire of the pious, calling opponent Mitt Romney a ‘bullshitter.’ Sometimes the dirty word is the most precise,” said Rolling Stone‘s profile of Obama.

“That’s a profoundly different approach to the topic, isn’t it?” The Gateway Pundit observed. “It sounds like they’re saying Obama was smart and cool for using such language.”

There is some question as to the accuracy of Trump’s words. The president has admitted using “tough” language, but there is a conflict among lawmakers who were in the room at the time.

“I’m telling you he did not use that word…and I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation,” Sen. David Purdue, R-Ga., said, after first saying he couldn’t recall.

“I do not recall the President saying these comments specifically,” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said.

“You’ve seen the comments in the press, I’ve not read one of them that’s inaccurate … He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Iowa, said.

Trump tweets following ‘s**thole’ comment: ‘My duty is to protect the COUNTRY’

(National Sentinel) Owning It: President Donald J. Trump on Friday owned up to tough language he used earlier this week during negotiations with lawmakers regarding an immigration bill, saying that Democrats are not being reasonable in their negotiations with him and Republicans.

“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!” the president tweeted, in reference to the Obama-era Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program he has rescinded.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/951793123985973248

The president, among other things, wants to end chain migration, a broken immigration lottery system, and importation of migrants from some of the world’s poorest countries.

“The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly,” he tweeted,

“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. I want to fund our military, not do a Dem defund,” he added.

“Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards. The Dems will threaten ‘shutdown,’ but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. Get smart, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the president said.

Politicians from both parties, the establishment media, and leaders from around the world have reacted negatively to comments Trump reportedly made during discussions with Democrats in the White House.

‘Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?” Trump reportedly said at one point, as Democrats pushed him to reverse plans to end “Temporary Protected Status” for migrants from nations like Nicaragua, Haiti and El Salvador who came here — some more than a decade ago — following natural disasters.

Others defended the president. Fox News host Jesse Watters said that’s how the “forgotten men and women” of America talk.

STATS: Non-citizens committing disproportionate share of federal CRIMES; NO on DACA

(National Sentinel‘Illegal’ Immigrants: A newly released report from an immigration reform group found that illegal aliens account for an outsized portion of all federal crimes, lending further support to critics of Democrats’ push to legalize DACA recipients.

The Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for a reduction in legal immigration and pushes for assimilation of the current immigrant population in the U.S., said it found that of those convicted of federal crimes between 2011 and 2016, 44.2 percent were not U.S. citizens.

If immigration crimes are excluded, 21 percent of convicts were not U.S. citizens – 2.5 times the non-citizen share of the population, CIS analysts — who relied on U.S. Sentencing Commission data — said.

“These new numbers show that, at least at the federal level, non-citizens are more likely to commit crimes than non-citizens,” Dr. Steven Camarota, the center’s director of research and author of the analysis, said.

“Of course, it is hard to speak unequivocally about immigrant crime in general as states and localities do not systematically track the country of birth, citizenship, or legal status of those they arrest, convict, or incarcerate,” he noted further.

He said that most lawbreaking occurs at the state and local level, and as such, it’s not practical to simply extrapolate generally about illegal immigrant federal crimes.

“Nonetheless, federal law enforcement is still enormous, with 312,000 people (67,000 of them non-citizens, both legal and illegal) sentenced in the federal courts between 2011 and 2016, excluding immigration violations,” he wrote in his analysis.

“And in the federal system, where we do have good data, non-citizens account for a disproportionate share of those who are sentenced for many different types of non-immigration crimes.”

The areas where non-citizens account for a much larger share of convictions than their 8.4 percent share of the adult population include:

  • 42.4 percent of kidnapping convictions;
  • 31.5 percent of drug convictions;
  • 22.9 percent of money laundering convictions;
  • 13.4 percent of administration of justice offenses (e.g. witness tampering, obstruction, and contempt);
  • 17.8 percent of economic crimes (e.g. larceny, embezzlement, and fraud);
  • 13 percent of other convictions (e.g. bribery, civil rights, environmental, and prison offenses); and
  • 12.8 percent of auto thefts.

The report comes as President Donald J. Trump and Congress work on legislation pertaining to the fate of DACA, or Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, an Obama-era policy initiated by executive order that protected some 700,000-800,000 illegal aliens brought into the country as children by their parents.

Obama implemented the policy in 2012, but Trump rescinded it in September, giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

A federal court on Tuesday issued a temporary injunction against rescinding the program until lawsuits filed by outside groups in support of keeping it in place work their way through the legal system.

As for the fate of DACA, Trump met with Republican and Democratic leaders at the White House on Tuesday to discuss immigration reform that was open to reporters. Democrats are pushing for a “clean” DACA bill that legalizes those who fall under the policy, with an eventual path to citizenship.

But that clashes with Trump’s campaign pledges, where he promised to deport DACA recipients and all illegal aliens, as well as build a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Conservative pundits reminded the president of his pledges throughout the day, with one — Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson — going so far as to question why Trump ran if he’s not going to push for the immigration reform measures he promised on the campaign trail.

“Amnesty for DACA recipients is the only leverage the White House has. Once the president agrees to let them jump to the head of the line, ahead of millions of other people hoping to come here legally, the negotiation is over,” Carlson said.

“At that point, why would Democrats agree to anything? Ending chain migration, the diversity lottery, supporting a merit based system that might actually help America? No chance.”

Tucker Carlson to Trump: ‘Not allowed to blow’ DACA, overhaul of ENTIRE immigration system

(National SentinelImmigration Reformed: On his Tuesday evening program, Fox News host Tucker Carlson took President Donald Trump to task for appearing to agree to an immigration bill that would allow DACA recipients a clear path to citizenship, in exchange for nothing from Democrats who are pushing for that very thing.

“Congress is full of people from both parties who believe that the point of our immigration policy is to provide cheap labor to their donors and to atone for America’s imaginary sins against the world,” Carlson said.

“They couldn’t care less about immigration’s effect on you or your family–these are the same people the president now says he trusts to write the immigration bill, the one he will sign no matter what it says. So what was the point of running for president?”

Continuing, the Fox News host noted, “You will remember the president also ran on his skills as a negotiator, and he clearly has skills as a negotiator. But where were they today?

“The president signaled he’d be happy to legalize hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants now and that at some point in the future tackle all that other stuff like making sure they can’t bring millions of their relatives from the third world along with them. That’s not much of a negotiation,” he said.

“Amnesty for DACA recipients is the only leverage the White House has. Once the president agrees to let them jump to the head of the line, ahead of millions of other people hoping to come here legally, the negotiation is over,” Carlson added. “At that point, why would Democrats agree to anything? Ending chain migration, the diversity lottery, supporting a merit based system that might actually help America? No chance.”

The hosted noted further, “The Democrats’ goal is to import more Democratic voters, and by any means necessary. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base on immigration–that’ll definitely happen–it is over.

“Say goodbye to borders, they are done. Keep in mind that the top Democrat in the house recently thanked illegal aliens for sneaking into this country. That’s how Democrats feel and they’re not pretending anymore,” he said.

Carlson then used a baseball analogy to describe what it means to be a supporter of the president.

Being a Trump voter isn’t always easy, it’s like rooting for the underdog in baseball, the old Chicago Cubs. On one level there is pride, the pride that comes from doing something that fashionable people consider insane, and that’s a good feeling.

“But there’s also some disappointment along the way and honestly, there is some embarrassment,” he continued. “But you silently bear it because you know that when they finally win the World Series it will be worth everything you went through. Every sarcastic dig from your brother-in-law at Thanksgiving will seem small by comparison. In the Trump presidency, the World Series is this immigration bill.

“It’s the big payoff, the whole point of the exercise, and they’re not allowed to blow it,” he concluded.

Tucker Carlson warns: ‘Caving to Dems on immigration is suicide for GOP’

(National SentinelImmigration ‘Reformed’: On his Friday evening program, Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a blunt warning for majority Republicans in Congress: Siding with Democrats to legalize hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens would amount to political “suicide.”

During his program, Carlson reviewed several proposals made by GOP lawmakers on how best to handle illegal aliens who are currently protected from deportation under former President Obama’s “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” policy, or DACA.

President Donald J. Trump rescinded the executive order in September but gave Congress six months to produce legislation dealing with those in the U.S. who qualified under the program.

Among the proposals now being offered by Republicans is an expansion of amnesty that opponents like Carlson say will be a death knell for the party.

“A number of Republican senators are prepared to cave completely to Democrats on this question agreeing to amnesty with no serious concessions in return,” Carlson said.

“One proposal would simply delay chain migration rather than ending it while expanding the scope of the amnesty for DACA recipients and reallocating the diversity lottery visas to a different class of unskilled immigrants,” he said.

“Not only would a deal like that hurt the country, voters have said very clearly, again and again, they don’t want it. And this is a democracy after all or at least it was.”

Carlson said if Republicans did not listen to voters on this issue, they are “toast.”

“You have to listen to what voters want if you are a lawmaker. If you see that kind of deal come out of Congress, and you may, the Republican Party is done, it’s over, it’s toast. It will be a short epitaph too, suicide,” he added.

Other conservative pundits including Fox News host Laura Ingraham and author/columnist Ann Coulter have warned Republicans against passage of another amnesty program.

A number of conservatives believe one of the major reasons why Trump defeated Hillary Clinton was his pledge to enforce all immigration laws and to reduce illegal immigration.
