Republican Senator Tom Cotton said Democrats are going to have to compromise if they expect to get the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) deal that they’re hoping for — and now the White House is putting it all on the table.
President Trump has made a number of striking compromises and allowed Democrat-favored programs continue as long as other concessions are agreed upon. But, lawmakers like Cotton know that the chances of Democrats meeting the administration in the middle are slim to none.
“The president has already made fundamental concession,” Cotton said. “He’s willing to give amnesty to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of illegal immigrants who were brought here by and large due to no fault of their own. That’s his concession.”
This is a point of fact over which many Trump supporters have taken exception with the president. The feeling is that concessions on DACA are concessions on an issue that threatens to destroy the republic. But Trump has sympathy for those who were born here, and even if illegally, who are not responsible for the actions of their illegal immigrant parents.
But Democrats always want more. This is what they secretly mean by “progressive,” give an inch and take a mile. They believe no victory is enough.
Cotton continued, “It’s time for them to start making concessions to our position, to ending chain migration, to ending the diversity lottery, and securing our borders and enforcing our laws. If the Democrats want to shut down the government over this, they can. They have the ability to filibuster any bill in the Senate. I don’t think that will work out for them, so I suspect they will not.”
Cotton participated in the meeting on DACA at the White House in which Trump was reported to have used vulgarity describing Haiti and other countries. Trump denies the accusation, and no evidence of this comment made in private has come forth.
The Democrats and the left wing media got a lot of airtime out of the alleged comment, but no one except them seemed to care about it. In the end, now that the shutdown is over, and the Democrats haven’t gotten everything they wanted — it seems clear that the ‘s#ithole country’ accusation was nothing but a ploy to get more out of the DACA deal than they had a right to expect.
It’s more of the same petty shame and blame tactics they always use.
Now, Dems are wringing their hands again since they only got their inch and not the whole mile. Cotton says they have overplayed their hand, and his comments ring true. Their shortsightedness has led to another Republican victory as the government shutdown doesn’t scare Trump or anyone else who doesn’t worship the state.
After the deal went sour for Democrats, Cotton said, “What we learned is that the American people don’t want to have the government shut down for illegal immigration. The Democrats badly overplayed their hand here. They ought not to have done it, but I’m glad the shutdown is over, and people can get back to work in the government serving the American people.”
Trump’s stance on the deal is as clear as it is fair. He wants to extend a hand to people who were born here illegally to no fault of their own, but that did not mean that he wanted to allow endless chain migration as a result.
But, the Democrats are desperate to bring in more foreign votes because time and time again, history has taught them they low wage and illegal immigrants will vote for Democrats if the they promise them welfare and other handouts.
The left can’t win an election honestly anymore. They have no argument except to call people names and they offer precisely zero solutions. Americans are tired of having their jobs and their hard-won assets stripped away from them in the name left-wing principles — principles that are, by every useful metric, designed to destroy the nation.
Their obsession with giving amnesty to illegal immigrants is totally transparent. Barbara Boxer even made a public statement to the effect that if they don’t push for more leniency on immigration they will not be able to win elections.
Now, to anyone paying attention, it is absolutely clear that they are just pushing for votes from people who don’t care about this country and will vote Democrat for cheap handouts.
With jobs surging back, and female and black unemployment at all time lows, the public is quickly losing its patience for claims that Trumps is a colossal bigot.
