Trump is met with Republican lawmakers today to discuss options regarding DACA policy. He is reportedly considering, based on a proposal suggested by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), to keep protections in place for illegal aliens covered under the DACA policy.
Graham said that Trump was “receptive” to the amnesty program he lobbied for in front of the Republican lawmakers today.
“I think the takeaway for me is if the court rules in the president’s favor we’re not going to allow these folks to have their lives turned upside down, but we will try to put together a package that, you know, protects the DACA population but also does some things to address how this system’s so broken and we’ll just cross that bridge when we get there,” Graham said.
Groups that fight to keep the borders safe and keep illegal immigrants out of the country are not pleased by this news.
“In response to a potential Supreme Court decision on DACA, we expect Republican lawmakers to give President Trump political advice consistent with what got him elected in 2016,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a hard-line group against illegal immigration.
“A decision ending DACA is not an ‘emergency’ that needs to be exploited to advance Senator Graham’s amnesty agenda,” Stein added.
In addition to Graham, Trump met with Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Mike Lee of Utah, Kevin Cramer of North Dakota, David Perdue of Georgia, Martha McSally of Arizona, and Thom Tillis of North Carolina today as well.
Earlier in his presidency, Trump gave a speech in which he formally endorsed the idea of giving amnesty to millions of illegal alien DREAMers under the DACA policy.
“Go get DACA. Go push those Democrats. I’m telling you. It’s close. This is a moment for DACA,” Trump said while pushing his notion for comprehensive immigration reform based on so-called merit.

That is a far cry from what Trump campaigned on, and the shift has come as a result of the influence of malign interests he has allowed in his administration.
Big League Politics has reported extensively about how Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, a far-left liberal, has dictated the terms of the administration’s immigration policy.
Kushner has plotted with open border organizations such as the Koch-affiliated Libre Initiative and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to subvert Trump’s mandate on immigration:
Top White House adviser Jared Kushner told members of Latino advocacy organizations on Thursday that President Donald Trump was willing to give 1.8 million Dreamers permanent protections from deportation and to reopen the government in exchange for $25 billion in border security, including some wall funding, LULAC President Domingo Garcia said.
Officials from the League of United Latin American Citizens, Libre Initiative and the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce met with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law — and briefly, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen — on Thursday to discuss ways to find a compromise in order to reopen the government…
Garcia said Kushner spent an hour with the group and was very engaged. Kushner cited Trump’s State of the Union address in 2017 where he indicated his support for a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers…
Garcia said Kushner made it clear that this was their opening bid and they were asking for the Democrats to come back with a counter, but they had not heard anything.
Immigration was the issue that put President Trump in the White House, but the administration policy has been completely subverted on the issue, thanks to the devious work of Kushner and his allies.
Border Patrol Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006
Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.
The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.
CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.
On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.
The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
