      Nork missile? Wrong thread. 🙂

      The 800k number being touted is some federal estimate. . Expect the final number offered a pathway to citizenship to be much much lower. There are at least a couple thousand already behind bars for other offenses who will be deported ASAP. No use in pulling our hair out over this issue.

      Meanwhile . . . . . . .

    Stop all this talk about “mass deportations” versus DACA or some sort of legalized residency.

    That is a false dichotomy — “attrition through enforcement” is the third choice and is a politically winning strategy: http://www.jmisys.com/immigrationmarches/zogby5.html

    And here is how it works, according to an illegal alien going home because of it:

      I like the storeowner — seems like a decent person. He also took the trouble to learn English.

      My problem with recent past policy in the last administration has been that
      (a) we should have reasonable immigration laws that screen carefully for bad characters. I think this is Trump’s focus also and that’s why I continue to back Trump 100%.
      (b) no criminals!!! no gangs. Gang violence is horrific in Mexico — it isn’t “racism” or “xenophobia” to dread gang presence in our communities. Get gangsters OUT. (And if Mexico is going to be great again, Mexico will have to get rid of violent gangs also)
      (c) English is the first and official language here in the U.S>. I’m all in favor of learning multiple languages and becoming polyglot — I’m trying to do this myself. Spanish is a beautiful language. However, I listened to a student from Sri Lanka explain how a bloody civil war got started in Sri Lanka — and she explained how the violence was directly attributable to making another language besides English (Sinhala?) into their official language in Sri Lanka. Suddenly there was significant ethnic division where this hadn’t been a problem before.
      KEEP ENGLISH AS OUR FIRST LANGUAGE (although it’s great to learn ASL, Spanish, Chinese, you name it)

        You mean the store owner/s who broke multiple laws to get where he/they are now.
        Interesting that the Illegals who came here with nothing nothing own businesses, but homes.
        Would be interesting to know how many $$$ he/they earned illegally,how many $ he/they earned committing identity thief, how many dollars his/their family or him got from social services, and then last but least – how much money did he/illegals contribute to the education and teaching of his/their children including college. (especially teaching his/their children English).. Majority of DACAers in college are using grants due to their Illegal parent’s income. hmmmm

          kin — as above, so below. Look at our leadership! Look at who came into office with “nothing” and emerged with millions…. This has been our government.

          And our colleges are also corrupt and seditious beyond belief, and have been for a long time… while naive citizen parents forced their kids to “go to college!” whether they wanted to or not. I love education and am fascinated by the system, but racism/identity politics and blatant sedition went unquestioned for DECADES. That isn’t the responsibility of the “Dreamers”, and punishing Dreamers will not solve that problem either.

          Our past leadership brought this on us by refusing to uphold the laws, and the majority of citizens allowed it. Maybe not you and me, but still a majority — and now we have this problem to solve. It needs to be negotiated wisely. I’m going to trust our elected leader to try and get the job done as well as possible.

            So don’t tell me that. Talk to some of the college dreamers/DACAers. Ask them about who is paying for their education. Majority are in college due to American governmental grants which the majority feel they are totally entitled to.

          Technically, English is not the official language — it is de facto the common language, but there is no de jure official language.

              Because most of the kids in ESL programs are not DACA; they are the children of people with visas or other nonDACA, think “refugee” (and even some of them have some level of English capability — it just isn’t at their grade level). And most of the DACA’s children are there because their English is not up to standard, but that does not mean that they don’t know English.

          Ok Phil and Jenny , thanks for pouring cold water on the hysteria out there on all those willing to jump ship because Trump is putting the art of the deal into action . Problem is , most people build up these unrealistic expectations , that any single President can make all their dreams come true . Wow ,so I’ll call them the “First Dreamers” , fair enough.
          I’m really hoping though that they can start to really ” see” with inner vision , what our President is doing ,not just ” look ” and react . You voted for a man who values human potential , a man with true heart , who WANTS to make America great again ! Is it not possible that he can see the benefit of a few of these dreamers being some of the valuable human potential that we need to help rebuild this country ? Are we so bitter and narrow that we can’t even entertain this thought ? Can we not ” trust ” for longer than an hour this man who has already done so much to prove his worth and his integrity already to such an unprecedented level ?
          I really have to rethink what kind of people we are becoming if this is the case . I hope that 90 % of that mindset on here is coming from planted trolls , otherwise the thought that this thinking is really endemic is truly depressing and will undermine every good thing that has been accomplished thus far .

            We shouldn’t forget—P45 met with “Chuck and Nancy” to talk about his tax reform initiative. Which they likely did—–but then Chuck and Nancy immediately went to DACA because that is what they want. Then they rushed to the microphones. And the trolls descended on que.That is how all this came about.

            P45 gave them 6 months on DACA. He wants tax reform before the end of the year. Others are trying to revive Obamacare before the end of September. SO nothing of consequence will happen tomorrow. Let’s chill.

          • So Americans struggling to compete with 800,000 foreigners who shouldn’t be here are bitter? It’s amazing how quickly Nancy Pelosi rhetoric is used to attack the deplorables. Are they clinging to their guns and bibles as well?

            Trump was already challenged on this during the campaign, he explicitly said all illegals “have to go”. It’s not an easy decision, but in order to put our government back to work for its people, they have to go. If they are such amazing people, then they can apply to come back at a later date.

            Trump is looking like a liar and a political opportunist. The ONLY reason he beat Ted Cruz was because he stood strong on both Immigration and Trade. We didn’t vote for Trump because we think he’s some genius negotiator, we voted for him because of what he promised. Deporting 800,000 DACA recipients will immediately open up 800,000 jobs for Americans.

            With Chain migration still in tact, these DACA recipients can invite their Grandparents, Parents, Aunts, Uncles, Siblings, Cousings, Nieces, Nephews – entire villages flooding into this country through yet another loophole. Trump looks like a complete idiot.

            • You are quoting incorrectly. Our President said all through his campaign that first we would deal with the criminals, then we would encourage self deporting and uphold the laws while building a wall. He said throughout that illegal aliens brought here as children and growing up, in America, was a weightier problem that needed to be decided with heart.

              The adults that came here illegally were the ones that needed to go out to come in again. These were the families that POTUS said should not be broken up, they should take their children. Our President has been consistent throughout. People remember selectively & out of context based on what they wanted to hear. There also has to be room for compromise because POTUS is not an emperor and must work through Congress & with Congress who we know are not America first critters.

              No, but people who believe our President could just wave some sort of magic wand and grant all their wishes come true (and only theirs) immediately are not being very pragmatic.

              This illegal problem (actually our entire immigration issues) are not going to be done in one day or even one year, and likely none of us will get exactly what we personally want completely and totally at the end of it.

              I’m just happy that no matter what happens the President is attempting to de-normalize the concept of an imperial presidency by making Congress pass legislation, as it should be done (and also his very election helped with that too — Mark Steyn was very correct in stating that we should have been furious over the idea of getting another Clinton or another Bush…do we accept patrileaneal ascendency to our White House now?).
              If he has done but one thing Trump has given us the ability to sit back and say “no, I won’t accept a group of ‘nobles'” — and that was a very big thing to be grateful for.

                I’m also not going to get hung up on DACA when there are bigger things afoot. DACA is just a part, not the whole.
                Even of the immigration situation — as of now we are legally getting people into our country who could pose a greater risk to our republic than many DACAs (I know of a couple of very legal green card owners who are card carrying communists, but they are here legally due to marriage to Americans; I’m not really thrilled about having them as fellow citizens, for they are very politically active; I also know of some pretty hardcore islamists of the same persuasion — some Americans have this strange desire to marry very anti-American people, who would have thought?)…if Trump can negotiate something whereby our immigration laws are tightened at the expense of keeping a few Dreamers, then he will have made a very good deal for us.
                PS. and not every illegal in our country is a “Mexican”; as this seems to be a crux of the matter with some

        Agreed!
        I think Trump is focused on illegal criminal’s first and foremost. (Please don’t try to explain how illegals are actually criminals, you know what I’m talking about!) DACA children and others can stay for all I care, just end all benefits and deport the gang members and I’ll be happy. Ending the benefits will solve 99% of the problem I think.

        As for Trump working with Democrats, I am still blown away at what the RINO’s must be thinking. “Their” president siding with the “enemy.” XD

      • There are many would-be LEGAL immigrants in the LEGAL immigration line. They file the proper papers, pay the fees, are vetted to make sure they will not be an economic burden to society and are not involved in any criminal activities, are willing to assimilate into our culture, learn English…and wait at the end of the line.

        They wait for decades sometimes up to 20 years before they can enter the US.It will take another long wait for them to petition for their families. Only later will they become U.S. citizens and be allowed to vote.

        Illegal alien families with children simply walk over the border and are given all the support they need to start a new life. They elbow out those who wait in the LEGAL immigration line.

        It’s unfair. Why do we reward those who break the law and refuse to help those who obey our laws?

              POTUS is still in the working it out stage. And he doubled down on his intention to build a wall with the dozen or some remarks made throughout the rest of the day.

              So everyone picked out two tweets, ignored the other two, ignored everything he said to clarify his position and arbitrarily decide only the “dreamer” tweets mattered because of “muh narrative.”

How about this option, DACA is dead and enforcement will proceed vigorously ahead. Once E-verify is mandatory and functioning well, the border wall is in place (and staffed), the RAISE act is in effect (HB-1 and other issues resolved), and sanctuary areas are eliminated, then the remaining DACA individuals will be discussed. Longer it takes more DACA folk will be deported. Might just eliminate some of those roadblocks. Note the word “discussed” which means just that and not an agreement that X will occur. Enforcement is under the DOJ and that is the Executive branch.

Tucker has backtracked, and has otherwise been a solid patriot. He was one of the few conservative commentators who didn’t personally attack Sarah Palin and who didn’t ridicule Trump’s voting base. He’s a good guy.

                My point is most people I see who hate Rush are not singing his praises and that their is a split opinion of him on this site among the posters. (like all the other talking heads.)

                When people who like him find a reason to say good things about him they post it.

                When People who hate him find a reason to further dislike him they post it.

                I notice it is not the same people doing the like/hate posts but simply the people who feel a need to be vocal on that day. SO it is not as much a wind change as it is which voices are the loudest at the moment.

                Really, I can’t stand any of them, even Hannity gets on my nerves and while I do listen to Dobbs most days his ponderous long-winded approach is tiresome. I can usually only stand half an hour.

                But I’m picky. Still, I actually like most of FBN from 9-12 when I’m working around the house.

    I came home from work to check in at one of my favorite places to spend some time. But it’s kind of a crazy town today. Thank God it’s not everyone. There is a good amount of very smart, faithful members of the Tree house that I can count on to push back against the negativity and shine the light on the progress that has already been made.

    To all of those who voted for Donald J. Trump that are ready to jump off the train, so be it. You have that right and the train will keep on going down the track without you. However, those who have posted the same comments over and over again, what is actually your goal? You clearly have an agenda. Maybe you’re so full of negativity, that you just have to vomit it all out on a website. Maybe you think President Trump is President of you only and not the 340,000,000 other people in this country so he better do what you say! Maybe you just have an incredible need to be right so you are trying to convince as many people as your can to jump off the train with you. Whatever reason you have for vomiting all over the Treehouse, it must be hard to be you.

    Me? I am so thankful to God that he has granted us a once in a lifetime opportunity to get our country turned around. I support President Trump. I believe he is effecting great changes here and around the world and this is only the ninth month of his presidency! I voted for him to make the best deals and decisions possible and I trust that he will in all matters before him. I believe that God has placed him at this place, at this point in time, to carry out His mission for our country. I’m not the one that sick and violent people want to kill. I’m not the one who has been called the worst kind of names and had my character and integrity questioned and destroyed. I’m not the one trying to make America great again after the despicable destruction that has been wrought. I am also not the one who has to deal with snakes and scorpions in DC. So, I am going to give President Trump a whole lot of breathing room to act as he sees fit. I am going to support him anyway I can and defend him when the opportunity arises.

    But that’s just me. I rather like the train.

But if we pull out the reason we went in in the first Place the reason people died and the reason all the money got spent will amount to only creating a worse situation then what we started with. That is an unacceptable position to me and Apparently the President as well.

              In my opinion it ends when the Taliban and Isis are not the most likely inheritors of the country. I don’t care what the government looks like as long as at the end of the day it is not going to support radical Islamic terrorism.

              You can disagree with me and that is fine. However their are consequences and down sides to pulling out and staying in and I prefer living with the down side of staying in at the moment.

Today he clarified “No amnesty” so I think everyone should cool their jets until we know more.

        It’s always going to be two against one. Trump against Congress, Trump and Dems against GOP or Trump and GOP against Dems. Trump had to set the teams on this and do it quickly. He did so beautifully. There’s no way the GOP can team up with the Dems against the President now.

    I’m really hoping though that they can start to really ” see” with inner vision , what our President is doing ,not just ” look ” and react . You voted for a man who values human potential , a man with true heart , who WANTS to make America great again ! Is it not possible that he can see the benefit of a few of these dreamers being some of the valuable human potential that we need to help rebuild this country ? Are we so bitter and narrow that we can’t even entertain this thought ? Can we not ” trust ” for longer than an hour this man who has already done so much to prove his worth and his integrity already to such an unprecedented level ?
    I really have to rethink what kind of people we are becoming if this is the case .

    Always remember the lesson of Czechoslovakia: “Beneš initially refused to accept their resignations and insisted that no government could be formed without the non-Communist parties. However, Gottwald threatened a general strike unless Beneš appointed a Communist-dominated government. The Communists also occupied the offices of the non-Communists who had resigned. Amid fears that civil war was imminent and rumours that the Red Army would sweep in to back Gottwald, Beneš gave way, on 25 February. He accepted the resignations of the non-Communist ministers and appointed a new government, in accordance with Gottwald’s specifications. It was nominally still a coalition but was dominated by Communists and fellow travelers. In effect, he had given legal sanction to a Communist coup d’état.”. Benes gave way because the Communist street mobs controlled all the streets and gave Benes the impression that he was alone and the people wanted the Communists.

    Trump hears nothing except pro-DACA bullscheiss and needs to hear from his base. The congresscritters also need to hear.

    He is willing to compromise but the Dems might get greedy and intransigent.
    There are many options. These illegals could earn citizenship by serving in the military. The could start over at the end of the line of legal applicants for admission. We could send them home with money in their pocket to do well in their home countries.

        She would have been in a drunken stupor after guzzling down a case of her Chardonnay, screeching at everyone to “take care of it” with no clue as to what exactly to do. There would be no real leadership and experience anywhere, just blame and more political games galore. Lastly, Horn dog Bill would be bonking another intern in the Lincoln bedroom (on days/nights that it is not rented out to sleazy Dem friends).

              And if Dreamers are denied then you can thank us die-hard immigration hawks who are raising holy hell to Trump to stop it cold.

              Otherwise, left to Trump, as his very own tweets indicate, they and he will be celebrating the “Dreamers” amnesty. And it is amnesty if they aren’t all deported.

            Since nothing has been put in a bill, voted on and passed for the President to sign or veto, I really don’t understand what your problem is. Obviously you came here to stir up strife. But what you aren’t aware of is this group is well informed by the excellent news analysis of Sundance and flep. So you are barking up the wrong tree. Maybe you’ll get better results at BB?

              I’m not leaving until Sundance changes the sites name to Cult of Trump – The last Refuge.

              And here’s my problem:

              “We’re working on a plan for DACA,” Mr. Trump told reporters, referring to protections for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as he prepared to leave the White House for Florida. He added, “The wall will come later.”

              Why does there need to be a plan regarding DACA? There doesn’t. He told us he finally ended it a week or so ago. Late (not day one – promised) and still another six months to go but it’s suppose to be over. A done deal.

              Now he’s bringing it back to life because he’s sympathetic to illegals. Always has been. I’ve got a Yuge problem with that.

              This is also my problem:

    I’m so sick of hearing about DACA. The Mexicans snuck into the United States Illegally, had a bunch of kids purposely so the kids could be a USA citizens and then they figured the illegal parents and relatives would be able to stay here without being USA citizens. It doesn’t work that way. Mexicans want their way and that mustn’t happen. Who do they think they are? They are troublemakers that have to be dealt with soon. The other people that come in have to wait and become USA citizens legally, why are the Mexicans getting away with this. If I was coming into the USA and hear the illegal Mexicans can stay here even though they are illegal immigrant, I would be madder than hell. President Trump, please put a stop to the illegal Mexicans and put up that wall. I know you are going through hell trying to build that wall with all the Liberal Democrats and some stupid Republicans against you, but you are a great negotiator, that’s why I voted for you. You have to stop these illegal Mexicans from taking over the USA.

      I understand your point but the “Dreamers” aren’t just Mexicans.

      They are any child of an illegal alien. We have millions of illegals from every country on earth. Other places like China, Somalia, Pakistan, India, Vietnam, Korea, Russia, all of South American, even Ireland.

      Lots of Muslim children too.

      It’s a nightmare.

      I voted for Trump and I’d vote for him again tomorrow. Some of you have a really hard time separating concern for some of the things he says, from disloyalty. Expand your mind a bit. It’s possible for concern and loyalty to co-exist, and in fact, I would think most reasonable adults would be able to grasp that.

      • Jane, I know your heart is in a good place. I have an analogy for you. I have taught many people to quilt. The hardest ones to work with are the ones that want you to explain every step from the get go. They can’t understand and they waste everyone’s time. They think they will understand the process if they ask lots of questions but they confuse themselves. The ones that learn best follow along step by step, ask a question or two along the way to clarify & it clicks for them. Eventually I have to tell the ladies that want to control the process that they will just have to wait and see.

        President Trump has an endpoint he is aiming to get to, he has told us many times that he won’t tell us exactly how he’s going to get there because that would take away his ability to use surprise, leverage, uncertainty and deflection to accomplish our goals. So you are not going to be able to analyze and nitpick his every word, he is purposely keeping things somewhat nebulous, for our eventual benefit.

          As long as the endpoint doesn’t involve amnesty and does involve the end (not the enshrinement in law) of DACA, I’m fine with that. That’s what he ran on, that’s what he promised, that’s what we need to do.

          I’ll gladly eat my words if that happens. Will you if the “dreamers” are in fact amnestied?

I want the Government to return power to the states and downsize itself. I trust POTUS to do the frankly superhuman job of making that happen.

            If he needs the leverage of making the numerical equivalence of the current yearly #number of legal immigrants & refugees able to stay in America I count it cheap at the price. No wall no deal.

    Seems to me it’s Congress your wrath, concern & communications should be directed towards.

    It was unconstitutional for Obama to establish DACA. President Trump ended DACA. The ONLY way anything gets revived regarding DACA is if Congress legislates.

    If you don’t want DACA revived, shouldn’t you be hammering Congress?

    The President promised he would end Obama’s illegal amnesties on his first day in office. DAPA is gone but he’s held onto DACA. I was nervous about this because he talks about having “great heart” for “Dreamers”. Lately he said he loved the Dreamers.

    He’s surrounded by globalists in the WH. There’s hardly anyone left that believes in his agenda, Stephen Miller comes to mind.

    Ending illegal immigration is the single biggest reason I voted for DT, also the Supreme Court. That’s why he won the election, because Americans are sick and tired of the invasion. Does the President understand it doesn’t matter if you call it amnesty or not? The name doesn’t matter. The push will be for “Dreamers” to stay and then their extended families/chain migration will add a few more million to the numbers. Also we have to count the anchor babies born to DACAs or have already been born.

    Anytime amnesty or talk about letting illegals stay here there’s a surge at the border, because it’s a huge magnet. We’re having a surge at the border right now, including unaccompanied minors and there’s no doubt in my mind it’s because they believe if they can get in they’ll be able to stay. Don’t think foreign nationals south of the border aren’t paying close attention to the politics of DACA.

    The wall needs to be built yesterday. We have to secure the border with a barrier. Walls work God forbid, when a Democrat President gets in, they can just undo what ever DT has done on immigration if there is no wall. IMO I think the President should just tax remittances illegals send back to Mexico and pay for the wall with those funds, then he doesn’t have to go through Congress for the money. It hits two campaign promises, building the wall and having Mexico pay for it.

    Today was very painful for me because from the start I knew DACA was going to be a problem since POTUS didn’t end it right away as he promised to do. The idea that DACA comes first and then the Wall later is not acceptable. We’ve all lived this story before. Promise of tighter security if we just let a few million illegals stay. The border “fence” was supposed to be built over ten years ago and…

    I advise everyone to call the WH hotline and let the President know we have his back but no amnesties and we want the wall. He needs to hear from us. Comment hotline number is: 202-456-1111.

  27. The entire meeting with Pelosi and Schumer was all talk. No laws were voted on period. Trump ended DACA as he promised with a six-month delay to put it in the lap of Congress. DACA will be the most unpopular piece of legislation that no Congressman wants to touch. It will die a natural death. The end of DACA will strike fear in the illegals and keep them off balance. Many will leave on their own out of fear. Why? Because Trump is unpredictable in their minds. By ending DACA the ICE can proceed with enforcing the laws as they are written.
    The wall will go up. Why? Because money was already appropriated years ago under Bush but it was never spent. The joke is on the never Trumpers and the Democrats. Trump is actually leveraging for more money in order to get stronger border security.
    Trump’s meeting with Schumer and Pelosi was nothing more than a flash bang grenade to the Republicans to get their attention.
