John McCain tried to undermine Trump in the worst way
President Trump revealed the four pillars of his immigration plan during his State of the Union Address.
He made it clear that he would make good on his campaign promise to secure the border by building a wall.
But never-Trump Senator John McCain just to took a major step to undermine Trump.
John McCain is working with Democrats to give amnesty to the “DREAMers.”
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Sen. Chris Coons (D., Del.) plan to unveil a proposal that offers a path to citizenship for Dreamers and orders a comprehensive study to determine what border-security measures are needed. But the bill stops well short of almost all of the president’s demands—including immediate funding for the wall along the southern border—and is likely to meet a chilly reception from conservative Republicans.
The senators’ bill would provide legal status and a path to citizenship for young immigrants who have lived in the U.S. since Dec. 31, 2013, aides said Sunday. That is expected to be a larger group than would be covered by Mr. Trump’s proposed 1.8 million people.
This is yet another move by McCain to capitulate to Democrats’ demands for amnesty.
If this bill were to be signed into law it would undermine attempts to get the votes needed to fund the wall.
After all, Democrats are the party of open borders.
If they get a big win with McCain’s amnesty plan for the DREAMers, why would they bother to fund a border wall?
