Schumer, Pelosi say they have deal with Trump

Democratic congressional leaders emerged from a meeting with President Donald Trump Wednesday vowing to pursue an agreement protecting immigrants who were brought illegally into the U.S. as children from deportation.

In a joint statement, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they and Trump had “agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides.”

An estimated 800,000 young immigrants are currently covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which was formed by former President Barack Obama in 2012. Earlier this month, the Trump administration announced it was winding down the program over the next six months, putting pressure on Congress to pass a legislative solution.

A source briefed on the meeting confirmed to Fox News that Trump and the leaders agreed to pair the DREAM Act, which provides for giving young illegal immigrants eventual citizenship, with some measures enhancing border security. The source said that those measures do not include Trump’s long-promised wall across the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Why should I believe anything that Schumer and Pelosi say? They’re both Democrats and Democrats lie even when the truth will do. It’s what they do, it’s what makes them Democrats. After eight years of having things their way they thought the 2016 election would finally give them everything that they need to overthrow the Constitution and turn America into one big Communist prison camp with them in charge of everything. But they fielded the worst candidate that ever ran for President, and we the people decided that we’d had enough and we handed them their hat and stripped them of their chance to legislate America out of existence. They had come so close that they could taste the victory, and it’s driving them crazy. So, hold the course and keep your eye on the goal. And that goal is to overhaul the courts and clean up the mess in our schools. And, get to the polls next year and clean out the remaining Communist/Democrats and give the boot to the RINO’s masquerading as Republicans. Then do the same thing in 2020. And when we’re finished we’ll finally be able to pass on, what Reagan called, “the shining city on the hill”, to our children.
    God bless America.

    Just recently had a slight argument with a friend concerning DACA.. I finally said something that maybe I could agree with.. If the grown children of illegal parents wish to stay because they have jobs or joined the US Military can stay if they register as citizens very soon.. All parents with younger school children that are here illegally must be deported back to Mexico and apply like the millions before them.. There is No Sanctuary for the parents, grandparents, aunt’s. uncle’s or cousins.. The word ILLEGAL means not allowed under any circumstances, PERIOD..

    DACA is riddled with fraud, over 50% of the applications raise red flags. Most have no identity that can be checked. Those with felonies and gang affiliations were approved. We cannot continue doing this,look at Calif. we have lost that state, as long as we keep doing this we will continue to lose our country, one state at a time. Now illegals can drive and vote and become our elected officials, again, just look at Calif. We have had 7 amnesties, pretty soon, we will be the ones asking for amnesty from them.
