If he was to do so?
He’d have to jettison his trusty anti-immigration Assistant Stephen Miller….
And go with his son-in-law Jared Kushner….
THAT would be leaving the anti-immigration people standing alone….
Could Trump actually dos this?
If he does ?
He’d surely be twisting his party like a pretzel….
Pelosi has already had him Dom that, eh?
“It’s complicated, but it isn’t hard to do if you have good intentions,” Pelosi said during the Democrats’ annual issues conference at a golf resort in northern Virginia. “And I’m not giving up on the president on this. … I still say to him, ‘We’ve got to have comprehensive immigration reform.'”
Pelosi noted that Democrats secured new funds for immigration judges and other border measures in the spending bill that ultimately reopened the government, which Trump signed in February. But she accused the president of failing to tap those funds for their intended purpose.
“He has not utilized what is in that, specifically, [for] the border,” she said.
Pelosi also warned that the only long-term solution to the border crisis is the adoption of comprehensive immigration reform package, like the bipartisan bill passed by the Senate in 2013.
“We keep saying to the Republicans, ‘Let’s do that,’ but it has to be in a bipartisan way,” she said. “We think that there’s opportunity to do that.”
House Democrats have not introduced such a bill this year, pushing instead for piece-meal immigration reforms that include new protections for so-called “Dreamers” and those under temporary protected status. And Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled Senate have shown little interest in moving on a comprehensive immigration reform bill, instead joining Trump in urging more funding for the border wall as a first order of business.
Trump, meanwhile, has only heightened his attacks on immigrants as the border crisis has worsened in recent weeks.
“Our country is full,” he tweeted over the weekend.
