The debate over DACA Dreamers will have to wait until after Christmas, Senate GOP Whip John Cornyn told reporters on Monday.
“The president has given us enough time to deal with this before March and so I think that’s plenty of time and I expect us to meet it,” Cornyn stated, adding, “If we can’t, then the president could extend the deadline if he chose to do so. But this is something we’re going to turn to, I’m sure, in January.”
Democratic leaders attempted to intimidate GOP lawmakers into accepting a “no-strings” amnesty deal for 3.24 million illegals by threatening to block a government budget bill.
Regardless of how the American people feel about this situation, two groups of senators have prepared proposed amnesty packages for possible debate in the new year, according to a report in Breitbart.
One GOP group, led by Sen. Chuck Grassley, could offer work-permits to illegals in exchange for cuts in legal immigration by ending the chain-migration and visa lottery programs. According to the report, “Cornyn is part of this group but has suggested the chain-migration be gradually phased out, spurring suspicion among pro-American activists that Cornyn does not want to lower the huge annual inflow of unskilled, low-wage migrants.”
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin is offering GOP senators token border-security measures in exchange for the amnesty of the 3 million ‘dreamer’ illegals and future migration of their chain-migration relatives. Four GOP senators are cooperating with Durbin. They are Sens. Lindsey Graham, Oklahoma’s James Lankford, Colorado’s Cory Gardner, and retiring Arizona Jeff Flake, the report says.
Democrats’ calls for amnesty are unpopular because they contradict Americans’ sense of fairness to other Americans, polls show.
“Business groups and Democrats embrace the misleading, industry-funded ‘nation of immigrants’ polls which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants. The alternative ‘fairness’ polls show that voters put a much higher priority on helping their families, neighbors, and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigration, low-wage economy,” according to Breitbart.
