WEB Notes: FLIP. Trump’s administration is “now” open to the idea of the whole “Dreamer” act you Republican/Conservatives shot Obama down for. The new US administration is seriously considering the idea of amnesty for 1 million illegal immigrants. I heard you all hoot and holler when Obama wanted to do it. Let’s hear you hoot and holler now that a Republican is in office and wants to do it. You realize if you stay silent that is a bit hypocritical. Make a stand and stick with it already. Otherwise you are just wasting air with your banter and playing politics. Our nations is being destroyed and you cannot see it as “your party” stands in office. How disgusting.
The Trump administration last week floated an amnesty idea for potentially 1 million illegal immigrants, looking to find permanent solutions for some of the most sympathetic cases in the long-running immigration debate.
In two days of testimony to Congress, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said he doubts his ability to oust some 250,000 immigrants from Central American countries who have been in the U.S. for nearly two decades on a temporary humanitarian relief program.
He also signaled that he would keep protecting 780,000 Dreamers from deportation and hoped Congress would grant them permanent status.
“You’ve got to solve this problem,” Mr. Kelly told the House Homeland Security Committee when members prodded him not to deport Dreamers.
He said he would not deport Dreamers but warned that the policy could change when someone else takes over his job, making the only solution congressional action. He said there is clear bipartisan support for some form of permanent legalization and urged lawmakers to take the opportunity that the Trump administration is giving.
