I am so enjoying the political scene. Today, the cherry on top is the Art O the Deal show, with POTUS offering a 10 year Amnesty to dreamers who have jobs, are not felons, speak English, have assimilated , in other words, they get the same deal as if they waited in line for ten years.
So, in exchange for 1.8 million assimilated residents, we get real limits on chain migration, killing the lottery , serious funding for the wall and the border and serious cuts in LEGAL immigration.
Tom Cotton has come out and with a smile , supported the deal. He knows the process.
Review his twitter feed for a good perspective
The Dems are going bat guano crazy.
The vocal base is reacting to the word “Amnesty”. not yet realizing that control of the language is critical in negotiation. Trump just defined ‘Amnesty” on his terms, which means we get to get to best of the ‘dreamers’ after they wait ten years. Ten years of prosperity changes political views a lot. It is merit based amnesty.
It moves the whole debate to making the Dems fight for what they really want and takes their figleaf ‘dreamers’ off the table.
This is why a dealmaker is better than any ideologue when things NEED to change.
