Trump Tests Loyal Base With Immigration Flirtation With Dems

immigRep. Steve King of Iowa, one of Congress' most strident opponents of immigration, was not pleased this week when congressional Democrats announced that they had reached a deal with President Trump to protect undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, telling Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes yesterday that any such deal should include radical anti-immigrant priorities such as attempting to end the Constitution's guarantee of birthright citizenship.

He said he was in the room when Trump dined earlier this week with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi reported that they had made a deal with the president that would save DACA and increase border security.

"I would say that President Trump is, I think, understanding better that it isn't just what the President says, this is not a parliamentary system, that the Prime Minister says something and then his party endorses it". We have disagreed with many of his decisions.

On Thursday morning, the president - a former Democrat himself - and the minority leaders appeared largely aligned.

Towards the end of the meeting, Elena Hatib, president of the NYU College Republicans, attempted to quell the concerns of the pro-Trump faction, insisting that Trump's seeming betrayal of his promises was a product of the compromises necessary to govern in D.C. Most in the crowd, however, seemed unconvinced that Trump had been conducting savvy maneuvering in the aim of fulfilling his stated immigration policy goals. They said, however, that the border wall was not part of the deal.

The governor activated all 7,000 members of the Florida National Guard, and 10,000 guardsmen from elsewhere were being deployed. Almost 7 million people in the Southeast were warned to evacuate, including 6.4 million in Florida alone.

While allowing young people who came to the US illegally to stay in the country is broadly popular, immigration hardliners consider it amnesty.

Trump gave Congress six months to act in legalizing the program and reforming the country's immigration system.

As Pelosi tried to make her point that Trump would get support from Democrats on a variety of issues, the men at the table started talking over each other. Some of Trump's appeal to the white, working-class voters who formed the basis of his voting bloc stemmed from his promises to crack down on illegal immigration.

There's no guarantee that the common ground Trump found this week with Democrats on immigration will result in legislation. But the wall continues to be, well, a wall between the members of Congress.

In a truly head-spinning exchange, Cernovich fired back at a Trump supporter who dismissed a New York Times report by Maggie Haberman as "fake news".
