Chuck Schumer and the Democrats smelled victory.
They agreed to a deal with anti-Trump RINOs to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
But then Donald Trump did the one thing that left Chuck Schumer speechless.
The so-called “Gang of Six” presented an amnesty scheme to Trump that was far beyond any legislative fix for DACA.
Their plan granted amnesty not only to DACA recipients, but anyone who was eligible for DACA and didn’t sign up.
It also allowed for chain migration by allowing their parents to stay on three year work visas that could be renewed.
In addition, it reallocated the 50,000 green cards from the diversity lottery to protect immigrants whose temporary protected status Trump had ended like Haiti and El Salvador.
To try and satisfy Trump, they tossed him a fig leaf of minor funds for a border wall.
Trump rejected the deal in a dramatic fashion by asking the pro-amnesty senators why we had to take so many people from “these $%&*hole countries?”
“President Donald Trump shot down an amnesty plan offered by Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin and several GOP Senators, prompting amnesty-advocates to wreck the amnesty talks by leaking Trump’s Oval Office “sh*thole” description of undeveloped countries.
The report said:
President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they floated restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to two people briefed on the meeting.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.
The comments left lawmakers taken aback, according to people familiar with their reactions. Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) proposed cutting the visa lottery program by 50 percent and then prioritizing countries already in the system, a White House official said.”
Democrats and the media clutched their pearls over Trump’s comments, but the White House blasted their critics by pointing out that they would rather put the interests of foreign citizens first.
