    Trump open to legal status for undocumented immigrants???

    Trump may add immigration section to speech - CNNPolitics.com

    He's SELLING OUT his hard-core Nativist/xenophobe/etc. Base who were with him from the beginning.

    1. Hey, man, didn't say so before...but glad to see you again.


    2. Not this year....maybe end of the year, or first of 2018?....

    watch for a verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slow inclusion of "not citizenship, not amnesty, but legal status" in the Trump Talking Points from Spicer, Bullshit Barbie, Lumpy Hannity, and even the Big Orange Paper Dragon himself.

    Again:

    We need to, in this order:

    #1. Defend our borders.
    #2. Develop a fast track ID/Green Card for any citizens from Mexico, Canada, and the US, that allows for faster and easier border crossings.
    #3. Work on a system of Amnesty, perhaps leading to a Path to Citizenship, for all who are here, already, and have NOT been convicted of any MAJOR crimes.
    #4. Either send the criminal elements home, or hold them in prison, indefinitely. (Perhaps going so far as to threaten to cut off aid, and/or, enact stricter trade guidelines with any nation who will not take their criminal elements back....)

    But, if we do not do #1, everything else is a waste of time and effort.

    (Except for votes. Immigration and border security are good get the vote out issues for BOTH parties.....)

    President Trump has always been conflicted on this issue and made that clear during the campaign. He has always expressed a desire for some kind of compromise for those who are here illegally but haven't broken any of our laws and embraced our values. So this would not be selling out. It would be him approaching this issue as President in the very same way he approached it during the campaign.

    But as always, you are far more interested in your partisan agenda (trying to sow seeds of discord between Trump and his supporters) then you are the truth.

    Isn't this the policy you wanted to see him take?

    So Trump does something else you agree with now.

    Yeah, and we'll get health coverage for everyone under Trump too, right?

    Don't pay attention to what he says pay attention to what he does.

    Illegal immigrants already have a legal status: "illegal". And they are already able to start the legal immigration process, although the law requires them to wait ten years since they've violated immigration law and that's the penalty.
    Why anyone is suggesting that people who've broken the law should be rewarded, and placed ahead of those have dutifully obeyed our immigration laws, is a mystery to me, and to a lot of other voters, hence President Trump.

    There were in fact a headline or two I saw on questionable sites to the idea that Trump was proposing to grant 2 million illegals amnesty.

    What did he actually say to congress? That is one subject that hasn't been raise in any of the media I have seen. They say he mentioned immigration but not what he said.

    Wrong answer. Once you give citizenship to Guest Workers, they will ultimately outnumber you, out-vote you and make all your arguments a moot point.
