President Donald Trump said a bipartisan deal on Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, or “DACA is probably dead because Democrats don’t really want it.”

“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” President Trump tweeted. “I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST.”

While it’s true that Democrats don’t want a deal, a recently leaked memo does again confirm what People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) has repeatedly reported — they only want DACA and view it as a “critical component” of the party’s “future electoral success.” The memo, which was co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, shows Democrats view illegal immigration as a voter registration drive.

“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” Ms. Palmieri wrote. “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.”

It showed Democrats fully understand their severe problem with white voters and, rather than appeal to them or pivot their platform, would rather replace them.

President Trump met last week with a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House to push for a deal on comprehensive immigration reform, including DACA. As the meeting took place, liberals judge-shopped in the most leftwing district in the federal courts for a ruling by a lower court judge forcing the Trump Administration to resume applications. 

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas., the Chairman of the House Homeland Defense Committee, were co-authoring a bill in the House.

The Goodlatte-McCaul bill front-loaded a permanent fix for DACA, but also put an end to chain migration, the so-called visa lottery (DV) and funded border security measures. However, DACA-only members of the U.S. Senate tried to jump the gun and put forward another bill that only addressed Democrat demands.

President Trump rejected the bill they put forward.

In response, Senator Dick Durbin, D-Il., claimed at a follow-up meeting that President Trump said the bill allowed an almost endless flow of immigration from “shit-hole” countries. The White House didn’t specifically deny the use of the phrase but did say Senator Durbin twisted his words.

Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said while he didn’t “recall those comments specifically,” President Trump was referring to the imbalance of immigration from low-skilled countries. Senator David Perdue, R-Ga., confirmed that account.
