‘Maverick’ GOP Senator John McCain and Democrat Senator Chris Coons plan to unveil a revised immigration bill Monday afternoon; providing a pathway to citizenship for ‘Dreamers’ but omitting funding for President Trump’s signature campaign promise: The Border Wall.
The new legislation reportedly grants citizenship to those protected under former President Barack Obama’s recently rescinded DACA policy -estimated to be anywhere between 700,000 and 1.8 million people- but neglects addressing the President’s key immigration issues such as “chain migration” or the “Visa lottery.”
Most notably, the proposed bill fails to fund the President’s barrier along the nation’s southern border with Mexico.
President Trump has routinely stated there can be “no deal on DACA” that does not include “strong border security and the desperately needed wall.”
“Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!” tweeted the President earlier Monday.

DACA DELUSION: Kirsten Gillibrand Says ‘Chain Migration’ is a ‘RACIST SLUR’
New York Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand continued her crusade against President Trump’s proposed immigration overhaul on Monday; telling television viewers that the term “chain migration” is somehow a “racist slur” against immigrants and foreigners.
Gillibrand was speaking with ‘The View’ when she unloaded on the President’s proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for ending “chain migration” and increased funding for his border wall.
“Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again’ and that’s what this is all about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“I think a lot of President Trump’s rhetoric is racist. Let’s be very clear: When someone uses the phrase chain migration it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur, it is not right. We have to change the debate” Gillibrand said.

Pelosi Says ‘God Is With’ Democrats on DACA
Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi believes liberal lawmakers have the moral high ground on the ongoing immigration debate in the United States, strangely suggesting that “God is with” the Democratic Party regarding DACA and Dreamers.
The House Minority Leader was addressing reporters on Thursday when she was asked if she’d be willing to accept border wall funding or a crackdown on illegal immigration to reach a deal with President Trump on DACA.
“Have you changed your mind at all about being willing to accept some border wall funding or immigration crackdown funding within a DREAM Act fix?” asked one journalist.
“We’ve said to the president the night he agreed to the DACA legislation that we have a responsibility to protect our border, and we find — think are many things we can do working together to do that. And members have been working in a bipartisan way to address that,” said Pelosi.
“But I’m optimistic. I always have been. God is with us on this. Our country is great. We know their greatness springs from the vitality that newcomers bring to our country. 80 percent at least of the American people support the DREAMers,” she added.
