The White House announced the President’s outright opposition to a bipartisan immigration bill making its way through the Senate Thursday, saying the proposal would “drastically change” the nation’s immigration laws and would significantly “weaken border security.”
The Trump administration released an official statement on the legislation Thursday as Senators publicly debated providing a “pathway to citizenship” for nearly two million DACA recipients; claiming the move would encourage “millions of additional minors” to flood into the United States.
“This amendment would drastically change our national immigration policy for the worse by weakening border security and undercutting existing immigration law,” the White House said in a statement.
“The administration is committed to finding a permanent, fair, and legal solution for DACA,” the statement added. “But this amendment would only compound the problem by encouraging millions of additional minors to be smuggled into the United States. We need to solve the problem, not perpetuate it indefinitely.”
President Trump has repeatedly claimed he supports a permanent solution to ‘Dreamers’ currently residing in the United States, but has also vowed to veto any proposal that does not secure funding for his signature campaign promise: The border wall.
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.

BOOK OF NANCY: Pelosi Invokes THE POPE, ROSARY During EIGHT HOUR DACA Rant
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turned towards a higher-power during her eight-hour long speech defending DACA Wednesday, saying she should have brought her “rosary blessed by the Pope” to help Democrats pass legislation in support of nearly one million ‘Dreamers.’
Pelosi was speaking on the floor of the House when she suddenly mentioned Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, suggesting that liberal legislators should spend the day in prayer over new DACA legislation.
“During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our ‘Dreamers,’ I thought maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress. Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by the Pope,” said Nancy.
“I always remember Pope Benedict when he came. He spoke so beautifully,” she added. “He quoted an Augustine who seventeen centuries ago said that any government that is not formed to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.”
“His holiness goes on to say, ‘Sometimes it’s hard to define what justice is, but in doing so we must beware of the dazzling blindness of power and special interests,” Pelosi added.
