The Moment Majority Leader McCarthy Stopped Trump from Agreeing to Feinstein’s DACA Plan

Thanks to Congressman Kevin McCarthy of Bakersfield, the Feinstein scam on illegal aliens was stopped.  She wanted the President to approve DACA now, Then after that passed she was willing to negotiate the Trump immigration plans.  As McCarthy noted once DACA was the law (it is now an illegal act by Obama, not Congress) there is no reason for the Democrats to end chain migration, the diversity lottery and other common sense reforms.

“A concerned GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who was sitting two seats away from Trump, quickly interjected to inform the president that Feinstein’s plan was not as optimistic as it sounded. It would not, for instance, include the additional border security for which the administration has long been clamoring.

Conservatives were just as peeved by Trump’s declaration that the immigration bill that reaches his desk needs to be a “bill of love.”

We need to be ready to push Congress and the White House to do the right thing—for America, not the special interests or the political aspirations of the Socialist/Democrat Party.

ICYMI: The Moment Majority Leader McCarthy Stopped Trump from Agreeing to Feinstein’s DACA Plan

Cortney O’Brien, Townhall,  1/10/18

It was a remarkable moment during a remarkable meeting.

President Trump held a bipartisan discussion with top senators on Capitol Hill Tuesday to discuss how they can usher in immigration reform. The cameras were rolling the whole time.

In an effort to seize the opportunity of being right across the table from the president while he seemed to be in a conciliatory, impressionable mood, Feinstein suggested kicking off immigration reform by voting on a “clean DACA bill.”

The president was intrigued.

“We’re going to do DACA, and then we can start immediately on the phase two, which would be comprehensive,” he said. “I think a lot of people would like to see that. But we need to do DACA first.”

A concerned GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who was sitting two seats away from Trump, quickly interjected to inform the president that Feinstein’s plan was not as optimistic as it sounded. It would not, for instance, include the additional border security for which the administration has long been clamoring.

Conservatives were just as peeved by Trump’s declaration that the immigration bill that reaches his desk needs to be a “bill of love.”

Liberal outlets, meanwhile, commended Feinstein for trying to pull one over on the president and excoriated Trump for not knowing his own policy positions. Two weeks ago, he insisted that he would not sign any bill on DACA until he got his border wall funding.

“Why, it’s almost as if he has no idea what he’s talking about,” GQ wrote.

Trump may have nearly conceded to a Democratic plan, but he did also double down on a border wall. He said he could get it done for less than the $18 billion initially proposed.
