Americans Deserve a Better Border Deal
President Donald Trump’s proposed trade-offs to build his promised border wall give generous concessions to illegal aliens while getting little in return for the American people.Though there are some worthwhile components in the proposal, any deal that seeks to trade amnesty – in this case the extension of an amnesty – for more robust immigration enforcement is a bad deal.In exchange for $5.7 billion in wall funding, with additional money to bolster border security and clear immigration court backlogs, the president’s offer would guarantee:
- Three more years of protection to more than 700,000 illegal aliens in the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), giving them access to work permits and Social Security numbers.
- Three-year waivers of deportation to 300,000 illegal aliens currently on Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
