That’s what’s on offer. Trump wants not just a wall, but a complete overhaul of our immigration laws. In other words, “comprehensive immigration reform.”
This is a deal the Democrats can’t resist. It solves DACA, which is their most urgent priority. It’s essentially slow motion amnesty, but Trump will get his border security, and we won’t be overwhelmed by illegals again. It’s a win-win. This is like Nixon-to-China. Only some one with the credibility of Trump can sell this to his base.
There are Democrats who understand this, and I think a deal is coming.
The only problem for the D’s is that this is an unalloyed triumph for President Trump. Will they let their hatred for Trump stop them from doing right? That’s the question.
