WEB Notes: Trump had made this known even before he was sworn in. We reported on December 8th 2016 that he would “work something out” for illegal immigrant “children”.
This guy has flip flopped so many times now he should consider being a gymnast. I actually feel bad for those who bought into the lies this con man put forward. But what did we expect? 90% of Americans did not want him or Clinton to be our next president. As we said, the people never had a choice to begin with.
Young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and now in the country illegally can “rest easy,” President Donald Trump says, telling the “dreamers” they will not be targets for deportation under his immigration policies.
Trump, in an interview Friday with The Associated Press, said his administration is “not after the dreamers, we are after the criminals.”
The president, who took a hard line on immigration as a candidate, vowed anew to fulfill his promise to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. But he stopped short of demanding that funding for the project be included in a spending bill Congress must pass by the end of next week in order to keep the government running.
“I want the border wall. My base definitely wants the border wall,” Trump said in the Oval Office interview. Asked whether he would sign legislation that does not include money for the project, he said, “I just don’t know yet.” Throughout the campaign, he had firmly and repeatedly guaranteed that Mexico, not U.S. taxpayers, would pay for the wall.
