(National Sentinel) No Deal: White House officials have pushed back against two reports on Wednesday that President Donald J. Trump would agree to amnesty for DACA recipients in exchange for a small amount of funding for his proposed border wall.
“The White House opposes a so-called three for three deal,” Shah told Breitbart News in a statement. “In fact, as a result of the caps deal, the routine appropriations process should yield wall funding in the Omnibus.
“Securing the border is one of the most vital functions of government and is a core part of any routine funding bill. Separately, we have never stopped working to negotiate an immigration reform package that addresses DACA, stops illegal immigration and secures and modernizes our legal immigration system,” he added.
Shah was responding to reports in the Washington Post and Politico that the Trump administration was considering an option to back a proposed spending bill that featured amnesty for illegal aliens protected from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in exchange for just three years of funding for a border wall, Breitbart News noted.
Shah’s statement makes clear that the White House is continuing to support a measure that funds the border wall and provides sanctuary “only those illegal aliens enrolled in DACA (nearly 800,000) to remain in the U.S. while reducing overall legal immigration levels to raise the wages and quality of life of America’s working and middle class,” the news site noted further.
That measure is supported by a majority of Americans, including a majority of blacks and Hispanics, according to a recent Harvard-Harris poll.
