Arizona Senator says president “won’t get everything” he wants in DACA deal…
(Breitbart) Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) admitted on the Senate floor Monday that the Republican establishment does, in fact, have a different set of immigration priorities that are far from President Trump’s popular, pro-American immigration agenda.
In a statement on the Senate floor, Flake said that Trump “won’t get everything” he wants in a deal between Trump, the Republican establishment, and Democrats with respect to DACA, whereby nearly 800,000 to 3.5 million illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty and possibly a pathway to U.S. citizenship.
“Deals like this, where you need 60 votes necessarily involve compromise. No party, no individual is going to get everything that they want; the White House won’t get everything they want, the Democrats in Congress won’t, and neither will the Republicans. This will be a compromise.”
“I’m simply suggesting tonight – let’s get real about the time involved between now and when we have to fix this, and not think that we can simply kick the can down the road and put in some temporary fix, some kind of bridge later that will protect these kids…”
“Let’s all get serious, Republicans and Democrats – not coming forward to the table with unrealistic expectations about what can be part of this legislation. Let’s have something that we can put on the Senate floor by the end of the month to have sufficient time to get this fixed by March 5th. [Emphasis added]….
