Laura Ingraham: Trump Will Not Be Re-Elected if He Sells Out on Immigration (Video)
As the senate works on a framework for immigration legislation that they hope to release next week, Fox News host Laura Ingraham has asserted in no uncertain terms that President Donald Trump will not be re-elected if he sells out his voters on the issue.
Discussing the issue on her show The Ingraham Angle on Thursday evening, the popular Trump-supporter did not hold back on how important it is that the president get this right.
“I got to say, the Republicans and Democrats watching this, your solemn duty is to the American people. The American people, not to the people of other countries who came here illegally, but to legal immigrants, and to American citizens, Ingraham said. “Donald Trump understands that. I don’t think he is going to, you know, sell out people on immigration. If he does, he is over anyway.”
There are few things that would be absolute deal breakers for President Donald Trump’s base — and immigration is probably one of the biggest.
“So — He is going to be done. If he sells us out on immigration, Donald Trump will not be re-elected president of the United States. I can tell you that right now, and I come as someone who is a great supporter of his,” she added.
On Thursday, Republican senators met with the president to discuss a plan that would tighten border security — but also create a “solution” for illegal immigrants who are currently protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
“We have to end chain migration to prevent a future set of new chain migrants coming,” Senator Tom Cotton insisted during the meeting.
Senate Democrats have been vowing to block short-term funding bills unless DACA illegals are protected.
Trump tweeted thanking the senators after Thursday’s meeting, and listed his top priorities for immigration reform — which included ending chain migration, cancelling the visa lottery and building the wall.
Thank you to the great Republican Senators who showed up to our mtg on immigration reform. We must BUILD THE WALL, stop illegal immigration, end chain migration & cancel the visa lottery. The current system is unsafe & unfair to the great people of our country – time for change!
