Senate Dems and RINO hacks are digging in their heels. They want to give DACA recipients and family members [chain migration] citizenship without funding for the border wall.

“If we don’t change the legislation, if we don’t get rid of these loopholes where killers are allowed to come into our country and continue to kill–gang members…

“If we don’t change it let’s see a shutdown. We’ll do a shutdown. And it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to have a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of,” President Trump said.


On Monday, President Trump unleashed on his Twitter account

POTUS Trump: “Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!”

On Tuesday the President tweeted about illegal immigration and our need for stronger border security and brought up Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson who was killed by an illegal alien drunk driver on Sunday.

POTUS Trump then hammered chain migration.

“We need a 21st century MERIT-BASED immigration system. Chain migration and the visa lottery are outdated programs that hurt our economic and national security.”
