Donald Trump said on Friday that he would refuse to sign the new moderate Republican immigration bill from the Congress that would stop him from implementing his much maligned policy of separating children from their parents at the border.
In an early morning interview with his all time favorite show "Fox & Friends," Trump said...
"looking at both" immigration proposals put forth by GOP members of the House... the compromise bill, as well as a more conservative measure. I certainly wouldn't sign the more moderate one,"
Trump made the comment even though the bill would give him an additional $25 billion in funding for his wall along the southern U.S. border.
The bill even ties the legal status of DACA recipients to uninterrupted border security funding which would solve a myriad of problems Trump is presently facing.
So in addition to getting his "big beautiful wall" the bill would also solve his DACA problem and get the Republicans, Democrats and Christian conservatives off his back for the forced separation of families at the border.
Apparently Trump just loves tearing the babies out of their Mother's arms... Or at least he knows it really turns his base on.
Regardless the Congress is scheduled to vote on the legislation next week, in addition to a more conservative bill.
Amid his growing problems Trump has resorted to blaming the Democrats again for all of his woes claiming in the same interview that...
“The Democrats forced that law upon our nation. I hate to see separation of parents and children. I hate the children being taken away. The Democrats have to change their law. That’s their law. That’s the Democrats’ law,"
This despite the fact that this was a deliberate policy shift implemented by Trump who has the power to unilaterally reverse it if he chose to do so.
And lets not forget that the Republicans are the majority in the Congress, the Senate.
