  1. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    People used to be outraged that people got in here illegally to begin with.

    Is the sacramento bee better for you? http://www.sacbee.com/news/politics-government/capitol-alert/article195434569.html How about this one? https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/California-democrats-want-businesses-to-give-half-12508742.php How about something called "biphoo"? https://www.biphoo.com/bipnews/politics/california-dems-propose-surcharge-on-businesses-to-fund-social-programs.html How about the bill itself? http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180ACA22 Sorry if the sourcing wasn't pure enough for you guys. Maybe you would have preferred I found a kid on twitter with 58 friends and linked it from him? It's still the same bad policy....wherever it's sourced from.

    Good Lord...if you're opening a business, open it as far away from California as possible.... http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/01/20/california-dems-propose-surcharge-on-businesses-to-fund-social-programs.html

    No, the shutdown per se won't affect it......
  5. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    There should be no cart blanche on DACA. In my view, if the dems want anything remotely resembling a break for DACA folks, they have to allow funding of the wall and agree to stop chain and the lottery. Then there can be a discussion of whether *some* DACA folks can stay. It should be a rigorous process to even have the shot to stay. This was a BS program from the start. That's my position, anyway. I have no idea with the President will do.

    One 'little' thing. Good one. I hope he just lets it lapse and deports them all. Happy to talk about re-application, on the government's terms.
  7. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    It's the truth. Immigration has no business being in the discussion about whether the government should stay open. Just like Chuck Schumer said in 2013. Putting it there makes this a flat loser for the dems. The longer it goes on, the better it actually gets for Republicans. Because remember....
  8. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    A decision to let illegals stay in the country is not something that should have ever happened via executive order. That is what I meant. Trump can fix it. He can simply let it expire and choose whether to deport or not. If the democrats were smart, they would take this thing out of the CR to keep the government open and make it its own standalone issue. But fortunately they have leadership that is completely inept, so now they've boxed themselves into looking like they want to keep the government closed because they care more about illegals than the American people. It is a 'brilliant' strategy.
  9. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    No president should have had to "fix" this. It never should have happened to begin with.
  10. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Well, the thing is, DACA shouldn't even be part of this discussion. I don't think Trump really wants to give the DACA people a free ticket in. At least I hope he doesn't. I think all of them should be deported. Having said that, you can set up a system where there is some intense background checks into these folks. Your all A student who has stayed out of trouble....he or she might get to apply for re-entry legally and the chance for citizenship. Not all of them will- or should, be able to reapply, however. And certainly not all at once. Maybe only 20% or so- who knows what that number is, but it sure isn't all of them. Trump shouldn't just give in on this one. It was a misguided program from the start. The BS compassion argument coming from the dems now on this is just a scam. They don't give two rips about these people and they never did. They just wanted the shot at more voters- nothing more.
  11. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Nope. I plan appropriately. I don't allow the government to use my money all year unnecessarily.
  12. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Not if they agree to compromise. If they don't? Well, we've got hundreds of thousands of "non-essential workers". Let them be non-essential for a few more weeks....
  13. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    They think they have leverage. But they are too dumb to realize that Trump is willing to keep the government shut down for 6 weeks if necessary to allow DACA to expire.
  14. POTUS Impeachment Watch

    He didn't alienate them. He told them what a great day it was to march since he's rebuilt their economy and put them back to work. Now, if they want to celebrate by dressing as genitalia, that's their business....
  15. The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The dems have no leverage in this. They can continue to insist on making their "my way or the highway" stance on immigration a condition of opening the government. But Trump can just tell them to go pound it and wait for DACA to expire, then start deportations. They have zero leverage. The longer it goes on, the louder the campaign ads will be.
