Of Course: RINOs and Chamber of Commerce Employees in Senate Now Cooking up the "Conservative DREAM Act" to Keep Illegals In Country

See? They put the word "Conservative" in front of DREAM Act.

You stupid fucking toothless rubes are stupid enough to fall for that, right? All the people who speak Conservatese all day long is throw the word "Conservative" in front of something -- Conservative Socialism, maybe -- and you'll just drool and clap, right?

Well, they sure think so.

Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children, offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.

The legislation creates an avenue for Trump to both fulfill a campaign promise to end an Obama-era program known as DACA while yielding to what appears to be his personal desire to let these immigrants remain in the country.

"Who cares about DACA if there's a Dream Act," said a Republican involved with the policy negotiations and aware of Tillis’ plan.

...

The Tillis plan makes killing the deferred action program much more politically palatable. Republicans involved in the policy negotiations said Trump can claim a win with both his base for ending the program and the young people, for whom he promised to try to "work something out."

Yes, the "conservatives" will technically fulfill a campaign promise by ending DACA while in the meantime making DACA irrelevant by passing a law (rather than executive action) encoding all the provisions of DACA.

Notice there's no thought of using this "Conservative DREAM Act" as a bargaining chip, a quid pro quo, for the Wall or ending Sanctuary Cities.

Because "Republican" Senators don't want those things. They do want DACA. So they'll just give it away for free, the expressed will of their constituents be damned to hell.


Oh -- and you're not going to believe this. Conservative Stalwart P90X Enthusiast Paul Ryan, who is so, so dreamy and collegiate and so brave in not denouncing antifa, is totally on board:



Are you not thrilled to see what your years of support, donations, votes, and door-knocking have gotten you, Republicans?

I'm done with this party. They're going to be wiped out in the midterms and I will giggle.

Fuck them. And I don't really care if Trump gets impeached after that.
