Confused? Wait, it gets worse. The House is expected to take up the issue later this month, and they are likely to throw in some monkey wrenches of their own with less protection for DACA recipients. Meanwhile, the only solution we’ve heard likely to win Democratic votes is the one advanced by Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake who would extend DACA for three years while granting $7.6 billion for border security, a short-term patch that gives both sides a small win while giving assurances to Dreamers that no matter how the courts rule, they are safe for the next 36 months. Would the House go along? Perhaps if President Trump got behind it, which, given his actions of late, doesn’t appear likely. Rather, he seems to like falsely proclaiming immigrants to be a national security threat or a costly drag on the economy when they are nothing of the sort, all to appeal to his right-wing base. It was this president who targeted Dreamers, now he’s keeping them living in fear for political advantage. Where is that “bill of love” guy when you really need him?
