Clearly, many Americans are wondering about amnesty for illegal immigrants under the DACA program. You may be wondering too. Clearly, President Trump has made it clear that he wants nothing to do with amnesty for them, assuming you define amnesty as he does. Which he hasn’t made clear.
Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters explained the president’s position clearly Thursday:
The President has been clear in the past that there will be no amnesty. The Trump administration will not be discussing amnesty. What the Trump administration will discuss is a responsible path forward in immigration reform. That could include legal citizenship over a period of time. But absolutely by no means will this White House discuss amnesty, and the President has made it clear how he feels about no amnesty.
Reporters asked her for the definition of amnesty.
