And why stop at DACA? Just as only Nixon could go to China, it may ironically be that only Trump could do immigration reform. Based on what has transpired these last 24 hours, this sounds crazy. But with Trump’s support, I firmly believe most Republicans would support DACA and amnesty—contingent on the construction of a border wall and the ending of chain migration. But Democrats would have to support funding a wall to get this done.
The word “amnesty” drives Republicans insane. The word “wall” has the same impact on Democrats.
This is what’s called a fair trade.
As far as I can tell, there are three valid reasons to oppose the wall, but none of them are a hill to die on.
