The Trump administration has released an immigration plan that could lead to 1.8 million new citizens AND the much-anticipated wall. And considering building the wall has been the law for nearly 13 years now, it’s about time they actually got it done, don’t you think?
But wow, is there anything sillier than Kamala Harris waxing poetic about ‘American values’?
The immigration plan announced by the White House tonight is a complete nonstarter. Pitting young Dreamers against immigrant families runs counter to the values of our country.

Which value? Respecting the law of the land? Cherishing citizenship? Living here LEGALLY?
No, not at all. Not that it matters but our values where based on people who want to become citizens which has nothing to do with ILLEGAL immigrant families.

Forget that Obama created this mess because he was too lazy to actually work with Congress and fix our immigration system which is truly a disaster, but now it’s somehow the Republican’s responsibility to fix everything?
It makes perfect sense to encourage those who are lawfully seeking to immigrate. Stuff a sock in it, cupcake.

Gettin’ rough in here.
For someone who's a lawyer, you're not too swift with the law, are you?

But lawyers know ALL the things.
What do you or any other politician know about “our values”
You people are always on TV saying this or that goes against “our values”
Middle class America is just trying to survive
We want to take care of our families not other peoples families and certainly not other countries

We’re going to guess Kamala hears this A LOT.
SHE speaks of values? Hahaha

Not sure that word means what she thinks it means.
Dems are the minority take the deal and protect us. You can fight another day

Even this Dreamer gets it, Kamala. Trump’s immigration plan could result in nearly two million new citizens …
My question, how do we support more people? We already can’t pay people who live here as is, social, medicare, etc. So can we with good conscience make our strain harder? We have so many problems right now. Im for legal immigration btw. And honestly no problem with DACA or TPS.

This is a fair question and asked with zero snark and a reminder that he supports legal immigration. And let’s be honest, most Americans DO support legal immigration, it’s the people who sneak into this country illegally and then expect us to make them legal citizens that make most of us nuts. Name another country where people illegally enter and then have the nerve to demand citizenship.
THAT runs counter to our values, Kamala.
