Thom Tillis is Working on a Bill That Will Grant Amnesty to MILLIONS of Illegal Aliens

If ONLY he fought this hard for ObamaCare repeal.  (You know, like he promised when he ran against Kay Hagan.)

Once again, McClatchy is fawning over Thom Tillis’s leadership on immigration reform — this time branding his efforts “conservative”: 

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.[…]

First, Tillis “conservative”?  This man is currently rocking a 37% conservative ranking — making him the most liberal Republican in the North Carolina delegation.

Second, if you promise not to punish someone for breaking the law, that is AMNESTY (i.e., “tax amnesty”).

[…] “Who cares about DACA if there’s a Dream Act,” said a Republican involved with the policy negotiations and aware of Tillis’ plan.

Trump has wrestled with the politics versus the personal on this issue since Inauguration Day, recognizing that whatever he decides to do about the roughly 800,000 young immigrants known as Dreamers will anger many and shape his legacy.

These people don’t want the wall.  And they want the US Chamber checks to keep flowing.  (*SIGH*)

[…] 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.”

Details are still being worked out, but the Tillis plan would be a companion proposal to a House bill introduced by Miami Republican Carlos Curbelo.

Like Curbelo’s bill, the Tillis plan would offer an eventual path to U.S. citizenship for immigrants who entered illegally before Jan. 1, 2012, and were 16 years old or younger.

The proposal would grant high school graduates without a serious criminal record conditional immigration status for a five-year period. During that time, if they earn a higher-education degree, serve in the military or stay employed, they could apply for permanent residency and, eventually, citizenship.

About 2.5 million Dreamers would be eligible.
