DACA

Build a wall around DACA

Editors, Washington Examiner

DACA carries the seeds of its own expansion. To prevent this, Trump and congressional Republicans should hold fast and make sure the bill is coupled not only with tougher immigration enforcement but also with root and branch reform of policies on green cards and visas.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Why simple truths & facts on race need defending in post-Obama America

We wish it were as easy as making things up when we’re in need of the details, but with the left’s virtually unchallenged promotion of falsities and lies on race, our society is in bad need of the truth. Therefore it’s up to all of us to be vigilant in defense of the real facts.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: ‘Presidential’ UN speech puts Trump’s world legitimacy crisis to rest

With greater international acceptance of his legitimate position as president, Trump’s domestic polling numbers will continue to tick up in the coming months. If the GOP Congress is able to add a few legislative victories to his resume Trump will look awful good indeed.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump has become the epitome of the un-Republican

Donald Trump is doing things differently; he’s upset the Washington status quo and people are responding to it. Trump’s moves may look strange from a conventional standpoint but it’s clear there’s more to him than meets the eye. He’s very un-Republican-like indeed.

Over DACA, an acute case of Trump Panic Syndrome

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The whole episode changed pretty much nothing. Anyone who followed Trump during the campaign knows he is headed toward some sort of accommodation for DACA recipients. And anyone who follows the Trump administration and Congress knows there will be showdowns on Capitol Hill over the wall and other border security and enforcement measures. That is where the DACA issue stood before the freakout of Wednesday night and Thursday morning, and that is where the issue stood afterward. All that panic for nothing.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: By flirting with Dems is Trump just trying to make GOP leaders envious?

The days and weeks ahead will reveal more of what President Trump really thinks about immigration. For now conservatives should be confident that he has not yet revealed all of his cards. Above all Trump wants to keep his promises; perhaps he needs a little leeway to do just that.

When Did We Start Believing Pelosi And Schumer?

The White House and Congress are going to talk about how to resolve DACA, that means we conservatives must get organized to fight another battle like the one that defeated Eric Cantor in 2014 and brought the last discussion of an amnesty bill to an abrupt conclusion.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Establishment still suffers from Steve Bannon derangement syndrome

Donald Trump’s political legacy is yet to be fully written. He’s a one-of-a-kind force in American politics. If Republican leaders were smart they’d follow his lead or the voters just might recognize the GOP for what it’s become: an establishment party that doesn’t stand for anything.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Conservatives beware of West Wing Democrat salesmen bearing promises

Passing tax reform should be a no-brainer for the GOP. They run on the issue every year and there’s broad consensus that rates need to be cut. Donald Trump’s presidency could hinge on what takes place in the next few months; beyond that, the entire republic could be at stake.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Donald Trump’s 2020 reelection prospects already plain for all to see

If Donald Trump continues to push the right political buttons – and Republicans in Congress actually move forward on the agenda he articulated during last year’s campaign – he will win over more voters and his current popularity numbers won’t be a problem.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Betsy DeVos and Hillary Clinton -- a Tale of Two Washington Women

It used to be the Constitution brought Americans together but that’s no longer true. These days, as Betsy DeVos demonstrated, returning to our country’s founding principles only brings one scorn, condemnation and evil wishes from people who use the system for their own aims.

DACA: Trump Does the Full Obama on Prosecutorial Discretion

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Obama disingenuously invoked “prosecutorial discretion” when, in reality, he was choosing not to enforce congressional statutes to which he objected on policy grounds. Now, prompted by Pelosi, Trump has reaffirmed Obama’s prosecutorial-discretion sleight of hand. In fact, Trump’s action is arguably worse — yet another instance of the folly of announcing policy via Twitter and its 140-character limits (including exclamation points!).

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could the best option on North Korea be to simply do nothing?

If some politician out there has a better solution than the man on the street to the North Korea situation, we’d all like to hear it. In the meantime Americans simply want their towns and cities protected and their sons and daughters to remain safely away from any military conflict.

Outsiders vs. Insiders: Could trained chimps help Donald Trump more than Ryan and McConnell?

Donald Trump seems driven by a determination to “Make America Great Again” by making everything shine just like one of his skyscrapers. Republican leaders could work effectively with the president if they only understood what really motivates him. Will they ever learn?

There Is No Such Thing As a 'Deserving DREAMer'

Michelle Malkin, Townhall

The left-wing DREAM racket is a self-perpetuating political marketing machine. Its primary contribution to American society? Lashing out at how cruel, racist, ignorant and ungrateful the rest of us are for not bowing down before the hallowed angel children of the Obama administration's amnesty program.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Say Trump Should Skip Establishment Appointees

More than 98% agreed that the establishment should be blacklisted by Trump, given their lack of loyalty and the probability that they would become part of the army of anti-Trump leakers in the government.
