Democrats will own the DACA deportations when they begin

Feb. 16, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement declaring that Senate Democrats will own the DACA deportations when they begin because they couldn’t make a deal when they had the chance:

“Senate Democrats would rather deport DACA recipients than even do a minimal compromise with President Trump on extending DACA in exchange for building the wall proposed by Sen. Thune. The President has bent his campaign promises beyond the straining point by proposing a pathway to citizenship in exchange for basic reforms and security measures including the wall, and the Democrats would not take yes for an answer. The last two days have laid bare the reality of the Democrat Party that they would rather hold DACA recipients hostage than make any deal with President Trump.

“When the deportations inevitably begin, Senate Democrats will rightly own them notwithstanding their indignant press releases. It’s time to enforce our nation’s immigration laws and end the political gamesmanship and partisan manipulation by the radical left.

“It is time for President Trump and Republican leaders to take Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s no as his final answer.”
