Tucker Warns GOP In Danger Of Collapsing
A nation that is unwilling even to police its own borders will cease to exist to be a sovereign state… It’s not exactly rocket science. Weak civilizations pass into history and live only in books.
TDC: The already-divided Republican Party won’t survive if party leaders continue to betray their voters on immigration, Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson warned Thursday night.
President Trump is throwing away his only good bargaining chip by caving to Democratic demands on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program without securing anything in return, Carlson said. Trump said Thursday that a border wall — the signature policy of his presidential campaign — will have to wait until after Congress passes amnesty for DACA recipients, a position Trump opposed during the campaign. If Trump doesn’t get funding for the wall now, Carlson said, it will never happen.
“The president seems confident it will work out in the end, but there’s no reason to be optimistic. The fate of DACA recipients is, by far, the biggest piece of leverage he ever will have. If he gives it away for free, none of his other immigration priorities, the priorities he ran on and won the presidency with, will even be considered. All those ‘border security’ measures you keep hearing about? They’re ridiculous, they mean nothing,” Carlson said. “And in any case, they’ll be rolled back instantly the next time a Democratic president wins. If this president doesn’t get funding for a wall now, it will never be built, period.” More
