Democrats drooled over the prospect of boxing Donald Trump in.
Trump hosted a bi-partisan meeting at the White House over immigration and Democrats walked in believing the deck was stacked in their favor.
But then Trump turned everything on its head with one surprise move.
Democrats – and pro-amnesty Republicans – have never been forced to explain to the American people exactly what it is they support.
They hide behind clichés about “securing the border” and making the immigration system “work.”
These open borders champions are never put on the spot in public and forced to defend their views.
When Trump invited 23 lawmakers to the White House to discuss immigration, everyone figured it was a standard meeting where the cameras are present for a quick photo op and then the sausage gets made when the red lights gets turned off.
Trump invited the press to remain for a 55 minute meetings where Democrats were forced to admit they want amnesty for illegal immigrants with no money for the wall or reforms to chain migration or the diversity lottery.
Time and time again Demcorats pressed for a “clean” DACA bill.
Senator Diane Feinstein of California urged amnesty for the so-called “DREAMers” in exchange for a promise to pass border security legislation later.
But Trump insisted that a wall had to be a part of any deal.
He noted that the wall did not need to be the length of the 2,000 mile border, but that it was important to stem the follow of illegal aliens and drugs that pour into America.
Extraordinary event at the WH: The president invited the press pool into his meeting with congressional leaders on DACA. We stayed in the meeting for nearly one hour. Lots of talk of bipartisanship but the president also made it clear the wall must be part of any agreement pic.twitter.com/pc3iH5N8Ec
