McCAIN’S MUTINY: McCain Pushes NEW IMMIGRATION BILL to KILL Border Wall Funding

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.05.18

‘Maverick’ GOP Senator John McCain and Democrat Senator Chris Coons plan to unveil a revised immigration bill Monday afternoon; providing a pathway to citizenship for ‘Dreamers’ but omitting funding for President Trump’s signature campaign promise: The Border Wall.

The new legislation reportedly grants citizenship to those protected under former President Barack Obama’s recently rescinded DACA policy -estimated to be anywhere between 700,000 and 1.8 million people- but neglects addressing the President’s key immigration issues such as “chain migration” or the “Visa lottery.”

Most notably, the proposed bill fails to fund the President’s barrier along the nation’s southern border with Mexico.

President Trump has routinely stated there can be “no deal on DACA” that does not include “strong border security and the desperately needed wall.”

“Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!” tweeted the President earlier Monday.
