If President Trump caves on Amnesty it could be equal to George HW. Bush “no new taxes'” pledge
President Trump says he is open to a pathway to citizenship for dreamers(in other words amnesty) who are here illegally.”We’re going to morph into it,” Trump told reporters Wednesday. “It’s going to happen, at some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years.”
The remarks came as the White House announced it would introduce legislation on immigration next week that it hopes can pass both the House and the Senate. The president’s remarks amounted to a preview of that legislation. He said he’ll propose $25 billion for building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and $5 billion for other security measures.
But immediately after Trump spoke, a senior White House official stressed the idea of a pathway to citizenship so-called Dreamers was just a “discussion point” in the plan that the White House intended to preview to the House and Senate.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to preview the administration’s thinking on a contentious issue that has roiled lawmakers for months.

Despite his previously harsh rhetoric, Trump told reporters he had a message for the Dreamers: “Tell ’em not to be concerned, OK? Tell ’em not to worry. We’re going to solve the problem.”
In 1988 at the Republican National Convention as George HW. Bush was accepting his party’s nomination he said “read my lips, no new taxes.” Then as President he went on to break that promise. In 1992 President Clinton then the slimy Governor of Arkansas whose only fame was raping Juanita Broaderick, Whitewater and Vince Foster’s suspicious death relentlessly used the “no new taxes” pledge to make Bush a 1 term President.
More than likely Trump a masterful negotiator is teasing the left with the amnesty tease. He will more than likely get what he wants without amnesty on the immigration issue because the American people are behind it. But if Trump does cave on amnesty gaining a second term is only going to happen because the Democrats running against him are so weak.
