The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire donor class organizations is “encouraged” by President Trump’s latest immigration offer, calling it a “significant step toward” amnesty for illegal aliens.
Over the weekend, Trump offered Republicans and Democrats a plan to give amnesty in the form of three-year work permits to a little more than 700,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Deal - Nationals - US - Temporary - Protected
The deal gives the roughly 325,000 foreign nationals living in the U.S. on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) amnesty to remain in the country as well. In return, about a fifth of border wall funding — $5.7 billion — would be secured to build a barrier at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The Koch brothers’ network of libertarian organizations — Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Partners, and the LIBRE Initiative — released a statement supporting Trump’s offer to extend Obama’s executive amnesty:
Trump - Offer - Immigration - Deal - US
Trump’s offer is nearly the identical immigration deal that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce lobbied the administration to push.
In a letter to Congress and Trump weeks ago, Chamber of Commerce executives asked the White House to craft and promote a deal that extended Obama’s executive amnesty and gave TPS beneficiaries amnesty.
Chamber - Deal - Border - Security - Protection
“The Chamber supports a deal that combines increasing border security with protection and legal status for Dreamers and long-term beneficiaries of the TPS program,” a Chamber of Commerce executive wrote.
For the past year, some of the biggest donors to the Republican Party — including the multinational corporation AT&T and Steve Schwarzman of the Blackstone Group — have demanded amnesty for DACA illegal aliens.
Class - Trump - Offer - Sen - Lindsey
While the donor class supports Trump’s offer — which was crafted by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), White House adviser Jared Kushner, and Vice President Mike Pence — his base of supporters is less enthusiastic.
