there's a deal for DACA (the illegals who came to the US as youths and are now what in their mid-20s) on the table which seems to satisfy no one
The deal on offer seems to be that DACA can stay in return for funding the wall, cutting down on chain immigration, more border patrol officers, etc
When reagan agreed to an amnesty in the 1980s, we were promised all sorts of improvements to border security, none of which ever materialized (kinda like the budget deal where reagan agreed to a tax hike in exchange for 2 dollars of cuts for every dollar of tax increases, but the cuts never ever materialized).
Back then, we were told the amnesty was for 1 million mexicans. After the event, we found it was actually 4 million, plus all the relatives that come with chain immigration
The dems and rinos don't want border security, and even if they go along with it, they'll drag it out until Trump leaves office, so it will never get done.
Conservatives don't want a DACA amnesty. That's at least 1 million new citizens (who will vote democrat) plus chain immigration, which would include the parents who took them to the border in the first place and were probably hoping for this all along.
If they have to stay, and I would prefer they went home, then NO CITIZENSHIP, EVER, so they can't vote and they can't bring relatives. If they want to be reunited with their families, they can go home to mexico which is the only home their families have ever known
