Pres. Trump has shot down the bipartisan DACA deal. Should Pres. Trump demand funding for the border wall in exchange for a DACA deal with Congress? Vote in our CBC reader poll!

I think we should get a wall, with or without a Daca deal! Since when does our countries security depend on immigrants? I trust President Trump to make the best decision for America.

Anyone who thinks a bipartisan deal can be had that is good for America is being “played”. Democrats and RINOs, like Sen Flake, Graham, and McCain want low skill, unassimilated people pouring into the country to keep wages low and Americans dependent on the Government. I hope Mr Trump knows this, but I am beginning to wonder.

I don’t understand why it’s so difficult for law breakers to understand right from wrong!!!. Trump, do your job and follow our laws. Anyone illegally in our Country should go back to their Country. Take care of all our People first. That’s why we have so many without jobs, homeless and no food for regular meals. Not fair to all the people that came here the right way. President Trump, just do your Job the Right, Legal way. You have the majority of Americans Cheering for you, JUST REMEMBER THAT!!!!!!

The DACA PEOPLE SHOULD BE SENT BACK TO THEIR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN , JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE ILLEGAL LAW BREAKERS. America first all the time, every time .

Read these comments. The dem’s will treat immigrants the same as the African American community. They won’t work for their vote they will expect it.WAKE UP PEOPLE.
January 15, 2018,8:14 pm
No DACA…illegal is illegal…no VOTING RIGHTS. The cost burden to America is unfathomable. Democrats only look to future Votes.
Take care of Americans. Go ahead and get that wall built to keep the way beyond kids ages out. DACA WHAT A JOKE. END IT FOREVER…ANOTHER BUM OBAMA RAILROAD JOB!

Anti American Democrats want open borders so they can gain thousands of Democrat voters.
January 15, 2018,5:55 pm
The Dems have no desire to agree to any bill e present..They think we will continue paying their salaries and them always rejecting every you put before congress..your Agenda was spoken often all along in your speeches You didn’t use your campaigning time rallies and such to dig up or hire firms to COMPILE a lot of garbage and FALSE LIES while trying to corrupt your opponent’s character and integrity.. I am afraid the Dems are done UNLESS they straighten up..They seem to be worse than Labeled ENEMIES to u and AMERICA..

Just immigration. No daca deal.
January 13, 2018,8:04 pm
Bill, you have a tender heart–good–so do I but mine beats for this country first that has been under assault by illegals for decades. The way this works is; Dreamers today, Dreamers tomorrow, Dreamers with no end. That’s why the folks are angry and the door must be closed, then, only legal immigrants. The only concession I could make is that existing Dreamers be given a pathway to legal status but without citizenship and no more Dreamers. I agree that they like American culture but not enough to care about our laws or language which is exactly how they change our culture. Simply compare California today to decades past and you will see where we are going. I’m glad this conservative book club is not an echo chamber; it’s good to know what the liberal book club has to offer.
January 13, 2018,3:32 pm
Gary L. George – Dreamers were brought here as children and have been educated here. They do assimilate – in fact in many cases you’d be hard pressed to know their immigration status on meeting and talking with them. Many of them do not know any culture other than U.S.A. culture. They are football and basketball fans. They like American music, movies, and TV. They want to be a part of our culture, not change it. But under current law they do not have a reasonable route to becoming Americans. That is why Congress needs to act. Let them be productive members of the society in which they grew up.
January 13, 2018,2:51 pm
A lot of strong comments here. Is it OK to be illegal and force yourself in, make others pay, not assimilate, change our culture—and keep doing it year after year? That is the message that has been sent to the illegals which is why they keep coming. Time to shut the door, then open it to people who want to become Americans.
January 13, 2018,1:37 pm
Get the immigration deal you want without all the B/S or start deporting all illegal aliens regardless of what country they are from. Do it!!!
January 13, 2018,1:16 pm
Gary – You are a class act. Representative of some “fine” conservative thinking — if you were a slow 9 year old.
January 13, 2018,1:04 pm
If the U.S. Senate could vote in Gorsuch as a Supreme Court justice applying the “Nuclear Option,” then, they should apply it also to get the wall, cancel Obamacare, and pass all other major promises that Trump made on the campaign. If not, the Republicans will lose the majority in the 2018 elections, and everything will go down the tubes from there. This is our last chance to shape up the United States that the Obungler destroyed in the eight years from 2009-2017.
January 13, 2018,12:17 am
Cancel DACA since the Obungler created it unconstitutionally with an illegal executive order. We do not want anyone brought or kept here illegally. Best solution is to send them all to Haiti where they can start new lives on their own. The next best alternative solution is to send them all over to Puerto Rico, discontinue Puerto Rico as a territory of the United States, and make them a free nation of their own as we should never grant Puerto Rico statehood. Let the DACA people work with that wretched Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, to build that pathetic city.
January 13, 2018,12:06 am
Legal immigrants should wait along with all legal immigrants when their turn in line becomes next.
January 12, 2018,10:55 pm
A wall is: 1) prohibitively Expensive if built sea-to-sea 2) ineffective (the Berlin Wall didn’t keep western civilization from Eastern Europe & the Great Wall of China didn’t stop the Mongol hordes) 3) UN-Biblical (Jesus said [Matthew 25:40] “In that you have done it to the least of these, my brethren, you have done it to me” I wouldn’t DEPORT Jesus).
Also, the DACA illegals were brought here by their parents. Once here, BY OUR LAWS, we educated,fed,housed & provided them with medical care. Deporting them when they can start PAYING US BACK is fiscally irresponsible.
January 12, 2018,9:52 pm
Build the wall and don’t make a deal with the devil/demon rats! DACA is unconstitutional and the illegal aliens need to be deported ASAP!
January 12, 2018,7:38 pm
When I take the locks off of my doors then we should abandon checking our borders. Yes, build the wall, it is very cheap considering the money we spend to support the people who come here to bilk us. Try going to Australia, Russia, Japan and see what kind of welcome you’l have. To have a country with open borders is as stupid as me letting my chickens loose in a field of hungry foxes.

Where is his promise that “the MEXICANS will fund this, believe me.” ?
January 12, 2018,7:15 pm
1) bill is an idiot 2) Bill is a gay Dreamer 3)Shut up Bill 4) I just Corn-Holed Bill’s Daughter
January 12, 2018,7:08 pm
1) The “Wall” is a waste of money (U.S. taxpayers money since, gee, Mexico is not going to pay for it).
2) The Dreamers are a group of young adults who have done nothing wrong, other than to obey their parents who brought them here when they were children. By definition they have stayed out of trouble, finished high school, and the DACA program allows them to work and pay taxes (so they are not a burden).
3) The dreamers grew up in the U.S., they have been educated here, some know nothing of their birth country. Why kick them out when they want to stay and work — and pay into SS and federal, state, and local taxes.
4) The dreamers want permanent legal status, either as residents or citizens. They will go through the necessary steps — once those steps exist. Currently they cannot apply for residency or citizenship because of their presence in the U.S.
Does CBC stand for Conservative Book Club, or Cold-hearted Bigots Cult? Your choice.

I miss voted. The wall should be built without DACA. This country should not pay for benefits to people who come in illegally. This is an example of Obama going everything he could to destroy our way of life. DACA and the parents should be deported. It is not the American people’s fault they came here illegally nor should we welcome them with open arms.
January 12, 2018,6:38 pm
Build wall end DACA end chain migration end amnesty end visa lottery.
January 12, 2018,5:58 pm
Oh I totally agree with Larry Cantrell.
I wasn’t going to comment because I didn’t want to text so much … but Larry, you said exactly what I was thinking.
January 12, 2018,5:33 pm
The Democrats are just trying to finagle what they want into everything. The President should say no deal, but I want the wall!!!
January 12, 2018,5:06 pm
two wrongs don’t make a right
January 12, 2018,5:06 pm
I agree with the message from Diane Kelly–there’s at least 30 million illegals in America. We need to find a way to deal with them!! We need to put Ann Coulter in a position to do something about this.
January 12, 2018,4:58 pm
Why on earth do we feel as if we owe these Daca people anything? The ‘children’ and the parents[especially the parents] should be deported. Taxpayers are not obligated to make ANY deal with these people. Why doesn’t anyone care about Americans?
January 12, 2018,4:53 pm
The Dems don’t want a daca deal they want to blame the Republicans
January 12, 2018,4:42 pm
The wall should be built without a deal. But I know one will be needed. We need sixty votes in the senate. That’s a fact. And the sole reason the president wants to work with dems. If President Trump is cunning then he can make a deal, get the wall then deported the “dreamers” at a later date. And Trump should embrace the Coulter 30 Million. Ann Coulter believes there is 30 million illegals in this country and I do as well.
January 12, 2018,4:41 pm
The emphasis is wrong. Fund and built the wall first, before we discuss any DACA. Register all these supposed DACA and reeducate them on American constitution and correct government, investigate affiliations and political stand. Anyone anti-American values and will destabilize our country should not be allowed.
January 12, 2018,4:33 pm
We can get it all. We don’t have to give up our sovereignty or the US Constitution. First step is Senator McConnell changes the rules of the Senate to majority vote for all legislation to include upcoming continuing resolution. Separate Budget vote, DACA, Wall legislation, chain migration, and “bingo immigration”. Congress deal with one at a time. The opposition says, “When the Dems get majority they will do the same thing”……..when Jesus comes back it won’t matter.
January 12, 2018,4:32 pm
If he agrees to DACA before border security and other reforms are made, there would be no incentive for politicians to work on immigration. They will simply keep kicking the can down the road. If DACA is so important, than there should be a willingness to compromise on needed reforms (including yes, the wall).
January 12, 2018,4:31 pm
No, the wall should be built without a deal……..
January 12, 2018,4:30 pm
Why does the American taxpayers have to take care of them and not the Democrats who want them and using them for votes. This is not a humanitarian cause, his is about Demon rats votes. Born Americans, know the true and won’t vote for the Demon rats. Demon rats take you pay and send it to them in thier countries.
January 12, 2018,4:30 pm
Why is it these illegals getting it easy and the American kids don’t. They have dreams just like these illegals do. Why does the American taxpayers have to take care of them and not the Democrats who want them and using them for votes
January 12, 2018,4:24 pm
The President Trump needs to understand that yhere will b 13 million illegals to vote for liberals democrats we can have that
January 12, 2018,4:18 pm
We dont want a DACA deal.
All illegals need to be sent away asap
January 12, 2018,4:17 pm
If this is the only way he can get the wall built, yes.
January 12, 2018,4:13 pm
Trump is right demanding a wall in exchange for DACA.
January 12, 2018,4:11 pm
Is “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” worth the Oscar hype — or is it being promoted to spread an anti-conservative, anti-police message?
“We want immigration. But we want to vet these people. We want to know who they are and make sure they are going to be productive people. People who are flourish in America, who are going to not be terrorists, not be criminals.”
“It’s unconscionable, to watch the mob media do what they’re doing. Last week we were told the president was mentally unstable. For months before that we’re told he’s colluding with the Russians. Today we are told he’s a racist.”
DHS is considering charging sanctuary city leaders for flouting deportation laws. Should sanctuary city leaders face criminal charges? Vote now in our poll!
