On Thursday, the White House told reporters that the Trump administration will propose an immigration deal that will grant amnesty with a path to citizenship to 1.8 million so-called “Dreamers” in exchange for funding for a border wall and reforms to chain migration and the diversity visa lottery.

On his radio program, CRTV host Mark Levin interviewed CR Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz on the content of the deal and the political ramifications of supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants. Horowitz told Levin that the main problem with the Trump immigration plan is that Republicans have said up front they “badly want DACA” and have lost their leverage with the Democrats.

“Democrats have no incentive to ever agree” to the reforms in the deal, Horowitz said.


The Democrats “do not operate in good faith,” Levin said, questioning why Trump would offer amnesty with citizenship for more illegal immigrants than the total number of DACA recipients. “It’s a huge error. Huge.”

Towards the end of the interview, Levin said this was not the immigration deal conservatives expected from President Trump and urged congressional Republicans to fight against amnesty.

“We expect conservatives in Congress to hold the line,” Levin said.
