President Donald Trump said on Friday that he would be signing an executive order to give “Dreamers” a pathway to citizenship, although an administration official quickly issued a statement that seemed to walk that back.

The president made the announcement while speaking with Telemundo on Friday.

“And I’m going to be over the next few weeks, signing an immigration bill, a lot of people don’t know about it, you have breaking news, but I am signing a big immigration bill,” said Trump.

“This is an executive order?” asked Jose Diaz-Balart.

“Do a big executive order, I have the power to do it as president, and I’m gonna make DACA a part of it, but we put it, and then we’re probably gonna be taking it out,” he added.

DACA stands for the Obama-era executive order that provided “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” on deportation. It was meant to provide a quasi-legal status to those who were brought into the country illegally as children.

“One of the aspects of the bill is going to be DACA. We are going to have a road to citizenship.”

The president went on to say that he, and a lot of Republicans, will be happy to give a road to citizenship to DACA recipients.

According to writer Ryan James Girdusky who spoke to Trump administration sources, the order would rescind DACA and replace it with a merit-based immigration program.

“The [executive order] does not include a path to immigration for DACA recipients… because it’s entirely illegal. The Trump Administration is still working on rescinding DACA,” tweeted Girdusky.

“This [executive order] is going to be all merit based immigration prioritizing based on skill,” he added.

Presumed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has released an immigration plan that would provide citizenship for up to 11 million illegal aliens.

    What shit, I thought Trump was better and smarter than this. We have too many of the bastards here now as it is, the illegals need to be deported, not have their asses kissed.

    I personally have no qualms about DACA residents getting U.S. Citizenship but with certain conditions put on them. Anyone receiving government entitlements would not be eligible. To get the immunity they would have to prove they are either full time students or have a job and are self-supporting. I do not see Democrats allowing such legislation to get through in an election year. Without concessions on other Immigration issues of importance, it makes no sense to throw the DACA people a bone.

      I think being a student should count AGAINST a DACA, not for. Most of them are the typical America-hating liberals who bash the US of A all day long on Twitter yet never put their money where their mouth is. If they’re self-supporting and willing to support their country, say with 1 or 2 years of mandatory service, and if they can pass a basic immigration test then fine, let them stay. But the Daniel Vargases who do nothing but badmouth our country shouldn’t be allowed to hide behind academia, especially with how treasonous and anti-American academia has become.

    EO——- GO TO THE IMMIGRATION OFFICE, PUT IN YOUR APPLICATION, WAIT FOR YEARS, PAY YOUR FEES, SWEAR IN AS A CITIZEN AND VIOLA! A CITIZEN.

    I think that is succint and to the point. Don’t you?

  • Gerry says:

    They’ve had a pathway ever since being brought into this country — if they haven’t tried by now — they don’t deserve one. !!!!! It is a good thing I have faith in Trump’s agenda because I don’t like this move.
