RINO Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has just cooked up a new DACA bill with no border wall funding. Now, McCain’s bill needs a burial plot and ceremony after President Donald Trump just killed it with three words.
John McCain is back in the political meth-lab, cooking up a new batch of liberal stupidity that is sure to piss off millions of American patriots who are waiting for President Trump to build the wall.
According to Daily Caller, the new DACA bill has been nicknamed the “McCain DACA fix.” However, once you see what’s in the bill, you’ll understand why Trump has taken a zero-tolerance policy on it.
The new bill is a joint effort between McCain and Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) that they are peddling as a fix for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. McCain and Coons reportedly announced the bill on Monday, February 5, 2018, which gives approximately 800,000 illegal aliens a pathway to citizenship.
Most notably, “McCain’s DACA fix” does not include any funding for Trump’s border wall or any other increased border security funding. Laughably, the bill will also require an extensive long and drawn out study to determine what border security measures are necessary if any. Whatever McCain is smoking is having a serious effect on his ability to understand one thing Trump sums up in three brutal words: “waste of time.”
“Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!” Trump tweeted as he took to Twitter on Monday, February 5, 2018, as news of “McCain’s DACA fix” surfaced.

I could not agree more with our brilliant President. McCain and his “fix” are nothing more than a recipe for disaster. If there is no funding for the border wall, there is no point in wasting any time debating the subject. In all honesty, McCain has to understand to some degree that he is simply posturing with this crap or trying to delay legislation that actually has a chance of getting signed into law.
John McCain released a statement in regard to his new bill. “For months, I have been calling on my colleagues to complete a bipartisan budget agreement to lift the caps on defense spending and fully fund the military,” he said in the statement. “While reaching a deal cannot come soon enough for America’s service members, the current political reality demands bipartisan cooperation to address the impending expiration of the DACA program and secure the southern border.”
What is so misleading about McCain’s statement is that he doesn’t want to secure the southern border and would rather see it patrolled by an underfunded and powerless U.S. Customs and Border Patrol Agency. Oddly enough, that is exactly how McCain’s buddy Barack Obama ran things to ensure a constant flow of illegal immigrants into our country during his time in office.
President Donald Trump is asking Congress for approximately $25 billion to build the border wall which would span nearly 700 miles of the southern U.S.-Mexico border. The President has been very clear from day one that border wall funding is one of his primary demands and must be part of any immigration bill that comes to his desk. Thank God, Trump is sticking to his guns on behalf of Americans while hacks like McCain push this nonsense in Congress.
McCain’s bill would likely exceed Trump’s proposal that provides 1.8 million young illegal immigrants legal pathways to citizenship. In addition, the new bill would provide legal protections and a pathway to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. since December 31, 2013.
A huge part of the argument for House and Senate Republicans is the issue of chain migration. While some GOP members are willing to grant legal protections for the 620,000 – 800,000 DACA recipients, many refuse to extend legal status or a pathway to citizenship for their extended family members. Trump has already proposed limiting those privileges to a spouse or child.
John McCain’s bill does include an annual $110 million grant for five years to help improve cooperation between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, but in reality, that is a sham. With the number of local law enforcement agencies being forced to shut their doors to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, more funding won’t have any significant impact on the relationship.
President Donald Trump has put lawmakers on notice that they have until March 5, 2018, to produce a viable option for the DACA program. McCain’s “fix” does not fall into that category and is pretty much dead on arrival. If John McCain really wanted to make a positive impact on our country, he would resign and never be heard from again.
