Members of Congress are working on a program to address the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Will the GOP be better served to focus on a wall along the country’s southern border, or reforming chain migration? A roundup of editorials Friday looks at DACA, the wall and immigration reform.
Opinions from the right:
From The Detroit News: The Democrats would be foolish to pass by the door Trump has opened to immigration reform.
The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards. Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and USA would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2018
From the National Review: Deal with DACA, but first tackle chain migration and E-Verify.
From Fox News: It’s the wall we need to have before other immigration measures are dealt with.
