Trump looking for compromise

Trump looking for compromise

1101trump-master768 President Trump, signaling a potentially major shift in policy, told news anchors on Tuesday that he is open to a broad immigration overhaul that would grant legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants who have not committed serious crimes.

“The time is right for an immigration bill as long as there is a compromise on both sides,” the president told the TV anchors at the White House, according to people present during the discussion. The people requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the private meeting.

The idea is a sharp break from the broad crackdown on undocumented immigrants that Mr. Trump has taken in his first weeks in office and the hardline positions embraced by his core supporters that helped sweep him into the White House. This fact alone is a precept that President Trump should look at with a sincere heart. It is always a great negotiator that will not find “a bridge” meaning those millions who voted for him.

The standard could apply to virtually any one of the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally.

The White House did not dispute the report, but Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the deputy press secretary, said she had not witnessed the conversation so was unable to confirm it.

“The president has been very clear in his process that the immigration system is broken and needs massive reform, and he’s made clear that he’s open to having conversations about that moving forward,” Ms. Sanders said. “Right now, his primary focus, as he has made over and over again is border control and security at the border and deporting criminals from our country, and keeping our country safe, and those priorities have not changed.”

The president’s remarks about immigration came the day before Mr. Trump was to issue a new version of his executive order banning travel to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries and suspending the acceptance of refugees. The ban has been revised because of legal challenges.

The standard could apply to virtually any one of the estimated 11 million people in the country illegally. With sincerity of heart, why are we looking to reward instead of punishing?  When one breaks the law or is in a place where a law is broken — one should be mindful and be accommodating. Forbearance. Illegal’s who no fault of their own should either be fined because of their parent’s action or should look to pay a fine anyway simply because people are aware that they are part of an illegal act.
