Democrats and cheap labor Republicans may push an amnesty for illegal aliens in the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress. One possible strategy may be to offer President Trump funding for a border wall in exchange for signing an amnesty bill for 3.5 million illegal aliens in the DACA category. Immigration reform advocates say this would be a bad deal because a wall alone would do little to stop illegal immigration, while amnesty would be a strong encouragement for more foreigners to come to this country illegally.
Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) may lead this effort. The billionaire Koch brothers are spending millions of dollars to support a DACA amnesty during the lame-duck session.
