Report: Steve Bannon urged Trump to preserve Obama’s executive amnesty for DREAMers
Hot Air by Allah Pundit --
Hard to believe at first blush. Steve Bannon, nationalist and publisher of Breitbart, wants to legalize a class of illegals encompassing hundreds of thousands of people? But this at least would solve the lingering mystery of why Trump hasn’t rescinded DACA yet after making stronger borders the centerpiece of his campaign. I can’t buy that someone like Reince Priebus or even Mike Pence could convince Trump to step back on DACA given how many border hawks are in orbit around him — Jeff Sessions, Stephen Miller, and of course Bannon. If those three pushed him to send a message about enforcement by dumping Obama’s amnesty, surely they’d prevail.
But what if it wasn’t all three of them who were pushing him? What if the most powerful of the three, Bannon, was actually urging Trump to duck a fight on this topic?
