Trump is transforming the GOP against legal immigration. Will Congress follow?


In exchange for protecting them, Trump wanted more restrictions on legal migrants from Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, among other changes. Those demands come as Trump has already put the country on track to remove 1 million immigrants over the next two years. Now, many Republicans in Congress have shifted to a more restrictionist position, following Trump’s lead. Starting March 5, unless Congress acts, about 1,000 DACA recipients each day will lose their legal protections and face potential deportation. “For years, people would always say, ‘I’m against illegal immigration; I’m not against legal immigration.’ Now, we find out a lot of them are against legal immigration, and they were just waiting for the right time to say it,” he said.
