Chief of Staff John Kelly has been a disappointment. To the left. He was supposed to “control” President Trump. Instead, turns out he agrees with the president on a number of issues. Like on immigration. This recent comment has upset the anti-legal Democrats.
“There are 690,000 official DACA registrants and the President sent over what amounts to be two and a half times that number, to 1.8 million. The difference between 690 and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses, but they didn’t sign up.”
Maybe a little harsh. But considering how intellectually dishonest the left is (see Leftists Attack Trump Over Illegal Veteran’s Deportation. Which Was Ordered Under Obama… and Shutdown Schumer Says: Democrats Win if Media Shows Deportations), being blunt is a nice contrast. A contrast Kelly is not backing down from.
NEW: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly defends comment on people not signing up for DACA: "I gotta say that some of them just should have probably gotten off the couch and signed up." https://t.co/WMLlIq7zyI pic.twitter.com/UOQrSkmLYB

Here’s the thing — and it’s a question I’ve heard from many people. If the DREAMers knew they were here illegally for all these years AND they love America as much as they say, why didn’t they apply for legal residency? Some who have been here for twenty years. Why not renew your VISA?
I’ve yet to hear a good answer. Feel free to get back to me on this one.
