Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer DACA deal no cause for alarm — yet

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Donald Trump reportedly has struck a DACA deal with Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi. And already, the left is crowing, the right is gasping, and the media is spinning madly.

But let’s lower the eyebrows for a moment and take a breath. Since when do Schumer and Pelosi tell the truth?

And here’s the logical answer of the sane: Because they’re illegal. Because they have no right to citizenship or citizenship privileges. Because granting amnesty to those who are here illegally only sends the message to those…
