John Kelly Says Illegals Who Failed To Sign Up For DACA May Have Been ‘Too Lazy To Get Off Their Asses’ To Do It

Democrats and Republicans are struggling to strike an immigration deal. And by that I mean, Democrats refuse to work with Republicans and flat-out refused to entertain President Trump’s proposal, even though he floated a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegals.

It’s a partisan game. They’re using illegals as a bargaining chip. President Trump totally called their bluff.

So here we are. No deal so far. President Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly spoke about this to reporters, and his remarks are triggering snowflakes everywhere. Reporters asked Kelly why Trump floated a deal that would boost the number of those eligible to 1.8 million, and he delivered an entirely honest answer.

“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,” Kelly said. “The difference between 690 [thousand] 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.”

Perhaps that sounds harsh, but isn’t that what we’re ALL thinking?

Oh please.

So triggered.

Joy Reid is the self-appointed spokeswoman for illegal immigrants of America. Just in case you didn’t know.

Right on Joy! Take, for instance, the illegal immigrant who murdered Colts player Edwin Jackson. He was previously deported more than once. It took effort to come back here ILLEGALLY. He’s definitely not lazy. So #persistent, right Joy?

The truth hurts.
