Michael Warren: The Strict No Border Security at All Position Is Not Politically Palatable for Dems
WARREN: "Well, I think you heard from Tim Ryan who I believe is also considering possibly running for president as well sort of trying to find a middle ground there for Democrats recognizing that sort of a strict no border security at all position for Democrats is not politically palatable for them. This is a problem for the Republicans as well and the Trump Administration. As far as my reporting tells me, there is not a consistent view within the White House about what exactly they’re willing to negotiate on or not. They’ve laid out these principles. But also the president has indicated and sent signals in the meeting last month from the White House he was willing to negligent. Then the White House says these are our priorities. They must get passed if there will be a DACA fix. I think perhaps there is more clarity behind the scenes we aren’t seeing in public but the public message the White House is sending and Democrats on Capitol Hill are sending don’t give us a clear path forward as far as I can tell."
