Four pro-reduction Members of Congress were included in the bi-partisan group of Senators and Representatives that met with Pres. Trump today about creating a DACA deal.

But otherwise, the President was surrounded by champions of amnesties, increased foreign workers, gutted enforcement.

Here are the NumbersUSA Immigration-Reduction grades for the attendees:

F-grade: 14
D-grade: 3
C-grade: 3

The President made some troubling statements about being willing to pass a "clean" amnesty bill first and then dealing with other immigration issues later.

This is the statement I released to the media:

Amnesty-now and enforcement/reform-later agreements always fail the American people. We've had seven of these amnesties already. They all result in more illegal immigration and continued flooding of U.S. labor markets with a million legal immigrants a year. Pres. Trump must hold fast to his compact with American workers to greatly reduce both the illegal and legal competition from mass migration."
