“WE HAVE A REAL IMMIGRATION CRISIS AND THAT THE SOLUTION IS A HIGH WALL WITH A BIG GATE — BUT A SMART GATE,” says…the NYT’s Thomas Friedman?
“We have a president who actually, when you think about it, Wolf, he has the chops with his base,” Friedman continued. “If he were to sit down, call Nancy Pelosi up, say, ‘We’re going up to Camp David. You bring your immigration team, I’ll bring mine. I’ll leave Stephen Miller at home, and we will actually sort out a compromise here.’ … Democrats were ready to fund more border security, but at the same time we’re going to create a legal pathway for people here, limits the number of ICE arrests and we’re going to have a rational inflow of people.”
As David Martosko of London Daily Mail quips on Twitter, “First Cher, and now Thomas Friedman. These things happen in threes, so it’s your move [Kathy Griffin].”
