Conway: President's Immigration Plan Puts Americans First

(Fox News)

President Donald Trump's 70-point immigration plan, unveiled on Sunday night, addresses the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but it also deals with his priority to keep all Americans "safe and secure," senior counselor Kellyanne Conway said Monday.

"For years, this country, including Capitol Hill and the swamp, they always ask what more can we do for the illegal immigrant?" Conway told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "This president is asking what's fair to the American worker? What's fair to the American community?"

The plan, she continued, includes a call for 300 new immigration judges and additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

"We also want the safe return of children who are coming over unaccompanied," said Conway. "We also want the full construction of the border wall, and funding for it."

Conway added the plan also includes limits on chain migration.

The legislative package was created through the efforts of the White House, the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, Health and Human Services, Labor, and Border Patrol, among others, she added.

Conway, though, complained that the measure is a "major legislative initiative" put forward by the White House, but the media wanted to "cover intrigue" through focusing on Trump's day-long arguments with Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker.

After the announcement, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Sunday said in a statement the Trump administration's immigration plan "fails to represent any attempt at a compromise," a complaint Conway panned.

"What's reasonable is to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and also of the drugs coming over the border," Conway said. "The president has been very clear about that too. All the drugs coming over the border has to stop as well. And I would like to know what Sen. Schumer thinks is reasonable when we just see the statistics alone in terms of people ignoring the law."
