A leaked memo obtained by Axios reveals harsh analysis by President Donald Trump and his immigration team for the bipartisan immigration proposal brought to him last week during the now infamous "s***hole" meeting.

Trump's team did its own analysis of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) bill that was proffered by Sens. Lindsey Graham, Dick Durbin and Jeff Flake last week, and 5 points in the memo tell it all, Axios reports.

Team Trump's assessment, according to the leaked doc titled "Flake-Graham-Durbin Proposal Would Cripple Border Security and Expand Chain Migration:"

  • Proposal wouldn't come close to funding the border wall, at less than 10 percent
  • Keeps and expands chain migration
  • Fails to end the visa lottery program
  • Adds provisions for future protection of Dreamers which increase illegal immigration

And No. 5: offers amnesty to nearly 3 million DACA recipients and their families, a group 5-times larger than the Dreamers themselves, Axios reports.

Thought to be around 800,000, Trump team's assessment that the DACA number is closer to 3 million corresponds with a USA Today report that there are 3.6 million Dreamers currently in the U.S.
