RNC Chairwoman: President Trump has led on Immigration
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: The President has led on immigration. He really has. Putting forward this deal with the pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers. The biggest ever deal with the request that we enhance our border security, we end the visa lottery system, that we end chain migration and focus on a merit-based immigration system. A system that helps our economy, that brings people in, that will fill jobs in our economy. Something that Canada does. The President has been so reasonable on this issue. He has put forward a deal that Democrats would have jumped at under President Obama and it shows how disingenuous the Democrats are. They don't want to work with the President on any issue, even if it's good for people they are claiming to represent. So the President is leading the way on this.
RNC Chairwoman: We want the Hispanic community to know that they have a home in the Republican Party
CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL: Well, yesterday I held a house party in Miami with people from the Hispanic community, and we talked about how under President Trump Hispanic unemployment is at an all-time record low, 4.9 percent. We talked about the tax cuts. I had a businessman there who said, 'I left the Republican Party, I am a small business owner,' his name was Guido, he said ,'But because of President Trump and his championing of the average person, those small business owners, and now with this tax cut, I have faith in this country and the Republican Party again.' And we have especially reached out to the people of the Puerto Rico community, so many of them devastated by the hurricane who have come to Florida. We have been reaching out to them. We want them to know that they have a home in the Republican Party. We have just have had so many great events here in Florida, and we are going to continue to do that all through this election cycle and beyond.
