OPED: Malkin: Hell To Pay IF GOP, President Trump Caves On Amnesty

Michelle Malkin said she largely approved of what she heard during President Trump's meeting with top Democrats and Republicans on immigration reform, but she warned there will be "hell to pay" if Trump reneges on his pledge that there will be no amnesty for illegal immigrants in the U.S.

During the meeting, Trump called on lawmakers to come up with a "bill of love" to keep hundreds of thousands of so-called DREAMers from having to leave the country, but also to deliver on his promise of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Some conservative commentators, including Tucker Carlson and Ann Coulter, have spoken out against Trump's apparent willingness to work with Democrats on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

"In the end, it doesn't matter what was said yesterday at the meeting," Malkin, a political commentator and CRTV host, said on "Fox & Friends."

She said what really matters is that Trump follows through on his promise to Angel Moms and Dads and the American workers who have lost their jobs to non-citizens.

"What he promised those people who went to bat for him in the election is 'there will be no amnesty.' That is as clear a statement and promise as you can make. And if he reneges on this promise, it will be hell to pay, not just for Donald Trump, but for the entire Republican Party."
