With no end in sight on the government shutdown — now the longest shutdown in U.S. history — and absolutely no movement on the $5.7 billion Trump wants for his border wall, things are obviously getting a little desperate in the West Wing.

Trump took to Twitter on Friday to float the idea of a new path to citizenship for high-skilled workers in the U.S. on H-1B visas.

When comprehensive immigration reform was discussed in Washington in the past, these workers are a hot topic of conversation because of how critical they are to tech companies and other major players in our economy.

But it sure smells like some business group is pulling the puppet strings behind the scenes because Trump used to be steadfastly opposed to this kind of wheeling and dealing without his wall, especially on something as serious as citizenship.

Is the Chamber of Commerce, a notorious faux-conservative group that’s entirely too soft on immigration, wielding too much influence right now? Are they in cahoots with the Deep State trying to undermine President Trump?
