Highlights from The Intelligence Report:

The Outsider Effect: “It takes someone outside of Washington to get all of this done. That is why the Washington establishment, in particular the Democratic establishment, doesn’t know what to make of President Trump. He is an outsider, a business guy moving at a business pace. They don't know what to do with that.”

Driven By Results: “President Trump wants results just like last year. Now we see the aftermath of that in the economy. Two and a half million new jobs have been created, 860 regulations and rules reversed, and consumer confidence at an all-time high. We have to continue that through this year with infrastructure, immigration, and trade.”

Instinctively In Line: “Two weeks ago, we saw how out of touch Democrats are with the American people when they shut down the government over DACA. Two-thirds of Americans want to solve the DACA situation, but they also want to end chain migration and the visa lottery, while supporting border security with a wall. President Trump has been instinctively in line with the American people.”

Brilliant Move: “It shows you a little bit of the genius of this President. He put an immigration framework out there, and is daring Democrats to vote against it.”

Highlights from Mornings With Maria:

Rare Opportunity: “This is the best chance we've had to fix our archaic immigration system. This President went out on a limb and laid out a brilliant framework that we believe should get Democratic support.”

Ensuring Certainty: “President Trump said before he wants to give DACA recipients certainty. The only reason this makes sense is if you close the door on the possibility of this happening again. To do that you have to have border security and you have to build a wall and end chain migration and the visa lottery. If you do all of that, then this is a conservative solution to a 50-year problem.”

Partisan Divide: “What’s troubling to me was that we had so many Democrats sitting on their hands last night. It was very noticeable even on things that we all agree on. That does not bode well for their claim that they want a bipartisan effort on immigration.”

Big Government Fails: “This is what happens when big government doesn’t work. These ‘great’ federal programs, like the War on Poverty and the Great Society have all failed. So what happens is people out there in the real world step up and take care of their people. Look at Walmart, they’re giving a $5,000 bonus to people who want to adopt a child.”
