GOP SENATORS MOVE TO STOP TRUMP DEPORTING ILLEGALS

Closet gay Lindsey Graham wants to keep young illegals in US.
Trump was elected against all the odds by a massive groundswell of the popular vote, which would have been even greater if the establishment had not been entirely united in demonizing him 24-7 for over a year. Much of this support was essentially because Trump was seen as a strong anti-immigration candidate. 

But whether he is or not, moves are already under way on both sides of the aisle to water down and defeat any possible anti-immigrant legislation:
Three Republican senators are working with Democrats to shield about 750,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation if Trump cancels a 2012 order from President Barack Obama that let them stay in the U.S.

Lawmakers want to “ensure that children who were brought here by their parents, through no fault of their own, are able to stay and finish their education and continue to contribute to society,” said Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona. Republicans Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are joining him on a measure drafted by the No. 2 Democratic leader, Dick Durbin of Illinois, that will be introduced after the new Congress convenes Jan. 3.

Will Trump be able to oppose these moves by forces in what is now his own party, and does he want to? In short, has Trump taken over the GOP or has the GOP taken over Trump?
