If true, this is a disaster of epic proportions for Trump. It doesn't matter how many illegal aliens he deports; if he caves and begins to grant official status to any of them, it undermines him with his base. And rightly so.
Obama's amnesty was an actual, "we will give you papers" amnesty. This article is talking about "guidance" and "priorities":
My take is that this is a deliberate attempt at sabotage by deception. It's one thing to give actual amnesty paperwork to an illegal, quite another to say you're going to focus on capturing and deporting the people actually committing additional crimes on top of being here illegally. You have to start somewhere and those people are often in contact with law enforcement anyway.
There's a big difference between choosing priorities and giving people legal amnesty paperwork. Let's keep that in mind.
