We can assume Donald is lying.

This is always a good assumption .... if you ignore one simple fact. This fact goes to the heart of american delusion, it is the source of all the things that make no sense, it is the source of the paranoia, it is the source of our polarized electorate.
There are certain things that congress (and the presidents do) that do not fit into their political persona. For example, Reagan's economic policies were very very liberal, while bill clinton's were very very conservative.
Why is this and why do people not understand it? Because the most important thing is to keep the public ignorant. No one in congress can or will say that illegal immigration is an integral part of our economy and it will not be stopped, however, this is the meaning of all their actions. Both sides agree on this, just as both sides agreed on the extremist right-wing Patriot Act or the extremist left-wing bank bailouts.
